Trane Blower Wheel Replacement Part


So my A/C went out last night, always fun in Florida when that happens.

Anyways, after taking apart the blower I figured out that the blower wheel was the cause. It looks like the actual "wheel" somehow disconnected from the fins/turbine and as a result the motor just sat there spinning but nothing would work because the turbine itself broke off.

I'm looking to replace the blower wheel myself as I am very limited on funds. I contacted a local Trane store here and they said I have to get an HVAC contractor to purchase it for me.

So being the person I am, I went looking online to see what I could find to match it.

Air handler is a Trane twg048a140b1

Blower wheel is a 10" x 10" with 1/2" shaft, clockwise rotation.

Couldn't find anything exact for Trane online but I did find this one that looks like it should work:

Is there anything else specific I should be looking into regarding the replacement of this blower wheel? Do specific manufacturers have specific fin counts or anything else I need to be aware of?

Thanks for the help guys, just trying to get my A/C back running without missing a mortgage payment to replace the entire thing.

Thanks!

Trane Blower Wheel Replacement Part


Ended up finding a supply house that sells to the public, just ordered the part through them.

For anybody else who may be looking for this part yourselves, you will also need to make sure whether the wheel is concave or convex. This is the inside part that connectors to the motor shaft. This will make a difference, so make sure you get the right one
