SOURCE: Air handler squeals
Squealing sounds from a forced-air heat pump generally occur when the belt that connects the motor to the fan slips. If the blower is making a grinding noise, shut off the unit and call a heat pump repair technician --the motor's bearings are probably shot. In most cases, the belt is improperly aligned or worn and needs replacement. Follow the instructions in your owner?s manual (if you don?t have one, contact the manufacturer and ask for one). This job involves removing the access panel, loosening a couple of bolts that hold the blower motor at the proper tension, and realigning or adjusting the belt. In many cases, it?s a good idea to remove it and buy a replacement at the hardware store. When reinstalling the belt, be careful not to over-tighten it--this can wear out the motor bearings.

Hi, Could be a run capacitor on the fan motor. They usually swell up and or leak when they go bad. If not, the only real way to test them it with a specific capacitor tester. A new capacitor would be cheaper. Make sure that the outside unit is disconnected from power before opening it up, try to spin the fan blade by hand. If it doesn't spin freely it may need oiled if possible. See above solution. Your problem is the fan motor though so if this don't do it, It will have to be replaced. If this helps, Please rate my solution. Thanks, kstfas

If you have a heat pump do not put your blue wire on b. Put it on x or c. If you don't have an inline fuse you may have blown your transformer.

Look at your Thermostat wiring.
If there is a green wire going to the "G" terminal, disconnect it.
If it stops running, you have a bad T-stat.
If it keeps running, you either have a stuck fan relay or a low voltage control wiring malfunction.
Those are usually related to one of the safety switches having problems.
If green is not going to G, let me know, and we will determine which one is indeed the fan wire and go from there.
Remember, when you rate the solution, it closes further dialog, so only rate when you are satisfied with the discusion.
Thanks for visiting FIXYA!
