What Is an AC Blower Fan?

An AC blower fan is a device that helps to circulate air in an air conditioning system. The fan consists of a set of blades that rotate inside a housing. As the blades turn, they create an airflow that helps move air through the ductwork of the AC system. 

An electric motor powers the blower fan, typically running at high speed to generate the necessary airflow. In most cases, the blower fan is located near the evaporator coil in the AC unit. It allows the circulated air to pick up heat from the coil, which helps cool the air circulated throughout the home.

Here are some reasons why your AC blower fan may be failing.

The Fan Blades May Be Dirty or Blocked

When your AC unit becomes noisy, the first thing you should check is the fan blades. If they are dirty or blocked, they will not be able to spin as freely as they should. It can cause your AC unit to make a lot of noise.

To clean your fan blades, turn off your AC unit and remove the front panel. Once you have access to the fan blades, wipe them down with a clean cloth. You may need a brush or other cleaning tool if they are excessively dirty.

It is best to call HVAX experts to maintain your AC unit and prevent any issues.

The Motor May Be Burned Out

The motor is the component of the AC unit that powers the blower fan. If the motor is burned out, then the blower fan will not be able to operate.

There are a few signs that indicate a burnt-out motor, such as:

  • The AC unit makes strange noises when it is turned on
  • The blower fan does not operate at full power
  • The AC unit does not cool the air as effectively as it used to

If you notice any of these signs, then it is important to call a professional AC repair technician. A burnt-out motor is not something that can be repaired on your own.

The Bearings May Be Worn Out

Do you hear a grinding noise coming from your AC unit? It could signify that the bearings in the blower fan are worn out. If you continue to use the AC unit with worn-out bearings, it will eventually overheat and burn out. Replacing the bearings is a relatively easy repair that you can do yourself.

If you notice your AC unit isn't blowing as much air as it used to, it's probably time to clean the blower fan. A build-up of dirt and dust on the blades can reduce the airflow.
