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.

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

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.

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.

My fan won't blow hot or cold air unless i'm driving fast on the interstate


Sounds like your heater blower motor is not functioning properly. At high speeds it's probably drawing air in from the outside then through the vents (defrost, etc.). If blower motor sounds like it's running, then maybe the squirrel cage (heater fan blade) is not spinning and in need of repair or replacement.

Goodman ac heat air handler starts noisily for about 30 seconds then stops. Condenser fan is okay. Inside fan works but seems weak. I can't find the model number, so I just picked the first one.


inside the air handle there is a motor and a cage(squirrel). I am assuming this is the problem. The side that has the pilot light, take this cove off first, then the back cover. There is a switch so when you take the back cover off it opens the circuit. You will see a main board and to the left and behind is the motor and squirrel cage. I would kill power and then remove the bolts making sure I make the wires and where they go. Then just take the motor and cage out. You will need a allen wrench to remove cage, then replace motor. Hope this helps Tim

Mouse got into the hot water heater thru the exhaust, now we are told that the fan bearings are bad - we have hot water, but when at the shower, it cannot produce enough hot water to keep up with the...


theoretically possible-----a mouse can get in, but most exhaust fan bearings are permanently sealed and are expected to run perfect for their designed life, without any need for lubrication---if a mouse got in, i can only assume that it was chewed up (or it's **** /urine) and was pulled into the motor/bearing shaft and caused some slow in revolutions due to animal parts grinding in the smooth bearings ---it could happen--it depends on how the bearings are sealed around the exhaust motor shaft....orrr, the mouse was killed by the spinning exhaust fan blade, and then "pasted" to the fan blades(ironically called a squirrel cage) and this caused extra weight and an unbalanced exhaust fan which would rapidly cause wear and burnout of bearings due to tremendous speed of exhaust fan---i have seen many a dead rodent inside "squirrel cages" (furnace and water heater exhaust fans and their housings)...in fact i chose to even scrape some of them out for refurbishment!

Running not blowing air


sounds as if fan isnt attached to motor shaft. There is a set screw on the fan cage that if it loosens the shaft will turn inside of the fan not turning the fan( also known as a squirrel cage) You need to get access to the fan motor and see first if its shaft is rotating, if it is see if the squirrel cage is turning if not the set screw located on the inner collar of the squirrel cage needs to be tightened. Thie set screw is more than likly an allen set screw.
