Tempstar draft inducer motor noise

We installed a 90% efficient Tempstar furnace in 2004. The draft inducer motor (our installer calls it a venter motor) started making a "growling" noise when it started. This noise carried on until the main blower kicked in and then it stopped. We have had the "smart valve" changed once and this is the 4th inducer motor. I believe the installer is as stumped as I am. What could be the problem? The last motor only lasted one day before it started making noise.

    We had our inducer replaced as well, and it was "growling" within a year. It turned out to be the bearings in the motor; they had gone bad. It was a Fasco motor. It required that we purchase a new one.

    I have the same problem. Bad bearing. Seems to be common in these motors.
    You have to replace the motor.

    Same inducer motor noise with my furnace. The inducer motor has been replaced last year and new one is now making the same noises.

SOURCE: heil 75kbtu gas furnace 80% efficiency installed

if it has a pilot, you can follow the pilot tube from the gas valve back to the burner assembly and find it. It may not have one and if this is the case, the air flow switch is supposed to close when the inducer fan comes on . If the flue is clogged, condensation in the bottom of inducer fan(would hear cracking). then after the draft safety switch is closed,the gas vavle will get 24 volts and allow the gas valve to open

Goodman furnace burner ignites then shuts off in about 10 seconds


if you have replaced the flame sensor and it will not stay lit, the draft safety switch may be opening. It works on positive and negative pressure created by the inducer fan motor.You may have a restriction in your heat exchanger or if is a high efficiency furnace, it may not have the drain tube installed properly with a trap. The trap works just like the trap under your sink and if water isnt in the trap, the pressures can be effected enough to open the draft switch(some call it an air pressure switch)

The fan motor went out and the furnace is not even 5 years old.


I have an Amana High Efficiency furnace that I purchased 5 years ago this past October (2009). My furnace started making a horrible noise last night and then stopped working. The repair person, told me my draft inducer motor needed replaced, and showed me where the plastic fan blade inside of the inducer was "chewed up." Of course my first question is, "How can a 5 year old furnace need such a costly repair already?" The only answer I received is that it will cost me close to $500.00 to have the situation remedied (service call, parts, labor). I started looking around on the internet today, and discovered that high efficiency furnace inducer motors are usually encased in plastic and the motor fan blades are made of plastic rather than metal like the lower efficiency models. Turns out that these plastic blades over time can't withstand the high heat generated and in time (they estimate 3-4 years) break. The damage to the blades causes an imbalance in the way they spin, which in turn, generates the resulting problem of a damaged draft inducer motor. Appears this is a design flaw. Yeah! I'll say. I spent $3100.00 for a brand new furnace and 5 years later I'm paying another $500.00 and apparently can look forward to doing the same in 3-5 more years! Maybe this answers in part your question?

Goodman: My Power Venter (aka Heat and Draft Inducer) won't start


The power ventor most likely needs to be replaced. But be advised. Goodman normally will not sell parts to anyone but a certified technician. I had to show my masters certificate to buy parts from their outlet. This is a part that has a high rate of failure.

Janitrol/Goodman GMP075-3 Draft Inducer Fan Won't come on


most forced draft fans are powered by 120 volts . close to the fan is usually a plug that unsnaps. create a call for heat after turning off to clear safetys and see if your getting 120 to fan on initial call for heat. if you are then fan draft motor is bad, usually sold as an entire assembly replace exact as it came out. sequence of operation is..... stat calls for heat via common and white wire to furnace , 24 volts. ......board sences call and sends 120 volts to forced draft ........ motor runs and creates pressure on proofing switch,....... switch closes 24 to board and tells it draft fan is on......... board then energizes ignitor,....... after ignitior glows gas valve is opened and burner lights ........ either ignitor or seperate sensor rod tells board the burner lit........ and a few minutes later the fan comes on and hot air is blown out. if a step is missed or doesn't proof the furnace either trys up to three times to light or locks out. turning off power usually resets safetys and it will resume attempts to lite normally.
