If your blower is no longer working, save yourself hundreds if not thousands by replacing it yourself. Replacing a blower motor is one of the easiest DIY jobs on your HVAC system, and this is even more true with a plug and play ECM type motor.
Oftentimes, the only hard part is getting the rusted shaft of the old motor out of the fan, which is where a puller tool comes in very handy. Sometimes you will need to replace the squirrel cage if the shaft is completely frozen.
These type of ECM blower motors were used in the following furnace models:
American Standard & Trane MOT13004 , MOT-13004 , MOT12542 MOT12888 , MOT12319 , MOT-12888 , MOT12292
Carrier / ICP S81-948, 1172987 , 1173682, HD44AE137 , HD44AE137A , HD44AE138 , 5SME39HXL298 , 5SME39HKL017 , 5SME39HXL285
On the sticker of your old motor you will probably find one of the following model numbers:
5sme39hxl018 / hd44re138
Azure Digi-Motor # 10800
