Condensor fan position question?


When replacing a condenser fan motor how far should the fan blade extend into the schroud?

On the subject of condenser motors, if you have a 1/3hp motor @1075-1100rpm can you replace it with a 1/4 or 1/2 hp motor with the same specs other then HP ?

and it so would it be any benifit to using a stronger motor with the same RPM ?

Thanks,
Zog

Condensor fan position question?


Best to stay with the original horse power or you'll be replacing it sooner. Same answer with the position, keep it the same as the original.
