That information is usually on the data plate on the furnace and on the motor itself. All you need to know now is the HP. Other than that a universal consolidator motor is an easy fix too. It can handle 1/6-1/3HP.

I have a 1 horsepower variable speed blower motor for a Ruud furnace with plug-in power source and plug-in low voltage signal input plugs. I can't find the capacitor and want to know if I can direct-wire...

No you cant. You have a module motor so there is no capacitor. If the motor is new it may not be programmed. If it is a old motor replace it.

Rheem classic 80 fan motor on furnace hums will not turn on

Have you checked the capacitor? Try spinning the blower wheel by hand, if this gets the motor going you have a bad capacitor. If not, the motor will need to be replaced.

My furnace heats up and then shuts down not kicking on blower

Your furnace is shutting off on the high limit switch because of this. You are having a problem with the blower motor. You need to check for power from the wires on the board that feeds the motor. If you have voltage, and your run capacitor is good, you have a faulty blower motor. If its a fan relay, the fan would start and run all of the time. Check power to motor right after furnace shuts the burners off.

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.

Last week my furnace went out. My landlord called a furnace technican and he said that the limit switch was fried. So he replaced the limit switch and did a tune up of the furnace. It took 2 days for the...

Hello, a limit switch will open when the furnace overheats due to restricted airflow, check the blower wheel make sure it is clean and also make sure the blower motor is running at good speed and not dragging. Sometimes a weak capacitor can slow down a blower motor to the point that the limit switch will open. Not sure what kinda tune up the tech did but you dont replace a limit switch untill the cause of the limit switch opening is found.

Furnace blower motor vibration

Check for a loose set screw on the motor shaft for the blower wheel.
Check the blower wheel for a missing balance weight.
Check the blower wheel for a dust buildup in the blades.
Check the blower wheel for a broken fin blade.
Check the blower motor shaft for excessive play.(more than 1/4 inch of play).
Check mounting screws on the blower housing.

Need original blower motor and cap. specs for Ruud Deluxe 90+

The motor specs can change from time to time depending on what the manufacturer has in mind.

If it has locked up check first and make sure the squirrel cage fan has not moved and is binding on the housing.

If it is clear to turn and wont turn,, the bearings must be bad, and this is probably NOT a problem with the motor being "wrong". Its just the way things are made.

Contact a RUUD distributor for the specs you request.

Not enough air flow coming from the vents on the second floor.

If you feel like increasing your blower motor speed you can do this. Go to the air handler take the cover off to expose the blower motor. You will see a circuit board that has the blower motor wires going to it. Using your flash light look at the board and locate the terminals that read Cool Heat Park ... Now the Cool terminal should have black colored wire going to that one. Now locate the Heat terminal if it has red going to it and maybe blue sitting on the park terminal then swap the two around, blue is like med speed on the blower. Where Red is low speed. This will increase the blower about 50 rpms. You can even read your blower motor and get the speeds more detailed. You have a big house your unit is I bet a 4 ton A/C and 125,000 btu furnace. Probably has 1600 rpm motor. This is one solution. You have a up flow model and when you open the furnace cabinet up you will be able to see the specs. on the furnace. Let me know how that goes ken here in Kansas
