Allegro 2013 36LA Noisy Heating Fan

Heating fan located under the refrigerator is making a loud noise, as though the fan blade might be rubbing against the body of the fan.

How do I access the fan. Underneath the refrigerator or is it located elsewhere?

Thanks for your help.

You can't access the fan from inside under the fridge. The only way to access it is from the outside by removing the cover on the furnace. If it's the two vent Suburban, take out the four corner screws and the cover will pull straight out. One of the vents has an attached tube, but it will pull out with a little wiggling. The fan enclosure will be just inside the cover.

I had the same problem, blower wheel is made of plastic and it is starting to break apart. The plastic will then get into the heat exchange and melt, the smell will make your eyes tear.
Suburban had a lot of problems with the plastic wheels. I had to replace the whole furnace, try to catch it before this happens.
It will be a lot less of a repair.

Older Tiffins have a wooden vent under the fridge that allows you access to the entire furnace. This vent is held in place with 4 pin nails. Pry the vent off from the front careful not to mar the wood. Easy to access the furnace from there.

Thanks to everybody for your help. Access was outside the rig through the vent enclosure. Problem was a wasp's nest that had dried as hard as a brick and was hitting the side of the fan enclosure each time it made a cycle!
