Inducer installation / modification ...


Hi caseywa

The biggest difference I would say, has to be the motor torque. What relevence it has to the situation could be minimal. The one you have now is a capacitor run motor, these motors are slightly higher in torque than a shaded pole motor. You could be talking about as little as a couple of inch pounds, but the engineer designed it with this in mind. Like I said I can't tell you the exact difference. You may be able to go to the Fasco sight and compare the engeneering data. I am not sure if that is available though. I hope I didn't confuse you.

Good luck
Rusty

You didnt....the motor rpm and fans are the same. Pulled the old apart and the new. The A142 is on the furnace now and running fine. More details later, having big storm and the power is about to go out here.

Caseywa,
I found your old post as I was looking for the exact same blower motor today.
Could you tell me how it has been working for you?
I followed with interest the idea you put forward about installing your own drain plug at the bottom and would like to know how that panned out.
Thanks.

The blower has been working great for what looks about four years now. And the drain plug is working perfectly. I found the blower online... I am not sure if I mentioned where I ordered the blower from in my post or not, let me know if you need and I will hunt around from where I got it. I kept the old blower in case I needed parts or got around to repairing it for a back up.

Casey

Hi and thanks for responding so quickly.
If you have any information on where you got it that would help my search immensely. Don't mean to put you to any trouble but I keep running into brick walls with my search.

Thanks again!

Hi Caseywa,
I just noticed you replied to me and I neglected to say thanks.
I looked at supplystuf.com and it was an ebay site and I tried emailing ken@supplustuf.com and got a bounce back on the email. Could you shed any light on this dilemma? If not, no problem but I would appreciate any further help you could give.

Thanks

You got the email wrong, it should be: ken@supplystuff.com

...and try searching the web for: supplystuf.com

...it is an ebay site.

Thanks for all your help. Having had the service tech tell me I needed a new motor because the bearings were shot I embarked on this search process.
Well, I tore into the inducer one last time yesterday and this time, by pure chance, discovered that behind the squirrel cage fan were some tiny objects. While bending the squirrel cage to create a 2-3 mm opening I was able to pull out 3 tiny pebbles; maybe the size of BBs. I have no idea how they got there as we are in a finished basement. Anyhow, these pebbles were grinding and jamming the fan to a stop, but now that they are gone, the motor is working like a top.
This is one of those rare stories of money saved during a house maintenance project, and I thought I would pass it along.
Thanks again for the help you gave and the time you spent giving it.

I am just an everyday homeowner like yourself, great to hear about the happy ending...

Hi Carrierman, I also have a Fasco inducer blower that wasn't working because three of the fan blades inside the unit broke off and got stuck. We took the inducer out and clean the fan and put in back. The motor seems to be working fine but there's no heat. Some how the burner is not litting up. Any ideas what may be causing it? Thanks for your reply. I checked the gas lines and it were on.
