Question about Heating & Cooling
We bought a house where the old owners had an amana in the wall air conditioner (model number 12c2my) which recently started making a screeching noise. It screeches sometimes as soon as you turn it on, and sometimes after it's been on for a little while. We tried taking off the cover, but can't see much (belts, the motor) behind the metal slatted inside (I know nothing about these things!) so we couldn't see the belts and since it's in the wall, and on the second floor, it would be hard to take out to check the back. We were just looking everywhere online to see if anyone had any thoughts before we had to buy a new one (the wall ones seems to cost too much!) Does anyone have any thoughts? Thank you!!!!!!!

The inside part is the bit that gets cold, which is where the condensation forms (if using it to cool). there should be a drain. Unfortunately Weather King do not appear to support their products online except to dealers. If you can open the unit up enough to where you can see the space below the coils on the inside part (usually just behind where the air comes out, but not always), you should be able to see the drain - if you can then follow where it goes, then let us know what you have if you can't figure out how to unblock it. If you can post back a couple of photos of the unit and installation I might have a better idea of what to tell you to check. Unplug anything from the power before you start opening things up. If you need help finding your local dealer, please ask and I will look. Hope this helps :)

A screeching or squealing noise usually comes from the fan motor. There may be an oil port and you can buy a small telescoping oil bottle at a super hardware store or an a/c supply house. Before putting in he oil, remember to TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE UNIT and only use a light squeeze on the bottle - over oiling will cause a mess inside the motor. It may be a sealed motor and no oil ports. In either case, budget for a new motor as if it's to the squealing stage, the bearings are already damaged and it's a just matter of time before before the motor bearings fail. If possible, get oil on the bearings ASAP - and use the proper lightweight oil for made for this application.
