Re: X13 ECM Blower Motor Replacement?


It has to physically fit - frame, shaft - they're pretty standard granted it's always good to check.

It has to be made to replace x13 and i believe the azure is.

Thanks!

It’s a bit disconcerting to a novice like myself, when both of the Evergreens appear to be the same, both described as “3/4 Horsepower , 208-230 VOLT , Universal X13 Replacement Motor”, yet one seller tells me it’s not compatible with my air handler and now one tells me it is, as well as SH dot com not being able to confirm the Azure compatibility. 🤦‍♂️

FWIW...

The OEM motor (see link in OP) lists the following:
Shaft Diameter: 1/2"
Shaft Length: 3 15/16"
NEMA Frame: 48
Speed: 4

Both Evergreens list:
5-5/8" Diameter (Don’t specify “shaft”).
1/2" Shaft
48 Frame
5 discreet speeds

The Azure lists:
48 Frame
A*: 4.93
B*: 6.66
C*: 1/2
4 speeds plus 625 RPM constant mode. [If none of the four speeds provides perfect airflow for the application or if duplicate speeds are desired on 2 or more taps, an optional hand held programmer (MARS No. 08502) can be used.]

*See attached photo for A, B & C.

That said, the Azure also cross-references Genteq 6207E, which I believe both of the Evergreens are.

Re: X13 ECM Blower Motor Replacement?


In one of your original pics, could FM18 mean frame size?
If you know that your motor works (tested by tech)?, why not save a boatload of extra worries and...
pull the board (2 long screws on end of your motor), check for burns especially thermister. If that's the issue, fix is $25 or less. If not apparent, replace the board. Match product id on Amazon or others.
Replacing whole motor with board is confusing you with aftermarket 'equals'.
Start by ripping down, which you have to do anyway?

Thanks!
I’m pretty confident the frame is “48”, as noted above.

At this point, I have confirmed from the sellers that all of the Evergreens I listed are compatible replacements, but I’ve been unable to confirm the Azure is.

After being tested by tech, he told me the motor does not work.

As for stripping down, my main concern is with the breaker off, what do I have to avoid touching, if anything, to not get an electrical shock?

Also, it appears I’ll need both hands to remove the assembly that holds the motor. That said, how do I protect the circuit board and it’s connections when pushing it to the side to remove assembly?
