Where can I get a replacement left fan bearing (Looking from the front)

What you are describing is one of the three resiliant rubber mounting pads and not a bearing. They are rubber to minimize vibration and the subsequent harmonic noise that would be generated had they been made of metal. Go to a local HVAC contractor and ask if you can peruse their discarded furnaces tossed out back for a replacement rubber. They, though not identical, all should be adaptable to fit your needs.

You say your fan won't rotate on 'low' the assumption is that the worn rubber is letting the fan blade gently rest on the side of the blower housing. But then the assumption is that the fan is capable of starting on a higher speed due to the increase hp rating of high speed. If that's the case, there should be a loud scraping, rattling noise coming from the blower during operation. If this is not the case, maybe consider trying to find the oil holes in the motor when you have the blower assembly out to repair the rubber. The motor may be 'oilable' or 'permanently lubricated' as evidenced by the appearance of two plugs near the top of the motor on the end bells....or not. The plugs will be usually yellow plastic or gray aluminum plugs and are removed with needle nose pliers.

I'm thinking you may have dry bearings within the motor itself. They are a permeable bronze bearing that rests in a 'wick' of felt saturated by lightweight oil. The oil literally permeates the bronze to maintain lubrication on the metal shaft as it rotates inside the bronze. When dry, sometimes the low starting torque of the PSC motor utilized in furnaces cannot start on low but will start on high. Then they fail altogether if the dry bearings are not lubricated.

Atwood 1522 LP furnace fan operates at one speed only

Furnace only works at one speed, high and low fan is usually used for AC. It never has had 2 speeds on furnace correct? Furnaces usually only have 1 speed, except for some home models.

Loud blower on my Coleman Furnace

Usually a noisy blower motor is a bad bearing. The motors now have oil impregnated bearings and you can't oil them, you have to replace them.

The furnace send signal to the fan in about 30 seconds, now this fan is set in auto from my termostat, my problem is the fan is starting slowly and some time it don't start, but if I use the option manual...

Depending on the model of the furnace, the blower is either a 2 or 3 speed. When the furnace operates in heating mode with the thermostat in the auto position, the furnace starts the fan when the furnace reaches a specific temperature or after a set time delay, but it operates the fan in low or med low speed on heat mode, when you put the thermostat fan switch in the "ON" position, the furnace operates the fan in "HI" speed, the same speed used for cooling mode. You may have a blower moter that is starting to short. I would recommend having a professional replace the motor before now before it becomes an emergency in the middle of the night during a cold spell.

Loud fan


I have a gforce 9600gt oc addition and that fan is loud beyound your wildest expectation, but although there is lots of utillities you can install to reduce fan speed thus reducing the noise, but can cause permanent harm to your system(it will most probably overheat). You can try blowing all the dust of the fan using compressed air to reduce the rolling resistance of the fan. You can find a fan speed utillity with the name of LG X110 fan utility from google, developed by msi, but i wount recomend it. Hope this can help you, please rate this

Best regards

I have replaced the blower motor in my furnace and it is not blowing enough to heat the house. The fan is running but not enough to heat. The vents are warm but there is minimal air output.

First off as silly as this may seem check the filter! A furnace usually has several speeds to the blower. Heat speed is factory set at low! I would also check to see if the squirrel cage has a lot of dirt in it, this could reduce airflow. Make sure you dont have boxes, couches, etc. blocking the return air vents. If you replaced the blower motor, Be darn certain it runs at the same rpm and horse power as the OEM motor did. Furnaces run on CFM or Cubic Feet Per Minute. If you run too much cfm your temp rise across the heat exchanger will be too great causing a low supply air temp! If too little cfm than your furnace may overheat causing it to trop on a high limit switch! There culd be any amount of problems with oyur system, call a certified tech to give it a once over it will save you a headache which is usually cheaper than the bill!

Replacing the fan or fans in a dell 4600 with the quietest fan I

First you need to tell us which fans are the loud ones you are talking about but normally it is the cpu fan. Any computer parts store should have various fans available for different chipsets.
This link will take you to a page to find a fan. You will probably have to get the model number off your current one to find an exact match
