Is this Condensor Fan Motor bad?
I recently had my AC serviced and the tech told me that I need a new contactor and Condensor Fan Motor in the unit.
The tech said that the Fan motor is leaking oil around the seal. So, given that he wanted $600 to replace the part I thought that I would take a look myself. Here is a picture of the fan motor, I am not sure if that is actually "leaking around the seal" or just dirt build-up.
What is your expert recommendation?
