Original condenser fan motors normally live a long life, 6-8 years actually! however they should be replaced before failure. When it’s time to replace yours, make sure it’s not a generic replacement, generic parts function on average at 3-5 years.

Testing the amperage of fan motors can prevent higher energy use. A regular maintenance visit is more cost effective than waiting for failure.
Condensers that are not leveled are also a primary cause of premature fan failure.
Replacing fan motors is a common service than can usually be completed within 30-60 mins.
