I have a Goodman Package unit Model # PGJ 03075-1. The blower motor only rocks back and forth while the compressor and fan run and begin to form frost on the pipes. I replaced the large capacitor, main control board, fan control board, thermostat, and removed the control module off the back of the ECM motor to look for burned areas. There are no visible burned areas. Any ideas on what to check next? Rick


The blower motor only rocks back and forth ? That means it is getting power. Most of these have their own smaller capacitor did you check it?\015\012Any sloppy vertical movement means the motor bearings are shot, the motor is what we ca ... Goodman CPLE24-1 Air Conditioner

Weather king model 13pja36a01 Heat pump The outside fan runs slowly, compressor starts then immediately stops. I replaced the run capacitor, I believe this might be the fan motor going bad but I can't tell. Could I test the resistance of the fan and what values should I get? Where can I find a replacement fan? Thanks Tom


If you have replaced the run capacitor and the fan still is running slow you definitley need to replace the motor no doubt. you can go online to Grainger.com or find one by your house. Your compressor is going off immediately because high pressure th ... Weather King 10AJA3601AH Air Conditioner

Hi, just replaced the capacitor thinking that would solve the problem but it appears it did not. The motor outside would kick on the unit inside would kick on but the blower motor inside works sometimes and wont other times. Basically, the unit will work just fine all day then we notice the house is getting warm, check the inside unit and everything is running fine but the blower motor is not circulating the air. I have a goodman a30-10 unit. I read where some people said the relay could be bad


Turn off the power to the air handler(indoor unit). Remove the access panel. From the motor,trace the wires back to the fan relay. One wire will probably trace back to the incoming power terminal. The other is the fan relay. It could be intermittent ... Air Conditioners

I have a goodman 2,5 ton outside unit, i cant get the compressor to start even with replacing the start capacitor and using a super start on the compressor side of the capacitor? normally i wouldnt have a problem with this kind of repair but im getting power feed back through the cooling fan motor even with it unhooked from the start/run capacitor enough to start the fan slowly. i havent seen this before


Check to make sure you have 220 on both sides of contactors, double check wiring at capacitor. you can also check continuity between all three post at compressor , make sure power is off and wires are disconected, if you do not get continuity between ... Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner

I have a 561c central air unit. I just replaced the fan motor and capacitor 6 days ago. The unit ran great for just that long now the fan won't come on and the outside unit is hot to the touch, I can assist the fan and it starts and runs great until it reaches the thermostat temp. When it turns off it won't come back on. Is it the start relay switch?


Sounds like you need another capacitor since it will run if you turn it by hand to get it started. If you have a clamp on ammeter check the current draw on the fan motor. ... Air Conditioners

Recently moved into my mothers home (deceased0. Her Carries central air unit is 2-3 years old. worked 2 weeks prior to moving in, but has not worked since. The unit would buzz a th the fan motor, but would not spin. The capacitor was swollen, so I replaced it. The fan now works, but is not cooling. Could the refrigerant be the problem, even though the fan turns on. Thank you!

Outside fan not running, inside unit running fine. Compressor was running this morning, but no longer. Replaced fan motor, turned power back on, now fan or compressor not running. What else can be checked?

Central Air unit fan inconsistent operation. Will run fine for hours or days then not kick on when called for resulting in icing of cold air exchange. Capacitor was replaced last summer, and flipping breaker off for ten seconds then back on again causes the fan to start again.


Those symptoms sound like a contactor - ralay not closing properly or the capacitor. In most situations, I would recommend they both be replaced, since it seems they fail close to each other. ... Air Conditioners

Have an intertherm split system. Outside condenser compressor is starting, can hear freon flowing, but fan motor will not kick in. Gets hot then kicks breaker. Have replaced capacitor with factory part.


If that system is gas heat then you have 2 fan speeds Lo speed for heat and when ac is called for the motor speed shifts to hi with the use of a fan relay.Some various fan relays in use today. ... Air Conditioners

I have a Duo Therm 57915.531, turned it on last night and the compressor ran for a minute then kicked off. The fan blows fine, the heat works but the compressor will not kick on and cool? Could my compressor be out or is there something else I can check before completely replacing the unit?

Sometimes the thermostat can have a burnt place in the fan contacts. This stops the interior fan motor because the compressor wiring is not interconnected to the interior fan. The compressor command is the yellow wire. The interior fan command arr ... Amana Air Conditioners

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. After I replaced it, it still did not kick back on when I turned on the A/C unit from inside. There is an override switch on the compressor that turns the compressor on manually but does not stay on.

Replaced condenser fan motor with OEM and I replaced the dual run capacitor with exact same rating and the condenser fan motor still will not run, I wired the way it came off (3wires brown to f on capacitor, black to contact, and purple to df1 on the defrost timer board). The contactor appears good it plunges when I give it power and the compressor comes on. Wondering if the defrost timer board is bad.


One way to test the motor and the board is to bypass the board. You need to direct wire the motor and test to see if it comes on. Then you know the motor is good and the board is bad. Not sure exactly what board your talking about though. Condens ... Air Conditioners

I have a Goodman Co. air handler model #AWb24-OBC REV E. I had to replace the fan motor and want to make sure it is wired correctly. There are five wires one red, one black, one purple and two brown. I know the two brown go to the capacitor and the purple to the 30 amp breaker. Does the red or the black go to the BTDR?

Replaced fan motor and runs backwards has a dual capacitor on unit could i have plugged in to wrong term on cap.


Sounds like you have the run wire connected to the capacitor instead of the start wire. I expect you have 3 wires; Common-black, Run-probably orange, and Start-brown. You should have either L1 or L2 from the contactor connected to the Com terminal of ... Goodman CLQ36AR49 Air Conditioner
