Question about Amana Heating & Cooling
(IMPORTANT) Disconnect all power before you work on any part of the electrical system on the outside condenser and the indoor unit.
Yes, and it will save you a ton of money by doing this yourself. Besides the basic tools, adjustable wrench, 1/4 in and 5/16 in sockets ( nut drivers or a drill will work best), the only special tools you will need is a fan blade puller, which is just like a pulley puller. Other than that, it's all pretty straight forward. Remember each wires location before you disconnect them. You will need to have the following information to buy a new motor-
H/P example: 1/4 HP
RPM example: 1075 RPM
Volts example: 208/230v
The best way is to pull the motor and take it with you to the supply store. Make sure you get a "REVERSIBLE" rotation motor. This will be to insure it turns the right way after you install it. When you turn the unit back on, it should blow air out of the top of the unit. Installation is reversed from how you took it out, but you will want to make sure the position of the fan blade is the same when you set it back into the unit and by that I mean on the shaft of the motor. The only other thing you will need is the new capacitor for the new motor, it will tell you what MFDs you will need on the new motor, just ask when you pick up the motor from the supply store. You will need to buy these things from an Heating and Air supply store, but you do not have to be licensed for these particular things. If you are even somewhat mechanically inclined, this shouldn't be a problem at all. Hope this helps and good luck!
