    You do not and can not replace motor bearings in a central residential unit. You replace the motor.

Yes. Any HVAC supply house has a replacement motor and capacitor.
If you get the original equipment motor it will be quite expensive.
Get a generic/universal replacement.
All you need is horsepower and rpm info.

Hello, I never had any issues with my central air unit before, but now all of sudden when I turn on my central air conditioner & heater, it causes my chandelier to shake violently. I feel as if it


If the air handler is above the chandelier you need to inspect the fan and motor. Could be a bad bearing or imbalance while spinning. There might be an oil port or two on the fan and motor. Try oiling the bearings.

Need to change a broken blower motor in RUUD central air unit. Old central air blower motor (GE electric) was connected with brown and orange wire to 15 MHD capacitor. Another orange wire from central air...


on the motor should be a diagram detailing the wires. brown white goes to either side of the capacitor and brown wire to other side of capacitor. hi speed goes to normally open contact on the indoor fan relay and the wire designated common on the motor goes to the other side of power from the relay contacts.

I have a 20yr old electrolux central vac that the motor just went bad. in wondering whether to replace motor or replace whole unit i have found an electrolux unit and a aerus unit. someone told me elect....


Motor to replace or rebuild:

Depending if your motor just started to get noisy, you can take it to a private vacuum repair shop and most rebuild for around $80 to $100.00. Usually they replace top/bottom bearing and the armature carbon brushes.

If it's loud and vibrating and probably sparking. Do not bother to rebuild, the armature is now probably damaged and not worth the new parts.

Replacing the motor is pretty basic and usually saves you about $150.00. They're pretty simple to release out of the unit and are pretty simple to remove and reinstall.

To find out your replacement motor number you will need to find the stamped model number on the motor itselt. It is a 6-8 digit number. That is the Ametek Motor Model number. Ametek is used in pretty well all central vacuum systems. Motors range from $99 to $239.00

I have a GE model No. BTN 748A100A1 (central air outside unit). Serial number 40564128. When was it made? What is its efficiency? It now handles #1950 sq. ft. Cab it handle 2950 sq ft when I remodel?


GE stopped making AC units probably 20 years ago. The same unit will not handle an additional 1000 sq. ft. I believe it is a four ton unit and about a 6 SEER rating which is way down on the efficency scale. You will need a 5 ton system to handle 2950 sq. ft. The average SEER rating now is 13.5.

I have a GE central air conditioner model


If you are talking about the indoor fan it is probably a bad capacitor. Replace the fan motor capacitor. And YES, if the fan motor needs replacing too, you can DO-IT-YOURSELF.

20 year old central a/c heater not working


Check your thermostat and mode selector setting, thermostat setting should be set at warmer and mode selector setting should be at low heat or hight this is applicable for manual unit.
If it is a remote control just set the remote to heat mode.
