    Fan going backwards??

    My fan is going backwards so is sucking air down and out through the sides of the outside unit. The system cools ok(ish) but this is clearly wrong and needs to be corrected. I have a nordyne /fridgidaire with a dual capacitor.and a fan with 4 wires. Probably something really simple right??

    Welcome.

    It would be best for you to call a PRo. Save you time and $ in the long run.

    Why not take it up with the guy that replaced the fan motor? I kind of doubt the unit was shipped from the factory that way?
