Customer Question
purchased in December and when...
We own a Tempstar Heat pump. It came with the home we purchased in December and when it is running it the condenser fan motor makes a terrible noise that keeps us awake at night. We called a appliance repair company and they came out and looked at the unit and said that all it needed was a little oil because the bearings were dry. He proceeded to shoot in a couple of drops of oil. Afterwards there was no difference in the noise level and continues to make the terrible noise. I decided to take a look at it myself and discovered that the fan motor was replaced with a GE5KEP39FGN599 motor. On this data plate on the side of the motor they call out either a run or start capacitor (does not say which) I suspect a run capacitor as the symptoms I am seeing match what an open or missing run capacitor is. Whomever put this motor in shorted the capacitor wiring together to make this work. Can you help?
