WeatherMaker 8000 odd noises

shakushinnenMarch 22, 2013

Hi,
Is it possible that part of my 'el cheapo brand' filter has been sucked into the fan, and is causing problems. (It was a flimsy thing that had partially caved in, and may have lost some of it's media.) It almost sounds like the motor is labouring to start. If so, where can I get some detailed instruction on how to clean this out, and do a little house cleaning at the same time? I have download the Carrier maintenance instructions, which really don't tell you much. It seems fine now, but ......
Thanks,
.... john

Some of the old blower motors on the Carrier furnaces had a port to add lubricating oil. Check to see if your blower has this option. If it does see if adding a few drops of motor oil will help the situation. The motor may be reaching end of life and probably needs to be replaced. It could also be a start up capacitor. Look for the capacitor and see if it is replaceable.
