Draft inducer blower going bad

I have a Trane XE90 (1994) furnace. The power vent fan is making noise and I am in the process of changing it myself.
The FASCO blower unit is listed as 7062-3956 at 3450 rpm.
My repair man ordered the replacement unit. It's not the same. My unit has a electrical box attached on the side of the motor. The replacement P/N D342094P03 doesn't have that attachment and is listed at 3400 rpm.
His supplier said that is the replacement.
All I need is agree or disagree.
With the internet I can see the numbers and I cannot find anywhere that will support the replacement part.

    My only thought is that I'm dealing with carbon monoxide exhausting out doors. Some engineers calculated, in the 90's, that a 3450 rpm blower was warranted to exhaust the carbon monoxide from this furnace.

    Now 15 years later I'm even thinking, what's 50 rpm less and so what it doesn't have that electrical box on the side of the motor that I'm not aware of it's function.

    The new furnaces have advanced techniques that can encompass 3400 rpm or perhaps less was my thought process .

    I'll probably wind up using it but had to run thru the if's and and's.

The Fasco book says the correct replacement numbers are as follows:
"7062-3956 = D330757P035 = Fasco # A130" . If the one your installer has needs to be modified to fit, I'd find another installer!

    I have similar problem with my Fasco equivalent #A145. I'm pretty sure
    it is a bad motor bearing. Electrical box on the side of the motor
    usually holds the small capacitor the motor needs to run properly. It
    should not be a problem if the motor run capacitor is mounted on an
    external bracket, as long as the rest of the replacement "draft
    inducer" fits perfectly and moves the same amount of air!

I agree close enough. Only slightly slower. If it fits mechanically , useit.

    The electricial boxs seem to be on a lot of the old motors that I have changed out. I am fairly sure that when you open it ,it will only be there as a junction or to change speeds on a multispeed motor.

I need to replace the draft inducer Fasco A190, P/N C341445P01. It's $400! Is there a less expensive alternative?

This is not a "tool" question, you should have posted to Air Conditioners.

eBay doesn't list any right now, last one went for $50.

Is it the control board or the fan or both that you need to replace? Might be able to find the control board separate if you have that number.

Best bet if you have the time, is eBay, Craigslist or a local heat and air repair guy who might have an old one he can sell you.

If you are lucky:
Ten-year internal functional parts limited warranty is effective on units installed after October 1, 2001 and manufactured January 1, 2000 or after. Earlier installations have two-year parts warranty

How can I make the ac quieter inside the house?

If you have hard ducts, you can use some flex duct between the supply plenum and the hard ducts as a way to quiet the noise down.

Turned blower fan on to vent the home. Sudenly it smelled like burning air throughout the house. Turned off the fan. Restarted and no problem. What's going on? will need to do a little troubleshooting. Turn it off again and wait 20 minutes then back on. If no noise or odor. Are you certain that the smell came from the blower. "Thru-out the house is a lot of smell. Listen closely on startup and running....any unusual sounds. ? Which fan are you talking about ? Furnace ? Vent like bath or kitchen ? If you are handy you can check the wiring connections to be sure they are secure and making good contact with tight wirenuts or screws etc.

When turning on heat after a period of using air

It sounds like the fan limiter switch is going bad. This switch waits until the air temp is high enough for heating the house before allowing the fan/blower to come on. There is another switch that shuts off the blower when the air drops to a certain temp, or it may be the same switch that does both jobs. Hope this helps.

Could be correct, or you may have something in your fan that either fell into or crawled into your fan through the exahust duct.Since you have a service contract, have they actually been out to look at it or did they tell you that on the phone. It might be worth removing the fan and clear any forign matter. The problem is the labor to do that would be the same as to replace it. What does your service contract cover??

When a furnace is replaced with a newer style unit like yours with an inducer motor, they sometimes use the old vent pipe. These old style vent pipes are transite (light weight cement), the moisture created from your furnace exhaust is caught on the cool transite surface and runs back down into the blower blades or wheel bringing a white mineral deposit with it which causes your problem. The vent should nave been replaced with the heater using a metal vent material. You will need to replace your inducer motor assembly and vent pipe to prevent a recurrence.

No heat through vents

Does your condo have more than one thermostat? if so there are powered dampers that open and close to direct heat where it's being called for. You may have dampers stuck/inoperative.
