Squeak Coming from combustion air inducer

Hello,

I am looking for some help to get rid of the squeak coming from my Furnace. I have an Aire Flo 90 Gas furnace and everytime it starts up it squeaks like crazy and then the squeak goes away when it has been running for a while. When I have the cover off it seems to be coming from the combustion air inducer. See photo at the website http://www.lennox.com/pdfs/manuals/L...1%20Manual.pdf

Question: How do I fix this squeak? (i.e. oil something)
Is this a sign something is starting to fail? (Only 3 years old)
Any help would be great!

Thanks,
Eric

At 3 years, you should still be under warranty.

Since the draft inducer is the first thing to start on a call for heat, it should be easy to narrow it down. Generally, those motors do not have oil ports. And, yes, it's could be a sign of failure in the near future.
