I have a comfortmaker softsound 1000+ heat pump (model chp048akc3). Last night, the condensor started making a loud whinig sound. When I checked it out, the fan was not spinning, but looked like it wanted to. I gave it a nudge, and it started spinning again, then slowed down and stopped. Hard. Nudged it, and back to spinning. I thought it might be the bearings in the motor were shot. But with the unit off, the motor spins freely, no binding that I can see. Any ideas what may be wrong with this motor? Could it be the capacitor? Do i need a new motor? Thanks for any help.
