    lately it's been kinda cool here,(ice on the windshield this am) and we've run the heat, well the outside unit is fairly new, while im certain the air handler is as old as the house (late 60s early 70s) and when it runs, more so with the heat, it rattles like its gonna come apart, when i pull the cover(after shutting off the power), what should i look for? obviously loose mountings, but could something be broken inside the fan or heat element i should look for?

    thanks!

    addition: if you've ever moved a small refridgerator and heard that rattle that the little jug underneath(compressor)makes when it jiggles.. it sounds like that...
