Noise some times and fans dont work some times

99 out of a hundred times - when the fan motor on a window unit 'makes noise and works intermittedly,' you have a bad fan motor which will require replacing.

Sounds as if the fan motor's bearings are making noise - which - would account for the fan working only part time. The reason being is that the 'bearing noise' you are hearing - is a result of the bearings being wore out - thus it causes the fan motor to heat up and 'go off' - on the internal overload' which is built into the fan motor.

Like I said above - most commonly the 'fix' is to replace the motor.

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.

My 1992 cadillac deville radiator fan comes on and blows the fuse, causing overheating

It is possible that the radiator fan bearings are dry and causing extra drag on the motor and blowing the fuse. Without the fan operating you will experience overheating. The bearings are usually a plain bronze bush type and the lubrication dries out eventually. You could try removing the fan assembly and carefully dismantling the motor. Once apart check for worn out brushes and if they are OK, then soak the bearings in engine oil and reassemble. The bearings are self aligning but once it is running after the motor has been put back together, give the motor body a light tap on the sides near the bearings to make sure the rotor is running free. If this all sounds too difficult, you may be able to get a replacement fan assembly from a salvage yard.

Fan Motor Replacment for YDK-16-4-L

We had the motor go out on our unit. My father diassembled the blower while on the wall. He pulled the motor out and found that the bearings were cheap and unsealed. He replaced them with sealed and higher grade bearings from Grainger. He reassembled the unit and it worked. It sounds quieter.

Broan bath fan motor has bad bearings.New motor or new bearings?

The motor is usually not repairable. You can sometimes purchase the motor and fan separate but that is about it. Here is a link to a blog about replacing motors.

Side by side F/F is making a noise it sounds as if a fan is having trouble in the twin cooling area. could it be too cold? do I need to get an expert I to look at it?

If it is a high pitched noise that you hear it is the fan motor bearings. The evaporator fan motor should be replaced in this case.
Call the store where it was purchased from and if they have a repair man they can send him out to make the repairs for you.
