Do to ice storm and generator that was putting out to much and voltage inverter board was blown. replaced inverter and compressor would not start did the voltage tests on wires going to inverter board dc voltage was low at 3 volts and on same wires ac was at 14 volts the blue and white conn. was good at 120 volts.

Replaced the Motherboard the compressor will now start but condenser fan will not come on. which wire the blue or red is the hot on the condenser fan? for testing purposes. Also does the motherboard send the 120 volts to the fan or does it get its power else where. any help would be appreciated

Red wire to the condenser fan motor is HOT.

If your not getting 120 volts to the condenser fan motor while the compressor is running, then your motherboard is the problem.

Here's the main control board(motherboard) for your model:
5304478375 Board-Switch


Here's the condenser fan motor for your model:
297279500 Condenser Fan Motor

You must of got a bad motherboard, or you have a loose or broken wire between the motherboard and the condenser fan motor, that's all it can be.

J2-1 and J1-4 on the motherboard powers the condenser fan motor.

I'm attaching the wiring diagram below for your model.
