I have an older GE heat pump and when the ac kicks on it makes an awful noise. At first I thought it was the blower motor and the bearings were going. The motor was replaced about 2.5 years ago. Today I have a local company come out and after 10 minutes of being there they said it was a blower wheel. Now I had the furnace open a few times to take a look and it doesnt seem to hard to replace this part. They want $XXX to do this. and that is on top of the $XXX I just dropped for my 10 minute service call. Needless to say I am not too happy. My question is where can I find the part I need so I can take care of this my self?
I know I will need to drop the whole squirel cage and pull the motor and wheel to replace it. It looks like the cage is held in bye about 5 screws.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
