sounds as if pump has stuck start winding switch , try giving Motor not the pump a sharp knock with a rubber mallet when you 1st turn on , this might jar it loose if not a new motor might be needed , if motor was larger then say 2hp then id say get it fixed at a motor repair shop due to cost saving but smaller sizes it's not worth it most times
From what you have described, it sounds like the fan motor may be seized. In which case, it should be replaced. Depending on the age of the unit, it may be better to replace it than repair it. As parts and labor to repair it, can be almost as much as purchasing a new unit. As the motor assembly alone, runs about $150.00 + Labor.
I hope this has helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.
I bought one of these units from a flea market for $5.00. It said the tray wouldn't open. I picked it up, and noticed the same thing you did. Humming motor, but the tray stayed put.
I opened it up to check things out, and all that was wrong was a (very) stretched out belt on the pulley that opened the tray. I replaced it with a rubber band and it has worked ever since. Once the rubber band wears out I'll replace it with a proper belt, but for now, it was a 2 minute fix that's lasted around 11 months so far. I really, really like this player, and plan to keep it working for a long time!
I would shut it off...most A/C's never need to defrost...but I'm not 100% sure about some of the newer models....In my 35 years experience.I have never seen a defrost on anything but a freezer/refrigerator....a humming noise indicates a motor is frozen up...usually a fan motor..in your case it will be the evaporator/condenser fan motor...(your type has a double shaft..that has a fan blade for the evaporator and then another shaft upon which the condenser fan blade is attached...if this goes out it will hum...and it will definitely ice over....and these window units are never supposed to ice over...except when air is not blowing over the evaporator ..or air is not blowing over the condenser. Yes it will continue especially if the fan motor is going bad...and yes keep power to it off..or the compressor can burn out and that IS THE AIR CONDITIONER...if you lose that you may as well buy a new one as the cost of repairs will be more than a new unit.....usually....If you are lucky you can take the cover off an spin the fan blade by hand and try to start it while the blade is spinning to see if it was just stuck...but it may not restart after it stops...if it doesn't you will need a new fan motor. Also next time include the Make and Model #. thanks and good luck...than you for rating my effort...the Fang.
How old is ur unit? Often the motor mount you need to check that rubber make sure its not broken (bushing)or the motor directly touch the rest of the panel below. Or else you need a new motor to eliminate that noise.
Hope this help!
