    New blower motor shakes

    Factory blower motors, condenser fans can't be sized by hp on name plate. Only amperage. If motor name plate in 6.1 amps and new motor is 6.0 amps have to go to 3/4 hp. These motors have service factor of 1 which means they can't be overloaded by .1 amp or will fail in no time

    Watts 3/4 PRV strainer plug socket size or special tool?

    Trace the nut cut it out take it to the store for a match. Could also use a box end wrench. Like with a electric water heater element had to machine the end to get more of the socket on the element because sockets have a rolled edge. 1.24 = 31.496 mmq
