Atwood 8500-IV Furnace Blower Destruction?
I am camped at an RV park five miles from Glacier NP. At 5:00 am this morning, I was awakened by what sounded like a gunshot and glass shards falling. Checked everything and couldn't find anything wrong. The furnace was running at the time. I still have heat (43 deg's outside) but the high temp limit keeps cycling the burner. I suspect that the blower fan (double squirrel cage) may have partially self destructed. I am able to see half the fan from inside the coach and it seems to be intact. In talking with both Thor and Atwood tech service, I need to remove the outside cover and try to access the blower. Unfortunately, it is cold and raining heavily so I am waiting for the rain to pass before undertaking the exterior access.
My question is: Has anyone else had their blower fan fail/self destruct?
