Check your breaker first and then the wiring. Check power coming from the timer next. With a load and resistance that you had, you could have tripped one of the breakers.Since you have bypassed the thermal fuse, it probably is the timer switch.

How to replace blower wheel on Friedrich SL28M30 AC unit


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you








    • 1



      Turn the electricity to the air conditioning unit off at the
      service disconnect box. Follow the wires from the AC unit to the
      disconnect box, usually located next to the unit. Open the disconnect
      box and, depending on the type, either pull the buss-bar or flip the
      disconnect switch.





    • 2



      Open the air handler\'s access panels with the correct size of nut driver, usually 5/16- or 1/4-inch. Save the screws.









    • Remove the control panel\'s cover, if equipped, with a nut
      driver. Some models have a flat metal cover over the electronic
      controls, and some control panels butt up to the unit\'s access cover.
      Save the screws and access cover.





    • 4



      Follow the wires from the blower motor. Two wires will go to
      a capacitor located on the blower\'s housing. The rest of the wires will
      go to the control panel.





    • 5



      Cut the wires leading into the control panel with wire cutters. Leave the cut wires connected inside of the control panel.





    • 6



      Remove the retaining bolts with either a nut driver, usually
      3/8-inch, or an adjustable wrench. The retaining bolts, found on the
      mounting brackets that the blower\'s housing slides on, keep the blower\'s
      housing locked into position. Save the bolts.





    • 7



      Slide the blower motor\'s housing out of the AC unit. The housing will slide straight out along the mounting brackets.





    • 8



      Disconnect the two wires going to the capacitor. They will pull straight off the capacitor\'s terminals.





    • 9



      Unscrew the squirrel cage\'s locking-screw with an adjustable
      wrench. The squirrel cage, the bladed wheel, connects to the blower
      motor\'s shaft inside of the housing. The locking screw holds the
      squirrel cage to the shaft.





    • 10



      Unscrew the blower motor\'s mounting screws with either a nut
      driver, usually 3/8-inch, or an adjustable wrench. These screws hold
      the motor to the housing and are found on the opposite side of the
      squirrel cage, the same side that the wires leave the motor.





    • 11



      Pull the motor from the housing. A drop of oil on the shaft
      will aid in removal. If the squirrel cage sticks to the shaft, then hold
      the shaft still with an adjustable wrench while spinning the squirrel
      cage on the shaft.





    • 12



      Slide the new blower motor into the housing. The blower motor\'s shaft will slide into the squirrel cage\'s hole.





    • 13



      Tighten the blower motor\'s mounting screws.





    • 14



      Spin the blower motor\'s shaft until the flat part of the
      shaft lines up with the squirrel cage\'s locking screw. Move the squirrel
      cage in or out until it does not touch the housing or the blower motor.
      Tighten the locking screw.





    • 15



      Connect the blower motor\'s capacitor wires, usually brown or
      brown with white stripes, to the capacitor. Direct replacement motors
      use the same color-coded wires as the original.





    • 16



      Slide the blower motor\'s housing into the AC unit along the mounting brackets. Install the mounting bracket\'s retaining bolts.





    • 17



      Connect the new blower motor\'s wires in the control panel
      one at a time. Disconnect one old wire in the control panel. Determine
      its color and connect the new wire, of the same color, to its place. Do
      this for all wires.





    • 18



      Replace the control panel\'s cover, if equipped, and the
      unit\'s access cover. Turn on the power to the unit at the disconnect box
      and test the blower motor.

Why does my ac freeze up


Hello, air conditioners will freeze either due to low airflow.....such as dirty filter, dirty evaporator coil, weak or not running blower motor. Also, a low refrigerant charge can cause the unit to freeze up.

Take a long time for blower motor to get up to speed


The first thing I would do is to clean motor and squirrel cage. It would be best if you would remove it and take it somewhere that you had a air compressor to blow out motor ports and fins on squirrel cage. Most of the time you can remove by disconnecting modular plugs and removing two or more screws on rail that squirrel cage slids on.
If you can get it out you can use a fine wire brush to loosen dirt and dust from fins on cage then use air to blow out as much as you can.
Your motor may be getting worn so check the bearing by grasping cage and see how much it will slide side to side and if it moves more then about1/8 inch then you are going to need to replace it before much longer. Also make sure that the rim of squirrel cage is not rubbing on blower housing and if it is then loosen motor mounting screws and adjust ,then retighten screws.
I hope this helps you. Thanks

What part makes a clicking noise on the blower


Most GM vehicles have little flaps or doors to redirect the air near the blower motor. If that gets out of place or falls down it will rub on the squirrel cage of the blower fan. Some older cars have insulation in that area that might come loose and rub on the squirrel cage. The insulation sometimes is covered with a stiff paper. Cutting away the stiff paper with allow more clearance.

I cleaned out squirrel cage that blows the air into the cab located passenger side behind glove compartment area. Since then no heat output, but there is A/C . What could have happened?


if all you did was drop the blower motor and clean the squirrel cage out,
the I would recheck for any vacume hose that might have got pulled off or broken that moves things like blend air door,are you getting air flow out from the motor to floor or defrost?

I want to clean the squirl cage fan on my Carrier handler. It's 12 years old and never really been cleaned. What is the best cleaning procedure to maximize its efficiency.


The best way to really clean the squirrel cage is to remove the entire indoor blower motor housing assembly out of the furnace then remove the squirrel cage from the motor shaft and pressure wash the squirrel cage. Make sure you don't use to much water pressure as you might knock off any balancing weights that may be attached to the one or more of the vanes. Make sure the cage is completely dry before you re-install it back on the motor shaft.

Clean Dryer Lint Vent in Kenmore elite HE4


If you wish to clean the interior cabinet of the dryer follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.

2. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You must remove the lint screen first in order to remove the blower fan housing.

3. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access, you can prop the front feet of the dryer up (a 2x4 works well).

4. Loosen the screws on the blower fan housing directly below the drum and remove. There's usually a small clip holding the cover in at the bottom that you may need to pull out to release. NOTE: You may also have to disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (yellow wires with white plug - use a small screwdriver to release the locking tabs) and/or ground wire to accommodate removal of the cover.

You should now have access to the dryer interior and the blower fan squirrel cage motor. Take the time to clean out the blower fan housing cover as well. A long bristle brush made for dryers works well at removing any lint inside the dryer in the hard to reach places, followed by vacuuming.

NOTE: After cleaning, you may experience a slight burning odor. This is normal as lint gets stirred up in the cleaning process and can settle on the heating components. The odor should dissipate after a short period of use.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My Asko dryer does not dry clothes. It shuts off


It is quite common for lint to cover the blower on these units, making it impossible for the dryer to move any air.

1)remove the lower panel. you will need a T20 driver for this and may need to tip the dryer slightly to the rear

2)remove the left part of the blower plenum. this is held by 3 plastic tabs and a T15 screw

You will now see the blower wheel, it is a squirrel cage type. Check for lint buildup, broken vanes, or string/thread wrapped around the shaft.

if there is no problem with the blower then there is another reason you are not moving air. let me know if this helps
