I got the unfortunate news yesterday that the inducer motor on my 2002 Carrier gas furnace has failed (Series 100 58DLA090-10114). Given the price for the repair job, I have decided to attempt to replace the motor myself. I was quoted $900 to replace the motor. I found the part (Carrier part number HC21ZE122A) online for $70 plus next day air shipping. I’m pretty mechanically savvy but don’t have much experience with HVAC systems. I was hoping for some advice on this job.
Has anyone done this job before? How hard? Any good resources to guide me through it? Pitfalls? If anyone has replaced an inducer motor on a similar model and could provide me with some guidance, I would really appreciated it.
