This roar sounds like the bearings going bad on the electric blower motor.. Does the unit cool just fine ? If so then the blower wheel that moves the air is rubbing against the cage and needs to be adjusted. Turn power off to the unit and remove the front cover where the motor is.. Spin the fan wheel by hand and see if it is hitting the sides.. If it is the cage with motor is being held in usually by one or two screws at the front on the top where the cage is suspending from. With theose removed the cage will slide out and usually wiring can stay connected. There will be a square head bolt that is keeping the blower wheel in place. Spray some penetrent on the threads and let sit for a few minutes. Then use a box end wrench or crescent wrench that is the correct size and loosen bolt by turning counter-clockwise.. WHen wheel will spin on shaft see if you can tap the blower wheel in the correct direction to loosen from hitting the cage. Connect everything back in the opposite manner of course.

I think i have a bad fan motor bearing. Unit is very loud and barely cooling.


Hi,
The bearing may be going bad, but that should not effect the cooling much if the fan is running...there must be other problems...

Here is a tip for other things you can check....

I have a loud roaring noise when I turn on my air conditioner. Could it be the blower?


Does the noise also appear when you use the heater?If so then your blower motor is the culprit.If the noise only happens with the a/c, then it is probably your a/c compressor.

A/c won't blow any air


check the status of the blower, if it is not working than try to open the front panel of the ac and check the wiring of the fan......or else contact the service authority. i'm sure that there will be any lose connection or the wire is disconnected/cut..............have a nice day :-)

OK I will be looking over the manual. Now that squeal sounds like the squirrel cage fan scraping the housing around it. Those units are so tight fit they can be twisted one way or tightened a little to much they scrape. I love them for there silence win they work right but hate them because my hand are too big to move things around inside them. Stay in touch I will be looking around while
multi-tasking today- I'll be here!

Try replacing the front end wheel baring(s) If it is a roar that you can hear resonating from the windows, this is most likely it.
