My name is Billy.
This generally caused by 2 different options.
Motor gets 120v but does not run = bad motor
Motor does NOT get 120v = bad circuit board
Do you have a way of checking?
Thank you...while it hums...try spinning by hand...tell me if it
tries to start
spins and stops
feels very stiff to turn
the main blower that pushes air through duct is what we need access to.
Do you know where this is?
will you be able to accesss?
can you post a picture of the unit? Or a model number and I can direct
this is the one unit I really do not like working on....they hid the blower behind the front assembly.
I actually had one where we had to remove the unit. I am not one to steer away a do it yourself project, but this one may be best for a tech...
all I can say on this unit....is patience goes a long way...
I wish you the best.
yes very possible....If the motor starts up while energized with a hand spin...it is capacitor.
you are correct..if tight when energized it is a bad motor.
