furnace rattle

I have a 99 Safari and the reset button was out I reset it and al started well but had extreme vibration with fan. My question is can I access the fan and motor to inspect from the outside where the exhaust is? Not sure if I have bad bearing or not. It is an Atwood 8500-IV.

Not sure if you ever found an answer from this, but you can access it from the outside. If you are looking at the motor you can reach into the fan housings on the ends and feel if the fans have broken. This can cause vibration.

Thank you, can the motor and the fans be removed from the access door. I am one handed and am reluctant to start something that will get too complicated for my physical abilities but, I can enlist help
