Question about Ruud UBHC Air Conditioner

1 Answer

When my furnace goes to start the blower motor whines or sounds like it is having a hard time starting up? If you turn the blower wheel it seems to turn freely? Could it need a motor or a run capacitor? How can you tell which one? It is a UGDG-10EBR JR 100,000 BTU

Motor is getting old. The start side of the motor is getting weak. I would replace the motor and when you do the capacitor is a good idea to change also. ken

Blower motor hums, but does not turn on


Try spinning the blower wheel by hand to see if it starts, if it does a new run capcitor will be needed. If not a new motor will be needed.

I have a carrier furnace and when my main blower starts up there is a short vibration just when the blower starts though and it doesn't seem to be getting any worse. the flame fires up ok and there doesn't...


I would remove both burner and blower compartment covers and reach into the blower housing and grip the center section of blower where it mounts to motor shaft. Try sliding the squirrel cage back and forth horzontally. If it slids much more than 1/8 inch then the motor bearing are probably just getting worn and allowing the motor tomake some extra noise when motor starts. If it has oil ports I would remove plugs and use 3-4 drops of machine oil and clean blower with brush and shop vac.
Other then that I don't think I'd worry much about it yet. Thank you and hope that helps.

The bearings are bad. You need to replace the motor. Motor cost $75 to $125. Labor is on avg. $150 to $400 with an decent A/C Company . You can try to oil it but its not recommend by Lennox. That furnace at the time they build it was top of the line. Good Luck.

Coleman forced air furnace blower


Rmove the two screws holding the blower in place and slide it out. With the power off, rotate the wheel and inspect for debris or an impingement. If everything turns easy, you have a bad motor or start capacitor. If you have rubbing, adjust the wheel. If the motor will not turn, replace it.
