I do believe you will find the Mother Board is the cause of your problem. I also believe your original motor was ok. The motor runs on DC voltage. There are 3 wires to the motor. The red wire is a sensor wire. The other 2 wires should provide 12 to 13 or so volts DC to the motor. If it is not the mother board is bad.
I hope I helped. supertechks

Poured a beer and noticed temperature reading of 56F. Compressor not running. Notice a periodic clicking sound.


The clicking sound is the compressor overload tripping out and resetting. For whatever reason, bad capacitor, bad relay or locked up compressor....the compressor is not starting. Of course it could also be overheated due to a defective condensor fan motor or extremely blocked condensor coil.

I have an amana 90 home air conditioner w/ a amana prestige compressor. compessor runs but cooling fan not turning ,fan is not locked up and unit has power .of course w/fan not turning home is not...


Could be a couple of reasons for this:
1. Condensor fan motor bad.
2. Condensor fan motor loss of power.
3. Condensor fan motor capictor bad.

Unit has control for fan for low ambient operation and unit is low on freon telling fan its cold out side and dont run.
Hope this helps. wally

Aircon split unit in summer start up ,condensor fan and compressor are running ,after +- 3minutes condensor fan stops and compressor keep on running.What can cause this problem?


Check all your wires and connections of your condensor fan. If there are damaged or overheated wires or connections, correct them. Make sure connections are tight.
Check for "play" in the motor shaft. Hold the tip of the shaft and try moving it side-to-side in all directions. If there is any "play", the bearings are bad and the motor needs to be replaced. Up-and-down play is normal......do not confuse that with side-to-side play.
When the motor first locks up, while running, try turning by hand (BE CAREFUL). If the motor is tight, the bearings are bad. You might be able to buy a little time by oiling the bearings, but once they lock up, they generally will remain troublesome and need replaced.
Also make sure the condensor coil is clean.....wash it off with a hose.
I hope you find this information to be very helpful to you as a solid jumping off point moving foward. :-)

Think our refridgerator motor went smell of smoke but is still cool will it burn


Check to see if your condensor fan motor is running, should be behind the refrigerator backing plate and close to your compressor. Usually caused by a very dirty condensor unit. You have to vacuum, brush or blow out the condensor coils at least once a year to prevent overheating damage and to save 100.00 to 300.00 a year in electricity. If this is not the problem then let me know if the smell is coming from inside the freezer, refer section, or underneath.

Evaporator comes on, but the condensor unit does'nt.


Have u checked at the compressor unit. There is a contactor than energizes the compressor is this contactor getting supply when u turn on the evaporator this contactor get energized see if this happens. If this is energized and you are getting supply to the compressor and compressor doesn't turn on 1.) compressor has thermal protection this might be faulty 2.) or the compressor has too much freon 3.) check if the windings of the compressor motor are not short to ground

The AC in my 2004 Honda Accord only blows cool air when I am driving at higher speeds. When I drive slow or am stopped, it's warm hair coming out. My mechanic said the compressor isn't working properly...


it is a premature failure, That does indicate a bad/failiing compressor, or low oil charge, to low freon. If you trust the mechanic then go witht he compressor replacement and condensor. Unfortunately most oarts stores/shops require the condesor to be replaced for warranty purposes on compressor replacements.
