I have removed the clamp from the fan collar and split-ring retainer from the motor shaft. Fan still will not budge. Looks like it might take a special tool. Any Ideas on how to finish removing it?

Blower Wheel
The blower wheel is attached directly to the motor shaft behind the blower cover.
Whenever replacing a blower wheel, always replace the clamp.
Removal
1. Disconnect power to the machine.
2. Remove front panel and close door.
3. Remove shroud/tumbler front assembly.
4. Remove blower cover.
5. Remove clip retaining ring.
6. Compress and remove clamp around hub of impeller.
7. Work blower wheel back and forth while pulling off shaft. It may require considerable effort to remove the blower wheel.

That did it. Thanks. It was a struggle but it finally came free.

And of course the motor is not making noise anymore - replacing it anyway :-(
