It sounds like your fan motor is burnt up. If the noise you are hearing is coming from the motor itself, then it's going to have to be replaced. One way to check this also is to turn the unit off and try to turn the fan blades by hand, if you cant get to it, then use something skinny and long enough to drop through the opening on top. If there is any resistance, than its difinitly a bad motor. If the noise you are hearing is coming from the compressor, then your fan motor still might have a chance and only needs a capacitor which is a round or oval part inside the units electrical compartment. Depending on how mechanically inclined you are, it is possible to fix these yourself. Just a warning though, if your fan hasn't been running and the compressor has, it can or could burn up the compressor also. This is another reason why it can be hot inside the cage. Your compressor will go into internal lockout if it gets to hot and will not come back on until it cools, but it can only handle so much. Hope this points you in the right direction and good luck!

Not unless its a belt driven wheel. If not no grease will help just make a big mess. Take the fan assembly out, take motor off the wheel, take wheel out of the assembly wash wheel with hose, dry reassemble. Or just go buy a new wheel but check your shaft on the motor if loose get a new motor also.

Hi, the tech should have been able to figure the stat out with out a manual to see why the condenser is shutting off at 1:00 P.M. This is unusual for this to happen, unless it was winter and this is a heat-pump going into defrost, but just the fan would shut down. Does this unit have a box on it that was installed by your electric company that shuts the unit off during high peak conditions in the summer? This would cause it to shut down at the same time everyday. If not, it would have to be something in the thermostat that is set for it to shut off at that time. It still does not make since, as it would shut both the indoor and outdoor unit off, not just the condenser. Are you saying that just the condenser fan motor is shutting off, but the compressor continues to run until it shuts off on high head pressure when the fan stops, or does the complete outdoor unit shut down fan, compressor and all at that time??. It sounds to me like this outdoor unit has a time delay relay that has a fault in it may be shutting it off at this time daily? Please let me know if its just the condenser fan motor that shuts off, or if the complete unit is shutting off all together, this will help .
Sincerely,

Condencing fan is not spinning and very hot to the touch, the compressor is making a buzzing noise.


Check the capacitor. You can use a multimeter to do that. Also if it looks swollen then it probably needs to be replaced. Some units have just 1 that controls the fan and compressor and just 1 side can go bad.

Carrier Air V unit with loud noise


If it sounds like a scraping noise it could be the motor bracket ah broken and the squirrel cage (fan assembly) is hitting the fan housing, if it is more of a squeal than it very well could be a bearing. Very hard to guess without seeing or hearing it.
