Finally got the LP system checked out for safety and leaks. Everything seems okay, so I gave the furnace a try.

It fires up nicely and puts out decent heat. Model number is NT-32CD.

Problem is that the squirrel fan is in dire need of lubrication. It is slow to start, makes a decent squeaking noise until it ramps up, and really is working too hard. It ran enough to test it, but I wouldn't feel comfortable running it without doing some maintenance on the blower motor.

Unfortunately, they snookered the thing into a wall cabinet so tightly that I'm lost trying to figure out how to get to the fan. It is at the back of the furnace box. No access doors. No outside panel. Nada. Zip? According to the exploded diagrams in the manual, it looks like the rear panel may come off. Without pulling the furnace out, that won't be much help.

The front panel does come off, but all that is accessible from the front is the front end of the heat exchange unit. The fan is behind the heat exchange and the openings are only about 1/2 inch wide.

Any suggestions other than uninstalling the furnace and pulling it out? I'm pretty sure that if I could get some oil on the motor bushings things will be okay.

I've had success with other electric motor rebuilds in the past... Is there something unique about the motors in the Suburban? If so, once I get access I can replace it.

Starting to think that the only way to oil, repair, or replace is going to be to pull the whole furnace.

I just finished fixing my Suburban NT40. The control board was bad. Anyway, I had to pull the whole thing out. Then the furnace itself slides out of a sheet metal cabinet. Then you have access to all the components. On mine the fan was noisy. Turns out it had slipped off its drive shaft enough to be rubbing on the housing. Pushed it back in, and it is quiet and free running again. The motor has sealed bearings, I don't think you could lube them. But yea, you'll likely have to pull the whole thing out.

Welcome to the limitations of the less than thoughtful design execution ...

"Look how I craftily installed the device, it fits and it works..."

"What do you mean it will need repair sometime?"

"It won't be me having to do it..."

It's only funny until you're living it, then it is just tears...

You have fresh CO monitors? RV junk, first the fan, then the heat exchanger, and you don't wake up to that failure...

happy coaching!

I have oiled the Suburban motors also with varying degrees of success. Some (most?) use oil impregnated sleeve bearings. the sleeve gives up oil for the life of the bearing. When the sleeve runs out of oil, the motor squeaks. I have taken the motor apart and soaked the sleeve in oil for a couple of weeks. That seems to work best. A replacement motor is better.

As far as access, I'm guessing you are going to have to disassemble a bunch of stuff to get to it. They don't build these buses with service in mind.

When you pulled it out, what was the situation with the intake/exhaust ports? Looks like I remove the screws from the outside of the vent covers, and then the unit should slide out. Is this correct?

Mine was a custom install, by the original converter. The intake hose is flexible and held on by a hose clamp. The exhaust is rigid steel, and just slides into a slightly larger fixed pipe that goes out through the floor and out the bottom. You'll just have to take sh*t apart until you get the thing out. Have fun.

When I built my bus, it took me much longer than most (6 years) because I went to great lengths to make everything serviceable. I can basically take everything apart in my bus if needed.
Although I have an Atwood 35,000btu propane furnace with exterior door, this is similar to yours. My old Atwood would just run on if left on without propane. I left the furnace on with the propane off. So when the temp got to low, the furnace came on. The fan ran for 2 weeds straight (bus is plugged in). The fan motor did not like this and became very tight and squeaking (sound familiar?). I tossed around to just replacing the fan motor, but read that the furnace had been updated with a quieter blower. I bought a complete new furnace (about $550) and yes the new furnace was quieter. The best update is that the new furnace has a blower overrun control that if the furnace doesn't detect heat (when the flame goes out), the blower runs for 2 minutes then turns off-even if propane is turned off.
My suggestion-just buy a new furnace. Good Luck, TomC

That was actually my first thought. Not sure if you can tell from the photo I posted, but there is ducting on both sides of the furnace as well as from the bottom. The new furnace which would replace this has a physically smaller cabinet. Sounds like this would make it easier to reconnect, but the configuration and layout makes it necessary to install elbows or adapters and there probably won't be enough room.

