That looks like pieces of the blower wheel. Time for a new one.

blower motor vibration


that is the discharge of the ID motor for the heating which is the burner temp so it looks like the squirrel let go the motor might still run with a heat call but the air pressure switch might not make with the rounds gone...carrier might do a contact closure to proof ID fan be carefull... http://www.bestbuyheatingandaircondi...gory_Code=m-im might get away cheap with just a squirrel change out onto the exsisting motor

You are better off buy the motor and wheel together. Getting that old wheel off that old motor is a ***** . You send more for repair but send less time working on it and save saying bad words.

Hey you guys thanks for the help. Is changing that wheel something that an ordinary human being should attempt or not?

You would have to buy a wheel puller. It costs about the same as a new motor.

Ask for a new inducer assembly. Change the entire assembly. Its four or five bolts holding the entire thing in place. I would also check the heat exchanger if I were you. Its very common to find rusted heat exchangers when you find the inducer fan rusted. On these gas packs, condensate forms in the heat exchanger and inducer assembly during cooling cycles. If the heat exchanger is in bad shape, save your money and get a new unit!
