I figure the only thing that could go wrong with them are typical motor problems (bets, bearings, windings, electrical connections). Am I correct? Is there anything else that can go wrong with them? Are there any special tools needed to work on them?

    Dampers are fire supression.
    AHJ and the fire alarm guys around here say dampers are HVAC. I replaced a bunch of popped fuse links this summer.

    Thanks. I asked because I bought a house near Tarpon Springs and as there are So many HVACR people on this site - it always seems to me that there must be someone at least Somewhere nearby.

    I am kind of curious about what is required to legally setup to do some work in Florida too. What it takes / what is required? Licensing, etc.

    So I guess I may as well ask you:

    If I wanted to legally work in this business in Florida - what is required? What do I have to do? How might I go about doing it?

    Any advice?
