3 Signs Your AC Motor Needs Repairing

It seems to be a fact of life that air conditioning problems don’t occur at convenient times. In fact, it’s usually the hottest days that push an old AC into finally breaking down. We don’t want you to suffer in a sweltering home! Our team here at East Coast Mechanical, Inc. is here to make sure your system is well-maintained to prevent major issues from occurring in your Palm Beach County, Broward County, Martin County, or St. Lucie County home.

Take a look at these warning signs that your AC motor is need of repair:

1. AC Randomly Shuts Off

If your air conditioner is able to turn on and function for a while before it suddenly shuts off, it may be due to an overheating motor. If the motor is overheating, you should have it checked out by a technician ASAP before the issue gets worse. We’ll be able to diagnose the issue and fix it.

2. AC Makes Odd Sounds

When your air conditioner starts making sounds like grinding, squealing, or screeching, consider it a cry for help. Common causes of odd noises include broken motor bearings or a slipped belt. Depending on the severity of the issue, your unit will either need repairs or a full replacement. Either way, it’s important to not delay. Over time, an issue that could have been solved with a simple repair can worsen and damage your AC.

3. No Cold Air from AC

Another sign your AC needs motor repair is when you can hear the unit running but it’s not producing any cold air. This issue is likely caused by a faulty blower motor, although it could be a bad connection or issue with the relay. An experienced technician will be able to diagnose the issue and have the unit producing cold air again in no time.
