Heil Heat pump condenser fan blade


I recently replaced my condenser fan motor on my unit, but I had a heck of a time getting the 4 blade fan blade off the old motor, and upon getting it off I think I bent one or more of the fan blades.
I put the new motor on with the old fan and now have a pretty good vibration in it.
Is there anything I can do to determine which of the baldes are bent ?

Also, how is the best way to test the 20K heat strips to make sure the sequencers are performing as they should ?

It was a balanced fan. You can't get it back to being balanced again. Get a new fan blade.

How do you go about test the heat stips to ensure your sequencers are performing they way they should ? I have 20K heat, and 5 sequencers, in which way do they start up, or do they all come in on a as need basis ?

I turn the thermostat all the way up. And then test each sequencer with an amp meter.

Make sure you do not stick your fingers too close as you are dealing with 240 volts and up to a 150 amp breaker to trip if you short yourself out. You will die B4 that happens.

Scares the heck outta me when checking for 24 volts on the coil of sequencers and the 240 is half an inch away on the next terminal.
