Question about Weather King Heating & Cooling
Hi, if it just the fan and you know there is power there, more then likely the condenser fan motor has failed. You can kill power, remove the control cover to get to the run capacitor which is probably round, silver in color with several wires coming out the top. Look it over for any oil leaking out, the top of it swollen or deformed in any way. If you see this, this runs the motor and you will need to get one at a appliance parts house. Also, if it looks good, take something long and thin enough so you can reach in to see if you can spin the motor freely. Or, with the power off, remove the screws, 5/16" to get to the motor and if you have had it on for sometime, carefully grasp it to see if it is hot. If it is, power is getting to it from the run cap, and the motor has failed. These motors fail a lot because they work hard in the heat. You can call out a tech for around $150.00, which would probably be cheaper then what you could do it for. I am sure you have lost this motor.
