...I actually haven't installed this bad boy yet. It is the same size and shape as my original GE motor, and I trust that it will do just as nice of a job as the old GE, minus the squealing noise!
Bonus, it comes with extra rings that might be useful if you want to repack the bearings with grease (I think that's what they're for), but at this price I would rather replace the entire motor and save the time!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sshhd Replaced 1960's furnace motor.
I purchased this to replace a furnace motor installed in 1966, so the installation was not a simple in, and out, process. However, if you are a reasonably experienced DIYer, it was straight forward. The wiring had to be deciphered, and the mounting to the fan had to be adjusted, and, also, the original motor did not have an external capacitor, so that added a little extra doing.
FYI, the yellow wire is the Common/neutral; I had to get online to learn THAT bit of important info.
I had to purchase an expensive hub puller to remove the fan from the shaft of the motor; be sure to loosen the motor mounting brackets before using the puller, and keep the puller straight to prevent distorting the hub.

It came in and I had it installed in about 45 min. Been running strong for several weeks now. Just make sure you a good understanding of the your unit and the motors wiring or you could have a bigger problem on your hands.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Harley72 Replacement motor for furnace fan.
The bearings were going out on old motor after 20 years. This motor is the ideal replacement for the blower fan. Motor was easy to replace and works like a charm.

When the blower motor in my Carrier furnace went belly up, I was looking at about $300 for an original equipment replacement, plus probably that much more for professional installation. This AO Smith motor cost about one third of that, was a direct replacement and was a snap to install. It turned out to be a good decision!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James This product was an exact replacement no modifications necessary
The only thing I would recommend a couple of wires did not have clips and I had to add them on. I would put the clips on all wires to save the customer time.
