Customer Question

wow. I didn't expect an actual HUMAN. I have a Trane XR13 split unit, about 8 yrs old. My fan bearings have been making a lot of noise for about a month, and I just noticed the inside unit was running,but the outside unit was humming,and the fan wasn't running.I also have ice built up solid on the top 6" of my coils, and over half way down on two sides.

Your fan motor is out. If it is making noise bearings are gone. Need to reply;ace. Ice is building up because of fan not running. You can reverse it to cool for about 30 minutes to rid the coil of ice. Until you replace motor you will have same problem. Russ
