Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?
My Sanyo ks2432a unit's motor makes a gear winding type noise. Sort of like a classic hot rod car that has a gear drive
installed instead of a timing chain.
When the motor ramps up to the next speed the pitch gets higher.
Question is there a bearing that I could change? or would I have to replace the fan motor assembly?
Thanks in advance!

I have a wall mounted Kenmore 21,000 BTU/hr air conditioner model 106.8752192. The compressor and cooling portion of the air conditoner works fine. However, the blower motor bearing appears to be going bad. The noise at ''LO'' speed with the compressor off is gradually getting worse. Is it repairable? What is the estimated repair cost?
Sure it is repairable, in fact it's a relatively simple process if you are familiar with electronic devices and handy with tools.\015\012\015\012You will need to simply replace the blower motor and capacitor.\015\012\015\012Mo ... Air Conditioners
Bonaire Integra VSL75 only runs at full speed after a motor replacement. I replaced the motor with the exact same model after the old motor seized and sheared a bearing. No other fault was evident. Now the motor only runs at full speed. I have double checked fan connections and tried reprograming the touch pad fan speed settings with no luck. Can the controllers be faulty after a motor seized and tripped the power box switch? I figured it would just be the motor. Any ideas? Thanks

TRANE XR13 - Don't Want to Get Ripped on maintenance! Maintenance guy says that the gasket is leaking on the fan motor. There was very little oil that i could see. He also says the bearings are getting worn because the fan blade has about 1/4 up/down movement when pulled away from the motor. Are they trying to hose me?

Dometic duo-therm rooftop ac unit motor wont spin unless i jiggle the wires that go into the motor then it works! Trailer sat in a monsooon storm last night. next morning compressor kicks on just fine and motor hums but fan wont spin unless i jiggle the wires? did somethning just get wet and needs to dry out or did it short out my run capicitor? Help?
If you have to jiggle the wires going into the compressor motor to get it going, I would submit that you may very well have a broken wire or otherwise loose connection that is making contact when you jiggle the wires. If all appropriate connections w ... Dometic Rooftop RV Air Conditioner

I have a sunbeam 12000 btu window unit air conditioner. I can't seem to change the fan speed when it is in cool mode. When I put it on fan only it blows extremely cold air and i can change the fan speed. When i press the power button it stops blowing but it sounds like the motor is still running and I must unplug it to get it to stop.
Sounds like the switch is wired wrong.\015\012When you put the switch on fan only the compressor should not run at all, therefore their shouldn't be any cold air.\015\012Check the switch to see if it's wired right. ... GE Profile ASM10AA Air Conditioner

Blower motor on home a/c struggles to get up to speed then shuts off. then does the same thing over and over. never stays on. also makes a lot of noise.
One of two things first you may have a motor capacitor going out. This capacitor is what gets the fan up to speed and keeps it there. If this capacitor is out the fan starts slowly and may never reach operating speed. However, you state the motor ma ... Air Conditioners
Take a long time for blower motor to get up to speed
The first thing I would do is to clean motor and squirrel cage. It would be best if you would remove it and take it somewhere that you had a air compressor to blow out motor ports and fins on squirrel cage. Most of the time you can remove by disconn ... Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner
Our fujitsu inverter heat pump makes a terrible high pitched squealing noise when ever we use it. It may get a tiny bit quieter when we lower the speed, but it is an incessant sound and makes it hard to stay in the room or have people over. The heating and cooling are working...it's just the noise that is driving us crazy. What can we do?

I have a 1991 dodge colt 200gt. My problem is that the fans have stopped running. The only air I get is from me driving and it passing into the car. If I put it onto econo it draws the 100 rpm from the engine and on a/c it draws 1000-1500rpm and drops into the dead zone. If I hit speed bumps really fast or go over a particularily bumpy road then they start up again. I don't want to kill my suspension and I suspect it might need a new motor. Any suggestions?
Hitting speed bumps could be jarring the shaft and bearing just enough to allow the motor to take off; however, it is possible that the motor is taking off due to a loose/dirty connection or ground. Prior to replacing the motor, check all of your wir ... Air Conditioners

I'd like to see if I can get a replacement blower motor for my central air unit that runs at a slower speed.
The central air units are designed to run at a specific speed (100%) if its older unit. The problem with putting in a slower speed motor(2speed) is the unit will still run at max speed. (nothing to regulate the speed). If you contact your local HVA ... Air Conditioners
