So for those considering a portable unit AC, this is mine that is about 6 years old… I need to figure out what went wrong for sure!

Am I on the right track thinking this is a bad bearing with the shaft that spins the fans? Diagrams of this thing are hard to come by so I am guessing until I rip it apart, and even then, I will have to take VERY careful measurements once it is apart and the bearings out assuming they are bad, to get replacements…

I know absolutely nothing about air conditioners, but I guess the crescendo of noise suggests something heating up, and a bearing has to be high on the list.

I found the hole saws! They were in an unfinished drawer in my miter saw bench.

Great, I commented on another post you made about it.

Storing them there sounds like something I would do as well…...........
