Payne furnace needs new fan


Payne furnace needs new fan-007.jpgHi, I'm trying to remove the wheel from my Payne furnace, it does not spin. I removed 3 hex screws (2 on top, 1 on bottom) and the piece with the wheel will not come off. I do not want to damage anything by forcing it off. Am I missing a screw somewhere? The man from the Gas Company came out and I thought he pointed to the screw on the wheel when he told me the reason my heater wasn't working, but it doesn't seem likely to me that the screw would be what's holding it on. Plus, I did try to remove that screw, but it's not a regular hex screw, it only has one flat side and I couldn't find anything that would take it off.

Model #480BAV048091APJA
Serial #0397A05488

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I read in another thread that the flame sensor needs to be cleaned once a year. If somebody would be so kind to let me know where and how to do it, I would be quite grateful.

The whole assembly comes off. The wheel is connected to a motor shaft.

Thank you, Hvaclover. What I'm wondering is, after taking out the 3 hex screws, are there any other screws? It is stuck and I'm afraid to force it off.

Don't force it.
there are hex head screws around the motor housing. Probably 5/16" nut driver size.
