A/C condenser fan issues

Postby Hotinohio » Tue Jun 14, 2016 11:41 pm

I have been beating my head against a rock trying to figure this out. When I turn on the A/C, the fan kicks on as it should. After several minutes, the fan slowly comes to a stop. The condenser is still working, but the fan won't run. If the system is turned off for a while, then restarted, the same thing happens. I have changed the capacitor, and tried another (used) fan motor. Same result.

Please help! Getting hot out here!

- A/C condenser fan issues

Your fan issue, I will assume, is with the indoor air handler fan. Try setting the thermostat to Fan-ON, not Fan-Auto. Does the fan still die after several minutes?
