condenser motor problems

I have an older lennox unit model # CB5185139. the fan motor is going bad and I need to replace it. The # on the motor is K55HXJRH 3601. I am having a very difficult time finding the proper replacement motor. the spec are: 208-230 volt amp1.1, 1/6 HP, 825 RPM, 1/2" shaft dia., 5" long shaft, clk wise rotation face up, closed face (no ventilation slots), approx 5 1/2" motor diameter to fit in mount. Any help on how to find a match ASAP would be great.

Lennox cooling fan stops working after normal start

I have replaced the fan motor, start cap, and control board on the outside unit. The systems starts, then after 1.5 minutes the cooling fan turns off.

Any thoughts?

Welcome to the forums.
This actually needs to be its own thread.

Is your Lennox a heat pump system ? It may be going into defrost mode which turns the fan off.

A model number of the unit would be helpful.
