replacing fan motor
when i noticed today my ac was not blowing cold i saw that the fan was not turning. the top of the motor was quite warm though leading me to believe there was power going to it. i tried to spin it with a stick and it would move ok but never started up. i would assume it's pretty simple to replace the fan but do i need to replace the capicators too?
thanks in advance for any help.
don't be misled too easily, it could be that your not getting power to the fan motor, you'll have to check the wires for power with a voltmeter to see if this actually the case.
not all motors sieze up when they go bad so check for a no power condition first.
to answer you question, the process is pretty straightforward and a capicitor should be changed with the new motor, in case the new motor requires a different rated cap.
also, a new capacitor is included with the new motor for the reasons I stated.
good luck, post back if you need further assitance.
