Blower Wheel

If your air conditioner is making an unusual noise, the problem could be with the blower wheel, or its fans. The motorized fan in an air conditioner pulls air through the filter and over the cold evaporator coils and then re-circulates the cooled air back into the room. There is also a second fan on the motor shaft that cools the condenser coils at the back. An unusual noise is usually due to the fans striking the inside of the air conditioner. Check your blower wheel, and the fan blades for physical damage, dust, and signs that they have been hitting something during the cooling process. If the wheel is damaged and the unit is not working properly because of it, replace the part right away. Remember, the power should be disconnected from the air conditioner before you perform this repair.

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!! read more

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.
