ge ecm 2.3 motor failed magnet glue.


The module is a custom programed controller. In this case, it keeps a constant rpm, regardless of the static pressure or filter restrictions. This one is indeed 3 speeds, but the controller does not change the speeds.

The controllers are custom programed by each MFGR in an attempt to make the systems more efficiant.

The failure of the controller, from what I have read, is most times a varisistor on the control board. cutting out or replacing the varisistor puts the motor back in service!!!!

The VS ECM version 2.3 is NOT a constant speed motor. It increases or decreases speed to maintain set air flow based on the amount of torque it is exerting. This is also programmed into the module.

Even the X13 changes speed to an extent to maintain a torque value, but not enough to be a VS blower.

that really shows what I know. I appologize for the mis-information. I was under the impression that it was basically the same as the x13 (which I have, and the 2.3 is in my brothers system).

Thank for setting me straight!!!!!

Its hard to stay up with all of the new technology.

Your X13 is probably slightly more efficient then your brother's VS ECM ver2.3, and operates much the same, just can't vary its speed or run as fast.

Interesting all the technology. The key thing for us DIYs is can we change one of these out if ours fails? It looks like if we bought a generic we'd need to get it programmed for our furnace make/model. Otherwise might have to try to get the specific one made and pre-programmed for our brand furnace... but I suspect that might be hard to get hold of.
