Repairing my friend's portable air conditioner unit

I’ve constantly thought of myself as being pretty handy with tools and home repairs… I can handle most repairs on my automobile too, from a self-explanatory tire change and spark plug replacement to an engine tune-up! I have all the tools and device necessary to handle this at home in my garage, however I’ve never thought to use my “workshop” as a locale to service other appliances, however that is, until a neighbor of mine asked me to repair up her portable air conditioner unit. This was one of those models that fits into a window in a home or apartment, and can be bought for next to nothing! I get the appeal of these window cooling system units since they can technically be installed anywhere, however they aren’t the most long-lasting option, however still, I decided I would try using my garage as a workshop to repair up her air conditioner device – or at least try to do it, however she told me it wasn’t blowing chilly air anymore, however when I clogged the device in to test it, the portable air conditioner device wasn’t blowing anything at all! I tested the refrigerant line, too – it was fully charged. I figured the motor for the blower fan must be broken or burned out, so I opened up the device and tested it out. Sure enough, I found that the motor was totally burned out! My neighbor must’ve been running this window cooling system device for afternoons and evenings separate from a single stop. I was able to find a replacement motor for the blower fan at this interest shop near my house, and got the window cooling system device working again!
