Carrier 58PAV Inducer Motor Noise


Hey all.

I have a Carrier 58 PAV Furnace, and for the past several days it's been making an increasingly disturbing noise, a high pitched humming/whistling noise, that is coming from the induction motor assembly. When the motor assembly turns off, it sounds like a jet engine powering down. All the noise goes away when it stops spinning. Any idea what this means or what's causing the problem? Does it need to be replaced? The furnace seems to be functioning properly despite the noise. Any help or insight is greatly appreciated.

Carrier 58PAV Inducer Motor Noise


pull the lowest drain tube the black rubber ones on the inducer enclosure and see if water comes out (more than a couple drops) if so drain trap may be clogged and preventing proper drainage makeing the blower wheel become a paddlewheel

Carrier 58PAV Inducer Motor Noise


Hey there, I came across this topic because I have the same Carrier 58PAV (12 yrs old) and I have a new growling/rattling noise coming from somewhere in the inducer motor assembly. I'm about to head to the parts store but I'm unsure if I need the wheel, the motor, or both. I already took the assembly out and the fiberglass gasket is worn-out and won't be able to be salvaged. I saw the reply to this post and don't have any rubber black hosings for draining. Is that a humidifier/dehumidifier item that might be optional?
Question for the experts: I took the wheel off the inducer and noticed that there's a little play in the hub and the wheel itself. Is that normal or should the hub be held immobile to the wheel?
Thanks!

A Pav is a mid efficiency furnace with no drain hoses. You need to replace both the motor and wheel as it gets off balance. Be VERY careful how you handle those wheels as they bend VERY easy and get off balance and will create vibration and future noise.

Hi Yuri,
Can you please tell where can I find parts for Carrier Furnace 58PAV in Calgary, Canada, particularly the inducer motor and gaskets rather than replacing the whole assembly.
Thanks
