condensing unit shuts after 5 mins

trane xe 1000 -
1/4 fan motor went bad - I replaced it with a used 1/3 from another trane unit - it had same wiring harness etc
everything starts, runs, cools -cold air - but only for about 5 minutes...then condensing unit shuts off - inside blower keeps running though... I'm thinkin

condensing unit shuts after 5 mins

I'm thinking it would work better if it had the right motor.

Might be that that motor spins the opposite direction. Or. Your seeing a problem now, that caused the other motor to go bad.
