blower isn't working
Thanks to you guys for responding to my post yesterday!! A plumber finally came today and resolved my problem. Basically there were two problems. First the blower fan wasn't level, which was probably the source of the noise I heard Sunday and likely caused the motor to blow out, and second I installed the motor incorrectly.
I was supposed to have tightened a carter pin on the shaft of the motor, so that it could spin the fan. Without tightening that, the motor was running and not moving the fan. Hey, what can I say, I am a single mom tired of getting taken advantage of by some of these contractors. Anyway, I finally found a great plumber who told me in advance what he got an hour and estimated how long it was going to take. Ended up costing me $150.00 in labor, which I thought was more than fair. He practically took half the thing apart!
Thanks again for your input, finally warm again in Rhode Island!!
