Yes dual feed capacitor in the condensor sounds bad. common to one side and outlet to compressor on the other and outlet to the fan on the third set of terminals. it should test bad but look carefully at it, it may be bloated up like a dead fish and easy to observe if you look at it closely. if bloated bad, worth a try anyway, cheap part ,usually under 40 bucks for most. label wires and reoplace wire for wire exactly with exact voltage and mf ratings. usually a motor shop has em. good luck.

04 goodman furnace model GMS8 ciculator blower wont stay on gas fires and runs but high limit trip because of no air from blower any ideas bad motor or control module


You need to check the motor amp draw against the spec tag on the motor. If the motor has power to the motor wires it's either the motor or the run capacitor.

I show voltage to the blower motor but it does not start when i press fan on the thermostat? Bad relays or bad blower motor?


Sounds like a bad motor. I don't know if your blower motor has an external starting capacitor and / or a running capacitor. If There is a starting capacitor and it's faulty , that would prevent the motor starting and turning.

I have an old Intertherm gas-fired furnace, Model MGH-055AB which ceased operating last night. It was quite warm when I arrived home, and when I set the heat up a little, began to hum, but the fan would...


Tom P's answer is generally correct: The motor start capacitor is usually not the problem. However, in some cases, particularly on older furnaces, where there were capacitors of certain make and production run will prematurely fail. This happened in March on a mobile home HVAC unit where both the blower fan and condenser fan motor capacitors failed open circuit. Both caps were of the same Mfg, and production lot.
Here is a suggestion (for you or an electrically inclined friend): Locate a substitute motor capacitor having similar Mfd (or MF) and Voltage ratings. Remove power from the unit. Reach into the blower squirrel cage and spin it to verify that the shaft is not frozen. Pull the wires from the existing capacitor noting color and location. Connect the wires to the substitute capacitor and secure it place. Apply power and turn on the blower. A no start? Motor replacement time.

High cool not working


Compressors on these units runs at only one speed. The change to high cool is only a change in blower speed moving air faster over the cooling coil. I would have the running capacitor for the fan motor checked. A bad capacitor can cause your type of problem. The other problem could be that the high speed winding in the fan motor is bad. Try it operation in the fan only position through the two speeds. If it works in the low and high speed for fan only your problem could be in the selector switch.
