Did you break it or get it off in tact? Do not feel bad if you broke it because that happens a lot. The heat welds the blower to the  shaft.
Yeah it broke and thats what I figured about the heat welding it to the shaft, thats why I was here asking if anyone knew a trick to try and salvage the wheel, oh well thanks again.

Glad to hear you got it off.  O0

Are you taking it off to replace the motor or are you just replacing the blower wheel?

        never grow rusty.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL

 

I need to remove the blower in order to change motor
