Hi rookie50

I did a little research, if you can even find one for $200.00 I would jump on it. The ones I found started at $250.00. Good luck with your search.

Thanks for your reply. Too bad you can't just replace the fasco motor not the whole assembly!!

That's part of the racket. Yes, it would be much easier. I almost feel ashamed having to replace 2-300 dollar inducer fan assemblies (and even more expensive on RTU's) when a 50 dollar motor would solve the problem. Plus, if they'd start putting in actual ball bearings in those motors instead of the bronze bushing type bearings, we might never need to replace those fans during the life of the furnace. There's gonna be a class-action some day, mark my words.

Hmm. Didn't want to start a war here. I'm now just an old retired homeowner also, but used to work for a control company. Furnaces haven't changed much over the last 25 years since the introduction of secondary heat exchangers and electronic ignition.We (they) quickly got the electronics down pretty good and for the most part are very reliable. The most persistant problems that resulted in the most service calls both in and out of warranty have come from 1. the hot surface ignitor and 2. the draft inducer motor.

The hot surface ignitor is no big deal at $20-$30 and most homeowners can do it themselves if so inclined after seeing the fix once. This is comparable to replacing the thermal couple on the old units. Understandable .

Now the draft inducer assembly is another matter. Some makes had a dismal record on these and had to make product changes to fix recurring failures.When homeowners see such a small motor that has failed they thing they are being taken when presented with a $300+ repair bill.I'm not a design engineer and I also think the sleeve oilite bushing is a decent application here, but why can't the assembly be made so that the motor alone can be replaced?Also why are there so many different shapes to these assemblies making stocking them a nightmare.
One last point, I'm more than willing to replace my twenty year old furnace with a new an better technology when and if it comes out.Now I have the latest technology in a twenty year old package that still has its heat exchangers in good condition and runs well when you replace the few parts that will break down with time.

Hi ace & rookie50

TIME OUT GUYS, this site is for those who are trying to learn and want insight from professionals. Mdshunk I have the upmost respect for if you notice when he remarks he does it sternly and tactfully. KEEP THIS SITE CLEAN!. I have enjoyed giving people the benifit of my knowledge. I and the others like me would like to be able to continue doing so. If you do not enjoy this site, don't post here!!!. I used to install the Snyder General Arcoair & Comfortmaker furnaces for my Dad when he was still alive. They had what was called a RPJ or rolled patent joint that had a lifetime warranty and to the best of my knowledge ICP is honoring any replacement heat exchangers. But I have personally never seen one fail. The last one I put in I was 16 years old and I am 38 now. The units I put in are still purring like kittens.

Rusty

I am sorry, but his comment about a class action suite put me over the edge. He obviously knows NOTHING about the HVAC trade or how we operate and I just hate STUPID people.

mdshunk is licensed in this trade, and if you disagree with his opions, you may so state without personal attacks. If you disagree with my editing, you may contact the admin, Nathan, and let him know your opinion, via private message or e-mail. It will not be allowed in the open forum. Jay

Yeah, you're right. I'm pretty dumb and know nothing about the trade.

I'm just a successful contractor with trucks and employees and a Mensa member since 1988. I should just keep my mouth shut. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Sorry you cannot respect mine. I find the rate of inducer fan failures personally unacceptable.
