Goodman motor availability


I'm having a frustrating time with the blower motor in my Goodman HVAC unit. The motor is locked up and I need to replace it. I have not been able to find the same part number available online. The manufacturer and service agents refuse to sell the motor to a home owner. They want $85 per hour plus parts (at a markup) to replace a motor that I am fully capable of doing myself. Is there a supplier that can sell this motor direct to me? Is there a cross reference for other motor that might work in my unit. It is a GE motor with 8 wires.
Model number:
5KCP39GG T784 S

I already have the blower assembly out and the fan off the shaft. I just need the replacement motor.

Thanks,

NT

Many times you can buy the whole assembly cheaper than just the motor. Check that out and see what a whole assembly is. When I replace a bad motor that's what I do. I can just slide out the old one and put in the new one.

This says it replaces a 5KCP

One note - when I start spending $200+ for parts to install myself on a $900-$1100 furnace I start to think real hard about replacing the whole thing. If it's an older unit and it looks like other $200+ parts might fail in the near future then think about a total replacement.

Where'd that come from Marv? Don't nobody sell the whole blower assembly the way you describe. And it it sure wouldn' be cheaper than just the motor it self.
