Draft Inducer

All of sudden have a decent new loud noise coming from my Luxaire Furnace. It is coming from the Draft Inducer. I included an audio clip of it running and winding down upon shut off. Can anyone help me? Can it clean it, replace the fan, replace the motor, what is generally the steps to take here.

Thanks in advance

The motor bearings are bad. Replace the motor.
Some applications just the motor is replaced and some the motor and blower come as a set.

This is a really common issue with inducer motors. Sometimes they will whine like that for many years without issue. Mine has been doing that for five years. Best to replace it though.

I agree. My York inducer has been loud since last year.
I've got the replacement...... just to lazy to replace it.
