SOURCE: blower motor does not respond?

First, Open the Blower Access panel door of your air handler and touch the motor to see if it is hot to the touch.
If it is hot to the touch, turn everything off of approximately 1 hour.
Then with the blower access panel door off, turn the FAN back on and listen for any sounds. If the motor does not start, try spinning the blower wheel with your cautious, because the motor could start up while you turn the wheel. If this happens, chances are good you have either a bad capacitor or bad bearings. To test the bearings, turn off all the power. Grab the end of the shaft and start trying to move it from side-to-side in every direction. Do not move it up-and-down. Up-and-down will not hurt anything, but it will not tell you anything either. If there is any movement side-to-side, the bearings are bad and the motor will need to be replaced. If you do not feel side-to-side movement, then there is a good chance it's the capacitor.....take to A/C supply house....they will test and offer you a replacement if it is needed.
If the motor is cold and it doesn't try to spin and it doesn't try to run on it's own after you spin it, then the problem is in the control circuit. Try putting a jumper at R & G. If the motor then runs, you have a problem with either your thermostat or the wiring from your thermostat to your Air Handler. If after jumpering R & G the motor does not try to run, then you may have a failed blower relay or a failed board (if the relay is internal in the board). Let me know if you need additional help. :-)

Amana PTAC PTH093E Fan runs at single speed only regardless of setting-auto/low/high Hot or cool air is coming out so compressor/heat coil is working. Reset unit and replaced fan motor-no change.

I've replaced many Amanda control boards. They have micro relays attached to the board. These relays are about a half inch by 1 inch in size, and control line voltage to the compressor and blower motor, and give up quite often. Its probably the board if its a digital controlled board. If it has manual, turn to select, type knob, it will be in that fan section knob. Hope this helps!

Amana heat pump emergency heat comes on but blower will not start. The call for heat comes in and the heating element(s) glow red for a few seconds and then there is a "click" and the heating...

Check the blower motor capicator. It should be mounted close to the motor with 2 wires to it (brown,brown/white).
Turn the blower on the thermostat and spin the squirrel cage by hand and see if it runs after by itself. If it does then definitely the capicator is bad .If it still doesn't run then check to see if there is voltage going to motor.
If thermostat is calling for fan and there is voltage present at the motor terminal then the motor is bad

Fan will not turn on. heat coils heat up but blower will not spin. i installed a new blower motor and a new control board but still getting same results

When you changed the motor, did you change the capacitor? If the motor hums, but doesn't run, the capacitor may be the problem. Also, about a week or so ago, I changed a furnace blower and capacitor only to have it shut down again after 2 days. I talked with the vendor, and they told me that they had received a "bad batch of motors" and replaced the one that I had purchased.
If you didn't replace the capacitor, you should, then I would suspect the motor.

Best regards, and I hope this helps. --W/D--

No power to ac indoor fan motor

sounds like you might have a bad control board. try putting a jumper wire on the control board low voltage terminals R and G your fan should come on and run if you have 120v power to fan motor. double check that you do have 120 leaving board and going to motor. if no 120 bad board if you do have 120 bad motor. if it is the board it likely has a bad blower relay which is common in amana models and goodman equipment.

Fan will not work


Sound like the blower motor is bad. They have a high and a low speed it is probaly hooked up to low speed not high. The only way to tell if it is the motor or the board is to see if you can change motor wiring on the board. If the board is bad you will need the make,model# and serial# of furnace. You should be able to call a local heating and cooling company and they will be able to get you a control board or a blower motor. You can also check counity on motor windings is the low speed is out. Have you checked the start compasator on the motor
