Condensor fan will not come on. Low humming noise coming from
condensing unit when system is running. I am assuming it's probably the
capacitor since the unit is only 4 years old.
So, other than looking at the capacitor, is there a way to know what
would be the correct voltage for a Lennox ACC series condensing unit
capacitor? 370 or 440 ?
I am not at home right now and I would like to find out where I can get
the correct one.
That noise you are hearing may be the compressor.
Your best bet is to call a Lennox dealer and have a service tech. come and
check your system. You may have lost the condensing fan motor. So just shut
down the A/C until the service tech arrives.
Do not attempt to work on it if you do not know what you are doing because
you can cause more problems.
It just galls me to have to pay someone a $79 "diagnostic fee" $20
labor and $98 for the part when they are working on it for a total of
Especially when, if it is just the capacitor, I could buy it for $40
and install it myself.

The diagnostic fee is for labor only in most cases. After they trouble shoot
the problem they will give you a quote for fixing it. The quote could be T&M
or a fixed price.
If you change out a part and your wrong you could do more damage in the long
Why don't you check into some type of insurance for your A/C?

I dont like paying $3.09 a gallon for gas either but guess what
junior? That's the way the world goes round.
If you dont like it, stick a gun in your mouth and do us all a favor.
OK. Think about what you just said....
How much would YOU charge ME to learn a trade, buy a truck,
shelving, corresponding tools, licensing fees, insurance,course upgrades,
manuals,etc..., then drive over to my house, figure out what's wrong with
my system, go get the part (even if I have one on the truck, I still had to
go get it sometime), install the part, then warrant it if it fails
How much would YOU charge ME? $10?? Maybe $20??
And how long do you think you'd stay in business?
I wonder if your boss is "galled" every time he hands you a paycheque.
