Sound more like the cap, but if the motor is raging hot, it could be the motor, another thing it could is improper voltage although less likely. But Goodmans/ do have this weird fan relay issue were they just bite it some times. I would say its either gonna be your fan relay or capacitor, if you don't have a meter i would just go to Johnstone or whoever is you local supply house that handles goodman and ask for the fan really and the capacitor, bring your model and serial numbers, the fan capacitor is likely no bigger than a 15mfd and no smaller than 5mfd but they will be able to know, it will probably cost you 30 dollars max most likely around 15.

I have a New air 1400H and the blower fan has broke, can you tell me where to find replacement parts for this unit? I understand it has been discontinued for almost 5 years. Thanks for your help.Cont


You may have to remove the complete blower assembly, remove any dead squirrels, and take it around to various appliance parts suppliers to obtain a suitable replacement. You may need only a replacement motor if the squirrel cage is intact

Why does my ac freeze up


Hello, air conditioners will freeze either due to low airflow.....such as dirty filter, dirty evaporator coil, weak or not running blower motor. Also, a low refrigerant charge can cause the unit to freeze up.

Ac squirrel cage fan motor noise


Could be bearings going out, or a squirrel cage rubbing the blower housing, a squirrel cage blade that came loose, or a capacitor.

Outside runs fine but inside squirrel cage motor fails


Go to the thermostat and place the fan switch in "on" and see if the fan runs. If it doesn't then check the circuit breakers. If the circuit breakers are on turn off the power and spin the fan by hand to see if it turns freely. If it does then check the fan capacitor. Let me know what you find.

Running not blowing air


sounds as if fan isnt attached to motor shaft. There is a set screw on the fan cage that if it loosens the shaft will turn inside of the fan not turning the fan( also known as a squirrel cage) You need to get access to the fan motor and see first if its shaft is rotating, if it is see if the squirrel cage is turning if not the set screw located on the inner collar of the squirrel cage needs to be tightened. Thie set screw is more than likly an allen set screw.

Rheem A/C unit makes a clicking sound when


Shut down the unit and turn the power off. Take the cover off of the blower housing and feel around within the squirrel cage. It sounds like something may have been drawn up into the blower. Also it is possible that the blower wheel might have thrown a balance weight and caused the wheel to become unbalanced. It could also be the motor about to go out but since I can't hear it myself, I'm trying to cover all the bases.
