What is the best way to replace the condenser fan with (hopefully) a minimum of disassembly? (The fan blades on mine basically disintegrated.)
I searched the board and even found my own previous post on this, but that was a situation where I was replacing the condenser so everything was accessible. (Also it was nearly six years ago and I've forgotten the details.) I have found references to there being a way to unbolt the fan and drop it out the bottom.
As I recall there are 3 fasteners behind the fan motor that attach the fan to the frame, and the frame is bolted to the condenser. It looks like you have to remove the entire fan/frame assembly, replace fan, put the assembly back in place. Clearance is very tight!
I think I've identified the fasteners that need to be removed, circled in the photo:
The one on the right appears to go in through the back? (But there's no room back there to remove it that way.) Not sure how to deal with that one:
Anyhow, hot weather is on its way so any tips on how to R&R this thing would be greatly appreciated!
