Dealing With a Broken AC Motor

Scott-Lee Heating Company understands the stresses that a faulty air conditioner can cause. One of the issues that some systems have is a broken air conditioner motor. This could cause inefficient cooling and cause a variety of problems down the road. There are several signs that could indicate a problem with a motor.

Signs the Motor May Be Broken

If your AC unit is starting to make a strange noise, it could quite possibly be the motor. You might hear humming or a rattling sound. If there are any unusual noises coming from your system, it’s time to have a professional take a look at it.

A faulty air conditioner motor might not be able to turn off when it needs to. If you still hear the motor running even though you’ve turned the AC system off, you might have a problem. While it might be tempting to ignore the problem, it could cause major issues in the future. Another sign of a motor on the fritz is one that cycles on and off unexpectedly. If you’re noticing that the motor cuts in and out when the AC unit is on, it’s time to have it looked at.

A broken AC motor will keep your AC system from producing and circulating enough cold air for your home. This could lead to uneven cooling in your home, and you might end up with rooms that are too hot. While the lack of cold air could be caused by many issues, there’s a good chance that it’s related to the motor.
