    lennox pulse furnace

    Anyone ever replace the 3/4 hp blower in the g/14q.Lennox say`s I have to buy there's it`s heavy duty and any other 3/4 hp motor will fail fast.Well the motor they sell is close to 350.00 and they don`t have one here close.It`s fricking cold out here in Ann Arbor.My normal supply house has a 3/4 hp motor and cap for under 200.00 that will fit lennox mounting bracket.

    Pressure tested the heat exchanger yet? No sense sticking a motor in if the heat exchanger fails inspection.

    The wire designations should be listed on the tag on the motor body. What is the motor part number?

    Yellow is usually common if no white.

    Replacement motor will probably fail soon. I'd do OEM only.

    BTW, did the furnace pass the pressure test?
    Beware of advice given by some guy on the Internet.

    I saw one that was wired up wrong and cooked the fan coil board on a carrier Air handler.

    AO Smith has some Blower Motors that have a yellow wire as common

    Also they sometimes use purple and of course white

    I have seen the statement "... yellow/white for common..."
    But as stated, there should be a reference on the motor itself!!
