I thought I had heard a squealing sound over the past couple weeks when the AC unit would start in the early morning sometime, so I assume the bearings in the fan motor seized. Is fixing this as straight forward as buying a replacement motor, removing the old motor, and attaching the fan to the new motor? Or is it likely that when the fan motor died it took out other components with it (such as condenser coil or compressor)?
The specs I read off the side of the current motor: Emerson Model #: KA55HXCRK-9885 Part #: 8101-551 Volt: 230/208 Hz: 60 Amp: 1.7 PH 1
I think motors like these would be replacements: http://www.alpinehomeair.com/viewproduct.cfm/productID/453055553/p/Emerson_3851 http://www.alpinehomeair.com/viewproduct.cfm/productID/453055555/p/Emerson_3852 http://www.alpinehomeair.com/viewproduct.cfm/productID/453055554/p/Emerson_6880
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
