My A/C unit quit working on the hottest day of the year! I had this A/C unit for 13 years and I just knew I'd never find a fan blade for the same make and model, so I tried to go purchase a new one but couldn't find one big enough since it was so late in the season.

After receiving the fan blade, I popped off the old one and put on the new one! The A/C unit worked like new once again!! It even blew colder air than before! The hardest part about the entire process was getting the13 year old fan blade off! I'd recommend your website to anyone looking for a part!
Thank you for all your help!!

2001 Window AC/Heat Unit.
I ran across your web site and ordered the fan $70.00, telling myself that if we could fix it we saved $650.00. A new - window air conditioner is over $700.00 for heat and air.
Believe it or not the two of us oldies put it up on the desk on CARDBOARD so we wouldn't scratch the desk (my husband wouldn't have thought of that - that's why God made man -a woman). I vacuumed everything I could see to clean which made it more bearable to breathe. Then we had to decide how to get the old fan off and the new one on. They don't make these things to repair. We actually took out more screws than we needed to but that's ok. There are 3 legs in there that needed to be unscrewed so we could pull out the heating coils enough to replace the fan. One of the 3 legs was difficult to maneuver because of the tight space so my husband and his brawn decided to cut a hole in the medal on the right side. He did it a little unconventionally but it still solved the problem of the 3rd screw without affecting anything else. We both had to pull on the heating coil to slip it up out of the bottom pan without breaking anything else but we managed. We got the old fan blade off and the new one on. Two heads are always better than one. We did it and it works with a savings of $650.00.
Your website saved us a heap of money. We have already started telling others about it.
