    GE 5KSP39FGW452S Condenser Fan Motor

    Hello.

    My GE 5KSP39FGW452S condenser fan motor has vents on each end, but, is a 230 volts AC, shaded-pole model. Will it be ok if rain blows on it?

    I was wondering since it doesn't appear to have any uninsulated electrical parts which could be damaged by water.

    how is the motor mounted? shaft up? shaft down? shaft horizontal?
    It's tube brushing season...93% done (39.35 miles of tubing)...only 1,242 tubes to go!

    If it IS a "condenser fan motor," then it should be RATED for outdoor conditions.

    I suspect you have a BLOWER motor.

    The GE site should have your answer.
