I have an old GE air conditioner outside that is giving a 60Hz hum from the
fan motor without turning. I can get it going manually, but it is fighting
against me when the motor is actively trying to run.
This is an old unit, but it has been well-behaved otherwise. It came with
the house, so the only thing I know is what I got from the inside cover. I
have a charging chart that is for BGTA742B21b/B1BG and BTB942A199A. Do
these numbers refer to the whole unit? I am trying to narrow down the
model information since I think the old sticker has long worn off.
I assume a Sears appliance store would have replacement parts. I used to
have a twin washer/dryer with a GE motor that one here stocked.
I also wonder if the motor could be salvaged, but I assume not.
