    So i get a call for wind noise from a furnace. Its a down flow 5 ton ng unit.

    Sounds like its coning from the blower. A nice shhhh noise at full rpm. I pull the motor and check the plenum. Looks luke theres some loose insulation so i adhere it all down, put it back together and recheck. Still making the noise. I pulled the blower again thinking it might be bearings, of coarse its a four bolt mount and i dont have one so i pull the motor apart and oil the bearings. Get it all back together and its still making the noise. I pull the motor and energize it on the ground with blower attached. No noise.

    At this point im about to blow the **** up on the home owner. Stupid bitch is standing over me bitching about every little thing and ttelling me whats wrong with it. I called the shop. Send the boss out, im 2.5 hours in and haven't got a diagnosis yet.

    This mother****er shows up and as soon as the motor starts up he says its a bad blower wheel. He says pull it ill show u. He rolls it over wiggling the vanes and finds a loose one... just enough to make noise. He smiles and says order a squirrel cage and leaves.


    ****ing hate old men sometimes.
