The condenser fan will not stay on


The condenser fan motor, on a standard a/c, is given power anytime the compressor comes on. If the compressor is still on when the fan motor goes off, the fan motor is failing or the run capacitor attached to it, usually by 2 brown wires, has failed. I can't see where you live,
(this is October), but if its below 70F outside when this happens its possible you have a temperature cycling control operating it and then that would become a normal function of the a/c. 3rd thing if its a heat pump that fan is operated by a circuit board and will have to be replaced by someone qualified to replace it. Good luck, hope this helps.

My goodman cental air system is having problems. First, the blower inside (furnace) keeps running for hrs after the outside condensor shuts down. Now, the condenser blower motor wont operate at full speed....


the cause of your indoor fan running all the time or for long time after your heat pump has stopped heating is the fan delay relay. It has welded its internal contacts together. If you take off the side below the control panel, the fan delay relay is normally mounted on the header where the fan discharges. Good news, the fan delay relay are fairly inexpensive and easily to change.

As far as the condensing fan motor not running at full speed, when it was changed, did the technician install the correct fan motor. Most condensing fan motors are either 875 rpm or 1175 rpm. They are exactly the same size and if the technician did not look closely he could have installed the wrong rpm motor. There is another possibility, he may have used the wrong capacitor. I have seen the condensing fan actually operate backwards at a lower than normal rpm. The fan if properly installed will discharge air upwards.

Uaka 024JAZ condensing unit comes on, fan and compressor start up, fan remains on, compressor shuts off in appx 1 min , pressures appear to be headed to normal op range. I did not see a run cap for this...


This unit uses a dual run capacitor. There is no start capacitor involved.

The dual run capacitor is possible weak, also check all the electrical connections for tight fitting connections with can cause motor/compressor overheating.
To test a capacitor properly you need the proper test meter capable of reading uf readings(within 6% of the stated rating on the capacitor) "C" common to "F" fan and "C" to "Herm" terminal, the higher rating for compressor and the lower for the outdoor fan. [(example= 25/3uf 370v) 25uf=compressor, 3uf=fan motor.]

The metal bar that runs down between the fridge and the freezer is very hot. The fridge and freezer still work.


Under normal operation, the metal separator should be warm to prevent condensation from forming. Since yours is getting too hot, the condenser fan is likely not working. The condenser fan moves air through the unit, cooling the compressor and maintaing a desired operating temperature. You can check this by removing the lower panel at the rear of the refrigerator. You should see a small fan near the compressor (the round black unit). The cause could be a bad fan motor or a bad main control board. Unplug the fan and test if there is voltage going to the fan while the compressor is on. If not, the likely cause is a bad controller board. If current is present, the fan motor is bad. In either case it is an easy fix. The parts are available on-line.

Good day,
On models with 2 compressors the condenser fan motor runs 24/7. It must since the compressors run randomly and that motor must be on since it handles both units.

Fan noise is subjective. It itself makes little noise but the blade does. If for example the blade was changed from the nylon style to a metal blade (good idea) then it would be somewhat louder.
If the noise is not objectionable then I would use it as is.

Subzero 630 hot door jamb


If the door jambs are hot, that is either a dirty condensor or a dead condensor fan motor. Make sure the condensor is vacuumed and check to see if the condensor fan is spinning. It should be running anytime either compressor is on. You can clear the service light by holdint the "alarm: button for 15 seconds or turning the unit off and then on again.
