I went to turn on the AC in the living room/dining room this afternoon and the fan started making this load racket and then stopped turning. I had my son help me get it out of the wall and I found that it's very rusty and was jammed by the fan shroud.
I managed to clean it up and clear the jam. but I'm really going to have to buy a new one, this one isn't going to last. Or I could get central air and patch up the hole in the wall where the AC unit is.
I have force air heat so the duct work is already there so I am inclined to go for the central air. What do you think?
