Deli case had 2 axial fans on condenser , one was locked up.

I took the little thing apart and cleaned up the bearings really nice , oiled the cotton swabs , they were just dry as a bone , bolted back together , gave the fan a spin with my hand , was smooth as a babys butt , re installed.

I normally just replace them , but didnt have one with me and it was 5 oclock.

Old boss I used to work for always said dont try to save them , they dont last long.

Should I have waited until next morning to install a new axial fan , or you think this one will be fine ....
