it sat for a few years. The ac compressor kicks on but the fan wont blow. Took it apart and the bearings seem fine. The blade moves by hand it's kinda stiff though. Can a little lube fix the fan?

We need real information if you want real help.

The bearings are the things that would make it tight so those two statements seem incongruous.


Is the motor trying to run? Is it getting power??


If you supply it's real model number and answer those questions, we might be able to suggest a course of action. You can find tips for locating the model and serial number identification tag on your appliances at the following link:
