    just got an estimate on replacing the blower motor and module on my Carrier Air Handler model RX40NF025.

    Motor + module = $1201.53

    Sound about right?

    4 screwed 6 wires. The answer is to go find your distribute for carrier and give this model and serial from unit door. The result is you will get exact wire for wire replacer. Under $200 and just need screwdriver and needer nose pliers

    Tech just called and said his boss recommends changing out just the module first. $635 for that, less the $104 service charge from today to diagnose. Still seems high.

    Seems high.

    What's the module-- the control board for the air handler?

    So, the blower motor wasn't running (I'm guessing) and the tech wants to change out the motor and the module?
