People,

Handler shakes a bit and squeaks loudly. Its about 15+ years old. Would you suspect the squirrel cage lost a balance clip and the cage is now off balance/rattling/squeaking as a result?

If so, how difficult is it to remove the cage component and replace? Also, if the balance clip fell off, shouldnt it be somewhere sitting inside that area ? I mean, where could it go, right? Once I find it, shouldnt there be a mark/scratch/blemish on the cage where one could clip it back on to fix?

Thanks

99% of the time, the belt won't be visible without taking the blower door off. It will shut off due to the door switch. This is normal. Before touching the belt or blower wheel, turn the AH off at the disconnect/breaker.

Cheers!
