Gotta pull the Suburban furnaces I guess? Oh Boy

1993 34 ft, classic, live full time, my first winter. Furnace motor squeals, randomly but geting worse, doubt will make it through the winter.

Can I, a non pro do this? pull out the unit & replace the fan motor??? Where are parts?? Is mfg. Suburban still in business???

Thanks, I cannot take it into a dealer, unit all set up for winter. Repairs have to be done here.

Suburban is still in business.

You can obtain parts thru an Airstream dealer.

When you call them, make sure you have the "'exact" furnace model number handy.

Removing the furnace is easy, as well as replacing the motor. You should also remove the burner log to clean it and the combustion chamber. A dealer can tell you how to do that.

It sounds like the blower fan bearings are going out. I had the same problem with my house furnace. The furnace is very easy to change out. You need to ask your self this question. How much will a dealer charge you to change out the fan compared to buying a new furnace. I just bought one from this company. Free shipping.

The motor bearings need a couple of drops of oil. Here's how I did it:

Don't do it if you're not confident with these things. They can kill you if you get it wrong.
