Air handler b6bm-x60k-c with fixed speed blower motor

Customer Question

air handler b6bm-x60k-c with fixed speed blower motor running slow what to check

Hello,

you have 2 choices....the motor is going bad or the capacitor. Since capacitors are only $25 or less usually it is changed out first. If that fails to fix then it is a motor with bad windings or bearing drag

no, this one does not have a capacitor is a fixed speed high eficiency blower motor
Expert:  BillyHvac replied 11 months ago.

maybe we have a terminology gap here..

you say fixed speed...which means a standard motor and capacitor. Do you mean it is a x13 motor or ecm motor?

Hello

I need to see what you have exactly.

Please attach a well focused, close up photo of the wiring diagram glued inside the service panel, the picture needs to be taken from straight on, in very good light.

You can use the paper clip- icon at the right end of the tool bar at the top of this dialog box to attach it here.

If you have an error code showing, tell me what the code read out is on the wiring diagram or a sticker next to the diagram please.

If there is no paper clip-icon, look for the '+attach files' link at left of your send button.

I can mark it up with trouble shooting instructions.

We can go from there.
