Fan motor making noise. Can I get a replacement fan?
If the "noise" is a fluttering sound (like fan blades are engaging housing or other internal structure), you need to trace this and clean or adjust it internally so it doesn't hit stuff. Cleaning it periodically (monthly) should be a given.
If the fan motor itself is grinding/losing a bearing, you will need to replace the motor. Note that there are different models/configurations for various models, you need the right one. I used to buy mine direct from EcoQuest, but they've changed owners in the last year, don't know if they still sell them as parts.
I think you can find motors on the Web, but you'll pay a premium price for single units, better to buy a used purifier off eBay/craigslist or find one at a garage sale, and cannibalize it.
I think I have one fan motor left in-stock (new); I can check to see if it's the right version if you want. I'd want $30 for it, plus shipping - you can likely do better than that if you're willing to hunt.
If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions about any of my response(s), please let me know before rating me.
If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly. My goal is to earn a "FixYa" rating from everyone I help.
