was going to try that. just needs bearings. I could do it myself, just afraid to take off the squirrel fans. they are plastic and very tight on the shaft. wonder if they are glues on??

anyone had experience taking them off??

thns

Got a picture?
Is there room on the back side of the fan to slide in two pieces of flat metal so the shaft can be pressed out?

Usually a metal spring clip is all that holds them fast to the shaft.

i got the fans off ok....opened it all up now can't locate the bearings.

the bearing # is NMB 608s almost identical to skate board bearings. but so far no luck on source. the shaft size is 5/16" dia i believe.

tied a supposedly replacement unit. identical fit and size. no go. the fan motor turns very slow. AC supplied to the motor is about 105vac. So the control board has a variable voltage to the motor depending on the heat setting by the looks of things. The difference in the motor specs are: original is 3000 rpm 115vac at 3.0 Amps. Replacement is 2800 rpm 115vac and 1.5 Amp..I can't explain why replacement would turn at very LOW rpm. Cheap motor?? wont turn at reasonable rpm unless full 115/120 vac is applied. runs perfect at full voltage source..GRRRRRR

so looking for bearings for now

$240, you are looking in the wrong places. It is really no different than the fan motor that is used in a fart fan.

Original motor is roughly a 1/3 HP motor, the new motor is roughly a 1/6 HP motor. Its not really compatible.
