How does it matter which direction condensor fan turns


Yes. The fan is designed to draw air through the condensing unit to expel heat generated by compression and heat exchange in the refrigeration system. If the fan is running the wrong way, heat will not be disipated correctly and the unit will not operate efficiently. You could end up damaging the system.

Easy way to check if ur condensor coil is clean


while in operation, with condensor fan running, hold a piece of thick paper up to condensor coil, let go of paper, ir it stays stuck to the coil, the fan is pulling air thru, cooling the coil temp. this is good. if the paper dont stay in place ur condensor coil is dirty and needs to be cleaned

Whether its a central air unit or a wall unit, make sure the condensor is clean and air can flow thru it
make sure the condensor fan is running, the condensor fan keeps the compressor from over heating
if the condensor fan stops running the compressor will over heat and trip the circuit breaker. good luck!

Replace the fan motor and capacitor. If you want to go the cheaper route, change the capacitor first and try to run the unit. The cap. is what gets the fan motor running on start up. Another way to test it is to manually turn the fan bade and while it's still turning, make sure your hands are clear of the blades and turn the condensor on. If the fan runs normally, then it's your fan capacitor.

71122 ac model starts but the fan does not blow any air .shuts off within seconds.


which fan shuts down? Outside condensor fan? Or blower inside? If its the outside condensor fan motor you probably have a bad run capacitor or a bad condensor fan motor

How do I reverse the direction of the condenser fan motor?


If your condensor fan is running backwards you have a bad capacitor. Change capacitor and it will run the right direction. Russ

Condensor fan runs after compressor shuts off


If new motor is 4 wire verses 3 wire use seperate capacitor between brown wires and don't use terminal on 3 pole cap. If this motor has a white strip on one brown wire you can wire it the old way using only 1 brown wire and tape off the other. Can't remeber this morning which brow wire to use . I need to leave. Goole replacemotor with 2 brown wires for more info or call where you bought it. Sorry got to run.
