Customer Question
The blower works but...

The blower works but is scraping on the housing. It appears that the blower assembly some how is resting on the housing causing it scrap making a load noise. Is there a retainer at the bottom that is off or loose. Thanks David

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

It just started. Wanted some advise before I take it apart and see. I can't find a schematic on the blower assembly.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't know
