Delay Indoor Blower


My heat pump manual can be found here (Goodman PHK060-1) :
http://www.dnmech.com/lit/QRP-08.pdf

Just recently there has been a delay between the fan outside and the indoor blower. It seems to vary from five or six minutes (when it hasn't run for a while) to virtually no delay if I manually change the thermostat to cut on shortly after the unit has stopped. It's blowing heat just fine.

This doesn't seem right to me, but we recently just switched over to heat. I replaced the thermostat this summer, and I didn't notice any such delay on AC.

Suggestions for the next step?

Thanks in advance for any and all assistance.

A BIG hammer.

Which one is delaying. The outdoor fan, or the indoor blower?

The indoor blower. The outside fan cuts on. The indoor blower can delay anywhere from less than a second to five minutes.

Do you think that's something a layman such as myself should attempt to replace? Consider me reasonably skilled and very cautious around electricity.

Thanks!

You have to know your own limitations. Some people can, some can't.

Here's a link to the parts for this model. I'm thinking this part is defective and should be replaced. I'd appreciate some advice as to whether this is the right decision or not.

Thanks!

The first time after I replaced it, it took about a minute. Since then it was going about 25 seconds or less. Today was warmer, so it didn't run all day. This evening, when it fired up for the first time, it took about 5 minutes.

Is there a capacitor that needs to charge up or something?

No, the capacitor for the motor wouldn't change the way the motor starts after changing the sequencer.

Check to make sure it is getting 24 volts, and not only 18 or 20 volts.

The 24 volt terminals of the sequencer. They are the ones at the base of teh sequencer, were teh sequencer mounts to the air handler housing.
