Blower motor Swap out?

Postby WAbrewer » Sat Nov 26, 2011 8:04 am

I have a Heil pushing 20 years old now.. I believe it is the original or at least an older blower motor in the Air Handler and it has now died... It is a 1/5HP 230v 1.6FLA Motor and they seem to be very hard and expensive to find.. Is there and adequate replacement that I can use?? a higher H/P, or would that require a capacitor swap as well?

Are you sure it's dead? Does it smell like burnt rubber? Did you replace the run capacitor with an identical replacement?

If you have to ask if you should replace a capacitor on a new r and r motor you need to call a pro.
