SOURCE: Outdoor fan motor is not running fast enough?

Thanks for the suggestion. I figured out the problem. The replacement fan motor I bought was general fan motor. it had 5 wires. Two of them went to the capacitor (this unit has combo capacitor, 3 leg). I followed the schematic diag on the motor and connected one leg to the C and the other leg to the FAN on capacitor. what was happening, the start winding was working against the run winding in the motor. Once I switch the wires in the capacitor, fan ran at full speed. thanks again for your reply.

SOURCE: fan motor in window ac/heat unit turns slow or not at all

Did you change the capacitor when you changed the fan? If you didn't you need to. And that capacitor is a dual one running the compressor and fan. So make a diagram of it what wires go where the area is real tight and some wires are the same color. You might make labels to be a little easier. Also get the same size capacitor when you change it.

SOURCE: RV air conditioner. Compressor running, fan stops before cool

The fan motor is getting hot and going off on the internal overload in the motor.
This is caused by either a low voltage, a bad capacitor, or tight or dry bearings in the motor.
To check the bearings turn the power off to the unit, then spin the fan blade if it spins freely then the bearings are ok.
To check the capacitor you will need some kind of tester or you can buy a capacitor and replace it, that's what a lot of people do. They usually don't cost very much.
To check the voltage you will need a voltmeter and measure the volts at the unit.

SOURCE: Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan stops spinning after 15 mins

Capacitor, dirty condencer coil causing the motor amps to run too high. But most likely worn bearing on blade side of motor causing it to pull to one side causing it to over heat and shut down. Sleve bearings should have no side play.

SOURCE: Fan does not work.

I'm working on one right now and I believe it's the capacitor. It's hard to find this capacitor. So far I've tryed 3 HVAC suppliers and none have this rare capacitor. First UNPLUG THE UNIT. Take the phillips screws out of each side in the front. Then take the 3 screws out of the face of the control. There are 3 white common wires and a dark brown compressor wire and a light brown fan wire. Take the 1/4 inch screw out and unplug the wires and find another one.

Hello, our fridge has stopped working, the fan and motor are still running but the unit wont get cold anymore.I think it might be a freon problem but I cant be sure. The motor and fan are running constant


Your right! A freon leakage system problem cause no cold anymore.
But a temp control must be check.
A defective temp control will also cause no cold of the freezer.
The same also if compressor motor is defective even though it is running.
Call a service technician to verify the trouble of your fridge.
I hope I give you idea regarding your fridge problem.

The fan motor will stop working, but when I try to turn the fan blades, it turns pretty freely. When the unit is running for a few minutes, it trips the house breaker.


Hello, i would check the capacitor on tne unit, if it starts by turning by hand that means the capacitor is either weak, or bad.

My dehumidifier makes squeaking noises when running. How do I stop this?


Hi,

With the unit unplugged, open the cover and check the alignment of the fan. If the fan is stuck or rubbing against the fan cowling, adjust the fan motor's mounting hardware so that the fan turns freely.

Take care.

WHIRLPOOL FRIG AND FREEZER NOT COOLING EHOUGH


Well there a couple things you can check. Pull away from wall and remove the lower cover over the compressor. Either the compressor is stopping on and off too much or the evaporator fan or the condenser fan is stopping while you do not know it. Tell me how hot the top of compressor is. We may have a bad motor starter and start capacitor along with overload. Let me know what you find and I may very well get you going again, Sea Breeze

Whirlpool central ac stopped blowing air, cool or fan only. compressor outside running and attic unit on but no air. Solution??


If you are refering to the indoor fan that is not running, but that the outdoor condenser is operating, the next place to check is the circuit board in the air handler, this is the control for the fan motor. the relay may be bad that actuates the fan circuit. if the relay is bad there will be no power to the fan motor. If you have power to the fan motor then the motor is bad and the motor and capacitor should be replaced.

Air conditioner motor


Your condenser fan costs less an $100 if you install it yourself. First with the system on and calling for cooling take a screw driver and spin the fan blade. If the fan comes on then it has a bad bearing, if it doesn't it's electrical. With power off remove the access panel and inspect the wiring etc.. Possible run capacitor.
