Job Checkin

Came out today for a Payne system not cooling properly. Model #pa14nc036-a, serial #1416x71213. Upon inspection I found that the system would call for ac and the indoor unit and the compressor would start but not the condenser fan motor. I noticed that the compressor was extremely hot so I shut the system down and cooled the compressor with running water from the garden hose. Once the system was cool. I connected my amp meter and started the system. The compressor amp draw is within normal range but the fan amp draw was 1.25. The system is rated for a max amp draw of 1.10. This tells me that the fan motor has burned out and is not cooling the refrigerant back down which in turn causes the compressor to over heat. The condenser fan motor will have to be replaced. The system is only 6 years old and may still be covered under warranty. Once the repair is made further diagnostics may be needed. I also recommend performing preventative maintenance for the system.