The other thing that is different on on the newer ones is that they seem to be either 12v or 120v. I initially thought that I had a 120v only unit, but apparently it can run off either 12v or 120v. I like that and would like to keep the option.

My first choice at this time is to get the motor serviced, repaired, or replaced if possible. The rest of the unit looks nearly new, so I have not found a reason (yet) to abandon it.

If tht is original to the coach, I'd bite the bullet and buy a new one. Fit is the same, some higher output is available, see if you can make some accessibility while you are at it. Oiling motor will last shorter since it has to be removed or access and combustion chamber is how close to end of life. Clean it up, oil motor, sell it on Craigslist. One less thing on your repair/ replace list. After my father had the 4104 for 15 years, ( mid 80's conversion)while living in it from November to May, ( snow birds ), he replaced refrigerator, propane furnace, and icemaker. He also carried a spare shureflo water pump. He did oil the furnace fan motor every year on it. He was always very intensive on preventive maintenance on whole coach and conversion equipment.

Fit is sort of the same, but not quite. I'm really hesitant to spend $500 or more on a new furnace, only to have to spend countless hours trying to figure out how to make it fit. Sure would seem easier to just repair, restore, or replace the blower motor. I do understand the point of not fully trusting a 43-year-old furnace though. In the end, some of this will depend on whether or not suitable install parts are available to fit something new into the same opening and use the same outside intake/exhaust holes.

The way the cabinetry was done in the Custom Coach builds makes it very difficult to modify things. They used custom cabinets which are screwed & glued together. The cabinets are made from 1-2 layers of 3/4" plywood and the whole thing is wrapped with Formica laminate. The corners are all rounded and the Formica bends around the radius. Once they got through with the build, the entire cabinet structure from one end of the kitchen to the other end by the wardrobe became a huge monolith. The furnace on ours is about 2/3 of the way down that wall under one of the wardrobe closets. Hopefully they left enough room to pull it out the intake opening. I'm not sure there is enough room to pull it straight out, and I'll either have to hope the bathroom door across the hall lines up enough or that I can turn it as it leaves the opening. The hall in front of the opening is barely as wide as the furnace is long. They certainly never thought that anyone would ever need to pull this out for service.

The duct on the right side of the furnace goes through the bottom of the wardrobe next to it. The walls and floor of the wardrobe are screwed & glued together. There is no way to access the other end of the duct to pull it off the furnace. I'll have to work in the 2" between the furnace and the right side of the space.

I guess convenience of servicing things was sacrificed to the desire to build a coach with zero rattles. That they did - this thing goes down the road with barely a whisper from the cabinetry and built-ins.

Okay - I'm done venting now.

I'll look at this again tomorrow when the sun is shining and the skies aren't so gloomy. Maybe I'll have a better go at it then.

Thanks for the suggestions.

I've searched all over for that. The closest I've found is the NT-34SP. it's close but not the same. Did you find a replacement for the NT-32CD that was the same size? Love to know where you saw that if you did, as I've searched high and low and haven't found it yet.

Give them a phone call. If they carry blower motors and combustion Chambers, then fix it. If it is early one of uncommon standard dimensions, then bite the bullet and upgrade. Either company or major dealer should be able to recommend which model would replace it best. At least then you can make your installation more serviceable. Is that plywood behind it removeable from other side?

The model we have was made in the 70s. They still have similar model, but there are enough changes to make it not be so simple.

I'll be tearing into the project this week if the weather holds. Once I get the furnace pulled out I'll be able to make a better decision. Unless the motor can be made to work, then replacing at least the motor will be necessary. Up to this point I have not found any source for a direct replacement on the motor. There are a few similar looking ones out there for sale, but without a cross-reference chart there is no way to know for certain they will fit and function properly.

The way the cabinets around the furnace were installed makes any changes to them very difficult. The newer furnaces are slightly smaller, so perhaps one will work and allow for ducting to be connected. I'll see.

Thanks for your suggestions. I will keep them in mind as things progress.

you should get a saw like this https://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-JobMax-4-Amp-Multi-Tool-with-Tool-Free-Head-R28602/206824272 

it makes it easy to ADJUST ! things to the new systems .

