Hi Tony. It sounds like you still need to replace the capacitor. The capacitor is located inside the electrical compartment on the outside condenser and will be either round or oval with 2 or more wires connected to it. They are usually held in place by a small metal strap and a screw. The motor that you have just bought will have a capacitor rating on it which will say how many Micro-Farads (Mfds) are needed. For example: 35uf/5% They usually run around $10.00 and will save you a ton of money replacing yourself. You can pick these up at your local A/C supply store. Just be sure to get the correct size and you should be good to go as long as you haven't burnt anything up by over-heating the motor. Hope this helps and good luck!

I have a Goodman CK18-1B ac unit.outside fan will run for awhile then just shut off, compressor stays running like it should


Are you heating or cooling? If cooling is the compressor overheating? Some outdoor fans run only when condenser reaches a certain temperature. If it is in fact a problem, a capacitor is much cheaper than a motor. Replace the cap, if it fixed it, awesome, if not, you compressor will be happy. Honestly does sound like the motor but go cap first. Best wishes!!

My goodman unit (1994) makes the loud noise, like a buzzing noise. The unit works, the blower blows air into the house, the air is cold, but the outside fan that blows across the condenser piping isn'


you need to replace your condensing fan motor. the noise you are hearing is the compressor working against a lot of pressure because the heat is building up in you condensing unit. Prolonged operation without an operating condensing fan motor will cause your compressor to burn up, and then you will have the cost of a compressor changeout to the cost of a condensing fan motor.

Do I need a new fan motor or capacitor or both?


You are on the right track. The motor bearings are tight if you can get some oil into the bearings and get the fan to spin Ok then you may not have to replace the motor. With the blade not spinning free the motor is over heating and shutting off on thermal overload. The capacitor may be weak but that won't help with the bearing being tight. The only other answer is to replace the motor and capacitor. if you can't get the blade to spin freely.

Goodman heatpump fan runs, condenser wont start


Either the condenser fan has bad bearings, or it has a defective fan capacitor.
Turn off the breaker to the outside unit.
Spin the fan blade by hand.
If the fan blade spins easily and will spin a few revolutions with no problem the fan bearings are good.
If not, replace the fan motor due to bad bearings.
I am pretty sure you fan motor is bad because with a bad capacitor the fan motor will not get up to speed and may just sit and overheat.
I'm leaning toward a bad fan motor.

Yes, if you changed the three post capacitor that runs the fan and compressor, and the fan is still getting hot and shutting down until it cools off, you may have bushings out of the motor or an internal short. Sounds like you have a job ahead of you of changing your condenser motor. If you do this yourself just contact me I will step you through it . Mark

Hi!!

This means that the condenser fan motor (outside unit) failed, this caused to build hi pressure and either activated a safety valve to release the extra pressure or blew a line and R22 Refrigerant escaped from system.

The fix is to replace motor fan and capacitor find the leak and refill system with R22 Refrigerant Gas. It is safe to turn on the Fan Only mode on the Thermostat until a HVAC Tech arrives.
To perform this job parts and labor included will cost: about $300 -.$400. Look on the Yellow Pages for a Tech in your neighborhood.

Good Luck!! Don't forget to Rate this post!!

The outside fan does not come on how do i fix this?


Hi, this fan is the condenser fan motor. The motor has probably failed, bearings or open windings, You can check the capacitor to see if it is faulty, leaking any oil, swollen like its ready to burst. If so, change it out. When the condenser fan motor fails, always replace the run capacitor with it, it must be changed with the new motor. You can remove the fan guard on top after the unit has been running, and the motor body should be very hot. With the power off, turn the blade to see how it turns, if the bearings are frozen or its tight you will no. You will have to buy one at a appliance parts house or if you know a contractor, they can get one at cost for you at a a/c parts house. These motors go out a lot as they work hard in the heat. When we get our first heat wave here, this is what we do first is start getting lots of calls to replace these motors. Check these things and let me know.
Sincerely,

Well when i turn on a/c condensingcome on and


is your indoor fan motor noisy? Right after it shuts off feel if it is extremely warm (carefull, may burn you if you leave your hand on too long). If it excessively hot, the motor is tripping on overloads located in the motor itself, probably the bearings are dragging. Check to see if it spins freely when spun by hand. If not replace motor. Make sure power is off while putting your hands in or around the fan

Exhaust Fan (outdoor blower?) shuts off after 1 minute, and motor feels hot


sounds like your condenser fan (the outside blower) has gone bad or the capacitor (small silver box looking thing attached to the motor). the way to test the cap. is with a digital meter that can test for micro farads. the reason it gets hot is you have electricity going to the motor. normally it would transition that energy to motion energy. however since the motor is not turning that energy has to go some where, so it turns into heat energy. your best bet is to replace your condenser fan and capacitor. that is if your comfortable with that type of repair. otherwise call someone out to repair and tell them what your make and model is so they can bring the parts with them and save you some money. hope that helps
