Vibrating Inducer Motor


Hello, my furnace has started making a very loud hum/roar. It is extremly loud when in 2nd stage. I have narrowed it down to the inducer motor. When I put pressure on the housing the vibrating noise/roar goes away.

Do I need a new one or can this be adjusted?

Has anyone experienced this before?

Carrier Model #58CTA070-08

Thanks for all your help!

Those Carrier inducers are notorious for that problem. You need a new motor AND wheel and the wheel is VERY easy to bend/warp when installing so be gentle with it.

Thanks! Any suggestions where to buy on-line? A dealer quoted me but I am not sure if this is a DIY project or should be left to the pro's!

How much did they quote you? It is NOT a easy DIY project and Carrier does not easily sell their parts to DIYers. Not sure if you can buy them online. Sometimes you need to get 2 wheels B4 one of them is good and not off balance. The dealer will have to make it work and not vibrate.

$411.00, and I guess that does not include labour.

Thats not bad. If it includes labor it is GREAT. I can install one in about an hour plus 1/2 hr traveling charge. At least that way they have to make it quiet and guarantee it. Not likely you will get the parts yourself.

Make sure you clean the flame sensor every yr on that unit and get the tech to show you how. Glad to help.

Thanks, I get it serviced every year anyway so I would hope they do that.

how old is the furnace with the tax credit plus the price of repair might be time to look at a 95 % new furnace
