Open Question

Replacing squirrel cage blower

Due to our location, Soleus will not honor warranty on my split system a/c, KFR-1200. They have sent me a replacement squirrel cage for the air handler. (Original cage was damaged by loose piece of metal.) Can anyone advise me how to get the squirrel cage out and the new one in? Thanks.

All of the kfr series have a indoor coil sensor that monitors the tube temperature. In the heating mode it will sense for high temp and cut off the outdoor fan to try to lower the indoor coil temp. The cut off temp is 129f, when the coil cools down the fan will cut in and start developing heat again. If the coil continues to get warmer it will shut off completely. The system is either overcharged or the coils and or filters are dirty. All Soleus units need both lines insulated seperately and not together because the metering device is in the outdoor unit. Have your tech calibrate the charge and make sure you clean your filters every 3 months. Removing the sensor will cause the indoor coil to get too hot and possibley start to melt your housing. For further technical questions pleas call 626-378-1518 for technical questions,,professionals only.

you may have to replace the blower because the squirrel cage is out of balance due to the loss of blades.
and may have damaged the bearings/bushings
if you can get just the squirrel cage that great

I have a New air 1400H and the blower fan has broke, can you tell me where to find replacement parts for this unit? I understand it has been discontinued for almost 5 years. Thanks for your help.Cont

You may have to remove the complete blower assembly, remove any dead squirrels, and take it around to various appliance parts suppliers to obtain a suitable replacement. You may need only a replacement motor if the squirrel cage is intact

My unit turns on and blows for a minute, then stops blowing.

you need to call a service man. Your transformer, blower motor or wiring is probably melting.
