Carrier ECM motor number


Problem is price with Ultimate puller. It's a one time use item for me, and I don't know anyone who keeps one. One retailer wants 250 bucks for one. I think I would throw the squirrel cage away first.

But my issue is mechanical. I have tried to remove the fan from the motor shaft using a puller, wd40, bolt blaster, rust remover, you name it. Using a puller is only bending the blades on the fan, and I am really afraid of mushrooming the motor shaft head. I can't get a wrench on the shaft of the motor from the other end, and yes, I took the screw out of the aluminum sleeve. A buddy is recommending torching it, and then using the puller. Any hints?

There are no blades to be bent on a squirrel cage; only vanes . Last time I looked there was no groove cut into hub collar to allow a fan puller a grip.

A hub puller should only cost $75.

Here's an old school way of removing the shaft: A brass bludgeon/punch.

It's just a round pipe shaped solid brass tool that machinist use for applications like this.

After lubing the shaft ( i use Vaseline in a tube.Works wonders) use the brass bludgeon (should be larger than the shaft you are trying to jerk out) to beat on the shaft head. It will push the shaft into the orifice until it is i flush with orifice opening. Use a standard punch (smaller than the diameter of the hub collar) to beat the shaft the rest of the way out.


You could try taking it to a local hvac company to have it pulled or a motor shop. Cost you less than a puller.

Good luck

Isn't a vane just a blade at a different angle and no central connection? Either way, they are bending with a normal three armed puller.

The price I saw for the Ultimate was over 250. I can give you the link, but since I saw your post, I am finding it in your range.

Thanks for the tip! I may end up throwing the entire thing in the car for the motor guy to deal with. I am usually a guy that just has to finish the job by myself when I start it.

of course, there is money in that madness for the pros!

If the head is good you might also check with a motor rebuilder.

Might be less expensive then a new one. i'm just presuming the motor portion can be rebuilt as the business that most motor rebuilders get comes in the form of DC motors.

couldn't hurt to try.
