    I'd rather spend the money on a complete hvac and install myself then hire someone. That is why I posted on here for assistance. How about pointing me in the right direction so I can learn?
    Well if you really want help to DIY, here's what you are going to need. 1) Fluke true RMS Model 375, Cost $250-350, 2) 2 years tradesman schooling in electrical/HVAC repair, Cost $10,000 to $20,000, 3) Artisan Insurance Policy covering $1-$2 Million, Cost $1000, Grand Total to DIY (run the risk of fire, damage to property or life)Cost $21,350....... or you could hire a licensed HVAC contractor who could troubleshoot and repair/replace your problem for a FRACTION of that cost and and a fraction of time. Cheers.

    BTW the Professionals here on the forum LOVE helping people, It's what we do for a living. We even give valuable tips and free service call to our friends, but we cannot give help to the ignorant DIYer who might get them self killed, and their family tries to hold us accountable for their stupidity. For example: Your problem, fan motor is used on a gas furnace, it doesn't move enough air over the heat exchanger, causing it to crack prematurely, and because you have bypassed the CO detector because it was "making to much noise" your family never wakes up....... PLEASE hire a Professional.

    Ok, fair enough.

    The right approach is to number 1 know your limitations and number 2 once you know your limitations hire a professional. You have proven that this task exceeded your ability to do it correctly.

    Learn from it.

    And no, there is not enough skillset crossover from IT to HVAC.
