HI everyone I have a question about a GE vortalex fan FM12V1 as most of you probably already know GE used self aligning bearings with no hole drilled through the bearing sleeve for the wick to touch the motor shaft. My question is the oil in my fan is getting on the inside of the front motor housing cover its not like a flood but its wet I have replaced the oil wick and cleaned out all the holes for oil circulation im using 3 in 1 SAE 20 motor oil is this normal it doesn't seem to be getting on the motor windings the fan works great I use it almost every day Thank you for any help
