Draft Inducer/Blower Question

I have a Inter-City Products gas furnace that is about 7 years old.

The model number : NTC075BFE2
The serial number : L9731 22858

The draft blower assembly has a FASCO motor on it. It is working fine.
The problem is with the wheel connected to the motor. It seems to have
lost its alignment. It is quite noisy and gets stuck from time to time and
requires someone to go and bang on it so that it starts. Once it starts,
it runs fine (noisy though).

My question is this. Is the assembly serviceable? In other words, if I take
the assembly off, can I fix the problem or would I need a new assembly?

When a (new or reparied) assembly is installed, is there a need for any type of gasket solid or liquid?

The last question is if I were to buy a new assembly, where would I find the
draft inducer/blower part number for that specific furnace?

Thanks.

You should be able to take it off with out any problems.. Most has like a rubber gasket or coupling to seal the unit.

Sounds like you may need a new assembly if it's rusted out.

Jay,

Thanks for your response. There does not seem to be any rust with the
blower. Therefore, I will stay with what I have. The problem is with the alignment of the blower. I am hoping that the blower assembly is serviceable. My real concern is with sealing the assembly when I install it back. I am thinking of using some sort of high temperature caulk.

Thanks again.

This is a assembly part it comes as motor, housing, & blower wheel.
Some models come with a fiberglass gasket and some kits don't so when you order your kit from a local distributor or dealer make sure that it has a gaset with it.
