The cap is usually next to the contactor on the outside unit and most are dual caos one terminal for fan marked "F" and one marked "H" for hermetic compressor and will have 2 mfd ratings at 370volt or 440 volt a.c. operation

Carrier Furnace LED Good, Blower does not kick on


Likely a variable speed blower. Very common to not get 24 to the blower. Carrier is notorious for bad blowers, double check for 240, don't believe it has a separate module, but that's probably all it is. Likely have to replace entire motor. Good Luck

I have an old Intertherm gas-fired furnace, Model MGH-055AB which ceased operating last night. It was quite warm when I arrived home, and when I set the heat up a little, began to hum, but the fan would...


Tom P's answer is generally correct: The motor start capacitor is usually not the problem. However, in some cases, particularly on older furnaces, where there were capacitors of certain make and production run will prematurely fail. This happened in March on a mobile home HVAC unit where both the blower fan and condenser fan motor capacitors failed open circuit. Both caps were of the same Mfg, and production lot.
Here is a suggestion (for you or an electrically inclined friend): Locate a substitute motor capacitor having similar Mfd (or MF) and Voltage ratings. Remove power from the unit. Reach into the blower squirrel cage and spin it to verify that the shaft is not frozen. Pull the wires from the existing capacitor noting color and location. Connect the wires to the substitute capacitor and secure it place. Apply power and turn on the blower. A no start? Motor replacement time.

You can hear furnace running but the blower never comes on.


do you mean the inside blower or the outside unit blower ... actually the problem might be a similar part in either case ... the blower motor has a capacitor mounted on it or near it ... it will be marked something like 160 uf at 200vac or similar . it will have wires attached or plugged into it .. the capacitor is what gives the blower motor a signal to tell it which way to start turning ... once the blower is running then the capacitor is no longer needed ... its only used to get the motor started ... if its bad then the motor will hum but wont turn .. if you manually spin the fan then the motor will take off in the direction you spun it (dont get hit ) .. a new capacitor is not expensive .. you need the numbers off the old "starting" capacitor or just take it with you to the parts place to match it up .. you may be able to order it from Ruud ... a HVAC repair person would likely be able to bring one with him for repair if you give him the numbers off the part or the model number of the furnace .. make sure the blower turns freely by hand (with power off) .. if not it may need bearings lubed .. ..

Carrier 58 Series Furnace Blower Motor Won't Shut Off


Yes. If the high limit is tripped, the furnace will bring on the fan continuously until the limit resets. Often, they will not reset if tripped repeatedly. If the furnace is too large for your application, you probably are not able to move enough air to keep the heat exchanger cool enough.

Blower fan keeps trying start


Replace the start capacitor on the blower motor.
If that does not correct the problem replace the motor.
