    I have a AO Smith Power Shot power-vented gas water heater, model FPSH-50, 6 years old, found the blower impeller melted and broken into several pcs.

    I am thinking replace the blower assembly, but I do not know is it worth to do that. The list price is $410. Meanwhile, I suspected the melted impeller is secondly damage but root cause.

    Any suggestion would be greatly appliciated.

    Hello: My first suspicion is a blocked vent, but you might do well to talk to the tech department at AO Smith. http://www.hotwater.com They will be able to help you zero in on the possible causes of the damage you have.

    Yours, Larry
