Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

My E.G. Air Cond.Compressor/condenser fan motor was replaced because it burnt; I replaced it with an O. Smith Electric Fan Motor. I also changed the capacitor. The new fan motor runs full speed for about 10 minutes and stops while the compressor is still runing. I need help to assure I have it wired corectly. I may need a manual which I do not have.

These motors have a wiring diagram on the motor. Make sure you don't have two different speeds connected together.

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.

Yes, if you changed the three post capacitor that runs the fan and compressor, and the fan is still getting hot and shutting down until it cools off, you may have bushings out of the motor or an internal short. Sounds like you have a job ahead of you of changing your condenser motor. If you do this yourself just contact me I will step you through it . Mark

sounds like a contactor problem. this is the switch that kicks the outside fan amd compressor on. If the inside fan runs it will be on the outside.

My goldstar turns on and hums, but no cold air. then it blows a circuit breaker


First you should check the power for short circuit, second you have to check the fan motor if it is burnt or not,third check whether the compressor is burnt or not.These are the three reasons.If the powering is short circuited change the cables from the mccb.If the fan motor is burned out replace the fan motor or rewind the fan motor.If the compressor is burnt out replace the compressor, evacuate the refrigeration system and charge the refrigerant.

Condenser fan running backwards on heat pump


I am having the same problem, sometimes it runs in the wrong direction, blowing the air down. Sometimes something gets tripped and I need to turn the thermostat to off and wait a bit then restart it. If I am lucky it will run int the correct direction and also will warm the house. Sometimes it send nothing but cold air to the house's forced air.

Compressor motor run in high ampere and then shut off


Check compressor capacitor to see if it’s good then check the contactor points and see if they are burnt or discolored if so then replace and make sure no wires are loose or burnt, then check the condenser coil to see if it’s dirty. Check to make sure outdoor fan is running and at full speed, if not then check the fan capacitor,and with the power and unit off spin the fan blade to see if it spins freely, if not the bearings are bad in the motor and it needs to be replaced.

Fan motor slow on a/c


If it is making a continuous noise, and your air conditioner is still not cooling at all, there may be a serious problem with one or more of these areas:

  • Compressor
  • Condenser
  • Evaporator

  • OR

    This could the problem the with short circuit or defective component you need to check :
  • Compressor
  • Overload and/or relay
  • Thermostat (Open thermostat)
  • Burnt wiring
  • Bad selector switch
  • Capacitor

  • Good luck....

    GE Central A/C Unit about 30 yrs old; condenser fan stops after a short time.


    I gather that it is the outdoor fan motor that runs a bit then stops.

    Fan motors that stop by themselves are overheating and going into self-protect. The fact that you replaced the motor and capacitor opens up a whole world of "which wire is in the wrong place". I could do this if I could see it, but I can't see it. You're probably going to wind up calling a service man to sort out the wiring.

    Hmm It's passable that the condenser fan motor is not spinning at speed or is running for a period of time and over heating and the Condenser fan motors internal overload protection trips and takes it of line shortly thereafter, of course, the compressor internal overload trips and takes it of line. Spraying with the water hose sped up the cool down on the internal overloads but I'm afraid it probably didn't do much to help the original problem. You could try replacing the Fan condensing motor capacitor-(it's listed on the side of the motor if the capacitor cant be read) and oiling the motor if it has oil ports (2 small plugs located along the perimeter of each end of the motor). If the motor can be oiled and you replace the capacitor theres a fair chance you might get by another year without replacing the condenser fan motor. Charged capacitors pack a nasty jolt so be careful, hope this was helpful, GL!
    P.S. If it is the cond. fan motor and you replace it be sure you get a sealed outdoor rated cond. fan motor and the appropriate rain guards are installed.
