Question about Goodman CKL24AR24 Air Conditioner
Outside fan motor runs backward
However, if it is the ORIGINAL motor, check the dual run capacitor for proper microferrad value. It may be that it is swelled up on top and that is a direct indication it is a fouled capacitor. If the top is not pregnant or swelled, and it still looks like the top of a soda pop can, you will need a microferrad meter.
Disconnect ALL power to the condensing unit. If in doubt, kill the power to home. Remove 1 wire from the capacitor, the brown one or the one that is marked "FAN" and set your meter to Mfd, measure with your leads the value between the COMMON and FAN terminals. They should be within 6% of the rating on the capacitor. There is no rule of thumb here, you must know the correct value and see if it is equal or within the 6%. If it is under the 6%, you will need to replace the DUAL RUN CAPACITOR. No question, because it is a dual run cap, it controls the Compressor also. Best to change the whole capacitor with that of equal value.
