Question about Ruud UAKA037 Air Conditioner
I just replaced fan mortor and capacitor. Fan first came on strong, then slowed down. I told my wife maybe the newer motors work like this. Well the compressor wouldn't come on. Now compressor comes on, and fan doesnt' . This is a brand new fan? Is there something else I need to look at? I've checked connections as best I can, all breakers, and disconnect, and all seem to be right.
Not all new fan motors are good, hows your luck been running?dose it turn freely? i would take it back for replacment dan

Tips for a great answer:
I just had the same problem. I replaced the motor with no luck. It turned out to be a bad capacitor. If it is a dual capacitor, three prongs on top, it also starts the compressor. It is recommended to replace the capacitor anytime you replace a motor. I would try replacing the capacitor first. It is a lot cheaper that a new motor. If that does not fix the problem then you can get a motor. No harm, no foul. The slow start of the motor is a common symptom of a bad capacitor. The motor is not getting enough voltage. The capacitor increases the voltage like a transformer. It will boost it to almost 400 volts, depending on your unit.
