Question Replacement Inducer Blower

We have a horizontal gas furnace, Carrier 349MAV. The inducer blower is making noise sounding like it is time to replace it. The plate on the inducer blower motor shows it to be a Fasco, 7062-3136 type U62B1, p/n 20000101, 3450 rpm, class B, 115v, 60H, .70A.

I researching a replacement inducer blower it seems the the replacement is the Fasco A147. The difference it the positioning of the two vacuum line nipples...everything else looks the same.

I just wanted to check with you all to make sure I have the correct blower before I order.

Thanks, Casey

Inducer

It sounds like you are replacing the whole inducer, not just the motor. When I replace an inducer, I always use the one specified by the furnace manufacturer. Sometimes the placement of the lines is critical.

Thanks Grady...the furnace is about 14 years old. I seems that it is just as easy to replace the whole inducer than just the motor itself. With the whole thing, looks like in addition to the motor is the black plastic housing for the "hamster" fan. Guess I could look online for just the motor. Seems from the research that I have done it that my particular inducer has been replaced by the A147. Just wanted to make sure. Casey

Inducer

Inducers are a lot more expensive than motors. A lot of times manufacturers change or upgrade components & unless you deal with a distributor, you never know.
