    Ac freezing

    Blower motor went out a/c repairman replaced the motor and everything worked great then after a month we started hearing a loud noise from the inside unit well the blowers fan blades had some how came apart at the weld and still was spinning and blowing hard cold air through the vents but it was jumping and making a horrible noise so repairman came out replaced the Blowers fan blade put the new motor back on the blower then put the squirrel cage and all back in the unit wired everything up and turned it on it works but its not blowing as hard as it was and now the inside unit after about 45 minutes freezes up and before the fan blades broke you could feel the air being pulled into the coils to the blower but now it feels like its barely sucking any air into the coils to blow out the vents. Just asking what might be causing it to freeze and not blowing as hard as it was before

    May be the wrong wheel, or installed backwards.
    Either way you’ll want to get it addressed quickly.

    ^ This is just rich.

    I never hear any pronunciations here...ever.
    Is the Religious Right to blame for Christianity's decline?

    They argued that, as the Religious Right became increasingly visible and militant, it became associated with Christianity itself. And if being a Christian meant being associated with the likes of Jerry Falwell, many people—especially political moderates and liberals—decided to simply stop identifying as Christians altogether.

    Just based on your statements I would want to make sure that the correct blower wheel was installed, properly, and that it is turning in the correct rotation.

    The conventional view serves to protect us from the painful job of thinking.

    Yes there is.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
