Question about Haier Mechanical Air Conditioner HWF05XC7
Facing the unit, on the left air outlet hose, there is a big white fan easily visible. That fan has come apart (on the right side of the fan). There is still a good 75% of that fan left. In fan mode is the only way I can run it as it doesn't use this fan. I've had the unit for about a year and a half. Do you think I could damage the unit if I clean out the broken fan parts and run as usual.
Hello. after reading you're situation on this unit, I am not sure what this fan you are talking of, what role it plays in the system. Maybe a secondary fan for extra air flow if needed. You say it has come apart? What I picture is the fan blade not the motor is plastic and pieces have broken off. With many years with experience working on motors of all sizes, voltage, from 300 H.P. to 1/16 a/c motors and more, I would say you will be fine if you remove the broken parts of the prop/blade and run as usual. You say you don't run the fan but if you do run it and you say you have 75% of the prop left on it, as long as it isn't out of balance and the prop/blade is plastic, no damage will will take place at all. If you loose any more of this fan blade, I wouldn't use this fan until you can find another to replace it, but I strongly believe that you will be fine if you clean the parts out and run a you always would with not causing any damage at all to this unit. So, the answer to you're question is no, you will not cause any damage to this unit, and go right ahead and do what you wanted to do, it will be fine!!

PS, If this were a condenser fan motor, blower, heater inducer, you would need to replace the blade as the unit would not run anyway as it would shut down on high head pressure or you would have a frozen evaporator coil if this were to happen. I am talking on central a/c and Heating units only...
