Question about Frigidaire Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I am attempting to replace a broken fan blade. I have the correct part. But I a stymied on how to access it. It appears it will have to be installed from the rear of the unit, but can't figure out what to disassemble without disassembling the whole unit.

    Frigidaire Model FAS226N2A and its the fan that blows out the rear over the coils and fins, not the blower fan assy that blows out the front. Looks more like the blades of an ordinary window fan.

    Its the condenser fan I am replacing. there is a large plastic housing around the actual fan that is connected to the front part of the unit with three long spokes, but the screws are inaccessible. Apparently hidden behind all that styrofoam they say not to remove. And to even attempt to remove it seems to involve disassembling almost everything. This plastic piece I mention that has to get out of the way to provide access is connected to the condenser tubing and fins in the back and hugs around the fan blade. But as I say....looks like you have to work your way through removing it through the front of the unit.

    How discharge cleaning blade

    Theres a lot of disassembly involved for that. You open the front door....unplug & remove the toner hopper open the right door & remove a metal cover...then take out the developer unit. Thedn back to the front to remove a cooling fan & then screws to take out the drum process unit to access the cleaning assembly and clkeaning blade. If you are not a copier technician....I would not attempt it and call one to get the job done correctly. I assume you must have streaks or lines on the copies which prompted your question.

    I have a 1400 btu portable air conditioner ( AMANA ) and the fan is broken, how to replace it.

    Obviously, you will have to disassemble part of the cabinet to access the fan blade. Removig the blade should not be difficult. If it's the fan motor, than that may be a challenge. However, since you did not furnish the Model Number of your AC Unit, there's not much more I can tell you, other than where to find the part(s) you'll need. Try Factory Appliance Parts You'll definitely need the correct Model Number of your unit, to search for the part(s) you'll need.

    Hope this helped you.

    I need to replace the pull chain that controls the blade speed for my Hampton Bay ceiling fan. I do not know the model number, but it is a 52" five-blade fan.

    If the chain is broken off at the switch, you will need to replace the entire switch. It is not difficult to do and you can purchase a new switch from either Lowe's or Home Depot. You''ll find the switch in the ceiling fan department.

    All you need to do, to remove the switch is remove the bottom cover of the fan housing, where the switch is located (if you have a light kit, you will need to remove it). This will give you access to the wiring and the switch. The switch is held in place by a threaded retainer ring on the outside of the fan housing. Unscrew it and push the switch back into the housing, Disconnect the wire nuts and totally remove the switch. Take it with you, when you go to purchase a new one.

    If the chain is still visible by at least 1" all you need to do is purchase a new chain (usually comes with connector) and connect the two together.

    As always, be sure the electricity is turned off to the fan, before attempting any repairs.

    Hope this helps solve your problem.

    How can i tell if the fan clutch on my 05 titan has gone bad

    * Fan operation can be checked by spinning the fan by hand.
    * A noticeable wobble or any blade that is not in the same plane as the rest indicates that replacement is in order. The fan can also be checked by removing it and laying it on a flat surface. If it is straight, all the blades should touch the surface. Never attempt to straighten a damaged cooling fan. Bending it back into shape might seem easier (and cheaper) than replacing it, but doing so is risky. Whenever metal is bent, it is weakened.
    * Fan clutches use a fluid-filled chamber (usually silicone) to turn the fan. Obviously, loss of the drive fluid will render the fan useless.
    * One of the simplest checks is to visually inspect the fan clutch for signs of fluid loss.
    * Oily streaks radiating outward from the hub shaft mean fluid has leaked out past the bearing seal.
    * Most fan clutches offer a slight amount of resistance if turned by hand when the engine is cold. They offer drag when the engine is hot. If the fan freewheels easily hot or cold, replace the clutch.
    * Another check that should be made is to push the tip of a fan blade in and out. Any visible looseness in the shaft bearing means the fan clutch should be replaced.
    * Fan blades are balanced at the time of manufacture but can be bent if handled carelessly.
    * Likewise, fan clutches are machined very accurately to run true. However, rough handling at the time of pump replacement causes nicks and dents on the mounting faces. This can cause the fan blade to be installed crookedly. Serious trouble might follow soon after the car is back in service.
    * Therefore, handle fan clutches and blades with care and be sure to file away any nicks, burrs, or dents someone else might have caused. Obviously, if any fins have been broken off the fan clutch, it must be replaced.

    Radiator fan has broken blade need to change out the fan, need instructions on how to do it. I have the fan...

    Remove the upper half of the fan shroud to access the radiator fan. The fan should be held on by 4 bolts to the clutch fan. Unbolt the fan from the clutch fan and remove the fan, when installing use a little lock tight to ensure the bolts don't come losses and put everything back on revers. Good luck and hope this helps.
