Goodman GMP125-5 Air Handler

My blower is not starting, I measure 207VAC across the starter cap, when it is trying to start. The motor (cage) spins freely until it is energized... Any suggestion?

The furnace is kicking on, the flames start, and then after about 2 minutes it shuts off because the blower iss not starting

It has a 12uf 370VAC Ge Capacitor CAP125370

Re: Goodman GMP125-5 Air Handler


if its spinning free until motor is energized motor may have bad armature or brushes.

If you energize blower and manually give fan motor a spin will it start if so replace cap.

Hi i have an goodman capf036a2a furnace and when i cut on the heat the burner light but the blower motor doesnt turn its makes a humming noise and the code it reads is #33 roller blowout. do i need to...

Since the motor is humming we know it is recieving voltage, try spinning the blower wheel by hand and see if the motor starts up, if it does the capacitor needs to be replaced, if not the blower motor needs to be replaced.

My outside unit is working but it doesnt seem that the inside unit is blowing or working. It just hums and shuts off. Model is Gmp100-5. Is the fan/blower motor gone? Where can I find the part?

Hi, if the motor hums that tells you there is power to it already. Take a look at the run capacitor mounted on the side of the blower housing. Look it over for signs of oil leakage, swollen out of shape. Its more then likely a 5 microfarad UFx 370volt run capacitor depending on the size of the H.P. of the motor. Like the other fellow said, you can spin the wheel/cage to make sure the bearings are not froze up. Most blower motors are air-over motors and are oil type bearings. You can remove the run cap and take it to any appliance parts house to have it checked out with a ohm meter before you buy one. That will rule that out. More then likely, you have lost a winding in the motor it self and will need to have it replaced. Its either a 2 or 3 speed motor, medium for heat and high for your a/c. Low is extra. For about a $1.15 you can get a zoom spout oiler at the hardware store and remove the caps/plugs to put a few drops of oil on the bearings. This motor will get very dirty and dusty as it is where the return air comes back through your a/c filter. They do get hot and burn out due to this. Before I would go out and buy a motor if you are lucky enough to find one at a appliance parts house, I would oil the bearings if they are not sealed, look at the back end for a plug or cap first, and have the run capacitor checked for proper UF as it has to be with in 10% of its rated value. If this doesn't take care of it, I would recommend having a tech come out to install this motor. It is one of the most difficult to change if you have never installed one. Call around and get a estimate. I would charge you a flat rate of $175.00 complete with new run capacitor, not by the hour. It takes around 1 & 1/2 hours to do and have them clean the blower vanes while it is out also. The shaft size on the motor is 1/2"x6" long, maybe a 1/3 to 3/4 H.P., 1075 R.P.M.'s. I hope I have been of help and given you some direction. Please keep this in mind when rating me as I know you will be kind. Please keep me posted on the outcome by my user name below.

Goodman GMT115-5B, loud noise when turned on

In the lower portion of the furnace you'll see where the blower housing is hung in the center of the furnace. There are two bolts you'll need to remove to pull out the whole housing. Depending on the size furnace you have you may have to unmount the control board and set it aside. Don't worry there is no need to remove the wires from the board. Once you have the housing out set it on its side (motor side down) and you'll see a shaft where the blower wheel mounts onto the motor shaft. There should be a bolt you can tighten. first loosen the bolt and put the housing right side up. after that center the wheel on the shaft so that neither of the sides of the wheel are rubbing on the housing once you find that spot where the wheel spins without rubbing tighten that bolt on the shaft and reinstall. should the problem persist you may need to replace the blower housing and/or wheel. I doubt the motor will have to be changed.

My goodman electric/gas pack started smelling like burnt motor then stopped blowing then shut down. Blower motor? (yes /no) What is replcement procedure..

(yes/no) verify the motor is bad by volt, amp draw, and ohmmeter. if bad, the repalcement is fairly straight forward the entire squirrel cage assembly is removed, cleaned, new motor and capacitor installed and then wired back in. Goodman has a five year warranty program on many of it's units, verify before spending money on a motor
