Furnace blower issue on 2006 Wildwood

Hi. I have a 2006 WILDWOOD LE SERIES M-20FB. I think some mice built a nest in the furnace blower while we were away for a few weeks. When I turned on the furnace upon our arrival the blower was extremely loud and felt like it was shaking the trailer. I am assuming that it is now out of balance?

Does anyone know where I access the blower motor to clean it out?


Thanks,
Kevin

Sounds like the nest is still in the fan blades. I have never been into the heater (yet) so no help there. Have you contacted Suburban?

The fan is at the back of the furnace. To remove furnace you will have to disconect gas line. There is a quick conect eletriclal conection beside the furnace. Mine is behind the electrical panel. You will have to take out two screws that hold the furnace inplace. Remove the exaust ports from the outside of the trailer. I have not had a furnace since before christmas. Temp are between 26 and 40 degrees f. Am glad I hired a tech to perform the repair work. My board is gone. He had a new one in the box installed on furnace board did not work. Had to order in a new board installed furnace ran for 12 hours and board stopped working. Furnace has been in the shop for the past 3 days. There seems to be a problem with the boards. If I had replaced the board my self I would have to pay for second board because they could not be certain that I did not damage it when installed. It is wise to hire a pro do do work on your furnace.

We have Dirt Daubers that will get into any opening and built mud nests. The nests can weigh several ounces and the daubers seem to love fan blades. I had one build a nest in the AC of a cabover truck camper several years ago. When I turned it on it shook the whole camper. If you haven't allready done so cover all openings furnace, water heater, frig, etc with screen.
Good luck.

No Heat! Help!!!!

Hi. A local handy man pulled a dead mouse out of the furnace for us but the furnace does not generate any heat. There is power and he also checked the gas line and there was definitely gas to the unit. It is a Suburban SF-20F furnace Stock Number 2329. When I turn on the thermostat it kicks on....and is now blowing quietly due to the removal of the mouse carcass, but it never gets hot. It sounds like I hear the "click" when it is trying to ignite but nothing ever happens. We are up for the weekend in the trailer with no heat! Brrrrr. We are north of Crivitz Wisconsin.

Please help if possible.
Thank you!
Kevin
