Question about Viking Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Are the squirrel cage rotors fastened with a conventional thread direction or are they reversed threads?

They are loaded with dust, appear to be designed for easy removal for cleaning, but I can't get the fastening nut to loosen. Before I do damage by using a 3 foot torque driver, it would be nice to know if I am muscling in the correct direction. Also, we'd be delighted to hear from someone who has successfully removed the squirrel cage rotors. Many thanks and Regards, Michael

SOURCE: I bought an older unit Viking Ultra line range

I took the motor out of the range hood. There is a set screw holding the squirrel cage fan in place which I unscrewed enough to slide the fan part off. I then boiled the part in a deep pan with lots of dish soap. I then brushed away the remaining debris. Avoid using dishwasher detergent which is effective but seems to erode the aluminum.

I just loaded the bobbin and when I sew the bobbin thread is wavy Is it a tension problem or did the bobbine not load properly or do I have the bobbin in wrong?


Do you mean that the thread on the underside of the stitching is wavy? if so, yes it sounds as if the bobbin thread is not under tension.

Take the bobbin out of the bobbin case and reload, make sure that the bobbin is in the right way and then hold the bobbin still and press the thread tail into the tension spring until you hear it click in. Usually the thread will come off the bobbin, through the tension then reverse direction in a "v" shape.
tally_girl_43.jpgI think this is your bobbin case. So bobbin would go in and rotate anticlockwise, and thread would go into the tension spring south, then reverse direction north so rotary hook catches the thread.

Just make sure thread is fully into the tension spring, pull backwards on it and it should stay in the tension device if its in properly. If not, it will come out.

If you can't get a resolution then the tension spring may have failed, you can buy replacment bobbin cases from Brother, a local dealer or

I trust this helps you resolve the issue, often its just threading up and a bit of a break away for five mins, then fresh eyes, rethread carefully, checking the manual directions, and issue will resolve.

Take a long time for blower motor to get up to speed


The first thing I would do is to clean motor and squirrel cage. It would be best if you would remove it and take it somewhere that you had a air compressor to blow out motor ports and fins on squirrel cage. Most of the time you can remove by disconnecting modular plugs and removing two or more screws on rail that squirrel cage slids on.
If you can get it out you can use a fine wire brush to loosen dirt and dust from fins on cage then use air to blow out as much as you can.
Your motor may be getting worn so check the bearing by grasping cage and see how much it will slide side to side and if it moves more then about1/8 inch then you are going to need to replace it before much longer. Also make sure that the rim of squirrel cage is not rubbing on blower housing and if it is then loosen motor mounting screws and adjust ,then retighten screws.
I hope this helps you. Thanks

Are the nuts holding on the blades reverse threaded?


If a blade, when viewed from above, rotates clockwise, it will have right-handed threads. This is because the shaft is turning to the right, and the resistance imparted on the blade will tend to tighten a right-handed fastener. If a blade rotates counter-clockwise it will have a left-handed fastener. I don't know this mower, but this is a universal thing.

The bolt, screw, whatever that holds the squirrel cage in place has broken off our unit. What size and type do I need to get to replace it? It's on a shaft with one flat side, and there is a place for a...


Use an Allen Head Screw. There are different sizes/threads that are used. Your best bet is to take the wheel with you and match one up. I've worked for several HVAC contractors and, if someone had stopped by our shop with a blower wheel and needed the screw you are looking for, we would have gladly helped them and probably would not have charged them anything for it. :-)

Don't know if it's left or right hand tread to remove cooling fan


Good point, some of those fans are left hand threads, If you can't turn it to the left to get it off, try it the other way, My Nissan is left handed. The squirrel cage should tell you which direction is spins, the threads should be opposite?

The squirl cage on the dryer of my model LSE7806


Howdy,

Absolutely should be positively "locked" to the motor shaft. There should be a set screw in the collar of the squirrel cage mount. Either it is missing of has loosened. Please tighten (or replace) this set screw. Also, it is very IMPORTANT to make sure that if there is a flat machined surface on the motor shaft, that you align the squirrel cage (and set screw) so that the set screw will seat firmly and squarely against this flat surface. This design ensures that once properly aligned and set, that the squirrel cage will follow the motor shaft faithfully. Also, it is recommmended to apply some thread sealant (Locktite) to the threads of the set screw so this will not happen in the future. Vibration can be the cause of this.

Good luck,

J

The nut on the shaft is a conventional right hand thread nut. Righty tighty lefty loosy. For future reference, if Yamaha uses a left hand thread on a fastener, there is always a line cut through the hex to warn you it is left hand.
