AC Cleaning - Boosted Airflow 80%

So at 3AM this morning I start feeling a little 'not so cold'... So I got up to turn the temp down by rolling my dial to blue and realized not much air was being blown out.
Shut it down and almost ordered a Motor from Amazon. Did some research on YouTube - turned my cage fan by hand - it rolled fine ... So crawled up top and removed the cover and saw ice - my cage fan was not drawing enough air and it froze the coil up... (I'm not low on refrigerant).

Pulled the Condenser fan off with a 5/32" Allen and pulled the 2support leg screws for the motor and 5 Plate screws holding it to the unit and found this...ImageUploadedByTapatalk1435513679.255232.jpgImageUploadedByTapatalk1435513728.279509.jpg

Here's a YouTube link I found to doing this job.
A bit slow paced but thorough.

YOutube videos always help with a tough job you're unsure about.

Amen!!!!!! YouTube and Forums have made me an expert of many things I was never an expert on... EVER!!! Even afterwards~ LOL

I gotta say it's better than going to the Library - searching the Dewy Decimal system for a book that may or may Not have a good picture reference...
