Heil 5000 HE unit not working


Until yesterday my unit was working fine but then I noticed that although the attic fan was running and pushing air through the downstairs vents it was getting hotter. The unit is 10 years old and original equipment with the house. I checked the unit outside and found the fan not turning but making a buzzing sound. (I think I should qaulify that a little It buzzes for a while and you can see the blades attempting to rotate. After a while the buzzing stops and the blades no longer attempt to rotate and i think that may be due to a thermal overload cutoff) I have determined that the motor and bearings are now deffective. Also the rear of the pad on which the unit sits has sunken about an inch to an inch and a half, causing the unit to be slightly unlevel. Would that have anything to do with the problem? Also where would one be able to obtain the proper motor and fan for the unit? Is it practical for me to try to replace it myself? I do have prior electrical and mechanical experience as before becoming disabled I had worked for a number of years as a maintenance mechanic at various manufacturing plants,

There are several site online to get motors also replace the capacitor.

As far as replacing the motor yourself it is a pretty simple job but, if you did maintenance before and are questioning your ability then it's all in your head and up to you.

Just type Heil HVAC parts in the Goggle bar and start searching.

Good luck
