I just use good old 3 in 1 oil, however you are going to have a hard time getting it down into the head cylinder bearings, and it is doubtful it will do much on a whine problem.

I would guess you have failed wheel hub bearings

Brakes come apart once a year, to remove rust,inspect &
lube,if your not doing that, it is neglect, & you will have problems

Where to oil machine


You need to lubricate everywhere motion occurs as well as anywhere friction happens (joints and gears). The needle hammer is the most obvious point, but the shuttle friction points are key spots as well. I find it is more important to clean out the dust and debris than actually lubing the parts.. Lots of loose threads and fabric dust seem to accumulate all over and especially where lube is present.. First clean off stuff and then lube in those spots... Also good to replace grease on gears and bearings every couple of years too (more invasive, but keeps the wearing parts healthier)...

My Goldstar has started squeeking... not vibrating... squeeking. Any suggestions? It sounds like something needs some WD-40 sprayed on it.


sound to me like the fan motors squeeking may need a little lube these motors are sealed to protect them from the elements it is possible that a lube port exsists on rear of the motor it will have a little plastic plug in it you can oil it there. a good one to use is zoom spout oiler hardwre store may have it wd 40 not good for this app. wont last. if not an old trick i do is tilt the unit with the shaft and condenser fan facing up and put just a couple drops on the shaft you will see it run in DONT USE TO MUCH CAN DAMAGE MOTOR so be careful this should help.

If I hit play on my magnavox mwr20v6 for VHS it will play for a bit and than sudenly shut down


The problem could be a couple reasons. It could be jammed gears inside. Or the payer needs to be cleaned which they should be done yearly anyways. They make vcr head cleaning kits.
Worst case senario is the motors could be wearing out..

Have a DVD V3500 DVD+VCR player, several years old. Had a power outage last night, now get a high pitched whine on the left side when I plug the AC power in. When it is plugged in get no power/functions.


You will probably need to replace the thing causing the noise for a start. Use a straw if you can't pinpoint which part is making it. Place the drinking straw to your ear, the ones that have a bend in them are best for this job.

My furnace motors need service?


It's possible. Depends on if there are oiler ports in the end bells of the motor.You can usually pull the side panel and look inside to determine.

Use 8-10 drops of a refined machine oil (3 in 1) in each port. Replace the plugs when finished.

Many motors are sealed, and you would need to tear the motor apart to lube. Don't know that I would worry about it if less than 10 years old.

How to remove the fan blade ?


080204 FixUp EQ air blog remarks

To remove fan blade you need to obtain a thin strong probe, such as a Scratch Awl for wood, that will fit without binding, into the cruciform spaces around the plastic collar. Gently insert into space of plastic collar and lever against the spring metal retaining clamp; getting started may require a bit of force, so be careful to adjust and gauge your efforts. The process is to move clamp in small increments, one side then the other, up the collar until clamp is free to remove.

The collar will still be tight, so if you can form your hands into a gear puller form with your finger tips between the fan blades under to the solid portion of the fan ring, pushing thumbs against the Spindle and lifting in as quick a jerk as you can manage to get it moving. Once moving it should be removed easily enough.

The electric motors have two bearing surfaces, one front one back. Both need to be addressed.

I like Breakfree or similar that acts like minor solvent / major lubricator with good thermal properties. The solvent aspect helps clean out unwanted particles and/or old dried lube. The new lubrication is heavy enough to hold up for at least a year; so yearly checking should be scheduled.

On other brands with heavier motors, I've tried greases when I've stripped down the motors even further. So far I've discovered a heavier lube can be hard on start up and need more time at slower speeds until unit warms up.

Something like WD40 is good for penetration and flushing, but IMO too light for sustained duty. There is a lot of spinning and heat over a year's time.

I just torn down a couple of F1's. They've been doing well for a couple of years. But with all air filters/ purifiers, they REQUIRE periodic maintenance. [Had my biggest laugh reading complaints about Oreck air filters; people NEVER cleaned them and complained when they failed.]
Yes, all these small electrical motors will eventually need lubrication, I recommend before 2 years, as one of mine had a frozen (lack of lube) motor in that time.

If you get into the back to try to get at the rear bearing, you may find that you might be considering a more thorough cleaning (I noticed a bit of corrosion). If you do and if that means taking more stuff apart to clean, be well advised of the time involved and the number of wires needing displacement, especially the electronic wire connectors at the front to the circuit board.
So, get a digital camera and take clear pictures (and check them!) Before and During take apart as well as a couple of paper notes about wire runs and placement. I have even used paint pens to letter/number info to the unit.
