Roof top AC fail

So one of our roof top AC units crapped the bed. Heard a lot of noice. Went up and discovered that a metal clamp failed. This let the condenser fan slide forward and the blades impacted the condenser disintegrating one blade and breaking a couple others. Of course it is in the 90s. Trying to find parts, mobile service. Might just bring a slide in and home depot portable AC. Until we get home.

If it damaged the condenser forget about parts and just get a replacement A/C unit.

Get a replacement to make life easy.
If possible buy the same model unit and keep the vital components from the damaged one.

Signed,
I have a grenaded generator as a parts farm.
(Actually I fixed the grenaded unit and now have a spare working generator/parts farm.)

Replace it with a new one...period...they are cheap enough. Trying to repair it would be like rebuilding the motor of a worn out weedwacker.

Thank folks: Getting a new unit. The OEM has since been discontinued by AIRXCEL. The replacement is their new model number but some up grades. MACH 10 15,000BTU Heat Pump. Having mobile service do it while on the road, warranty covered.

Better than trying to haul it up there yourself; especially in this heat.
