Customer Questions & Answers

is this motor ccw/cw?

is this motor ccw/cw?
Asked by: Peter
This motor can be wired to spin either direction. As shipped, mine was CCWLE - Counter Clock Wise with respect to the Lead End, which is the same direction my old non-reversible motor spun. To change direction, there are two sets of wire connected to each other that you disconnect and reconnect according to the label on the motor. Takes about thirty seconds to do it.

Will 3-speed replace old 4-speed?

I have a failed GE 1/2 HP 4-speed blower motor. This Century DL1056 matches all specs, except it is 3-speed. Does anyone know if it will work, or what trouble it might cause? Thanks!
Asked by: DJ
A lot of units only use 2 speeds 1 for heat & 1 for cooling. The other speeds would be unused. Just be sure hp and voltage are correct. A single speed motor could be used. A jumper would be needed in that case.

is a 10 uf capacitor the same as a 10 mfd?

Asked by: Ringo
That is not really a "u" but the Greek letter mu which means micro. The M in MFD is also micro. Important that you have the proper voltage on your capacitor. It MUST be 370V (or greater) or it blows up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Product Received was bent When I attempted to return at the store they stated I could not return the item because it was purchased online. But it rattles and makes such a loud noise that I cannot use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good value 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 out of 5 by from Sweet motor ...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 out of 5 by from Life saver 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 out of 5 by from 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.
