Since you remove the window unit in the Winter and reinstall it in the Summer, as you should. Check the inside of the unit to make sure there's nothing blocking the fan blades. If you stored it in a basement or exterior shed or garage, a Field Mouse may have built a nest in it. Believe me, I've seen stranger things than that happen.

I have an older amana central ac/heating unit, fan not turning outside, did pencil test, turns slowly then stops. changed capacitor a month or so ago all was fine. started making a humming noise so ran and...


Sounds like the fan motor has reached its endpoint. It will have to be removed and replaced. Find the dircuit breaker in your electric panel that supplies power to the air conditioner unit. When you have found the right one, even the humming sounds will be absent. The fan usually is at the top of the unit. You must have opened this to change the capacitor. Remove the fan band motor as a unit and take it to a store like Grangers and determine if they have a motor that would replace the one from your unit. If the motor has a model number on it, you may find a replacement available onlilne by Googling that number and the name Amana. Put electricians tape over the wires that led to the motor, just in case someone turns on the circuit breaker before you have completed the job

Replace the fan. The bearing is worn and it may need a new capacitor.

Air Handler Blower Unit Humming


More then likely it's the transformer. It may be getting weak. I've seen them hum/vibrate almost new and last for years. It's more an annoyance than anything.