I have redone a lot of stuff on the dated featherlite as some of the systems that were state of the art in 2000 are not made today and I have a saw like that and it makes work easy and precise when redoing things

The inside of the furnace really looks like it's hardly been used. The paint on the heat exchange unit is fully intact, and the rest of the unit is in great shape. The only thing that I can see wrong at this point is the very stiff blower motor.

I was planning to attempt a rebuild on the motor, but on a whim I called Suburban. They had a current part number for the motor, and I was able to order one from a parts supplier. It should be here before the weekend.

If all goes well, I hope to get the furnace into my shop and do the motor swap this weekend. I'll try and get some photos as things progress.

Hi Richard, do you have a suburban phone number? Tom lvmci...

423-775-2131

This is the number for the parent company, Airxcel. The phone answering system didn't seem to have an option for consumers looking for parts and even said that they don't sell parts to consumers, but I pushed enough buttons to get a real person who was able to look up the part number for me. Once I had the number the part was only a Google search away.

This is what an unused 43-year-old heat exchange unit looks like. It's also why I'm making the effort to salvage the furnace.

Also a photo of the burner. Some surface rust, but no real sign of use or corrosion.

The only thing that I have to figure out is how to install a metal crossover tube as would have been done in the recall. This one still has the original rubber tube, and while it's still flexible and soft I figured it would be a good idea to swap out for metal. Apparently the recall part is NLA. I've got a length of 3" muffler pipe and just need to figure out a way to gasket the ends. Right now I'm thinking of using the original rubber tube as the gasket by cutting off 1/2" rings. The muffler pipe is a tight fit over the rubber.

Motor should be here tomorrow, and then I'll put things back together.

Update on this issue...

Project is now complete other than reinstalling the furnace in the coach. I'll do that as soon as it warms up a bit or gets sunny enough to warm the inside of the coach. Ironic, eh? Fixed the furnace but now it's too cold to work outside.

The motor came in and was an exact fit for the original. The only problem was that the new motor had three mounting tabs spot welded onto the motor case. The original mounted with a wrap-around clamp. A little time with the Dremel took care of that.

I discovered that the crossover tube was never replaced during the recall decades ago. Since the furnace was never used the rubber crossover tube was still in good shape. However, I went ahead and replaced it. The recall parts are no longer available, so I replaced it with a high-temp silicone tube which is sold as an intake tube for guys that hot rod cars. It's four-ply reinforced and was sized nearly exactly to the original. It holds in snugly and I think is going to do the job just fine. I've got a brand-new carbon monoxide monitor to mount to be sure.

Here are a few photos of the work:

Now If you have a BBQ tank, you can bench run unit to verify everything still works ok. Although I guess you ran it when you heard the noisey fan.

I was able to bench test the fan, and it works very well. No portable tank so I cannot bench test the firing. The unit fired up fine before I removed it, so I'm not anticipating any problems. My only real concern is getting a good seal as I reconnect the flared fitting for the LP line. I'll double check everything with soapy water before firing up the unit, and then check again before closing the access panel.

Final followup...

Sun was shining enough today to make it bearable to work outside. I got the furnace back into the coach today. Surprisingly things went pretty well, and other than a bit of frustration trying to get all the ducts and intake/exhaust lined up there were no problems. LP connections did not produce any bubbles on the leak test. The fan kicked on both with 12v and 120v, and it stayed on after the burn until things cooled down. The burner had a nearly pure blue flame, and the pilot looked good. Thermostat seems to do its job. Best part was that the CO monitor read "0" the entire time I was conducting tests. Got the panel in the wardrobe above the furnace put back in, and was even able to staple down a nice piece of carpet to replace the one that was sacrificed in order to get the panel removed.

Best part?? The furnace warms the coach nicely and runs quietly.

Total cost for the repair was $100 for the motor and another $25 for the replacement crossover tube.

Unless I'm missing something, I think that I'll classify this as a successful project.

One down, 100 to go. You don't have a Uline icemaker, do you?
