Caring For Your HVAC Condenser Fan Motor

Caring For Your HVAC Condenser Fan Motor

An air conditioner condenser is the outdoor unit of a home’s split HVAC system. The outdoor unit of a home’s HVAC system houses some of its most important components. Specifically, the outdoor unit contains the condenser fan motor, compressor coil, and condenser coil of an HVAC system. A condenser’s motor turns the fans that blow air over the condenser coil, which is crucial to the cooling process. By blowing air across the condenser coil, refrigerants are cooled, transforming them from a gas to a liquid. In the event the motor itself overheats, it will stop working, and the HVAC system will have no way to cool itself, potentially causing the system to fail. Below, the HVAC technicians with our AC repair company share everything you need to know about caring for your HVAC condenser fan motor.

Typical Causes Of An Overheating HVAC Condenser Fan Motor

There are a number of reasons an HVAC condenser fan motor may overheat. The following are a few of the most common causes.

Signs Of Overheating

Condenser fan motors can operate reliably up to a maximum temperature of 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Upon exceeding this maximum temperature, the motor will begin to overheat and stop running, halting the HVAC system. An overheating motor can also damage other components throughout the system. The following are a few signs your condenser fan motor may be overheating.
