What I just did was a bit easier, I opened the cover, tilted it up to about 45 degrees and sprayed the WD-40 on the front of the shaft. It fires up fine now. I did notice that the shaft seems to have a very slight bend which is probably the cause.

Remove the outer cover and then the plate at the back of the motor, then lube the back of the motor and the inside of the plate with a lubricant spray. (wd40) put it all back together.

My 40-FAC heater will not ignite and run. The igniter has been replaced. What should I check next?

These models require electrical power to run the blower fan.
When you connect the electrical cord, the fan should turn on, then you should be able to start / ignite the propane. if the fan does not turn on when you connect the power cord, you will not be able to ignite the propane.

Reddi heater sprays and igniter gets hot but heater wont fire up??

If the heater will not ignite, this maybe caused by low pump pressure or perhaps a fuel blockage, or could be caused by too much air from the fan, the hot surface igniter heaters are very sensitive to this kind of problem. Will the heater start with the top cover removed?? If so try closing down the angle of the fan blades a little, but not too much, to reduce the air forced into the combustion chamber. If the heater will not start with the top cover removed, try adjusting the pump pressure, or replace the nozzle. This may not be very scientific, but the solution maybe by trial and error, and can be very frustrating! Hope this helps.

Showing ee 8 wont start

Remove the front cover. Remove the 1 1/2 inch black hose that has a 90 degree bend into the silver box. With the stove OFF stick your finger in the hole and try to spin the fan. It may take a few times but keep trying it should break free. Once free the stove will work. If it spins freely and still gives the EE8 you wll need a new motor.

The fan is "sticking" before firing up. How do you correct the problem? Thanks for the help!

These motors normally use a sintered-bronze, graphite embedded bearing. They are normally pretty reliable but they can get clogged with a combination of graphite and contaminants from the air.
I would first try getting some WD-40 or other penetrating lubricant on the motor shafts if you can see them. It would work best if the fan was running if you can safely get some spray onto the shafts' ends.
BTW, WD-40 is not a lubricant and evaporates fairly quickly so isn't good for sewing machines for example. A resin-free light oil such as 3-in-1 is much better; it doesn't evaporate fast or leave sticky residue when it gets old.

Evap fan wont start on it's own

Is this the fan in the evaporarator or the condensor fan? Most times when fans are bad they fail on there on.

Will not start unless top cover is off

Check that the fan is clean and unobstructed. It sounds like something may be cutting down the air flow. Or the cad eye may be faulty or dirty.
Hope this helps.

Need suggestions!!!

I have the same problem and this is caused by one of the fans not coming on when the TV boots up. If you look behind the TV you can see two of the fans without even removing the cover. The one on the left is a large fan that cools the bulb. This is the one that has died on mine. If I CAREFULLY stick a small screwdriver through the fan grate on the back I can give the fan a nudge and it will start up. Then the TV comes on OK. If you have extended coverage then you should be fine - but if they tell you the part is not covered - it should be easy to replace the fan. The problem is finding one. I found one place that sells it for about $25 but they have no pictures - so I am not sure which is the right fan. Let me know how you made out with the repair guy.
