GE ECM 1/15 blower motor vibration/noise

The GE ECM blower motor on my 1999 American Standard is emitting a loud vibrating noise that carries throughout the house.
It even carries into the garage through the exhaust tubing. A recent visit by a repairman ended with his "fix": He attached a plastic strap to stop the vibrating noise that he said was coming from a loose plastic cover. Result: even louder noise and vibration. Advice?
Is there anything I can do short of replacing the motor?

Have you checked the blower wheel real good to make sure there's nothing inside of it? I have found countless things in blower wheels causing noise.

Thanks for the quick reply. No, I haven't checked it (not sure how). The service guy did clean the furnace of dust, etc....Could he have dislodged something that got into the blower wheel?
