I need a new squirrel cage blower for my 1970's Singer GB-2100 furnace. Where can I go? How do I find a generic one that will "fit" ?

If the blower is made of plastic it does not have a set screw. You most likely need a new squirrel cage. They are formed to the shaft and have a compression ring that holds them in place.

SOURCE: Air conditioner/furnace squirrel cage fan remains running when th

probably the fan switch stuck on the fan combination control or improperly adjusted. Turn power off, remove red wire on the relay from the fan motor. Isolate so no short will happen and turn power on.The motor should not run. The fan relay could stick also. You will have to use a volt meter and see if there is voltage on the coil terminals on the fan relay. Put 1 lead to ground and touch only the terminal for the coil on the relay with the other meter lead.It should not have 120volts. If it does it is not the fan relay but possibly a limit sending power to the relay. Try that first thank you J

Follow your schematic on the new unit. It will tell you where the wire goes. Some of the "extra" wires are connected to the main board close to where the "used" wires are and they are labled "spare". Find the blower motor on the schematic and trace out where this wire will go.

SOURCE: My squirel cage blower motor fails to start

Sounds like the start winding is shot. If the cap is good as well as the run winding but it will not start on its own, either the start winding or starting switch. In any event the cheaper thing would probably be to replace the motor. You could take the mottor to a motor shop and ask them if a repair would be possible or cheaper.

SOURCE: furnace is a Rudd UGEB

Sounds like the fan limit was not replaced correctly. You can try switching the blower to the On position (instead of Auto), if the furnace runs properly with the blower on that would be the most likely culprit.

This blower motor lost some blades some how threw it all out of wack (wobbly) so much it hitting casing. Motor works. Would I need to replace everything or just the blade wheel ? It is an older amana air...


you may have to replace the blower because the squirrel cage is out of balance due to the loss of blades.
and may have damaged the bearings/bushings
if you can get just the squirrel cage that great

I have a New air 1400H and the blower fan has broke, can you tell me where to find replacement parts for this unit? I understand it has been discontinued for almost 5 years. Thanks for your help.Cont


You may have to remove the complete blower assembly, remove any dead squirrels, and take it around to various appliance parts suppliers to obtain a suitable replacement. You may need only a replacement motor if the squirrel cage is intact

Ac squirrel cage fan motor noise


Could be bearings going out, or a squirrel cage rubbing the blower housing, a squirrel cage blade that came loose, or a capacitor.

Furnace is a Rudd UGEB model. Burners ignite and but the blower (squirrel cage) doesn't start. After a couple minutes they turn off and the blower starts and runs for less than a minute and shuts off....

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

It's a brand new unit but it blows air so hard and makes so much noise. Can the flow the adjusted down?


is the fan outside too noisy,if so there is no way to change the speed of this fan,the blower motor in the furnace can be adjusted,either by adjusting the centrifugal pulley on the motor shaft or electrically or installing a different squirrel cage fan on the furnace blower
