Ruud 90 deluxe plus, in the last week blower motor noiser

10 yrs ago replaced heat exchanger and burners, changed filter at least every 90 days, more in the winter months in the last week motor ( I'm assuming the blower motor) has gotten louder. Sounds similar to looping diesel motor. I'm thinking the motor is going bad, I've tried to find diagrams of my furnace but have not been successful. 1st question, Does this sound like blower motor starting to fail? 2nd, How hard is this to swap out? 3rd, Where do I get motor?
Thanks for your help,
George

George, make sure the belt is not loose flapping around making all that noise.

Not hard to change if you can get one from an hvac friend, they won"t sell to homeowners normally.

Furnace blower blows cold air


It is possible that you did not set the new blower on the proper speed. Black wire is high. Blue is medium. Red is low. If the fan is operating to slow it can run to hot and trip the high limit control. Make sure the filters are clean. When the old motor went bad, the problem might not have been discovered rite away your high limit control might need to be changed.
Also anytime you work on a furnace you can kick up some dust. Always clean the flame sensor.
Good Luck

Honeywell HE260 housing melted/deformed


Humidifiers are made from a very durable heat resistant plastic. If it melted or warped you have a serious overheating problem. That plenum should not get over 140 to 155 degrees. If this furnace is running to hot it could stress and crack your heat exchanger. Install a good carbon monoxide detector in your home!!!! Check your filters. Check your airflow. Make sure all registers in the house are open. Is your blower speed set high enough? If this furnace is operating to hot it is definitely worth the investment to have a pro look at it before you replace the humidifier.
Is this overheating problem new? Or was this something thar happened years ago and may have since been solved But you are just now noticing the heat damege that was caused.

Commonly outdoor wood boilers use a hot water coil mounted in the ductwork above your furnace. In this application the Ruud furnace is still using its blower assembly to circulate the warm air from the boiler to your home. If this is the case. Have your heating guy install a #50 relay on the furnaces blower motor to activate your much needed humidifier. If this is not the case and your Ruud furnace is totally independent of the boiler. Still install the #50 relay in the furnace and manualy activate the fan only feature on your thermostat.
Good luck

Odor


First, clean or replace the filter. Next, mix a very weak solution (40:1 ratio) of bleach and water to fill the unit. the bleach will kill any bacteria that could be causing the odor, but NOT harm anyone, The filter will take care of any hard water issues. Just don't make the mistake of thinking "If a weak solution is good, a strong one is better". NOT TRUE. Stay with the 40:1 mix unless you like breathing bleach. (Yuk) Note: It may take a couple of days for the odor to go away.

Those filters don't last forever! Whenever I had that problem, I just replaced the filter. (The fresh filters also contain some kind of anti-bacterial or anti-fungal, since you're not supposed to add anything to the water which would spray into the air.) My problem has been finding new filters--does Sears still carry them? (The small one I was in recently does NOT.)
