If you are mechanically abled you could remove this motor and go match it to a new one at a local electrical supply house that carries motors. Let me know if you go that route and I can get more detailed for the process.

thank you

When turn on blows cold air but makes loud whining noise like rubbing on something. almost a whine sound

sounds like your bearings are out on your fan motor. Some of the older fan motors have places where you can oil the bearings but most newer ones do not. Unless you have a place to oil the bearings and they are not already too far gone you best bet will be to replace the motor. Once the bearings start howling in the way you described it is time to start looking for a replacement. It is also possible (although unlikely) that the noise you hear is (a) the fan blade hitting part of the frame. (b) the bearings in the compressor.

Fan stopped working

The bearings may have gone out in the fan. Try to find an old fridge and swap out the fans.

My ceiling fan has seized up it jerks when i flip the switch in forward and reverse lights still work

Sounds like the Rotor bearings are shot. If your up to it, you can remove the motor from the housing and attempt to re-lube the bearing, given you have access to the bearings. but that might not be worth the hassle. It might make more sense to go out and either buy a new fan or find the serial number on the motor and attempt to find a replacement. But by the sound of it, it does sound like a bearing issue.

The refrigerator runs very very loud

The problem with that would possonly be the fan bearing is gone and gets load after a few min running or you have a ice build up and it is hitting the fan.To cheak on this you would have to remove the screws from the rear wall in the freezer compartmant and cheak.If there is ice build up you may need to order a defrost timer .If not you need a new freezer fan motor.hope this fixya:)

Hampton Bay Sussex ceiling fan motor turns on but fan won't turn

I don't agree with previous assessments. The motor may hum, but if it doesn't spin, it is locked up. Most probably a bearing (there are 2, 1 at each end of armature. probably a 6202Z. Very common bearing for ceiling fans of all makes. You can get them in most major metro areas at a bearing distibutor for 8 - 10 bucks or at ebay for $1.69 - $2.50 per bearing plus tax and including shipping. I just got 2 new ones for a total of $6.62 delivered in 3 days. Depend on how savvy you are with tools etc. It's not rocket science but I can understand that some people don't have a clue. No offense. I'm old and don't understand today's computers all that well. Ceilng fans are analog technology.
