You guys will not believe this. Weds I put the unit on after being away for a while, and this dog don't hunt -no cooling. Go out to unit and compressor is doing nothing. Check breakers and it has...

It is two blades just like the original.
The guy came about an hour ago, I told him the motor and that the blade was the same. He was the same guy that was here yesterday. He said before he does...

Thanks Mr. Bill, that sure makes it sound like the problem is the fan size, as we are pulling 1.35 amps.

I'll get all that detail when he gets here, don't want to be found with the unit open when the guy gets here. It looks identical to the current motor. They are both 825 RPM, but I never saw what...

Door bell just rang, and a PSEG guy dropped off a new blade and motor. I asked if someone is coming today to install, he had no clue. Called them up and they said yup, someone will be here between...

Shophound, you are right. I don't really want to open up the unit at this point to get all the info as they should be here with the right parts tomorrow. When they have it open I will write down...

Just got a call from the gas company this morning and they tell me that they heard they need to order the OEM blade for my unit. I said yes, but what about the motor. They tell me the tech told...

Gary, perhaps I will open it up and look for the data if I have time tomorrow, but I am hoping they actually have the right parts by Friday.
Dan, thanks for the offer, too bad you are not close...

They replaced the blade with one with the same pitch and diameter, but the with of the blade is about 1" wider on each blade than the original. They could not use the original one as it was all...

Well number five came out to install the new motor. I told him I would like him to check the amps and he said OK. First he checked the capacitor that they installed with the first new motor and it...

I don't know how the gas company makes any money. They game me a noon to four window today, so I was excited 10 minutes ago when the van pulls up and the guy walks to my door with the new motor in...

Well yesterday around 6pm I called my "friends" at the gas company and wanted to know that status of the part. They told me the procedure is when the part comes in they call to make an appointment...

No there is no deductible and the contract is fairly cheap - yea I know you pay for what you get. But the reason I have it is I had problems with this Rheem system from when it first went in. Every...

They have a big appliance repair business and work on just about anything: HVAC, Ranges, Washers / dryers, Refrigerators, Hot water heaters; not to mention gas piping and meters.

Don't know what license you are talking about but they all wear their union logo shirts :)

Well reducing the losses and the heat load has made a big difference. It is still difficult to get all three levels to be equal, well actually impossible, but it is much much better. We installed a...

I was a chemical engineer, not a mechanical or electrical engineer. Three techs cause I have a service contract with PSE&G "the gas company" They just send whoever fits the schedule. Yea I have a...
Understanding Engineers #1
Two engineering students were biking across a university
campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?" The second
engineer replied, "Well, I was...

One more time, I am not the tech. I was a plant engineer many decades ago, but I certainly am not the tech.
When they installed the new motor I saw a pair of wires hanging outside the unit and...

I don't recall the RPM on the original motor, but the one they installed I believe is 11xx RPM (maybe 1125?). They went to some database with the unit name and model number and whatever info the...

Yes, I am the one that diagnosed the issue. I saw that it was tripping after 15 - 20 minutes, usually at 18 minutes. I sat out there and watched it happen, first the fan stopped and then shortly...

Well its been three separate guys that have been out here. You are correct that nobody checked the amps on the motor. You are also correct that the new motor is longer and hangs lower down. ...

I hear you about the one hose. I agree it is lazy IF he was really trying to check things. I think he was doing it to placate me since I was the one that asked him to check the levels. I'm sure he...

How does a motor dissipate heat without venting? The only motor I know of that does that is a TEFC motor, and this is not one of those.
