Crack in Inducer Motor Housing


My gas company shut off and sealed the gas supply to my furnace because there is a crack in the Inducer Motor Housing of my furnace (Zephyr brand, 80% AFUE). I want to know if I can use Epoxy Putty to fix this crack. After I apply Epoxy Putty to the crack, how can I restore the gas supply. Help Please, Thanks a lot in advance

If the gas company put a lock on the gas main I believe you have to call them to unlock it. Did they leave a number to call on their tag?
You better ask them if you epoxy it will they accept it.

Doubt they'll accept an epoxy repair.

You need to replace the inducer. And then call the gas company to check it and restore your gas service.
