After turning the unit off, there is a hum for a few minutes, no fan noise, just a hum, and then it turns itself off eventually. The unit is about three years old and is otherwise cooling the room.

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.

Making a loud squeal or hum during

Sounds like a motor with bad bearings. In that unit it would be the water pump or condenser fan motor. If the sound is coming from inside the unit it is the water pump.

Turn AC on and only get a hum, no Fan. Repair

It does not make sense they overlooked it. It does make sense the fan motor is bad.
A fan motor must have a new capacitor. I would ask for a labor adjustment on the original repair.

A.C . makes a buzzing noise...

If you can make repairs yourself a motor is only about $40 and a capacitor about $10. Either could be the problem. If you have to pay someone to do it buy a new one.

Note: CDC-625 unit won't open, no discs inside

Wait, wait!

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!

Air conditioner is frozen on the inside

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 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.
