On my max e pro i have white power coming from front area of the motor near the seal plate area. What would caus this. The pump is making a high pitch noise as well.


Your shaft seal has gone bad and water is leaking past the seal, down the motor shaft, and getting into the bearings. The bearings on the motor have started failing and that is causing the squeal. The white powder is calcium buildup. This is caused over time as the water leaks and evaporates, it leaves calcium and any other impurities in the water behind. Had you caught it earlier you could have replaced the shaft seal and saved the motor. At this point you'll need to either replace the motor or have it rebuilt. It may continue to run like that for months, or may go out tomorrow. If your going to rebuild the motor you should do it now before it gets worse. If your gunna replace it, then you can run it as long as the noise doesn't bother the neighbors and the motor doesn't get too hot. Plastic parts inside the motor can actually melt and catch fire. Rebuilt motor will cost ya about 1/2 to 2/3 cost of new motor.

Hi i have a brivis eh 30 unit that comes up with error 65 and 30 the display inside the unit says fan limp, if i reset it from the unit it works for about 1 hr then the same thing can anyone help please


Hi. Here are the error codes for your Brivis Heater. Error Codes 30 - relating to speed sensor, 40 - overheating, 65 - motor lock-out. Usually resetting the unit will resolved the issue. In your case, you already reset the unit and problem came back. This will require immediate attention by Brivis technician.

Our fan on our brivis evaporative cooler is not working. The pump to fill it with water is working and the fuse is fine. what else could it be - the unit is on the roof and I can not get to it.


there is a fan insert with a part Number 17517 this insert sits on the shaft of the motor. my fan is working but not blowing so i went up on to my roof and found out that this particular insert is broken (due to a birds nest )

Hello, I own an Admiral Refrigerator (Admiral Ultima 2000) and the evaporator motor occassionally squeals. If I turn off the refrigerator for a while and turn it back on a few hours later, the fan will run...


Motor bearings are more than likely going out. The fan spins until the bearings heat up. Suggest you replace motor take model and serial number to get part at the appliance parts house Good Luck

Cooking oil in cooler motor?


Not a good move; cooking oils leave a sticky residue as they evaporate; you can try this yourself in a skillet over low heat (or in the oven) for an extended time, motor oil does not. Heat generated by bearings can accelerate this and eventually cause the shaft to seize.
