Aircondition wont turn fan

Make sure the set screw holding the blower wheel to the motor shaft is tight.
Try replacing the run capacitor for the fan motor if that does not do it. (If the motor shaft turns and the wheel turns, but squeels real loud, then replace the wheel if the set screw is tight.)

My Goodman model#A36-15 just started squeaking constantly. What would cause this to happen? It only occurs when the fan turns on.

Fan motor going bad
Blower housing is loose
Blower wheel out of balance, causing a vibration in the unit.

Open the unit and visually inspect the blower, blower housing, and listen for squeak. Be sure to shut off power until you get panels removed. Hope this helps!

My heater/ac fan sometimes won't work. What do I check first?

$24the AC light does not light until you turn the fan on, that is ok, the issue with your fan only working sometimes is more than likely a faulty blower motor, in some cases it is the switch, when the motor does not turn on try tapping it and see if that makes it work, if it does then it is the motor.
the switch at autozone is part number SW295 and is $16
the motor at autozone with the blower wheel is part number PM136
cost is $24

I have a Goodman GMPN furnace and the motor that runs the twin blowers has quit. How do I take it out and replace it?

If you mean the blower wheel, I wonder how you diagnosed this problem so you were 100% sure the motor is bad. I recommend to make sure of the diagnosis before spending to buy parts.

The blower wheel is shaped like a twin blade. But it's only one wheel.

However, to answer the question; Step one is turn the power off.
Then; Find the blower housing in the lower compartment on an upflow configuration.
  • Remove 2 screws on the blower housing, on the upper inside of the blower compartment to slide the blower housing out.
  • Disconnect blower motor wiring at the harness and at the control board if connected. You can cut them if you have exact replacement motor and wire nuts.
  • Slide the housing out, turning it on the side that exposes the motor.
  • Remove the 3 mounting screws holding the motor to the housing.
  • Loosen the lock nut holding the fan blade (wheel) to motor shaft.
  • Slide motor and shaft out and away from the fan blade, as they are connected together and cannot be separated. Use penetrating oil SPARINGLY.
Installation is the reverse of the removal instructions.

IMPORTANT. Make sure to leave equal space between both sides of fan blade and housing when re-installing the wheel.

Luck to you. Let me know how that turns out.

How do i take the fan off

Good day,
You need a good wrench that will fit on the nylon shaft of the blower. A second wrench is needed to fit on the flat of the pulley on the front of the motor.
It's best, if the motor is still mounted in place.
The threads on the blower wheel are LEFT HANDED, which means you turn the wrench on the front of the motor clockwise to loosen it.
Once again, the wrench used on the blower wheel must be a good fit. It is best to just let it rotate, until it rests on the bearing support shaft. Apply pressure (usually a lot). If it breaks loose, continue to turn it until it falls back into the rear cavity.

If it rounds off, don't feel bad. About half will come off, the rest will not. You'll need a long screw driver or chisel, to break it off.

Thank you for using FixYa

New motor runs but doesn't blow air through the registers

Is the blower wheel turning? Did you by chance have to remove the motor from the blower wheel to work on it? If you did, did you put the blower wheel back on in the correct direction of air flow? Also, did you put the correct capacitor back on the unit so it can get up to the required rpm's? These are things that you will need to check for. If the motor is running and the blower wheel isn't and the wheel is tight on the shaft, then you will have to replace the motor. The brushes may be bad on the unit and it's not turning the shaft. Hope these ideas help.
