Question about Carrier 38CKC036 Air Conditioner
The condenser fan runs backwards,
YOU COULD HAVE A BAD RUN CAPACITOR. UNFORTUNITALY THERE UNITE USE A DUAL PURPOSE CAPACITIOR. 40 UFD FOR THE COMPRESSOR AND 4 OR 5 UFD FOR THE FAN. SOMETIMES WHEN THE 4 OR 5 UFD CAPACITOR GOES BAD THE FAN CAN RUN BACKWARDS AND MORE SLOWLY. TRY SHUTTING THE UNIT DOWN AT THE DISCONNECT WAIT 5 MINUTES AND WHEN YOU RESTORE POWER USE A SCREWDRIVER TO GIVE THE FAN A PUSH IN THE CORRECT DIRECTION. IF IT DOES RUN IN THE CORRECT DIRECTION, TRY REPLACING THE CAPACITOR.

Sounds like you had a condenser fan replaced ok you just have verify if the fan is a reversible one there is like a plug type connector on top of fan all you have to do is swap the position of the plug ex. if black / white to white/black that changes the rotation. check against the diagram it should be for the CCW position.
