Hamster wheel rattle

Furnace fired up and I hear a hamster wheel. It smooths out. Should I be thinking bearings?

Can you access the fan? Make sure nothing has ďmoved inĒ such as a mud robber nest etc. that would throw the fan out of balance. Doesnít take much to throw a squirrel cage out of balance.

Could it be some leftover construction debris that recently found a new home?

Had the same exact issue when new. Factory found a loose screw in the squirrel cage. It rattled when first started up but centrifugal force threw it to the outside and it became stationary and quiet. Post#3 is your answer...probably...I think.
