I have a vintage table hunter fan. Where do I oil it.


You need to oil fan motors on the axis of the motor spindle. I'm not sure what they are called, but on the back of the motor you'll see a small round piece right in the middle of the motor. This is a bearing where the motor shaft spins. On the inside of that round thing is a felt washer or something similar that holds oil in it, and it's usually got some kind of cap in front of it that holds it in place with holes in it to let the oil seep out. If you can find a small bottle of turbine oil, they usually come with a pull out straw thing that is thin and it extends out 6 or 8 inches from the bottle to help get at places that are hard to oil. The motor will have one of these felt things on both ends of the spindle. If you can get at it, soak the felt washers with the oil, but you need to use the right kind of oil or it won't last long, and using the wrong oil could gum up and really mess it up. You can use any electrical motor oil, or turbine oil which doesn't gum up or get thick when its cold. Accessing the felt washers is much easier if you remove the fan and can remove the motor from the fan, but many times you can get at the bearings without taking the fan apart. Some of the older fans actually have an oil access hole on the motor to apply oil, and it will be marked if it has them. Hope this helps.

I have a u2-1287 that runs smooth after a few hours makes noise


most electric fans have steel rotor shafts with bronze bearings.

they "call" them oilite bearings,susposedly because the bronze bushing (it is really a bronze bushing) but called a bearing, is oil impregnanted and susposed to be good for the life of the fan.

that is only true if you expect the life of the fan to be ONLY 18 to 24 months which is the average time that the factory oil lasts.

the oil dries up the longer the fan runs and the shaft makes the bronze bushing begin to heat up due to increased friction and eventually wear the round bronze bushinhg egg shaped.

Try giving your bearings a good healthy squirt of sae 30 wieght oil from a zoom spout-- [pull out straw squeeze bottle refillable oiler.]
I recommend oiling both the front and real fan motor bearings once a month.
This is the most common cause of fan failure.
Because I oil my fans bearings once a month,I still have fans that run from 1940,1950,1960 and 1970. The 1940 GE fan lasted 70 years and is still running strong.

Some newer fans have chinese ball bearings , but the ball bearings also die prematurely from lack of needed oil.
Sometimes, you can pry off the bearing race cover to get oil into the bearing.
a good trick here is to use wd40 if you think you cant get sae 30 into the bearing.
wd40 is a n extreemly light wieght oil that penetrates very well
and gets into places where you think it wont get into .

You can totally wet up a fan motor with either
sae 30 or wd 40 or both without worrying about the electric
motor being harmed by the oil.
the oil,sae 30 or wd 40 wont hurt the motor.

On badly rusted and nearly siezed fan motor bushings , or any electric motor as well, I use first wd40 for penetration and then sae 30 for good long duty lubricatin.

You may have to keep squirting ioil in the motor for 1/2 hour and end up with a puddle of oil under the fan motor, but about 40 % of the time ,you can bring back to life what yo thought was a dead motor. Perserverance is required and faith that you can fix the motor. 40 % of the time you get sucess to one degree or another and 60 % of the time ,its kaput for good.

I got all those fans i mentioned before because other people thought the bearing were seized and shot, and put the fans in the garbage pail where I rescued the fans from.
the bearings were almost siezed but far from shot becaue i got oil in to the shafts and bearings and another 12 to 20 years of life from the fans. However,i do oil them monthly in fan season, which is winter time for me, since I use fans to blow the hot air off my wood stove,

KitchenAid KHTU160KSS Kitchen Hood makes noise


Remove the fan and motor assembly from the hood (the fan motor will plug into the hood housing) and using an electrical motor cleaner (such as CRC electrical motor cleaner available from your local auto parts store) wash the motor and fan as completely as possible, lubricate the end bearings (sparingly) with a very light oil such as sewing machine oil, gun oil or as a last resort 3 in 1 oil. Hope this helps.

Dv55ip empire wall gas furnace, the fan is very loud, needs help what to do.


Buday, it sounds like the blower fan and motor needs cleaning and oiling. This should be done annually and you can do it yourself. This should quite things down a bit.

According to your Owners Manual, here's what you need to do.

Servicing and Oiling the Fan Motor:
The fan motor should be cleaned and oiled once each heating season.
To reach the motor, withdraw the metal shroud surrounding the fan
blade by removing the screws on each side. Oil holes are located
on the top at each end of the motor. Use a few drops of #10 motor
oil. To clean the motor, blow air through its ventilation openings
with a vacuum cleaner or low pressure air source (canned air with a
straw nozzle like you clean your computer with works well).

Im on my 2nd big buddy and both of them the fan has gone out, the first on went in a week, and this one last a couple of months.


fans
1. oil the bearings,sae 30 or wd40 for places you cant get into.
dont take fan motor apart unelse you realy have to.

dont let your fan motor bearings get worn egg shaped from lack of oil.
2. make sure fan blades not hitting or scraping fan housing and fan blades are securely fastened to fan motor shaft.


3.mr heater fan motor is 12 volts DC , so it may have a segmated comutator and brushes.


I dont know because i have not yet needed to take my mr heater
fan motor apart but i have worked on hundereds of ac fan motors
in the past 65 years.
4. keep fan motors from getting wet. they hate water.
5. keep fans clean, they dont like foriegn materials.


Your specific problem: first fan 2 weeks,second fan 2 months.


how much you use them, are you wearing the brushes down?
Getting fan motor wet? foreign material getting pulled into fan or fan motor? off/on switch work ok. batterys good,battery contacts ok? fan transformer 110 vac to 12 vdc good? fan bearings oiled?
need more info to diagnose properly.
all of the above needs to be checked out to tell whats happened.
fan & fan motor needs to be inspected.

Fan motor does not turn unless the blades are turned by hand, the capacitor has been tested ok


These types of fans need to be oiled once every year. Remove the cover and access the fan motor. you should see two small yellow covers at each end of the fan motor. Pull these small covers off and oil the ends of the motor. The small covers are caps for oil tubes that feed the fan bearings.

How to oil a broan bathroom fan motor


The fan motor is pre-oiled and sealed so it can not be oiled if fan motor is squeeling then motor replacement is the only option. You can get replacement motors which is usually cheaper than buying a whole new fan. Will need to know the model # of broan fan. I hope this information was helpful. Please rate the information given. Good Luck and have a great day. Jeff

Motor stopped


hi,

you can try and oil it, unplug it and begin taking it apart, your destination is the fan motor, dust around the motor and I would recommend using regular automotive 10w30 motor oil on that motor, put some in a small bowl and use a small baster or equivalent and oil around both ends of the motor shaft(where it protrudes from the motor) behind the fan blades and behind it, look closely with a flashlight where the motor attatches to the back guard. try get some oil in there and within the motor housing to the inner bearing areas if possible. My guess is that its sealed from the factory, but you can try, those fans are the best on the market and have a long warranty, heres a link to the manual
