Answers :

\015\012Before you buy a new condensor fan motor check the contacts to the motor are not worn or pitted.
\015\012Hold or push the contactor in by using an insulated screwdriver and see if the fan motor turns.
\015\012Also the start cap you bought? was it the correct one meaning mfd micrfarad?
\015\012If all the above checks out ok then you need a fan motor,you can wire the motor direct to check it also.
\015\012From what you describe it sounds like the fan motor is burnt up and worn out,not uncommon.

Hi, I have an 8,000 BTU unit. The unit is about 5 years old. It was running fine, no problems at all. Then whan I went to turn it back on after a few days-nothing. No noise, no air, nothing. It just did not turn back on. Before this happeend it cooled, it reponded to degree changes all was fine. The green light button on the test and retest comes on, but there is not a sound from the unit itself. Its like you would hit a power button that was not plugged in (but it is). This problem occur

I have an Amana a/c unit and the compressor outside keeps stopping however the fan goes on. The a/c service guys have been to my house 3 times and the wires each time were burnt. The last time they change the capacitor and and new heavier guage wires and it lasted for about a month. When trying to turn iton now I am back to the same situation. Do you think I should I go for a compressor or change the unit ? It is a 4 ton model BBC60a2A and the outside unit model number is RCE42A2A . Thanks

AMCOR 24,000 BTU split system. Worked fine two years, then today it had no power. Checked circuit breaker, it had popped. Reset CB and went to inside unit - would not turn on or off with remote or hard button. Checked wiring with an electrical tester, and wires to outside unit hot, as well as inside unit. No flashing codes, nothing. Unit won't turn on,even with power. Is there a fuse somewhere in the inner unit or outer unit?

I had this same problem. I disconnected the thermostat wire out side at the condenser and reconnected it and it started working. A couple days later it blew the breaker again this time I found the bus where the L1, L2. GR wire connect at the condense ... AmcorAire UCHW-H24AF2 Split System Air Conditioner

My unit is 4 years old. I always turn it off when I leave for work in the am and turn it back on when I get home in the pm. Last night I turned it on at 7:30pm. When I went to the front of the house about 45 minutes later, I noticed the unit outside was trying to turn on but would immediately turn off. I checked the breakers in the garage, turned them off and back on but still had the same problem. The fan inside the house is running but unit outside will not kick on. I looked for a magic

One of my AC units froze up. I cut the unit off. after it defrosted I turned it back on soon after we smelled wires burning. I turned the unit off.

I have a Frigidaire cooling and heating unit. Last night we had freezing rain and ice. I heard a weird noise coming from the unit then smelled a burning smell. I turned the unit off. The top vent outside was covered in ice blocking air flow. I cleaned off the ice and turned the unit back on and it just makes a humming noise. No air is blowing and I looked inside and the fan is not turning.

I have a ruud model no. ubhc-17j11nfd and i am having a problem with my heat. when the heat does come on, the thermostat says it is on auxilary heat. the blower in the inside unit does not run. i changed the capacitor and now i get a really loud humming noise. the motor still does not spin. but when i spin the motor by hand then it seems to work fine.(the humming goes away) this happens every time when the heat goes off then back on. the only way to solve this is to keep the fan on constantly.

RV ac fan runs backwards (blows out air on top of RV.) Runs correctly sometimes but after it satisfies and clicks off when it kicks back on, it runs backwards. The only thing that will turn it back around is to turn off unit and wait for around 30 minutes and turn back on.

I changed the fan motor because it had burnt. The capacitor was also changed.

I have an Amana Prestige A/C compressor that is not turning on when my fan turns on to cool the house. I replaced the capacitor because my old one was bubbled up at the top.

I have an XB10 Trane AC unit that was installed when my house was built in 2003. After running it for a while, the compressor either seems to shut down and I notice no cold air as though its just the fan. Sometimes when I start it back up my thermostat says ''wait''. Or it just blows the fan, even though its set for cold. I've had the capacitor replaced, a start up capacitor bridged to it. I've changed the filter and had the coils cleaned with a brush and garden house from the inside. I'v
