Fan not working on my CPLE36-1C AC unit outside. Why?

Hello there, I have two Goodman AC units for my home. The one that is not working is a CPLE36-1C. When I turn up the AC for that unit, I noticed the fan on the unit outside does not work. I could feel that the fan motor is getting warm/hot, but the fan does not spin. What could be the problem? Would I need to replace the fan motor? Or could it be something else? thank you. tim t

Hello Tim First Turn the power off! Try to turn the fan blade with a twig or something.Is it tight ? It should turn freely.If yes open the cover where the wires connect & check if the capisitor is expanded or leaking if so replace that with the SAME one (uf value&volts).Check for burnt wires also.The capicitor is a round or oval shaped can (looks like a large battery) with wires cliped/pluged in on top.Next let the motor cool off 1 hour and restore power.Does it BUZZ for a short time then stop?If yes its new motor time.Good luck

Hello
There are a few things here that could be wrong.
1 Fan motor start capacitor is bad.Silver battery looking device on side of fan.Remove and replace with a new one.

2 Contactor for fan motor is pitted or burnt .If this is the case you will need a new contactor.

3 Fan motor is bad.Check top two before assuming this.
Check all fuses and circut breakers also.

1 posible cause.the thermostat supplies 24 volts to the outside unit to control the contactor if you hear a ligth huming on the outside unit this is the being activated. if this is the case then
check to see if any ants are in or around the unit see video, they will usually climb to dry areas before during or after a storm and for some reason they like the contactor if this is the case cut all power to the unit and clean contactor spray the area around the unit with an insecticide ( not the contactor) replace cover and test unit.

You have a 10 year warranty on your AC. Call a Goodman rep and have it serviced. It will probably be a bad compressor capacitor. Bad wire or no refrigerant.
