510-783-3959

When ordering a universal pressure switch, check the thread sizes and type of connection needed for the unloader hose and the on /off pressure range, note that some compressors do not need the unloader so you may leave the unloader connector open on the pressure switch). One more point to consider. A truly faulty pressure switch will leak air usually from bottom, may have the contacts burned, will not turn on the compressor, or may let the compessor run till the safety pop valve opens. If your compessor runs but never reaches enough pressure to pop the safety, suspect the piston/cylinder or head reed valves or gasket, or leak in the system. If your compressor does not start, temp connect the lead wires to the motor leads and test run the system (unplug if the pressure gets over 120). If test run is ok, then order the pressure switch. Good luck with your repair,.

VORNADO FAN BROKEN BLADE DONT REPLACE!!!!!


My dog knocked off my vornado which then broke a blade off my favorite fan. I was going to use epoxy to try to get the blade to stick back on. This would not work. The fan spins to fast to use glue. I sat and thought about it for awhile and came up with a solution rather then spending 39.99. I used epoxy to get the blade where it should be and let it dry..... then took a hot nail and poked a hole through each blade close to the center of the shaft.... and then took a zip tie and connected each zip tie to each other forming a ring around the shaft. This works very good and if you need to balance out the fan just place a small zip tie on the center and clip off close to the lock. Now you can use the LOCK as a balance for the fan. GOOD LUCK

Where can I get the motor unit to replace?


The motor is a common item to need replacement in bathroom vents. Replacements can be found just about anywhere that deals with electric motors. You might even be able to get a replacement where you originally purchased the unit. There are dozens of web sites that you can locate a replacement. http://www.electricmotorwarehouse.com is just one. Simply do a web search on replacement bathroom vent motors. Also if the are able to purchase items from wholesale vendors you can get one from Grainger's. It should cost around $20 to $25
Part # 62345-000 (replacement motor part #).


However there is an alternative to replacement. This depends entirely on how handy you are with these kinds of things and how bad off the motor is. If your not comfortable with repairing this kind of thing don't bother with the rest of this.

I hate to replace anything that may be repairable. Unfortunately my friends know this and recently one asked me to look at his NuTone bathroom vent motor before he replaced it.
For the cost in time of an hour I was able to refurbished it.
A good way to check if it's a candidate for repair is to check how much play is in between the shaft and bushings. If you can feel movement then it's best to go ahead and replace it. If the problem is that the shaft is tight and just hard to turn then it may just need some cleaning and fresh lubrication.
The steps are simple. Once you have the motor removed from the vent cage you will see a pair of nuts and bolts holding two brackets in place. These brackets(one on either side of the coil) are what hold the shaft centered and house the bushings. Remove the bolts and the brackets. Be careful not to lose any of the washers on the shaft. These are spacers and need to be replace the same way they went on if they come off. All you need to do is clean both ends of the shaft put a little oil on the shaft and in the bushing and put it back together. If the motor has a plug and not just bare wires for reconnecting to the power supply then it's safe to just plug it in to any outlet for testing after you remount it in the vent cage. You will know right away if you were successful.


Hope this helps.

Turns off when oscillating


Sounds like a loose connection, and when the fan head turns it breaks connection. If you are comfortable opening the motor housing you should be able to find the problem with only visual inspection, the problem should be close to the pivot point on the fan.

Cleaning tower fan


The best way that I found to clean things like this is to find someone who has an air compressor and blow out the unit. But do this outside! The dust is usually unbearable. This is easier than losing small parts and can't hurt it at all!
