How to replace the blower motor in my Trane XC80 gas furnace to ensure proper airflow?
1. Turn Off Power: Before you begin any work, ensure the gas supply to the furnace is turned off, and turn off the electrical power to the furnace. You can do this by switching off the breaker or disconnecting the electrical supply to the unit.
2. Disconnect the Gas Line: If necessary, disconnect the gas line from the furnace to ensure there is no gas supply during the replacement process.

7. Install the New Blower Motor: Position the new blower motor in place, ensuring it's properly aligned and securely attached to the blower assembly.
8. Reconnect the Blower Assembly: Reconnect the blower assembly to its housing. Ensure that all bolts or fasteners are securely tightened.
9. Reconnect Electrical Connections: Reattach all electrical connections to the new blower motor according to the labels or documentation created during the disconnection.
10. Reassemble Panels and Covers: Securely reattach all removed panels and access covers to the furnace.
11. Turn On Power: Restore power to the furnace by switching on the breaker or reconnecting the electrical supply.
12. Test the System: After the replacement, test the furnace to ensure that the new blower motor is operating correctly. Verify proper airflow and check for any unusual noises.

Due to the complexity and safety concerns associated with blower motor replacement, it's strongly recommended that you hire a qualified HVAC technician or a Trane service provider to perform this task.
