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.

Instead of spraying vinegar, i would say spray wd-40 spray.That will keep the fan and its internal assembly clean and not let the fan movement get tight and rusted.It will not allow the parts to get tight and rusted.-------- But once you spray wd-40, you have to let it remain there for 30 minutes to 1 hour, then turn the unit on .The wd-40 spray takes time to show its effect.--------- The wd-40 spray is easily available at local walmart and homedepot stores or at appliance parts repairs store.---------- This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

No. This can be caused my a dirty squirrel cage on the blower motor which is found in your air handler in the attic. Probably needs to be pulled out and cleaned. This noise is caused by the blower wheel out of blanace.

Bought used - want to prevent rusting of water trough and other


If you can get to the whole water trough to coat it, I recommend you get some spray undercoating or a product like "Phil Swift" promotes on TV and spray it on the affected area.

Whwn i turn the heat all the way up loud clicking noise if turned lower noise stops what could this be notfan


I think your talking about the heater fan? If you hear more noise as you increase the blower speed, there is something in the squirl cage or a problem with the blower motor itself. Leaves, paper or something lite on the pass side floor, it will get sucked into the recirculation duct,causing a noise.Remove the blower motor and clean out any debris, and inspect the squirl cage and turn the motor by hand to see if you hear any noise

Pull the refrig out from the wall , and remove the rear panel . Touch the compressor and feel if its hot or running . If the compressor is cool , then the main control board is bad ( since the compressor isn't running ) . If you can solder , you can repair the board (another paragraph ) . If the compressor is warm , then you could have a thermistor or 2 bad . This would have to be checked by a technician , unless you know how to get into the diagnostics procedure . Also , see if the compressor cooling fan is working and the black squirl cage is clean of dust .

Noice level high. Vibrating noice


Hi there. Clean both fans if dirty. (inside and outside) Check for foreign objects like insulation caught in the squirl cage blower. Make sure unit is level. Check for vibrating tubes.
Thanks

Carrier 58GS150-CB ignites but fan will not blow (Loud Buzzing)


The loud buzzing soud i found to be the fan blower motor. I removed the fan bracket assembly and sprayed a little WD-40 on the set screws and protruding shaft so that sqirrel cages could be removed. (Also marked position of set screws on shaft) once squirrel cages were removed I removed 4 motor mounting bolts. Cleaned sqirrel cages and housings with industrial strenghth rim cleaner to remove solid dirt and will replace motor and capacitor.
BTW thanks for nothing
