GE ECM Motor & ECM module cross reference

Hi All;

Is there a cross reference to replace the referenced motor and ECM? My ECM went bad from a power surge and although It sounds like I could repair it, the motor is 15years old and I think it would be wise to replace both units.

There are a lot of units available online that state an interchange number but how do you find the interchange number?

GE 5SME39HL0012 120/240 VOLT 1/2 Hp 1050 rpm 6.4/4.3 amps

Thanks in advance;

The module is specifically programmed for your furnace.

The new module/motor must be obtained from the oem.

No A/C Pro...but for the $10 in parts to maybe repair the module (assuming it might be the thermistors blown at the end of the motor)....vs the $400-600 for a new one.....are you sure you don't want to try a repair?

Now...if the ECM is some separate component that I'm not aware of...different story.

Might want to read these threads....

Here's the original repair thread that has been mentioned in other posts.....

Hi All;
I would atempt the repair but, the motor is 15 years old and probably due for replacement. Also, I don't see any signs of scorching or damage to the ecm module.
