Have 08 winnebago jouney 39z basement air/heat pump

It is making loud noise like maybe a bearing going out or dirt robber attached to fan. Have someone to fix but where is access to blower? It's a Rv products model 6538. Any help would be appreciated.

Sometimes the unit has to be removed from the coach to work on it - one of the drawbacks of basement a/c. I don't know if that applies to the fan, though.

The external cover has hinges just like the basement doors. Remove 5 or 6 screws, and it swings upward to access the the unit. There are large bolts (as I recall 4) that hold the unit to the chassis frame. There will usually be shims on the bolts(about 1 inch square) that come out when you pull the unit out. Make sure you know how many are at each bolt so that you can replace them when re-installing.

Make sure that the shore power is off before removing the unit. The wiring that comes in towards the rear can be left connected if you carefully swing the unit out at the front, leaving the rear supported by the chassis frame. The front of the unit can be supported on a base that will support 200 pounds - Strong crates, a step stool, etc.

You can then remove the unit top cover, power it up, and inspect for problems.

I have a PDF copy of the service manual. If you PM me, I can send it to you via e-mail.
