okay - Let me formally thank everyone who tried to help. It is my fault to have posted here. When I read the 'Ask a professional', I understood that to be basic homeowners who wanted information...

Blitz - THANK YOU! I will suggest my HVAC guy replace the motor with an identical one BUT also replace the run capacitor as well. It is my understanding that the motor, (Motor, PSC, 1/3 HP, 825,...

NO, you're right. But the simple truth is, nothing does. Anyone can file, about anything. All anyone can do is protect themselves from liability but that doesnt eliminate the cost of defending it. ...

For someone new like me, this turned out to be really confusing. I made a post which was a DIY post because the "ask our pro's' infers that the individual asking doesnt know and is looking for...

is there a sub-forum where it is ok to ask:
Can a unit which initially called for a motor with these specs:
1/4 HP, 200-230/60/1, 825 RPM, CCW, 48 FRAME, FLA 1.9, LRA 3.65, TYPE PSC,

Thanks guys - I really appreciate the help. Too bad there's always one who blemishes such a high caliber group.

Sorry for obviously ticking off at least one of you. Certainly wasnt my intent. Since I am brand new here and out of work for almost 2 years, I was merely looking for some assistance. Thanks to those...

Given that all ran fine for 2 years, do you think I'd be good if I replaced the generic motor with the same identical one BUT now replaced the run capacitor with the correct one made for this generic...

yes but that was for the 2 capacitors. Given his cost, I could easily do it myself. Just need to identify the correct parts...

Thanks. I will post no pricing. The aim is really just to find out some information (i.e. can I use the above listed generic motor with its associated capacitor and be good to go...)

All of this came to light since he was here. He gave me a report calling for new capacitors with the specifics but they were several hundred bucks. I dont know but I dont think he realized the motor...

Maybe they are close enough such that the same capacitor will work fine for both but I'm guessing not... hence the problems I have now...

Heres the original Trane motor specs:
MOT08914; MOTOR, 1/4 HP, 200-230/60/1, 825 RPM, CCW, 48 FRAME, FLA 1.9, LRA 3.65, TYPE PSC,
Heres the specs for what I have now:
AO Smith, Fan Motor, PSC,...

Thats actually what I'm hoping to find here... The ideal scenario is for a knowledgeable person to come on here and give me a resource which I put in my model and get generic alternatives (with...

I did as you suggested. he said the fan capacitor and the start capacitor were both leaking. I went online to track those down and when I pulled up the same (existing) motor I have now, the generic...

I have a 9 year old Trane XE-1000. About 2 years ago, a tech came out to the house because the fan motor was shot. He replaced it with a generic brand (AO Smith) which was fine until recently. Now it...
