SOURCE: Can't remove dryer blower wheel

I would start by taking off the top and checking the belt to see if part of it tore and is hitting the inside of the cabinet. I have not found a real good way to get the blowers out without having to break them sometimes. the part of the blower that you have to hold is access through the front behind the motor. problem is when you turn the motor shaft, the wrench strips out on the blower, then you have to break them, but unless you need a new motor, it should not have to come off.

SOURCE: remove blower wheel

Put a good fittting wrench on the blower nut and hit it with an impact wrench(left handed threads righty lucy). OR do it the tried and true redneck way get a friend to hold a pipe wrench on the pulley inside the dryer, around the back slide a small hammer handle or piece of wood in between two blower blades at 3 o'clock position and slam downwards to pop that mutha loose. The threads are left handed(backwards). That blower does not wanna go easy.

How do I separate the fan wheel from motor shaft on Nutone LS-100 in order to replace the motor?

There are two ways these are connected. One is by a grub screw, that is a screw that when tightened is either flush with the shaft and so hard to see, or is slightly recessed in the shaft which is a bit easier to spot, use an 'alen' or hex key to remove this first. Second way of securing the shaft is to use a 'Morse Taper' where the spindle is made to a taper which causes the taper on the shaft to lock to it. Identify which end of the taper is narrower [you may need to measure the diameter of the shaft to determine this as there may only be a few mm difference in the diameter on either end] then use a hammer and tap sharply from the larger end toward the narrower end..

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
The fan should just be a slide on the motor shaft snug fit with a metal clamp. The Blower wheel (fan) when they fail usually crack the center hub and no longer fit will on the motor shaft sungly so it contacts the blower housing as it rotates. That is why you hear all the noise. If the blower wheel / impeller as you referred to it does not fit tightly on the motor chaft then you will have to replace it. It should rotate in a true non-oscillation pattern like a circular saw blade. Any side to side movement during rotation is cause for replacement.

Here are 2 sources for a spare part:

Im looking for the thread size, off the drive shaft of a power build 10.5 hp

i'm assuming your looking for the nut that holds on the flywheel? if so, measure the diameter of the thread in the crankshaft. you need the diameter and pitch(oor threads per inch) to "know" the thread size. Measure the diameter accurately. then, measure the length of the thread. example, if there is 1/2 inch of thread length and you have 4 threads in that length it is a "8" thread. so if the diameter (overall diameter measured on top of the tips of the thread) is 1/2 inch, then your thread is 1/2-8.

I need a condenser fan blade for a Maytag M6P09D2A portable a/c unit. I can't seem to find that this unit was ever manufactured. It's about 6 or 7 years old. The fan blade is a plastic, centrifugal type...

If you have the old blade, measure the diameter, width of the wheel, diameter of the shaft hole and the number of blades or blades per inch. Go to and see if you can' find a match. If not, e-mail them or look to see if there is a local branch near you.

More RPM Issues for Tools 1) Have old jointer with motor..1725rpm 5 1/2" pulley.. pulley on jointer is 2 1/2" ..what is 4" jointer blade speed ? also looking for right speed for 4" jointer.. 2)...

I had the same problem a while back, But I didn't bother with exact speed, what I cared more about was power and speed, and not bogging down. And I had it running smooth. Of course I have no idea what the pulley diameters were, but it sounds like you should be real close with the 2 1/2 inch at the head and 5 1/2 inch at the motor spinning 1725, should be about 900? So to get 700, bring the 5 1/2 down to 4 1/2, see if it has enough speed/power.
