When the blower was sent for repairs was there an inspection report provided which indicates the bearing clearances and housing tolerances or any other findings? In my experience repair shops seem to undertake a full rebuild on blowers yet provide little to no insight as to what problems were actually found which leads to repeat failures in the future.

A lot of blower service agents are a bit like compressor companies they send in they're men in black to swap out old for new regardless and they're effectively a black box.......try getting bearings or screw details on any.

Good luck getting info from repair companies. They have no desire to fix problems which would reduce the numbers of rebuilds they do. I’m still scratching my head about a motor shop that told one of my clients to use a lithium-based grease - most motors ship with polyurea-based grease in the bearings, and the two types are generally not compatible at all.
