3 Common Furnace Fan Problems

Quality Air Background element

Whether you have a gas furnace or an electric furnace keeping your home warm this winter, it will require an air handler to work. Without the fan in the air handler, warmed air won’t move from the cabinet and reach you through the ductwork and vents.

Because the fan is one of the main mechanical parts of a furnace, the extensive work it does will cause it to suffer from wear that may eventually lead to repairs or replacements. These repairs will need professionals familiar with furnaces; you shouldn’t trust the job to amateurs (or to DIY guides you find on-line). Call for trained specialists in heating repair in Columbus, OH when you need repairs for your furnace fan or any other component. Quality Air Heating and Air Conditioning is ready 24/7 to assist you.

Problems you may experience with a furnace fan

  • Bent fan blades: Your furnace’s air filter protects internal components, like the fan, from suffering damage due to debris. But debris can still sometimes infiltrate the air handler, especially if the air filter has become clogged. When this happens dings to the fan blades can bend it out of shape. It doesn’t take much to cause the blades to start striking the edge of the fan casing, which will rapidly lead to serious damage to the air handler. The moment you hear the noise of striking or clanging from the air handler, call for repairs.
  • Burnt out fan motors: A number of motors operate throughout a furnace. The one that powers the fan carries an enormous workload. Without regular maintenance to make sure the motor parts are clean, it will eventually burn out; this process will speed up if dirt enters the air handler. Clicking and rattling noises are often an early indication of motor troubles. A shrieking sound usually means the motor bearings are dirty. Sometimes a technician must replace the motor entirely.
  • Loose fan belt: The belt that runs from the motor to the fan is similar to the fan belt in a car (although experience with changing one doesn’t mean you can change the other). The fan belt can eventually start to fray apart, develop cracks, and come loose. A loose belt not only threatens to stop the fan from working, it also threatens serious damage to all the components of the air handler. Clicking sounds can be a warning for a fraying fan belt, and harsh slapping and clanging almost always indicates a loose belt. Have repairs done immediately.
