    American standard rtu induced won't shut off??

    American standard rtu md# Ycd151c4habb the inducer stays on and won't shut off. No error codes and when I run the rtu through its test modes everything comes on fine. Even when not calling for heat it still running.

    Anyone ever just change the fasco motor and not the whole inducer assembly. The whole assembly is pretty pricy.

    inducer

    before you just replace inducer assembly you should check the burner screen behind the assembly because when they run 24-7 they tend to pack dust and dirt on the screen thus causing ignition problems

    I will preface this with - I have never changed an inducer motor on this particular unit.

    But on other package unit that I have replaced the inducer motor - the labor involved in trying to separate the motor from the wheel ends up being equal to or more than the price of the entire unit.

    I've never had a wheel that just pops off the motor shaft for easy replacement.

    I agree the whole assembly is pricey, but not worth the trouble trying to separate them.

    Inducers do cause a similar problem when they short, but also make sure it does not have a separate relay (#1) on a voyager, to bring on the inducer. I recently had one stick on me.

    What a pos, but go figure, Trane just keeps on using the same setup. You can get the same Fasco assembly from Johnstone minus the red gasket for considerably less money.
