Came home to a COLD house and no hot water this afternoon:-(

Well after running for a month without any problems it happened. :( Blower motor quit Monday. After an hour drive on Tuesday to the local Grainger store in Syracuse NY I picked up p/n 4MA10 motor all was well again. :) Today I came home to no heat or Hot water. :o Take a look at what I found in the auger pipe. :mad: I went through 4 shear pins before I found my tee shirt that I had misplaced in my coal bin. Sometimes I amaze myself. Oh well, everything is back together and running fine. :lol:
