Question about Heating & Cooling
It sounds like you fan motor has went bad. Turn off the power to the unit. Then remove the apx 5 screws on the outside edge holding the fan shield on top of the unit. When you lift up on this the fan will come out with it. You will need to cut the wires to the fan motor within 3 inches of the motor. Make sure to trace these wires they will be color coded but they fade where they are exsposed to the sun. Now take the screws loose in the center of the fan shield these hold the fan in place or it will have a clamp that holds the motor with a single nut. Most of the time the hardest part is removing the fan blade. Soak the nut and shaft with PB blaster, WD 40 or some other good penitrating oil. Let the oil do its job and then try to unscrew the screws holding the fan to the fan shaft. These screws will either be allen wrench type or an exsposed square drive nut. If there is rust on the shaft sand it off before trying to remove the fan. Once the fan is off (make sure you lable the fan so you know how it goes back on you dont want to put it on upside down) you can take it to a local electric motor repair shop and they will match it up for you or order one on line ect... They can use the mdl numbers on the fan to replace it. Remember to unhook the electricity before starting and when you put the fan back in use electric wire **** connectors you can get a kit from any hardware store or use twist caps and always tape the wires where you put them back together. You will have extra wire you can trim it or just tape it or zip tie it so it doesn't get caught in the fan. Your new motor will have a wiring diagram on it. Write it down because once mounted you will not be able to see it. The only difference may be that your new motor may have two brown wires that go to your capacitor. On your old motor you may have had only one. If this is the case unplug the old wires from the capacitor and remove them one of them will go to your old motor and the other to power. On your new motor the power goes to the motor and it supplies power to the capacitor its self. I hope this helps

The compressor is either locked up or the start capacitor is bad...
The buzzing sound is probably the compressor trying to start and cannot get started...
