Kitchen Exhaust Fan


Hi, I have an old kitchen exhaust fan with a bad motor. (loose sleeve bearings). The motor does not have a nameplate on it. I could not find a brand name or model number on the housing. The fan blade has the name of the Torrington Mfg. Co., Torrington CT. on the front of it. Torrington changed their name to the Torin Corporation in 1969 and was bought and sold by a couple of of other companies since then. The house is 56 years old, but, the fan does not look original to the house. The grill is approximately 10" in diameter. The propeller is about 7" in diameter, is made of aluminum and has 5 blades that turn clockwise as you're facing the shaft end of the motor. The opening of the housing is just under 9" in diameter. The housing is connected to what appears to be a short piece of 8" round duct that ties into a a rectangular duct approximately 3-1/2" by 10" and exits out the side of the house. The motor is 3.3", shaded pole, 4 poles, 5/8" iron stack, stud mounted from the bottom by 2 thru bolts onto a bracket that bolts onto the inside of the housing by 2 lugs. There is also a thin crossbar just above the fan that is welded to the housing. The length of the motor is 2 inches. The shaft length is 1" x 1/4". The grill attaches to a bolt that is connected to the motor mounting bracket. Pictures attached. Let me know if you need anymore info or pictures. If anyone has any info at all I would appreciate the help, Thanks.

All I'm seeing are red x's.

From your photo account or wherever you are trying to post these pics from, simply cut and paste them here. If they show up in your reply box then they'll show once posted.
