You may want to contact Master Parts, they may not have the bearings. However, they may have that motor at a reasonable price. You can contact them at 800-446-1446 or online at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps you.

How do you seperate a kohler motor from generator on a miller welder?


if by asking this im assuming the generator is face bolted to motor , if this is so , to save from having another front bearing , the gen stator is directed attached to motor shaft , on the far end under end bell cover is the end of shaft , a long bolt goes thru gen shaft to screw into motor shaft , MARK/photograph all the wires you unhook helps a lot when puting back together

Sounds like you have a bearing failure, eithe big end or crank shaft bearing. When they go they quite often knacker the piston and cylinder too as it can put them off square. Remove cylinder and the problem will be easy to locate as you can see the big/small end bearings and check for cylinder damage. Often the cost of repair far outweighs the value of the equipment.

115,000 btu reddy heater, 5 hrs used in sprayfoam-grinding environment. stopped working. when plugged in, only hums for a few seconds, then stops. how can i fix that?


First, remove the top cover. Inspect for a varmint nest. If clear, manually spin the fan. If it does not you either have a broken rotor that is binding or you have a bad bearing.

If it spins freely, apply power- see if the motor runs with the top cover removed.
If YES, replace the top cover. Its possible that the top is binding the fan.
If NO, the start capacitor is defective. The cap on R115 is internal and is not servicable.

this is a common problem with this motor, what has happed is the end bell has gone bad.(holds the front or rear bearing) you will need to find out witch one and replace it, good luck finding one, so look for your local pool pump motor repair guy in you area. and have him rebuild it. i have them used in stock, but i do not ship . the total repair cost is 75.00 with a free shaft seal.. if'n your handy and you take it apart and find that it has the oring in the back end bell.. there is a guy selling them on ebay, look for the pool pump repair puppy. there like 2 bucks with shipping. thats a kool fix !.. jay Florida .. oh and good luck. cuz it's kool to fix it yourself !

Will the fan on the reddy heater not run if the ignighter is bad? When i plug it in the fan doesn't run.Do i need to replace the motor?


The fan motor runs regardless of the igniter as it is also the fuel pump. Possibly you may need to replace the motor but try this first. Remove the top section of the heater this exposes the fan motor, try spinning the motor by hand,it should spin freely if it does not try some light oil in the front and rear bearings of the motor and turn it by hand until it frees up. You may need to do this several times!! Now that it is spinning free put the heater back together and try it out. If it does not work a new motor is in your future. Hope this works out for you.

Hello i havent Used my ready heater 60000 btu since last winter. It was working fine when i unpluged and emptied it...now when i plug it up i hear a hum and nothing else no blower or anything....could ude...


Hi,
The fan motor is setup...
Tear it part and get some WD-40 worked into the motor at the shaft end... then when you get it spinning freely... get some light motor oil worked into the bearing...

Works best if you can tip the heater back so the WD-40 and oil naturally run back into the motor...

When I plug the unit in, the fan turns very slow, and I smell fumes, but the unit does'nt turn on


I am not able to give you a solution, but will put forth some possibilities for you to check.
  1. Spin the fan manually. No power, please. If the fan spins freely, and no grinding is heard or felt, then the starter capacitor or starter relay (whichever equipped) is defective. Internal capacitors are not serviceable. Replace the motor.
  2. If the fan does NOT spin freely and/or binds, either the rotor (air pump) is broken or a motor bearing is bad. The rotor is replaceable, the motor bearing is not serviceable.
If you decide to repair the heater as described then the air pump pressure must be reset, in either case, in order for the heater to burn properly. It is a simple process. Follow this link for instructions

I had the same problem. I took the nozzle head off and blew through it with air. I also blew through the air line, this is the one that goes to motor. It has worked fine ever since.
