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.

Well, that worked great for awhile.I let the smoke out, I guess.
Anyone know of a place or person to repair it?
In or near Austin, TX?

Thanks,
John

I believe so. I smelled smoke when I walked into the room and found it not blowing.
Now it will not work when I try and turn it on. Completely dead. 
Something burned. However, I have not taken it apart again. 


Anyways it has sentimental value, and I was hoping I could find 
someone close by to replace the motor, capacitor, etc..  


Thanks,
John

Anyone tell me if shopping for a replacement motor at Grainger is a good option?

Applying grease to oilite (porous bronze) bearings will block the pores and cause them to seize. Use only non-detergent motor oil (or other electric motor oil) for future reference.

Grainger has no motor this small. Neither does Purvis Bearing. Hamilton Electric neither. I wonder where I could find out the electrical specifications on this motor? Horsepower, RPM's, torque, voltage, current, windings, measurements, and I don't know what-all.Purvis is willing to ask their electric motor suppliers for one, if I can get that info. 

TIA, 
John
