Type: Service Alert
Equipment: Furnace
Recall or Alert Date: 07-26-1999
Serial Number: GF-145-B
Brands Affected: Amana

Description of Problem:

In some installations the 10X10 blower wheel (Amana part #D6723306) used on GUC090X50B, GUC115X50B,GUD090X50B, GUD115X50B and GUX090X50B model furnaces, has been found to fail at the center plate-to-blade interlock. This type of failure can occur when the motor speed frequency coincides with the resonant frequency of the system. High duct static installations will cause the blower motor to operate at high RPM which can lead to center plate-to-blade interlock failures.
