Trane XE 1000 - Fan does not turn on


Hello,

I have read most of old threads, but I could not find a thread contains exact same problem as mine.
My A/C unit is Trane XE 1000. The outdoor unit make a noise like the compressor is running, but the fan does not turn on.
So, I gave the fan blades a push by a stick and the fan moves freely by pushing, but not by the unit. I decided to check the capacitor first, so I took the capacitor(7.5uf, 45uf, 440VAC) off and measured by the multimeter. It says 7.52uf and 45.72uf. Also, the capacitor has no bulging. Do I still need to try changing the capacitor, or need to check the motor? or something else?? I am not a good tech, but I want to try to fix it by myself first. Please help. Thanks.

Try:

Also, make sure no electricity is going to the system (pull fuses/turn off all involved circuit breakers) or you could get hurt. If unsure, get a pro!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for the reply. Right, I need a new motor.
I have called several local stores, they don't sell to the public.
Please let me know where can I buy a new motor?

I'm going to change the motor only. But, just to make sure, do I need to change the capacitor together when I change the motor?
Thanks.

Hi JJboy,
I did not get the motor yet. My motor is 7.50/370. Emerson 1860 is 5.0/370.
Is it ok to get it?

My current dual capacitor is 7.5uf/45uf and it is good condition. Do you mean I get a Emerson 1860 and order a new capacitor with 5.0uf/45uf? If I order a motor with 7.5, can I use my current capacitor?
Thanks.

You can isolate 7.5 and install 5 or buy dual 45/5
