Weathermaker 8000 58wav: part needed


I need to replace the part below. It spins like it should right before and during heating cycle; however, it wobbles and makes a lot of noise. What do I need and what would it cost to replace this part? It seems like a plastic wheel held onto a spindle with a retaining clamp.

Get the venter assy.If the blade is wobbling then there is a better than 50% chance the shaft is loose also.
Replacing the assy is also easier to do then replacing parts of the assy.

take the spring clip off ( squash it carefully and then restraighten later) and then smear red high temp rtv silicone on the shaft and then put the wheel and clip back on and let it cure for 2 hrs. the plastic in the wheel wears and some were loose from Day 1. silicone at auto parts store.

The shaft seems fine. It's the retaining nut thingy that makes the wheel "wobble." It spins and spins but makes a lot of noise. I took off the nut thingy and tried to straighten it but the noise is still there.

that thingy is a cheap piece of sheet idea. silicone it on. I had to do that with brand new ones, unless you want to spend several hundred $$ on a new motor and wheel. those units spin at over 3000 rpm and wear and buying used is not what I would do.

other than that it is a pretty good furnace.

Do you think Home Depot or a parts store would have the nut thingy? Mine is bent and warped.

its possible but somewhat unlikely. trust me some silicone on the shaft and thingy and you will be fine. Y make it more complicated than necessary? ever hear of MacGyver or RedGreen?

True. MacGyver used to make exposives out of Coca-cola bottles and strawberry Hubba-bubba gum.

Any old silicone or another?

high temp ONLY as the shaft gets very hot from the heat of the smoke transfered to it by conduction. auto parts stores may have it for exhaust manifolds etc, permatex brand?

When I put the silicone onto the nut thingy, should I also put some on the wheel? How far fro the back of the shaft should all of this go? the wheels spins and I see evidence that it is rubbing on the back and this is likely causing me noise.

the shaft usually has a flat spot and the wheel has a matching notch. just put a thin layer on the shaft and slide the wheel onto it. U will see it start to ooze forward. then put a dab on the thingy and shove it on. the wheel should stop where the notch ends otherwise if it is really worn then U have to decide on a spot so it does not rub. if it is still loose remove it and add more silicone.
