gst85 :

good morning.open the freezer,tell me if you can see any frost on the wall.and if you can hear the fsan running as well?


 

Customer:

not refrigerator air conditioner

gst85 :

i apologize for that.i accidentally post the wrong question. it was for another customer.


 

gst85 :

does it still run but wont cool?


 

Customer:

for about a week it would run and cool but it made a kind of clicking noise sometimes and it got louder and more frequent.

Customer:

it just stopped yesterday the moror would just stop

Customer:

motor

gst85 :

ok when you say the motor just stopped,do you mean that it stopped blowing air


?

Customer:

so i just turned it off no cool no blowing air, nothing like it seized up?

gst85 :

could you still hear the comprssor running?perhaps a humming sound?


 

Customer:

power and lights on but silent

Customer:

nothing all noise halted

gst85 :

ok so chances are that the fan motor or comprssor has gone bad.1to answer your question yes it can be repaired.parts and labor are going to cost you almost the cost of a new unit.


 

gst85 :

but it would be up to you to decide on that.


 

Customer:

gst85 :

you can go out to your local lowes or homedepot and buy a new unit for about $300.

gst85 :

with warranty.

Customer:

Customer:

Customer:

I have seen window units for that price.

gst85 :

yes sir.or you can also try sears.

Customer:

I like Sears

gst85 :

i would suggest that you give them a try.

Customer:

but thought unit like mine would cost $600

gst85 :

different brands.some may cost more,some may cost less.


 

gst85 :

sears would be a great start.

Customer:

is there a maytag repair person in my area? $300 better than $600?

gst85 :
