Yeah, lost a lot of brain cells over the years. Can't remember if right hand motor and left hand generator or vice versa. Was electrician a number of years and just can't recall ever seeing that before (except miswired 3 phase) But I have seen free wheeling! Like I noted, ya learn something every day.

Thanks for input, GBM. Are ya pretty sure you were a sparky at some point? lol On Yuri's recommendation, I took a couple photos of the offending unit. And, true to form, I'm perplexed by technology, and can't seem to post the damn things. I'll try 'er again here, and if successful y'all will be able to see that freewheeling is not really a viable consideration.
The crazy thing, the baffler is that the unit was running fine, just all-a-sudden postured the nonconformity. I'm gonna run with the "haunted" diagnosis. Lemme try this photo thing again. Thanks Y'all. mrskip

I've never seen anything like that, is one side for air and the other side is for heat?

Get rid of the ole beast and with the space you gain from the smaller footprint of a new one you can install your new hot tub. GOOD TIMES.

No, its just a medium sized condenser(bigger then 5 tons usually). See that mostly in commercial settings. That should be the model that energizes the RV for cooling instead of heat, like normal Ruud heat pumps.

Either the run cap is bad, or the fan motor's start winding is weak.

Guys,
Thanks to all, Yuri, Beenthere and GBM, for all the help. It's been very helpful to this ol' tilesetter. Wish I had a wheelbarrow full 'o cash for a new Trane or such. Til then, do y'all suppose it would help to pull the plug on that insolent fan motor? mrskip

Just replace the run cap first, and see if it doesn't run the right way then. Run caps don't cost much.
