Is this the type of component that can be bought "locally"? One of our AC units was making a lot of noise and so it was switched off. When I got home and checked it out I found the fan to be very stiff. I could turn it by hand but I could definitely not spin it. When the thermostat is switched to COOL the fan does not run and the unit gets HOT! So I have decided that the problem is with the motor and would like to replace it. It doesn't seem like a tricky job so, at this point, I am reluctant to shell out extra money to have someone replace the fan. The tricky part could be getting the part. I could order it online and have it delivered if necessary but if I can get it locally for a couple of bucks more I don't mind supporting local business.

From the motor housing:

208-230V

60Hz

1.03A

1110RPM

1/6Hp

1PH A.O. <--- don't know what this means but I understand all the other numbers.

The motor has a 5" diameter and is attached to the housing via 4 bolts in a square pattern with a diagonal of 4 5/8"

We have 3 units in total and the one that is busted is the one that we don't need to really use as much unless we have guests (which we do as of yesterday).

The capacitor is 5MFD 370VAC. (is that millifarads by the way?)

EDIT: by the way, when I say locally I understand that depends on where local is. I should have said can you typically buy this sort of item locally. Local for me is MA by the way.
