    Also found that for ones with totally burnt bearings they rebuild them at Tri-State Module. I also have since redone one with a good tuner wash and a lubricant. Seems OK after two days of running. Thanks for the reply.

I did it. With proper lubricants, that contain solid particles applied to the bearing, may overcome the wear-out on the bearing and get back the clearance in the range.
The RCA color wheel in question had similar problem and after the procedure it is working like brand new.

Power Button Blinking Red

The number of blinks, called error codes, is crucial in determining what's wrong with your unit.. In this case the color wheel is faulty and needs to be replaced. In that unit the color wheel assembly is Panasonic p/n# TXFEN01RP4S and is available from many sources for about $390.00 plus shipping.
There are some companies like Tri-State-Module that have taken-up rebuilding color wheel assemblies but I can't be certain that this is one of the brand/models they support. If you can have it rebuilt you might save about half the price of a new one...
For your edification in the future here are the blink codes for your Tv:
1 | Load Shortage
2 | Over Volage
3 | Fan Sos
4 | Main 3.3v
5 | Lamp Disable
6 | Gc3fm-Iic
7 | Gc3fs-Iic
8 | Gc3i-Iic
9 | Color Wheel Stop

If I can help any other way just let me know...
Good Luck!
