Question about Fedders Heating & Cooling
The fan bearings have become gummed up and will need to be replaced or cleaned. I am assuming yours is not a split type. If so you will need to remove the whole unit from its casing. Have a look at this link :
It is an installation manual and shows what to do to install/remove the unit.

The problem will be either the capacitor for the motor or the motor itself. You can check the capacitor 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 it looks swollen then it is bad. Does the fan spin freely by hand when the power is off. If not then it probably needs to be replaced. You can check the motor windings with an ohmmeter. I have dealt with a few where everthing seemed to check out but the motor was bad. Some problems won't show up until the motor gets hot.

It seems to be a problem with blower motor. The bearings are seizing up when the motor is difficult to turn with power to it.
Generally, if the capacitor is bad, it won't turn at all or will quickly overheat and go out on internal overload.
If the motor feels "tight" when trying to spin it, the bearings are seizing and the motor will have to be replaced.
If there are oil ports, you might be able to spray some lubricant inside such as WD-40, but this does not always work and, if it does, it is only for a short time,but it might get you by if you need the A/C and cannot get it repaired immediately.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
