The bearings are sealed and if you can spray WD 40 on them and get them to stop making noise the bearings re bad, you could use a needle gun to put synthetic grease into the bearings but the best bet is just replace the bearings. You can get bearings at King Bearings for about $20.00 for a set and are not hard to change. otherwise you will have to replace the motor and it runs about $195.00 dollars.If you need help on replacing the bearings just ask and I can tell you how to remove them.

Tempstar indoor outdoor central air unit is so noisy you can't hold a conversation. any lubricant's i could use and where.

I'm assuming you have an air handler that is inside. Turn the power off and make sure there is nothing that the fan is hitting. If not the bearings are probably bad. These motors are sealed and cannot be lubricated. You will need to replace the fan motor.

Have you lubricated the the running deck? The lack of lubrication can increase friction thus causing the current over load circuit to activate thus shutting down the unit to prevent further damage, Go to your local hard ware store and purchase silicone spray. Apply Lubricant by lift one side of the running belt spray contents length wise starting at motor shroud to the back end repeat this process on the other side. If this unit shut down again then you will have replace the running belt and possibly the deck.

Air handler running but nothing coming out of

Shut unit off, remove door that would have the blower
located in it. Make sure that the blower motor has not seized up. Try to spin it with your hand.

If the unit starts up ,fires up and shuts down all the time, more than likely the blower motor is the problem

Central Heat and Air noises.

Hi, It sounds to me that this split system you have is a heat-pump and not a gas fire air handler. The noise that you are hearing must be the freon in the copper lines equalizing in the system upon shut down of the compressor. All systems must and will go through this sequence. It shouldn't be that loud though. The copper lines should have armor flex on at least the larger suction line for insulation and to keep it from condensating everywhere in the summer in the cooling mode.If you find it is bare with nothing on it, you can buy this insulated tubing at Home Depot or O.S.Hardware. Its black in color and is split down the entire 10' section with glue covered seams on it. This should cut down the noise. Depending on the unit size Tonnage wise, the suction line may be 3/4" or 5/8" in diameter.Just ask for there water line insulation and like I said it comes in 10' sections and is very cheap, 20cents a foot or so. Please keep me posted if this does not take care of the problem. It may be coming from the lines where they enter the air handler. I will wait for you're reply.
