Customer Question
Having an a/c issue. System...
Having an a/c issue. System has outdoor condenser unit and uses a rheem rgdj-05eauer furnace blower for air handling. Technician came out and told me that the control board failed due to blower overheating. I purchased a new board and installed. Now the blower starts up and shuts back down after a few seconds, like a system check is failing. Do I need to purchase another blower motor or is there a component not on the board that has failed or what else do you think the issue might be?

Is there 120 volts to the blower motor when it shuts down?

Unsure how to confirm. If you are asking me to use multimeter to test voltage on the blower leads I need to know where on the board this is located. All I did was rewire the new board exactly as the old one was and am unfamiliar with the layout.

HVAC Technician: Tim H., HVAC Professional replied 3 years ago
If you have a voltmeter, set to "volts AC", and go down to the board. Push in the blower door switch. Check from the COOL terminal to any one of the white neutrals and we are looking for a continuous 120 volts while cooling is called for.
