    What would make my a/c blow out really cold air?
    For ten years it didn't do that.
    We put in a new motor and capacitor and it's changed to very cold air.

    Maybe it didn't work for ten years because the motor and capacitor were bad???

    OK Let me try a different question about the motor fan? Does one kind of fan for a particular A/C come in different speeds or power? Or is that the same?


    I know he supposedly put a motor in that fit the A/C and a capacitor to match, but I wanted to know more about the motor or fan.

    There are taps on the motor for different speeds. Maybe the right tap has finally been chosen.

    The fan speed for the AC is supposed to be faster than for heat.

    What exactly do the taps do to the motor? Do you know how many taps there are/speeds?

    In your opinion, would putting the tap on the highest speed cause bursts of really cold air?
