I got a replacement condenser fan motor, old one was a GE and was told
Gentec bought the GE motor division.
Anyone know who sells Gentec condenser fan motors
I searched the part # on the GE and Gentec motor and both are the
same. HC39GZ002A both also have this # skcp39kf Y140 S
In case it goes again would like to find a place that has them so I
could replace it next time, 2 in 14 months is getting expensive on the

I found it at a place in Indiana for $161.00, It cost me 1 1/2 hours
and $480.00 for the hvac guy to do. take away the motor cost and
$319.00 sounded like a lot of profit and taking an 1 1/2 hrs to
install it just seems a bit much and way too long. I did do
refrigeration work on vending food and ice machines and other small
units and 1 1/2 hours to replace a fan is way too long. They were here
3 times, once to see if it was the fan, i told them it was, then again
nut they had the wrong fan and then the 3rd time with the right fan. I
guess I paid for all the trips. Seems really hard to find someone that
really can get the job done right in 2 trips. This is my third hvac
guy so I think from here on out I'll do what I can, it sure dont seem
it will cost me any more. If i feel i cant or not sure i'll call
someone. Unit is just 6 years old and i have spent counting this
480.00 close to $1400.00 in the last 3 years and 2 of the years it was
still under warranty for parts only, so i have paid a lot of labor and
before long if it keeps up at this rate i could have bought a new unit
and now i see the new one's come with parts and labor warranty. I
know one think I sure won't buy a Tempstar, should not have to spind
that to keep it running. The hvac guy said he thought Lennox was the
best made. I do like the guy that came to fix it but i'm just tired of
putting money in a junk Tempstar heat pump.
Thanks everyone for your help on this, wish some of you lived around
me as most you seem to know your stuff. Thanks
Not "profit taking", but the cost of running a business. $480 for replacing
a fan motor is about right. 1 1/2 hours is a bit long for a resi condenser
fan motor replacement.
Unless it was a special application, the guy should have had a motor on the
truck. Some of us *DO* carry multi-speed, multi-HP, reversible motors on the
truck to keep from having to make multiple trips.
Check last Julys Consumer Reports...
