It could be a bad:
CAP CAPACITOR (DUAL RUN) 


80 MFD + 5 MFD at 370 volts

HC93CA081

If you have a single CAP at either rating, you could try it in the repespective circuit.

Sorry but I have no caps of that type. However I have not attempted repair of my A/C unit ever where is this cap located is it in the outside compressor or is it in the inside unit?  How would I be able to check the cap with an voltmeter/ohmmeter.

I'd still try a Cap if you can find someone that has one .....

OR try taking the CAP to another HVAC store for testing ..

If anyone is keeping prices to himself, find another technician.

How did this technician decide the unit is on it's last legs.

Did he "Meg-Ohm" the compressor ? Use any type of test equipment ?

Too many "Salesmechanics" lately. JMHO

It was not the tech keeping the prices to himself.  He used a tester to check  the unit and he used an ohm meter with an amp clamp on it to check the fan. Check out any AC replacement site they do not list the prices of their systems they only list how much you can save and how much rebates are. The tech was quoting me 3k to 4k depending on the system, I like to comparsion shop.

Looks like a FASCO D917 may work for you also.

Check this one out: http://www.famousparts.com/dfatoencofan.html

I've used FamousParts and have had good service from them.

Attached is the Fasco Motor catalog page that has D917 specs.

I carry two low cost "universal" condenser fan motors on my truck . They are called RESCUE by Emerson. Wholesale supply house cost is about $65 .
http://www.johnstonesupply.com/corp/OnlineCatalog/ProductDetails/tabid/1780/Default.aspx?Product_Code=S81-133

The rescue motors are good for any HP between 1/3 hp and 1/6 hp. One motor is 825 RPM(part #5464) and the other is 1075 RPM(part#5462)

These motors are great because they can be used for most condensers. They have all the mounting holes and studs and you ever will need. They work with RHeem/rhudd side tap mount , Trane and carrier stud bottom mount, top stud mount, belly band mount , and probably a few other mounting
possiblities I havent found yet.

The downfall is they are a standard 48y frame, so if your OEM motor is shorter than a standard 48y frame , It may not fit in the space available.

COOL!!! Like your fan. :thumbsup:

Now, how long do a/c's last????????? Anywhere from 10 years to 40 years. How is that for not answering the question?

Really, If you have a (WOW!!) First generation scroll compressor that is still running, you are doing very well.

You are really on borrowed time at this point. The compressor could fail at any time , or it may last another 15 years. You never know when a compressor will go. Most of the time there is no indication of a problem until the compressor dies.

Don't worry about the rust in the evaporator until a refrigerant leak develops. And it will leak someday. Carrier(and many others) has a real problem with leaks where the rusted steel comes in contact with the copper u-bends.
