What is the reason for a sluggish air conditioner fan?
It could be that the capacitor is going bad or the bearings in the motor.
Both a dehumidifier and an air conditioner remove moisture from the air. Both a fan and an air conditioner move air. An air conditioner, however, cools air which a combination dehumidifier and fan can not do. If it is hot, and especially if there is an elderly person liable to suffer from heat stroke or heat exhaustion, an attempt to replace air conditioning with a dehumidifier and a fan could lead to death.
You have no windows in your apartment can you have a air conditioner in your aprtment with no windows?
Check your furnace fan. The air conditioner unit can be running but the air circulation is usually done with the fan on the furnace. If you have a fan switch on the thermostat, check to see if it is in the auto position. If it has the settings on/auto/off, you can switch it to the on position and see if you get any air movement then. If not, you could have a broken belt.
No, you can not use your air conditioner if the fan outside is not working. Simply because, the heat picked from your indoor air has to be rejected out side, if the out side fan is not working the rate of heat rejection will be very minimal, and as a result the indoor unit can not take any more heat, as a result, the air conditioner will not be cooling after few minutes.

What could it be when your central air conditioner fan is working but there is no air coming out of any of the vents?
The fan on the ac unit cools the air, it doesnt move the air through the vents. There is a device not connected to the air conditioner, usually in the underside of the house called the air handler. This moves the air through the vents. It is usually a squirrel cage looking device and you should get this checked out.
There are a few things that might cause an air conditioner to make a rattling noise. It could be that the there is dirt and debris in the cabinet. If this is the case, cleaning the cabinet should stop the rattling. The reason could also be loose panels on the cabinets. The fan could also be bent and no longer straight.
First determine the symptoms the air conditioner is having. For example, does it have power, is the fan running but no cold air, is the cold air not cold enough?
