    Replaced Blower Motor

    I needed to replace my blower motor and I thought it was going to be difficult bc most of my searching came up with negative comments and experiences. I just want all my fellow SVO owners know that it is as easy as could be to swap it out. Here is the walkthrough:

    This is the unit I replaced it with. It was same dimensions and fit perfect. I had to run the wires opposite of the color scheme. Original wiring was orange and black. The new unit was the same but I had to hook the black to orange and orange to black for the fan to run in the proper direction. I also used the original fan / wheel, it fit perfectly on the new unit. I used penetrating oil and a few raps with a hammer on the shaft to free it (after you take the clip off obviously).

    Nice write up, thanks for this. Never had to replace a blower motor yet, but I'm sure this will come in handy sometime in the future....
