ARUF032-00A-1B and ARPT032-00C-1B Air Handler Blower Motor Noise

Type: Service Alert
Equipment: Air Handler
Recall or Alert Date: 05-20-2005
Serial Number: CAG - 483
Brands Affected: Amana

Description of Problem:

We have received some field reports concerning a high pitched blower noise on some ARUF032 and
ARPT032 air handlers. After investigating the issue, it has been determined that the blower wheel and motor
combination used in the two air handler models listed above, may create a harmonic noise in certain
applications and under certain circumstances.

If this issue is experienced with any ARUF032-00A-1B or ARPT032-00C-1B air handler already installed in
the field, we are recommending replacement of the blower motor and wheel with the following Blower
Motor/Wheel Kit, Part # 0270A00026S.
