Got a question. The blower motor went out on my AC. Not the compressor motor but the squirrel cage motor. I found a "free" motor that was about the same size, or so I thought, to mine. Turns out its a 1/4 hp motor. Pulled my old one out this morning and its a .90 hp. I thought what the hell, let's try the 1/4 hp. The 1/4 hp works but seemed like it got pretty hot in a short amount of time that I tested it. A new .90 hp motor is around $200 which I don't have.
Anyone know of any places I can get one cheaper? I am pretty sure that running this smaller motor is not a good thing. I am not beyond running a used motor either at this point.
