Replacing squirrel cage blower Due to our location, Soleus will not honor warranty on my split system a/c, KFR-1200. They have sent me a replacement squirrel cage for the air handler. (Original cage was damaged by loose piece of metal.) Can anyone advise me how to get the squirrel cage out and the new one in? Thanks.

You have to take blower out by removing the 2 screws that is holding it ,then you loose the motor shaft from wheel by using a Allen key .Once motor shaft is loose you then loosen motor frame from housing and slide motor out .Might have to spray it with wd 40 .
On the housing should be some screws along the side so you loosen those and house ing would open up so you can get wheel out.
To install you reverse the process.
Please note the direction of the old wheel because if install backwards will not work right
