Casita Front mounted AC problems.

Hello all,

I have a friend that has recently purchased a '98 or '99 Casita 17 SD with the AC in the front, under the closet.

The fan won't start rotating without a nudge by hand. Then It runs fine while the AC is needed, But every start up requires the nudge.

Any suggestions as to solving this problem?

Also is there any way to get the guts out the front of the case for servicing?

And if it should need replacement any suggestions about make, model and size would be most appreciated.

Perhaps a little oil may help with the fan motor....

Never in doubt, often wrong

AC needs nudge.

Sounds like the fan motor Capacitor may be bad. Look to find a replacement AC, as this one is old and tired.....
