Question about Goodman CKL36AR36 Air Conditioner
The problem could be the capacitor for the fan motor or the fan motor itself. Turn off the power and use a long screwdriver to see if the fan will turn freely. If it doesn't it needs to be replaced. If it spins freely then check the capacitor. You can do that with a multimeter with the capacitor check function or take it to a heating and air supply and they can check it for you. If the capacitor looks swollen then it is bad. Some units use a three terminal capacitor that is connected to the fan and compressor. Make sure you check the fan side but it wouldn't hurt to check both while you're at it. If the capacitor is good then use an ohmmeter to make sure the fan motor windings a not open or shorted. The increasing noise probably comes from the head pressure building on the compressor because the fan isn't running.
