    Fan not spinning on Trane condenser

    I have a Trane Condenser and when the system calls for AC I hear a loud humming noise from the condenser, but the fan won't spin. If I give the fan blade a push, it will start spinning. But then it stops after a few minutes.

    Any thoughts?

    It's toast.

    You need to call your favorite HVAC service company.
    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.

    Place the call tonight yet. Even if you don't want them out till tomorrow. They may be busy, and calls are done in the oeder they call in, as much as possible.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    thats a new one. Yes its toast. Time for a new motor. Call your reliable HVAC service contractor. Get the unit serviced.

    If you don't know, then don't do. If you don't know and still do, then be prepared to pay someone else a lot to undo what you did and then do it right.

    If you do know, then do. But do it right. Otherwise, you may not be doing it long.

    What exactly is toast. The fan itself, the whole unit?

    Thanks

    more than likely the fan.....

    get your tech out to look at it ASAP.

    In the mean time, shut off the breaker for the outdoor unit. You can do a lot of damage with it running with no fan.

    It was the capacitor. I noticed it was leaking and all rusty. Got a new one. It's back up and running.
