My inducer motor is starting to squeel - does it need to be replaced?

The inducer motor sometimes makes a squealing noise and gets very warm. Should I get it replaced?

Probably. If it seizes up then you will have to wait for a repair before you can get heat going again and while it shouldn't be too big of a job, you may not want to wait in the cold.

A good HVAC tech will also tell you if he thinks there is a fix for the current one, but a squealing noise indicates there is friction between moving parts and that is not good.

To keep legal happy, let me just say that I am not an HVAC contractor, and you should never even look at your furnace without having a qualified, liability accepting HVAC contractor present.  To keep sales happy, let me just say that you can find an HVAC contractor that's happy to take your money here: http://www.furnacecompare.com/perl/find_contractors.pl.

PS

Also, if it is getting very warm it very likely is about to seize.
