Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Fan making loud noise like it needs oiled

\015 Last night the a/c started making a loud noise. Sounds like when a fan needs cleaned and/or oiled. Filter has been cleaned and everything else works fine. We turned it off until we know what the problem is and how to fix it but the temp outside today is 102. HELP!\015

Answers :

Most of the fan motors can be oiled. You will have the slide the ac forward and remove it from the case to access it. You will find yellow pull pins on each end of the motor, a lite drop or two is all that is needed.

We have a 2000 Winnebago Adventurer with basement air, "true air". Yesterday our AC unit started making a loud buzzing noise about every 90 seconds. Like maybe the second compressor was trying to start up and couldn't. We turned the AC off for awhile, and when we started it up again the noise started immediately. It buzzes for maybe 10 seconds. What can we try ? Should we leave it turned off ? It is over 100 degrees here in Texas and we need help fast!!! Thank you. Pam
