Condenser Fan Replacement


I am trying to replace my AC condener fan, but cannot get the old fan blades off the old fan motor due to corrosion. Any suggestions?

heat works well with a puller....tools make a world of difference...even then sometimes we ruin things...if its that bad cut both ends of shaft off heat it up drive it out .using drive rod .same size as shaft...picture would help

Condenser Fan Replacement


lock down screw is out...WD40 spray the hub and exposed shaft.take a channel locks and grab the shaft between the "motor and the blade" turn the hubfan blade area with your hand turn back and forth it will break loose....sand the exposed shaft above the blade so it can slide off.be careful with the blades on that fan if they get bent you'll have to get a new one....

Condenser Fan Replacement


A gear puller and penetrating oil did the trick.
