Hmm, I did one of those about a month ago & don't remember having any issues. Will those studs screw out?

Possibly some bonding between 2 dissimilar metal at the stud/ housing union? Maybe a drop of penetrating oil on each stud by the aluminum housing might help free it up?

Make sure to re-tie or tape those coils or you might have buzzing when you reassemble. I see some of the bindings have let go. 

Using the view on pic 2, protect the aluminum edge of the housing with a rag, and use a screwdriver to pry upward on each side of the stator alternately. You're trying to walk the stator out little by little. Have patience and make sure you feed the old stator wire in as the stator comes out or you risk breaking them off in the coil. Usually you can catch the edge of the screwdriver if it's a nice sharp new one on the layers of the stator core.


Best of luck!

Just took mine back apart Marce, start the nut on the outside studs & tap those studs a few times. With the nut on there, it shouldn't hurt the threads.

Be sure to use friction tape. Not vinyl electrical tape.

Mine is a desk model, so not sure on the pedestal. Probably in the same area as the capacitor.
