Condenser fan running backwards,towards coils?


Just noticed today that the fan on condenser unit outside is running backwards(blowing into coils) What could be the problem? Not really a major problem I just live in Columbia,SC! Never gets very hot here LOL

You can select clockwise or counterclockwise by connecting and disconnecting to small wires.
