Your HVAC system works hard for you. All this work can cause excess heat and your AC and heater have ways to prevent damage as a result of that heat. The condenser fan motor keeps the condenser’s fan running so that the AC compressor does not overheat. It works to cool the heated refrigerant that goes through condenser coils in your outdoor AC unit. Your condenser fan motor must be maintained each year to preserve its life. It should be oiled and checked by an HVAC professional. Call the HVAC technicians at R & M Heating and Cooling for condenser fan motor replacement in Huntsville, AL. You can reach us at 256-763-7535.
Diagnosing Condenser Motor Problems
Without running condenser fans, you risk overheating. Start checking your system immediately, as well as contacting HVAC pros. If you check your condenser fan blades and they are not spinning with ease, then you may have a motor problem and need it replaced. If you still have trouble despite freely-spinning fan blades, touch the motor and see if it’s too hot. If so, you will probably need to have your capacitor checked. When you begin ruling out problems by performing easy checks, it’s time to call a professional to figure out what’s wrong.
Professional Condenser Fan Motor Replacement
You need a trained HVAC technician to diagnose your condenser fan problems. A professional should also install your new fan motor and test it to make sure everything works as it should. Instead of taking the time and risks associated with diagnosing, selecting, and replacing the motor alone, let a technician do it.

It is essential to get the right replacement for your condenser motor. On your own, not only do you risk purchasing the wrong type, but you risk paying too much. Your HVAC expert can make sure you get the right part for the right price.
