How do you lubricate an AC condenser fan motor?
Last Updated: 11th April, 2020
- Turn off the power to the system at the disconnect switch and/or the A/C system breaker in the breaker box.
- Remove the top cover of the compressor/condenser unit (the outdoor cabinet).
- Turn the cover or cage assembly upside down to access the oil ports on the motor.

Herein, what kind of oil do you use in a condenser fan motor?
I recommend yearly lubricating your condenser fan motor's sleeve bearings with an ISO 32 turbine oil. Top lubricants would be Amsoil's RCH Series, Synthetic RC Series Rust & Oxidation/Antiwear Gear, Bearing, and Hydraulic Oil, or Exxon Mobil's SHC624 Synthetic Motor Lubricant.
Additionally, how much is an AC fan motor? When your air conditioner's fan motor breaks, it will typically cost about $300 to $600 to replace. It's imperative to get this fixed quickly, since without a working fan motor your air conditioner's compressor can be the next domino to tumble. Its repair is even more significant — usually running closer to $2,000.
Similarly, it is asked, can you use wd40 on a fan?
Never spray WD40 on the ceiling fan motor; as it is not an oil-based lubricant, it can damage the motor instead of loosening any stuck or rusting parts.
