Question about Coleman Heaters
Most likely your motor is bad from your discription sounds like bearings. try giving it a spin with power off. If it feels TIGHT and wont turn to easly Bearings are dry might be able to free up w lite oil NOT WD40 or other penatrant, this wont last but a day or 2. OIL is the real cure. If it turns try pulling themotor shaft out and pull up down on the shaft at same time. If your fan hits the motor front (shaft side) when pushed back or drags on the front whe pulled out too much THRUST. Need Motor. A little play is normal if its enough to make a noise CLICK CLACK when pulled OUT THEN UP & DOWN too much, and bearings are worn out need motor.
If it smells HOT... Proably need a motor. Although a mechanical problem bearings loose or tight can also cause a HOT SMELL it could be electical. Check and if you change motor change capicator too.
PLEASE return and grade me accordingly. If unclear or need more I need to Know more. THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK.
