A:

Thank you for your question and I understand you concern. The blower wheel will likely need to be removed and replaced. It is probably not fitting tight enough on the motor shaft causing it to rattle and freewheel on the motor shaft.

The top will have to be hinged opened before you can access the two screws at the front top area of the side panels. There will be two clips, one over near the left side panel and one over near the right side between the top and front panel. Use a thin putty knife to slip between the top and front panel and press inwards on the clip. While pushing inwards on the clip, lift that corner of the top up a little and repeat steps for the other clip. Raise the top open and remove the screw located near the top of each side panel. Once the two screws securing the front panel to the side panels have been removed, hinge the top of the front panel towards you and disconnect the door switch and then lift it up and off.

The blower wheel is held on with a C-clip and a spring type clamp. The blower wheel part number is #31001043 and is available to order from Sears PartsDirect

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services
