how would I look for the bearing?

where, sorry

Id ir sounds like fan is loose. That is usually the large hub on squirrel cage blow spinning on the hub. Rheem and Lennox have problems with this. You really can not see it spin on shaft but that sounds like problem. Which means you have to replace squirrel cage blower. Not motor just blower. Russ
