Old 70's Sears hassock fan. Motor squeals like a banshee when turned on. Cleaning and lubricating not helpful. Needs a new motor, I'd think? Got one? Point  me to one?



Thanks,
John Peek

Hi John - if the motor squeals, that means the bearings must not have received the oil which was placed into the motor. The motor probably needs to be opened up and the oil felts and bushings oiled up directly from the inside of the motor housing.

If the motor still runs, most likely the winding is still good. I would try to save the motor if possible.

Sincerely,
David

Thanks, David. Worked a charm. Found brass bushings on either end of the center shaft. Dry as a bone. Applied industrial strength grease. Hopefully I won't have to lubricate it for another 50 years!Best,
John.
