Condenser Fan Motor cross reference number


Hello,
Searching on the internet for a part number brought me here. I have an Amana RCC42A2E Prestige HVAC unit that needs the condenser fan motor replace. I can not seem to find the motor searching on google. I am guessing that the motor P/N is exclusive for Amana even though it is a GE part.

The motor I'm looking for is a GE 5KCP39JFS301AS. Is there a way to cross reference this part to another number or maybe find out if it has been superceded.

I'm also going to replace the capacitor and the contactor.

Pictures attached.
Thanks in advance.

Most likely the p/n on the motor is specific to the manufacturer.

You need a standard 240v 1/6 hp 825 RPM motor that draws 1.0 amps. It will NOT be an exact replacement (i.e. wire color for wire color) so be sure to take careful notes of how the old one is wired in now. Most of the new generic motors will be 4 wire, and yours is a 3 wire.

I have found a replacement unit at Grainger but the shaft is 6.6" and I need 2.5". Also the ambient temp. rating is 40C and here in Texas is 40C everyday in the summer. I would think that that would shorten the life of the motor.

Shaft size is not really important as long as it doesn't impact anything (like the top of the compressor, for example) you're okay. Most generic replacement motors have longer shafts so they'll fit a wider variety of applications. If needed, you can always cut the shaft down with a hacksaw (do this AFTER installing the blade).

Here's a motor that seems to fit your specs with a 60c ambient rating, whic puts it just over 140f. I think there are 70 and 80c motors, but I didn't check further.

Thanks Scott for the link. I have now various options. Did not know that you could cut the shaft to make it fit.

How about this one. It has a load of .9 amps. Would that work? Or maybe this one.

Your link points to a "session expired" page on the Grainger site.

The amp draw is high-ish on your motor - 1.3 @230v. You should try to install a motor where the amp draw is the same +/- 10% (i.e. between .9 and 1.1 amps). Note the one I linked to has slightly high amp draw as well, so you might continue looking around.

That's the Insulation Class of the motor. Your current is a B, which (according to the link below) is the most common class for 60 cycle motors in the US.

check here for motors http://bestbuyheatingandairconditioning.com/ definitly Grainger will match one slight HP change won't hurt low on those RPMs will make it a search though this is close with 1/4HP but that rotation keep that in mind when getting on...if it doesn't say cw-ccw on the new motor it isn't changeable! 10ths of amps won't hurt that contactor either being 1/4HP.the motors are general to all units like car parts are with different ratings and sizes and notlabels on the motor for Amana GE sells to all brands acording to there condenser specs with air moving and amp draws.

you can also check out www.zorotools.com. They seem to have the best prices on Dayton products around.... even better than Grainger (http://zorotools.com/g/00032608/k-G1653434/)! And looks like they have a free shipping special going on right now, any size order. Getting my list together as we speak!

Well, I ended up calling an HVAC technician. He replaced the motor with 1/8-1/3 HP motor and a matching capacitor. It is all working great.

Thank all for the help.

Shaft length and specific direction is typically all that makes a motor ' OEM' these days
