Question about Heating & Cooling
GE fan motor burnt; I replaced it; also replaced a capacitor; it contains 3 capaitors; fan motor still runs a short time and stops while the compressor continues to run. What is the problem? I have cleaned the condenser coil, and replaced the blower motor air filter.
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.
