Okay. Just wanted to confirm that it can happen.  The ADC board was what I first replaced.  It had two burned out areas on it.  I am ordering both fan motors today, and hoping that does the trick.

the Condenser Fan gets it's power from the same Controller pin as the Compressor does.

Did you check for 120v there ?

I checked and got the 120v reading at the Controller pin.  I have the new starter installed, and the compressor comes on!!!  However, nether the condenser or evaporator fans come on.  Has anyone EVER heard of the Condenser fan, evaporator fan, and compressor starter all going at the same time?  It was an electrical spike that we had in our area that caused all this.

 

Thanks agian,

I have the starter coming by Saturday.  My condenser has a metal fan on it.  Does that make a difference?

 

Also, according to the schematic you sent me, it looks like the condenser motor is linked to the starter.  Does that make sense?

I just became an apprentice so I could download the wiring diagram.  Thanks, RegUS_PatOff.

 

Do the fan motors have breakers or fuses for them?  On RepairClinic.com I can only find the Evaporator Motor.  Any idea where to get the condenser motor?

Okay...So I just pulled the starter and capacitor.  Checked the ohms on the cap and it checks out.  BUT, there was a rattle in the starter.  Popped it open and found a scorch mark inside.  Safe to say it is bad!  Thanks Magenta#90

 

Now, I need to know if the fan motor to the right of the compressor (I think that is the Evaporator Fan, it has metal blades) works in conjunction with this starter?  What I am trying to ask is: If the starter is bad, can that stop that fan???

 

THanks again! Trying to order parts all at once and with as little OVER ordering as possible.
