We would need a meter to troubleshoot. If you have a meter let me know .If not you can get an inexpensive one at Walmart for about 15 bucks if you would like to troubleshoot and I would be happy to guide you.
THat is fine,Just come back t site when ready
No problem.Talk tomorrow
Just got in.Are you available now?
I should be around.I operate a local hvac company so never know when I will get called out but hopefully will be here.
I am back at office
If blower ran for 6 minutes, it sounds like blower overheated.
You may have a bad motor but I would start by replacing the capacitor and see if that solves problem first.
If your meter reads uF (microfarads), Turn power off to unit remove wires from capacitor and see if it reads lower than rating marked on it.
Capacitor is only like 10 bucks
Capacitor is more likely to be the cause but I have seen a bad cap cause the motor windings to go bad.I would run down to an appliance parts store and get a new cap before spending the money on the motor.Just make sure to get same uF rating as old one.
JUst let me know.
If you have further questions, please let me know.

Sounds good.Talk to you then
The blower should have a single cap for blower,probably 7.5 uF,
Condensor fan should be on a dual for compressor and fan
Sounds like going to be the motor.It was worth a try.Is that something you want to do yourself?
On call for heat when fan should start or on cool or fan on check power to motor.I am pretty sure you have power since it comes on at first.I will try to get you a diagram to show you where to check.
My manual says "SEE wiring diagram on unit control box cover.
Can you attach a pic for me?
About to have to leave for a funeral. Can you get a pic showing me where the fan wires hookup?
Or a plicture of the wiring diagram on the unit
TRy to upload a pic of that wiring diagram and if possible the fan wires connecting to board or relay .I will check in as soon as I get back to office
You will want to check between black and purple for 240vac when fan should be on.
Thee error is a limit because if fan not coming on.
Yes I suspected you would .Replace fan.
