Question about Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
One of the first things to check if your condensing, or outside units fan wont come on, The capacitor, or the fan motor is usually the problem. Turn off the disconnect, open up your access panel and the capacitor looks like a silver cylinder, it may look bloated, or misfigured. If you see that. It is the capacitor. If it is normal, you can check your fan motor. If you have a multimeter, you can check the fan to see if its bad. Good luck

If the fan motor will not run, firstly, have the motor "capacitor "checked On many occasions, the cap had to be replaced and all was well.Worth your while to have the cap tested as the complete fan assy. is rather pricey.

Hello my name is Heath it will be my pleasure to assist you. The first thing to do is check the capacitor for the fan look at it and see if it is swollen or pitted. If the capacitor is okay then the fan motor may have gone bad.

It is possible that your fan motor is burnt up, but I would say about 75% of the time, its the capacitor. The capacitor is the round or oval component that is inside the electrical compartment. To check this visually, if its bubbled up at the top then its bad, if there are no signs visually, then you will need a multi-meter to check the mfds on the cap. If you have one that is available, set it to the mfd setting, pull the wires off of the capacitor, place your leads to two of the terminals, and read what your meter says. Compare it to the rating on the side of your capacitor. It should say something like 25mfd or 25/5%. They vary in sizes. If it's below 5 mfds than what its rated, it needs to be replaced. You can pick these up at a local A/C supply house without being licensed. You will need the information from the old one including the voltage. Best bet is to bring it with you though. The best way to check the fan motor is to try and turn the blades, if there is any resistance, than it needs to be replaced, but there are times when the motor can turn freely and still be burnt up. Just a few things to try out anyways. Make sure you disconnect all the electrical before doing any trouble-shooting and the capacitor stores electricity so ground out all the terminals on the capacitor as soon as possible. Hope this helps and good luck!
