Hi,
Sometimes a motor can start to run backwards... on an indoor fan it is usually because the air inside for some reason started the fan backwards while it was off and then when power is applied it continues to run backwards... once this happens the fan is ruined and it often will not atrt the right way even after the air problem is solved...
You will need to replace the motor and see if you can figure out why there was reversed air flow in your system...

Replace compacitor on Carrier 5 ton 3 phase AC


Your 3 phase unit should not have a capacitor. I'm guessing it's single phase. If it's a single capacitor than the compressor should not be going to it also. To test the motor, common to start plus common to run should equal the ohms you get between start and run. For instance, 1.2 ohms+ 2.2 ohms= 3.4 ohms. Follow the wiring diagram on the inside of the door, send model number!!

My condenser fan is running backward


An abrupt cycle of power can cause a motor to run backwards. If you turn the power off again and wait 10 seconds or so (enough for blade to stop spinning) it should run the right way. Put the capacitor back the other way and try again.

The outside fan in my carrier unit will not stop running when temp inside has been reached?


There can be multiple problems with your situation, one being a stuck condenser fan motor contactor/relay, a shorted motor, bad control board, etc. If you could at least check the contactor that controls the CFM and see if it is pulled in that could help narrow down the search for the answer.

38CKC060 Carrier. Outdoor unit-fan does not spin, noise and very hot inside the cage!


It sounds like your fan motor is burnt up. If the noise you are hearing is coming from the motor itself, then it's going to have to be replaced. One way to check this also is to turn the unit off and try to turn the fan blades by hand, if you cant get to it, then use something skinny and long enough to drop through the opening on top. If there is any resistance, than its difinitly a bad motor. If the noise you are hearing is coming from the compressor, then your fan motor still might have a chance and only needs a capacitor which is a round or oval part inside the units electrical compartment. Depending on how mechanically inclined you are, it is possible to fix these yourself. Just a warning though, if your fan hasn't been running and the compressor has, it can or could burn up the compressor also. This is another reason why it can be hot inside the cage. Your compressor will go into internal lockout if it gets to hot and will not come back on until it cools, but it can only handle so much. Hope this points you in the right direction and good luck!

Fan motor runs backwards


Make sure the capacitor is connected to the start lead, not the run lead(s). Also some fans come with some wires you can switch to reverse the direction. If your motor has them there will be 4 and the label on the motor will tell you how to connect them. Let me know if you need more assistance or if this helps.

MODEL # CARRIER 38XD124300


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.
