    Update: I removed the set screw from the cage/shaft, repositioned the cage slightly, tightened it back up and now the noise is gone.

    Thought you'd appreciate an update - the technician diagnosed the blower motor had failed. It has ... uh ... one of the windings grounded out. Basically, it is shorting out. In addition, it spins...
