You have to go to an HVAC supply. Take the old motor with you so they can match the numbers. A universal motor is usually o.k. if the mounting matches. Depending on where you live this can be almost impossible as most supply houses will not sell to consumers.But, give it a try. If they ask for an account say you'll open a cash account; might work. Good luck

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.

Intertherm air conditioner has a rumbling noise and vibration in the condenser.


Could be a bearing problem in the compressor or fan motor. It could also be just loose compressor mounting bolts. Open it and take a look.

Condenser fan motor


It would be easier to get the data from the condenser fan motor than attempt to match AC unit model numbers. If unreadable then remove the fan motor and take to someone to match with the one you have. That is what I do, Thanks Sea Breeze
Make sure you mark your wiring before removal.

I am a service mechanic who responded to a call in a trailer that had a 4 ton down flow air handler that had a bad transformer. After replacing it, and observing it run, I noticed a gurgling noise coming...


Problem is the owner said this is an on going problem. Was it even before this last coil was installed? He may have an over sized air handler, under sized duct work.
Clogged coils (or smashed) causes high static pressure and will pull or blow off condensate. I had a system doing this and found out (after much effort) internal duct insulation was blocking the supply air duct work.
Make sure after fixing to install trap on the drain.

A/c unit not cooling


if it is making strange noises during operation it is going out on high pressure due to the condenser fan not running , check the capacitor for the fan to make sure it has not expanded also check if motor is getting proper voltage , is capacitor is good and motor has proper voltage supplied then you have a bad motor and should be replaced with new capacitor.

It sounds like your condenser fan motor may be locked up or the capacitor that helps give the condenser fan motor a kick to get it started may be defective. Try turning your system on and using a long screwdriver try to push the fan blade on the condenser fan motor to see if it will run normally if you give it the starting boost it needs.If it does run at full speed and doesn't over heat or start and then slow down then you probably only need to replace a simple 10-12$ capacitor. If it barely turns, makes an odd humming sound or overheats etc. then you will have to replace the condenser fan motor. This is assuming that the outdoor condenser has the 220v supplied and the 24v supplied to the compressor relay, that the compressor relay is engaged and suppling 220v to the condenser fan motor.
