Replace the Condenser Fan Motor

Replace the Condenser Fan Motor

Minor amperage problems may be the result of a motor having the wrong fan blade or a fan blade that is positioned too high or too low in relation to the condenser deck or fan shroud.  Restricted air flow due to a dirty condensers or bent condenser fins will also increase fan amperage.

Condenser fan motor bearings are often sensitive to shaft up, down, or horizontal positioning. Be sure to check when using any motor other than an OEM motor.  Many replacement motors will have moisture drainage ports that should be removed to prevent premature bearing failure.  When replacing a fan motor re-set the fan blade on the new motor in relation to the fan deck  or fan shroud, and not shaft position alone.
