Ceiling Fan Motor disassembly

8570 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Thurman
I have a ceiling fan that had one of the four wires that feed the motor break loose. I'm having trouble getting the motor cover off the motor to expose where the wires get soldered on to the motor windings. The motor cover has four screws on the top part of the cover and another four on the bottom. I have removed all screws and tried to pry the two pieces apart with a large screwdriver but I'm not sure it this is the way to do this. Is there any trick to getting the covers off. I'm fairly certain I can soldered the one broken wire back on once I get the cover off.

The link below from this web site helped me learn what I need to do once I get inside the motor.
