    Changing motor speed on Genteq X13 motor

    I have a 2011 Genteq ECM motor (X13 FM13) that came from a salvage home unit. It works perfectly but had only one speed tap setup/programmed.
    Is it possible to reprogram the control unit on the motor to provide for more speeds?Name:  IMG_3929.jpg

    Simple answer is, no. Complicated answer is to locate a distributor willing to reprogram the module that closely resembles a model with characteristics you desire which is almost an impossibility due to licensing. There is no one I know outside of Genteq Beloit themselves that has custom programmers.

    Moved to AOP, this is the section for Homeowners to ask questions.

    Unfortunately, this is a DIY question, and we do not support DIY here.

    Perhaps there's something else we can help you with.

    This has nothing to do with the motor itself "can't get into what 1-5 do" this has to do with the air handler, and the way it was designed. Also, these are not speed taps, they are torque taps.
