Inducer Blower Replacement


I purchased a replacement inducer blower motor. It looks pretty easy to install. The model is: Furnace Draft Inducer Blower (Goodman J238-112-11064) 115 Volts Fasco # A157

It has two wire connections, but doesn't have +/- or black/white key on the motor itself. Does it matter how it is hooked up? I have a black wire and white wire in the furnace. I also have a hose connection, but that seems obvious. Any help on this motor is appreciated!

It doesn't matter.

See video (and others) on Youtube.

Inducer Blower Replacement


I installed the new inducer motor. But it doesn't seem like its getting any power. I tried the wiring both ways, but no joy. I reset the breaker as well as the thermostat, no joy. Anyone have any ideas of what could be the issue?

First establish that the thermostat circuit is good by removing the stat wire from the "R" connection within the furnace and then putting a jumper between R & W. If that does not start up it up , confirm that the furnace is getting 120V, the door switch is working, the inducer is getting 120V and that the board fuse is OK.

You're not getting any juice to the motor.

Could be in the connections to the board or the board it self.
Not likely but possible is also your new motor is bad.

As How stated, make sure blower door is on or at least the door switch is temporarily rigged to 'engaged' position to complete power circuit.

Explain why ID fan was replaced? What were symptoms?

I had to replace the inducer blower because 2 of the "blades" in that squirrel cage busted off, was a loud morning. It also damaged 2 more of the blades. I thought it would be best to replace.

CAREFULLY unhook from board power and supply power from an extension cord. Rig your jumper wires from female end to ID fan terminals and plug in extension cord last.

That will test the fan.
