Hello
Could be a bad low pressure cycle switch causing it to shut down after 5 min.Try jumping the switch and see what happens.

Another possibility is a bad fan contactor,if the contacts are burnt or pitted they will heat up and shut down on high heat.Have a look at the contacts replace if need be.

Make sure that the capacitor that was changed is of the same type and rating. If this is low then the fan can flutter off. So make sure the rating of the capacitor is correct , if not replace with a correct type. Make sure that the motor is not jammed, as it might heat and stop. Also the possibility of the motor failing should be checked if the motor is heating to stop- possible fault of the motor.

Condenser fan replaced one year ago, fan not turning but can hear motor


the answer to your problem is most likely the motor start capacitor. A AC motor can run in both directions. The start capacitor is used to cause the current to lag behined the voltage which determines the direction the motor will turn. Its posible the start and run capacitors are in one can. so changing one will change the other. However look for a wiring diagram. Do not asume that both capacitors are wired in properly. They may be fighting one another causeing premature failure.

We require condenser fan motors for Interclisa Carrier package (rooftop) air conditioner model AAD 250 (1980's model) model. Air conditioner - supply voltage 380 Volts 50 Hz AC. Condenser fan motor voltage...


Hi, this is an odd voltage 380 volts. Is it a 3 phase unit? To get a 220 volt 50hz condenser fan motor, you will have to go through a refrigeration/air conditioning parts house and order this. 60hz you would have no problem finding one in stock. Carrier is a good unit, and have been around for many years. You shouldn't have any problems locating one.
Sincerely,

PS You will need to go through a wholesale parts house.

Outdoor unit compressor when stareted up carring high amps with out changed from start winding to run winding .


There should not be a change from start to run winding on this unit. If it is running high amps (how do you know this? ) and the fan is running and clean condenser you probably have a failed run capacitor.

sounds like you had a condenser fan replaced ok you just have verify if the fan is a reversible one there is like a plug type connector on top of fan all you have to do is swap the position of the plug ex. if black / white to white/black that changes the rotation. check against the diagram it should be for the CCW position.
