Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Hi hello i dont know if my air is gone out but the fix out is the motor outside we think its gone or is going out


Answers :

Hi,\015\012 Sounds like the condenser fan motor is the problem to me. Could be an insect in the contactor outside. I think you should contact a licensed air-conditioning technician to check it out. Find the REPAIR SERVICE tab on here and find one in your area or check the YELLOW PAGES in your phone book under HEATING AND AIR-CONDITIONING. You might want to talk with a neighbor to find a good air-conditioning technician

I have an A.O. Smith f48l47a50 blower motor, and I need help with wiring. First it's a 460v,1phase,1/2hp,975rpm,3spd motor. My question with the wiring is do I need to supply a wire for line power? I know the brown and purple go to the capacitor. The green is ground. I guessing the blue and orange are to designate low/med speed, but that's all the wires that are attatched. I think I need to supply a wire from the blower motor relay to the motor's hi spd terminal. Could you confirm this?


Are you SURE its 460volt single phase??? that voltage is normally a 3phase motor voltage,and color of wires is right for 480/277, but that would be 3 phase.....not saying your wrong,just make sure ... Air Conditioners

I Have a outside A/C unit I have replaced the fan and I need to know which Capacitor leads go to the Fan, the compressor and the contactor. the capacitor is a 35/5 with one lead with 4 male blade connectors-one with two and one with only one lead. There are also two brown(one with a stripe)wires from the new motor instead of the one on the original motor.


The 2 brown wires go to the capacitor, the solid on the positive or colored dot side, the striped one goes on the other side. ... Dayton Air Conditioners

I have a rheem furnace. A week or so ago, we had a burning smell, and the furnace shut down while I was gone. When I came back, it did start again, but the smell was still there. I called a guy who came over, found some melted wires (dont know if they were in his pocket or not before he came), and the unit worked for about four hours after he left...then there was a new sound..a chirping sound, and then the heater died a couple of days ago...I took the squirel cage apart, took the motor down, an


Your control board may have a problem. When the burner fires up, after a time delay of about 45 seconds, you need to use a voltmeter and see if the terminal marked H for heat has 120 volts coming off it. This voltage will be the power to spin the blo ... Air Conditioners

Air conditioning yes my ac is not cooling off my apartment, i have had the maintenance guy in here about 3 times already and he said it isn't going to get much cooler than 20 degrees less than the temp outside. i know he is not a certified HVAC mechanic and he just keeps giving me the same anwsers every time i talk to him. He said the ac unit is old and i am in the up stairs apartment so all the heat from the downstairs is coming into my apartment, but i think it is a bunch of bull that he is t

The outside condenser unit will run for about 8-10 minutes then the fan will stop spinning but you can hear and feel the motor wanting to run,but also i found the other day that the drain tube for the condensation was not draing because the plastic pipe was sagging in the middle dont know if that could have caused anything


Most likely they are not related. Most likely the condenser fan is shot. You should be able to replace it for less than 100.00 If it isn't starting, it could be a capacitor, but since it starts, it's probably overheating, or bearings seizing after it ... Goodman Air Conditioners

My motor for my Goodman CK36-1B condenser unit is beginning to overheat and stop in its tracks. I know I need to replace it, but the a/c place is charging 350 dollars for the part alone...that and labor is way beyond my means. I can get a "universal motor" and capacitor for it for $130, and think I might be able to install it myself, as I'm very handy with those kinds of things. However, I've never done it before...is there anything I need to know before attempting to do this on my own?


Yes....shut the power off.Just kidding.The old capacitor can hold a charge even after the power is off.be careful.make sure the motors are same hp and rpm.the universal may also have a rain plug that needs moved to the back face.besides that,pretty s ... Goodman Air Conditioners

I bought a used furnace and when i hooked it all up the green light that says working is flashing instead of staying on constantly. dont know if that is good or bad. but the automatic pilot will not light and i am not getting the fan to turn on or anything. the draft induce motor is warm to the touch after a few minutes so i know that it is trying to work. not sure if that is the correct name of the motor exactly.


Something is not right here. Turn it off and check the power connections to the unit.. something is hooked up incorrectly. If you can send me a photo of the schematic I can tell you how it should be connected. ... Air Conditioners

Hi, I have an air handler motor made by GE Commercial motors. I think the motor number is N656 S. It's a 1/2 HP, 1075 rpm motor to replace my existing air handler motor. I want to install it in my air handler, but it's wiring appears to be different than on the system I currently have. The current system has a purple wire hooked up, and I don't know what it's for. There is also a red and black wire which correspond to the yellow and black wires on this motor, but nothing to compare to the purple


See where the purple wire is hooked up in the existing motor diagram (it could be the capacitor or a lower speed for the heater) and compared with the new one , and put it in the same place .But the easiest way to do it ,is to get the original replac ... GE Air Conditioners

Have a Payne pg8uaa furnace. Furnace only works when I run a jumper between R and W. Replace wiring to furnace. I suspect that the outside blower motor is the problem. When furnace is running the blower motor has a humming sound but does not blow air. At this point, I would like to know how you would diagnose a Tjernlund HSUL-J blower motor. Should the motor itself be replaced or should the fan prover be replaced?


You would have to test the motor as well as the capacitor on the motor capacitor goes for alot less then the motor though.here is the pdf manual on your blower h ... Air Conditioners

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.

If this is a 220 volt unit I would suggest taking a look at the breakers, often times one will trip leaving the other in service. Also, you'll want to check the positioning of the shunt bar(located in the service cutout) and make sure it is in the r ... Ruud Air Conditioners
