Will condenser coil damage/blockage cause air to exit grill horizontally?


Air is coming out of condenser top grill almost horizontally instead of almost vertically.

At least 1/3 of total condenser surface area is damaged. I've previously posted a similar thread, so I'm aware of some of the other causes, but I never mentioned the condenser coil damage before.

Is this a possible cause?

That would decrease air flow, but not make it come out the sides.

Will these conditions (at least 1/3 blockage of condenser coil surface area & air out sideways) affect the degree of cooling? Raise pressures in system?

If position of fan blade ass'y were slightly too high or too low on motor shaft, air out sideways then?

Too low will cause air to come out the sides.

Yes, 1/3 block age will decrease cooling capacity, and raise the pressures.
