There are a number of things that can go wrong with your air conditioning system and the older it gets, the more repairs that have to be performed. Every AC is made up of a complex network of parts, in which one of those parts is the AC fan motor. You fan motor is usually located near the top of your outside unit, either above or next to the condenser.
