I have this heat/cool a/c and am trying to pull the unit out of the cabinet so check to see why the fan blades keep stopping and making a loud clunk, can anyone help? I removed the two screws the manuel showed but it will not budge. Thanks so much.

    According to the manuel that is not needed, It is on the second story and I can't get to it anyway. It looks like it should just pull forward. The fan keeps gettin stuck and I read that sometimes it just needs to be cleaned and tightened, but without getting it out I can't try that. Thanks

    no it is a 72124, I can't get to the back side as it is in a 2nd story window, and my Husband is in the hospital. On my pg 6 it says to dicard those back screws in the installation, so I have assumed that they are not there, but the pan will not budge. Is it hard to replace the fan motor once I get it out?

    Thanks so much for your help

    Well, the a/c is in a second story window so I really could not get a good picture of it. THe screws I took out seem to be the only ones since the manual says to dicard the ones in the back. It is looking to be a bigger job than I am capable of (husband in hospital). My zip code is 78736. Thanks so much for your help.

There must be other screws in there affecting the unit.... It's impossible to tell without being there in person though.

Please let me know, can you send pictures of the install so I can help you out here?

You will be best served by getting someone in person to help you though, if you send me your zip code I can find someone close to you that is very inexpensive to do this for / with you.

Thanks, just reply to my answer here and I will help

The owners manual on page 6 will help you it has the illustrated steps. This is the 72127 A/C unit correct. If so there should be more then 2 screws.
Remove the screws that fasten the cabinet at both sides and the back.
Slide the unit out of the cabinet by gripping the base pan handle, and pulling it forward while bracing the cabinet with your other hand.
Here is a link to the owners manual:

If you need further assistance please let me know.
Thank you,

Have you checked the rear(outside) of the unit for any other securing screws? then there may also be a small ledge to get over,which is there so when unit is loose in the jacket it doesn't fall out of the jacket when you're not holding it

Why the cooling fan runs very loud?


May be time for a new cooling fan, I wouldn't wait to replace it. Keep an eye on your temp. Guage especially when your at red lights and slow heavy traffic. Any unusual high temp. Means your fan even if blowing air may be bad and it could seize up at any moment and stop working causing the car to over heat bigtime. Should be easy to replace. Usually 4 bolts or screws and a connecting wire.

Very loud when fan is running


This is likely caused by a faulty blower motor bearings, or the fan has something in it or it could possibly have broken. Shut down power to unit, remove cover and inspect the fan shaft, blades, and spin it. it should freely spin. If it hangs up you likely have a bad blower motor.

Not cooling freezer or fridge, and making loud clunking sounds when it shuts off.


Hello Shanika Flores - If your refrigerator is not cooling, it could have a floating restriction in the lines or something more complicated like an issue with the sealed system that only a professional can help with. This can include the compressor not working correctly, the evaporator fan not turning, or even coolant in the lines not at the correct levels to properly cool. If the compressor was running, humming, or even a little warm then that was typically normal. I suggest cleaning the unit out including the coils you can reach, and make sure no food items are blocking any vents in the unit. Also try checking and see if the door seal is bad; place a dollar bill between the body of the freezer and close the door. The dollar bill should stay in place and pull out with a small amount of resistance. If the dollar bill falls out when placed between the gasket and cabinet double check to see if the door is being blocked by anything stopping it from closing it. If any suggestion proves to be ineffective contact a professional to move forward accurately.

I have dell 3300mp,when I turn the power on it makes a very loud noise. It does not make the sound in standby or cool down. It does work and display a signal okay, but it is very loud. Sound like a fan?,...


The main fan that cools the lamp is mostly high speed when the unit is running. when it shuts down it slows the fan down, until it stops in standby. So the noise is only really loud when it is showing a picture.

try setting the fan to eco mode (slower running) and see if the noise is acceptable. If it is still too loud then you will have to replace it. Have a look at the fan and see if any of the plastic blades are missing.

I have a 91 ply acclaim it over heats when in idle and when i stop i dont know why.


You may have a loose fan/water pump belt, a defective cluch fan, or a bad water pump, all these factor in to the reason why when you drive it doesnt over heat.
You see as you are driving the cool air is being forced through the radiator coils/fins and keeping the heat off the coolant in your radiator closed system cool thus no over heating, when you stop this principal theory stops as well and the water becomes hotter with nothing driving it through the radiator fins/veins to cool it off thus...over heating.
Check the belts first for being loose rotted or worn and repair as needed, next engine off of course grab the fan blades one hand on three o clock blade and other hand grasping 9 o clock blade and apply a pull sort of side to side movement to check if the clutch fan or the water pump has excessive side to side play, if so replace both parts that show signs of this side to side wobble/wear.
Be sure to top off any coolant that may have spilled out during operations of your engine.
Hope this helps, good luck!!

Interior cooling fan has stopped spinning,


No fuse. The obvious thing is to check the motor itself, which means it must be pulled. Once you gain access to the motor, with the power shut off to the unit, try spinning the blade to see if it is bound up.
If it's spinning freely, remove it from the unit, and test the windings on the motor for continuity with a VOM meter. If you have no meter or access to one, or aren't familiar with electrical, then take the motor to an Appliance parts house. They can usually test it and most carry motors that are adaptable for beverage coolers. Make sure they know whether the machine is a 120 or 240 volt unit.
If I'm not mistaken that motor runs 24/7 when cooler is powered up.

Fridge making loud screeching sounds


Generally, in my experience, the loud screeching is caused by one of the fan motors or fan blades. There is a fan inside the cabinet (possiblle two, one on the freezer and one on the refrigerator side). Also, there is a fan underneath the unit near the compressor (probably in the back).

If the screeching is coming from underneath then pull the unit out from the wall and remove the cardboard cover at the bottom back. Now turn the unit on and check for where the screeching is coming from.

If it is the fan blade (hitting something) or the motor, you can remove these and replace them easily. UNPLUG THE REFRIGERATOR BEFORE TOUCHING ANYTHING UNDERNEATH THE BACK OF THE REFRIGERATOR.)

Good Luck!

Amana Cooling Condensing Unit fan stops spinning after 15 mins


Capacitor, dirty condencer coil causing the motor amps to run too high. But most likely worn bearing on blade side of motor causing it to pull to one side causing it to over heat and shut down. Sleve bearings should have no side play.

Over heat cooling fan load noise remove and replace


A bearing more than likely has went bad causing your fan to stop properly cooling your unit. Replace with a compatible fan and you should be all set. Hope this helps.
