Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

Replacing squirrel cage blower

\015 Due to our location, Soleus will not honor warranty on my split system a/c, KFR-1200. They have sent me a replacement squirrel cage for the air handler. (Original cage was damaged by loose piece of metal.) Can anyone advise me how to get the squirrel cage out and the new one in? Thanks.\015

Amana heat pump emergency heat comes on but blower will not start. The call for heat comes in and the heating element(s) glow red for a few seconds and then there is a "click" and the heating strips de-energize. The blower fan motor doesn't come on, however the squirrel cage fan spins freely. The heat pump stopped working several years ago, but I just used the emergency heat option for heating solution. The squirrel cage fan motor was replaced about 3-4 years ago.

The bolt, screw, whatever that holds the squirrel cage in place has broken off our unit. What size and type do I need to get to replace it? It's on a shaft with one flat side, and there is a place for a bolt or flat-head screw, but nothing in it, and it's making a horrible, metal on metal noise, with the squirrel cage moving freely from left to right on the shaft.

Use an Allen Head Screw. There are different sizes/threads that are used. Your best bet is to take the wheel with you and match one up. I've worked for several HVAC contractors and, if someone had stopped by our shop with a blower wheel and needed th ... Air Conditioners

My Goodman air handler RELAY, ELECTRONIC BLOWER TIME DELAY makes a clicking noise 4 or 5 five cycles (about 10+ Sec delay ) before the squirrel cage fan will come/stay on.
