Mr Bruner,
My Pryne 210 Blo Fan just burned out ... what were your results in replacing/relocating suitable exhaust fan?
Thanks,
Mary

I would replace it, not try to fix it. The newer ones pull much more air and are much more quite.

Ps....get the type with two squirrel cage fans. One motor with a shaft sticking out each end. (dual shaft)

Kitchen Exhaust Fan


Been having trouble with the fan slowing down or not rotating at all. Removed motor with bracket from vent opening. Specs include: Western Electric, 3/54 ( Mfg. date?) 110v, 52 watts, .65 amps, ser. no. W6131G12, Mod. 582, 1400 rpm. Lubrication seemed to be the prob. as rotating fan manually required more effort than normal. Lube tubles are at either end of motor housing. Motor operates vertically so lube tubes are horz. starving bearings of oil when operating. Put motor ,attached to bracket in a vise, with holes vertical. sprayed WD-40 to fill tubes, and ran for about i/2 hr. Motor warmed up nicely. and after cooling down turned easier. Reinstalled. Has been running ok. since,( a week). If I have more trouble however I will look for new replacement.

Pryco merged with Emerson a while back, and these exhaust fans apparently went out of production about 10 yrs. ago.
