Question about Heating & Cooling
The motor gets hot from over amping for various reasons. Nine times out of ten the fan motor needs to be replaced. This really isn;t something that most people can do without proper training. The way it's done on the outside chance that you have the mechanical expertise is, you shut the electric off to the A\C, with a 5/16s driver unscrew the sheetmetal screws at the top of the unit and gently lift the lid and unbolt the four bolts holding the motor turn over lid, pull the electric leads of, making notation where each goes, back the retainer screw off fan blade and remove blade. Unscrew belly band pull out motor. Take this motor to the parts supplier to match exactly the right motor. (All of this is probably academic because almost all supply houses do not sell to the public, it's too dangerous) If you get the motor just reverse everything you did to take the other one out. The best route is to spend a couple hundred dollars and pay a Tech to do it right, It's more involved than an electric or plumbing fix. One other thing to get you by. Get a square box fan and fix it to the top, expelling the air upwards, turn on high and turn on unit, This usually works til a Tech arrives. It may not be as good as normal but it will cool to some degree. Good Luck
