A/C Problem

I tried turning on my A/C for the 1st time yesterday on my TT. I can hear the comp kick on but no air flowing from the unit. I am going to take a guess and say the fan took a dump. I also tried turning the fan on only. I can hear a buzz from the A/C unit but no air flow. If its the fan, how much of a PITA would it be to change that out. I just got this TT used 06.

If you can access the fan either from the inside or roof give it
a little spin. Maybe you can stick a long slender screwdriver
thru a louver or something.
With the AC OFF, give the fan a spin.
It might just be stuck.
If it seems stuck and you get it moving and that cures it,
then you'll need to disassemble enough to oil the shaft.
Use engine oil. Just a couple drops. WD40 might work
for a short time but it'll evaporate in a few weeks.
Engine oil will last a couple years if you can manage to get it
on the shaft bearings.
It's doubtful the motor actually has an oil hole but maybe....

It's also possible the run capacitor has taken a dump.
These are not expensive.
Check for a stuck fan motor first.
If the fan is not stuck but it hums and trys to turn, it's probably
a bad capacitor.
This is more likely a shop job but I've changed the one on my
home AC. But I've got 37 years of industrial maintenance under
my belt.

Let us know what you find.
Good luck!

Dan pretty much covered the problems. You can access the fan by removing the indside air box and reaching your hand up in the discharge duct. Be sure to turn off the power until you get a good feel for how it feels in there. You can spin the wheel and see if it's stuck or not.
