I doubt the shaft is warped, however it is quite likely the fan blades are out of balance due to being bent.

Try taking the fan blade off, and see what it does. If you have no vibration then, replace the fan blade.

What could cause a grinding noise and white smoke when you turn the blower on?

Sounds like you either have a bad bearing in the blower motor or crap trapped in the squirrel cage...mice are bad about getting inside the duct work and building nests...either way it probably wiped out a bearing

The AC in my RV works and cools but rattles the whole camper and is extremly noisey. I think it is either one or both of the fans. Are they replaceable?

You have something in or on the fan blade. If you live where there are dirt dobbers, they will build their nest right on the outside blade. You will need to take the cover off to inspect. Also, as for the inside blower wheel, it could have something sucked up into it throwing off balance.

Fan works but does not blow hard. Used to blow great, now it seems there is an obstruction or internal vent not operating properly.

I know this may sound nuts but you should check these things first, pull fan motor and look in the squirrel cage, i have cleaned out several gm and dodge blowers full of nesting material like insulation and acorns.....yes acorns...rodents love to fill the fans up as nests...yes they can get in where you cannot tell. next look at the connectors at the blower motor and where the wiring connects to the resistor pack, usually located on the ac case under the hood or near the blower housing. check the connections to se if they are burnt or melted. the resistor pack could be bad also. hope this helps....

Fridge not cooling freezer works fine?

hi im andy from ac refrigeration in south africa ur fridge is short of gas

Hidden Ice build-up inside plastic bottom cover of freezer

Generally, icing is the result of too much water vapor inside the unit, blockage of the circulation channels and too much packing in of the box.  The water vapor is generally caused by: uncapped items in the fridge, opening the door too often, humid conditions, bad door seals.  There is of course, there is a possibility that the defrost cycle on the unit is not working.  About once a day, depending on the brand, you should notice that the fans and compressor don't run and you should hear a bit of creaking, sloshing or other strange noises as the ice melts.  If this is not happening, your defrost timer or the coil it heats could be bad.

2003 AC unit problems

there is a resistor block in the blower housing, it could have been damaged when the field mouse nested on the blower.

it is coils of wire ( nichrome wires) with 4 wires connected to a socket . this slows down the speed of the motor.
