What type of noise?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

not unlike a squeeking fan belt in a car. noise goes in and out.

Expert:  Luke replied 8 years ago.
Sounds like a bad fan motor. They squeal when the bearing goes bad.

it sounds like there is pretty much no way for me to fix the existing fan motor. would it be a big deal for me to replace the fan motor myself? any idea of cost compared to having a tech come to the house?
Expert:  Luke replied 8 years ago.
Around 40 dollars for the part generally. Tech would cost substantially more.

thank you for your assistance. even though you weren't able to fix, you were helpful with solution, and i will accept paying you. i'm reaonably handy. do you think i can order the part and do it myself?
Expert:  Luke replied 8 years ago.
Generally this jub is pretty self explanitory. Should be able to tackle yourself.
