Question about Fujitsu 12C1 Air Conditioner
AC unit has been tripping the circuit breaker at times over the summer. Taking a look at it, the fan motor appears to be almost shot. I need the part number and a suggestion on where to look for one of these.
First, is it in warranty? If so, call the installer. Fan motors don't usually cause the breaker to trip, and usually if they go bad, that's it. They don't work again. I would look at the compressor. Also change the air filter and clean the condenser and evaporator coils. BUT, if you want to replace the motor, read the I.D. label on it. You may need to remove it to do this, but it will have all the info you need. With this information, go to the local appliance parts store, and they can match it up with something that will work. Most of these motors pull no more than 8 amps, so for one to trip the breaker, which is at least 20 amps, I assume, the internal overload would turn it off before that happened. I would bet that when the breaker tripped, it was a hot day. Clean the outside coil, a hose will do fine. and change the air filter at least every 3 months, depending on hoiw much its used.
