Trane a/c fan

my mil had a new a/c unit put in about 4-5 years ago.
looking like this one, though i didn't think to get the model #.
Trane Air Conditioners

she said the a/c quit working. i had a look at it, looked fine.
i took a stick and tried to spin the fan, it was seized.
but i was able to free it up, didn't take much.
the a/c works fine now.

what i am wondering is : is this an issue with these ?

can i replace, if needed, the motor myself ? (i told her to use it, but keep an eye on it)
i am mechanically inclined.

Apparently your more mechanically capable than most people if you freed it up. One thing about machines, once they do something once, they always do it again in a short time. i think ur gonna have to replace the motor, but let it run till it does it again

probably has a 5 year part warranty...... Call your local trane dealer or the installer with the model and serial to check on part warranty
