BASEMENT HVAC
« on: December 27, 2012, 09:58:28 AM »
I hadn't paid attention to the sound of our Mach II basement unit until yesterday when I noticed a bit of stutter just before the blower ramps up. Anyone know what it's likely to be, if I need to worry, can I fix it myself......      Obviously don't need to spend any $$ right now.

Bolts holding the blowers/compressors loosened up a bit?? Sheet metal casing moving at bit?? I have had a similar shudder for years on mine and nothing untoward has happened yet! (same basement AC in my trailer).

Are these bolts easily accessible from laying on the ground?

Nice to know it's not a panic situation.

Mine has always had a little startup noise. When it became a bit of a loud squall it was a bad blower motor. Now it is back to a little  sound. Nothing inside is "available" on mine unless you cut a screen over a small in the bottom, and even then access is very limited.
