So AC has a problem with fan motor. Capacitor was replaced. The fan won't re-engage after it runs and stops, etc.
If you flip the breaker, and turn the thermostat down, the AC runs and fan runs fine, initially.
Is that a definite, the fan motor replacement is needed? That's a general consensus among people my mother has talked to, but it seems if the motor was bad, it wouldn't kick on in there first place.
Thanks ahead of time.
who replaced the capacitor? If the problem is still happening call them back.
Give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish, he will eat for a lifetime.
Give a man a capacitor, doesn't know what to do. Teach a man to install it, now he knows everything.
It was done by a family member. He wasn't paid anything, just replaced the capacitor.
Fan motor is for a 5 ton unit, if that matters.
I'm just thinking, if fan runs from a "cold start," i.e., resetting everything and flipping the breaker, then would the fan motor still be the issue, if the fan doesn't restart during a normal "cycle"?
