Can't remove blower assembly from thermopride furnace

atgf Member Posts: 2
My blower assembly stuck in its tracks with slides sandwiched between what appears to be two thin strips of insulating foam.
Any suggestions?

    I know this sounds stupid but.........make sure you got ALL the screws out, sometimes there are ones in the back that are really hard to get to....I've been fooled before :)

    Thanks, delta. I did remove the back casing panel and can see the whole assembly from all sides. There are only two screws fixing the assembly to the tracks. Then each assembly slider (jammed currently in its tracks by the insulation) is fastened to the fan cover body by another two screws. If to remove those, the assembly will drop down instead of sliding out. I am actually considering doing this...

    If it really will not move, that may be the only thing you can do. Good luck!

    They can sometimes be a pain to work loose. Not sure about Thermo Pride but some have screws zipped down from inside the burner compartment.
    If all screws are out, (usually 2)
    It will come out with a wiggle and shake.
