Question about 1992 Honda Accord
I have a 1992 Honda Accord LX. The AC blower fan is running when turn on. I believe the fan dial switch is still working. The AC button light up when pressed. Any suggestion to check? thankyou
Hope you have both fixed your problem by now; my system has been down.
In most auto applications, the bearings of small fans and motors are made of sintered phosphor bronze with graphite or petroleum lubricant embedded in it.
Since there isn't much load on these, the bearings can outlast the rest of the car but they do have a tendency to get gummy and since the fan motor doesn't have much torque, it may have trouble overcoming the stickiness and start turning.
If it wasn't for the buried location of most blowers, it would be a simple job to flush out the bearings with a penetrating lubricant such as WD-40 that is mostly volatile and doesn't leave much residue behind to complicate (gum up) things again.
This problem is common to some computer cooling fans too although many of the small CPU cooling fans actually have PLASTIC bearings!
Including some that were clearly marked as 'ball bearings.'
