    Is the driven pulley on the blower healthy? It may be the angle of the shot but it looks like there's no channel for the belt to ride in, like the inner wall has been warn off???
    If YOU want change, YOU have to first change.

    If you are waiting for the 'other guy' to change first, just remember, you're the 'other guy's' other guy. To continue to expect real change when you keep acting the same way as always, is folly. Won't happen. Real change will only happen when a majority of the people change the way they vote!

    Pulley is same diameter as the motor itself! And look at the diameter of the shaft hole. That pulley was taken from a much larger motor.

    Those take OEM motors. It's a 56 Frame ridgid mount but the shell and stator are backwards. So far, you can only get them from Carrier. They also have an internal overload with external wiring for the control circuit. Our cost is about $320.00 for a 3/4 HP 230V 3PH.

    Wrong replacement motor. Shaft is too short.

    another PITA carrier. I hate the "overload" circuit breaker in those. You have to get the pulley adjustment just right or else you overamp and trip that stupid breaker.

    Par for the course. Those control companies send their own people and I swear they couldn't give a crap about how it looks or how reliable it will be in the long run. Up and running right now is all they care about.
