Carrier Synergy 2000 Condenser fan does not turn on

I have a Synergy2000 system, which had been off for a year. Turned it on, ran fine for a week, now the condenser fan won't turn on, The fan blade spins with virtually no resistance. Compressor kicks on, then off, after fuse is inserted. I presume it is the fan motor capacitor, or the motor itself. How can I determine which, and is there anyplace to get the capacitor model before I take it apart? The system was installed in 1995.

The mfd is stamped on the side of the capacitor.Be careful to kill the power and to NOT touch the terminals.The capacitor is capable of holding a charge even after power is disconnected.

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.

Hi!!

This means that the condenser fan motor (outside unit) failed, this caused to build hi pressure and either activated a safety valve to release the extra pressure or blew a line and R22 Refrigerant escaped from system.

The fix is to replace motor fan and capacitor find the leak and refill system with R22 Refrigerant Gas. It is safe to turn on the Fan Only mode on the Thermostat until a HVAC Tech arrives.
To perform this job parts and labor included will cost: about $300 -.$400. Look on the Yellow Pages for a Tech in your neighborhood.

Air con runs for 5 mins then stops, unit outside still going


ok depending on what part of the world your in and the season . Winter: most split systems are designed around a set given temperature of operation , if this is a heating problem the what you are experiencing is the system going into deforest . bare in mind that those carrier splits are manufactured in china and are designed for about 35 deg C in summer and +5 in winter , anything out of this temp range will cause this , especially if it is running on freon 22 , in-which case it sounds like its short of gas to me . if its a new R410 a system , then check your filters and if they are clean and its still doing the same then it too is short , in each case a refrigeration mechanic is required.

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.

Fan not running properly


Probably need a new fan motor, sounds like it is overheating. This can happen if the bearings are too tight. Not something you can fix just replace. Need an amp meter to check the amp draw on the motor
