Ok guys. a real do it yourself mistake. My 8 year old condenser fan motor stopped working. might have been just the capacitor but decided since the motor was old AND had an AC repairman tell me (5 years ago) that the motor was failing I just decided to put in a new motor and capacitor. No problem, fired right up only problem was I had the fan blades on upside down. realized this right away and turned the blades around. BUT! Apparently I did not tighten down the set screw on the shaft! The blade reversed threaded itself up the shaft till the blades hit motor housing and stopped turning. Did I burn the motor out? Maybe fried the capacitor? More serious damage? Help me out guys. Thanks Bratton.
