Hello all.  I'm wondering if it's appropriate that my D12 fan get's pretty hot when running.  I can tell the fan has been rewired, at least the power cord has.  I read that some fans have capacitors.  Wondering if this one 'had' one and doesn't anymore.Look forward to learning more.

Do I need to oil something inside? Thoughts?

I was thinking about taking it apart and soaking the parts in kerosene to clean them up.  Maybe dirt or dust on bearings is the issue?

The D12 is the two speed “working man’s fan” & uses a shaded pole motor. They do get quite hot when running due to the shaded pole motor. Those are a bit tricky to tear down. If you oiled it, it spins free, & doesn’t smell, it should be fine.

That is a weird design motor & only used on the cheaper line vs the PSC motor. The gear box is totally enclosed in the bullet back of the motor. The only way to access it is to remove the blade & cage, remove the nuts on the front holding the motor together. The bullet back has the motor studs in it.

alright.  I notice a hole in the top of the bullet.  Oil port?

It probably is, it has been a very long time since I tore one down. I'll look at my wife's D12 when I get off work.
