It's possible. Depends on if there are oiler ports in the end bells of the motor.You can usually pull the side panel and look inside to determine.

Use 8-10 drops of a refined machine oil (3 in 1) in each port. Replace the plugs when finished.

Many motors are sealed, and you would need to tear the motor apart to lube. Don't know that I would worry about it if less than 10 years old.

How do I wire a induce fan motor


Induced fan motors on older units are wired through the high limit safety on the stack - in series. When the furnace calls for heat, the induced fan motor comes on and after a time the furnace will light.

Older units have a temp switch in the stack that rotates to bring on the burners and blower motor. . When there is a call for heat, the induced draft fan motor comes on and then the burners will light.

After the heat exchanger is warmed up the limit switch will bring the blower motor on. That's basically how it works - there are two circuits - one for the induced draft motor and the burners and the other for the blower and high limit.

New units have a plug on the board you just plug in.

I have a carrier furnace the control board keeps coming up with differ t led coxes ifiI reset it it works a couple times then flashes a new code had four different codes come up so far 21 22 31 34


Have to know the model and serial of the furnace.
locate code list usually inside or on the back of a door.
Operation sequence= call for heat--inducer blower motor--makes pressure switch--signals board to bring on hsi--after a set time gas valve opens and you have ignition--main blower motor comes on after a set time

you need to check to see if blower motor runs in ac mode, if not then the first thing you want to check is the capaciter for that motor. if capaciter is good, motor may be locked up, you can check the amps of the motor by putting an amp clamp around wires going to blower motor, all ratings should be listed on motor

Hello, if the inducer motor is bad then the furnace will not continue further and work, it could be that the bearings are shot on the inducer or it has failed electricly. Best thing to do here is replace the inducer motor.

Furnace will not ignite. Inducer motor and blower motor kick on at the same time. Safety switches have been checked. Circuit board and igniter assembly is good.


what brand furnace is it? is there any blinking light on the control board? is the tube going to the pressure switch blocked? there should be a tube going from the pressureswitch to the inducer motor housing take it loose from the inducer and check for obstruction there,dont blow back into the switch.

Inducer motor fan won come on


Check to see if theres power getting to the inducer motor, also check for loose or damaged wiring. If theres power the motor is bad. If not check the air flow switch, usually a disk shape with a silicone hose attached and two wires... take the hose from the furnace and blow into it and test to see if theres continuity, this switch is normally open and when you blow the switch closes. This is to make sure that the main blower is running so the combustion chamber doesnt burn up (and your house). Make sure your air filter is clean! If the switch is operational it could be the relay that controls the inducer motor, on newer models the relay is on the control board, check for error codes... try these things and if that doesnt work call your local furnace repairman!

If you can get to the shaft of the motor, oil it using electric motor oil. If the motor spins freely, you just may need to replace the start capacitor, however if it is binding; you will need to replace the inducer as an assembly.

Bryant furnance clicking, won't fire


try checking the pressure sensing switch,it has a tube that should run somewhere close to the inducer fan.sometimes this hose fills with liquids,and makes the units act funny.I don't know if you have a condensing unit or what.the furnace wont try to light if it cant tell the inducer motor is running.any induced draft unit will work this way.you can also do a temp. bypass of the pressure switch to make sure the contacts on it are closing just be sure your inducer fan is running,and you cant leave it like that its just a test.that is a safety feature you really need.

Motor run capacitor. If problem is intermittent, try wiggling wires from motor to capacitor to check for broken wires. Motor might seem to work ok with no load on bench but it has no real power. The power to really spin the motor under load comes from the capacitor
