The motor has bushings that need to be oiled once every month or two. If you e-mail to miller@healthyti.com they have supplementary cleaning instructions available to email back to you. Those instructions include oiling instructions.

Brush wheel not spinning


it can be belt or clutch failed. put the vac on its side and on the bottom there will be either two push clips or 2 screws remove them or push them and pull the bottom off. then when this is off you will see were the belt is for the spinning brush. if the belt is still on then the clutch has gone in the motor if the belt has gone take out the broken part and get a new belt, fitting new belt you need to remove the spinning brush it is either clipped in or slotted in , clipped is push the clips out to the side and lift the brush out, slotted it will just pull out. clean out the brush before putting back in also check the brushes bearing to make sure it moves easy as a failed bearing do to carpet string etc can burn the belt, any belt that has been burnt in this way should be removed and changed as it will damage the hover if still used after this part has been cleaned replace all parts and then turn on dont and it pluged in mains while you are doing this and dont use until it has all been fitted back..

Hunter Air Purifier making screaming noise


Most likely the problem is a bad bearing in the fan motor.

Hi my old Honeywell 13520 has acquired a periodic squeal. I am sure it is a motor issue. Any way to tune up these little motors? (Brushes, etc..)


Usually if the motor is squealing, the bearings are dry no lubrication and worn. If you have oil ports you can oil it and quiet it down for a while. Most motors now have self lubricated or oil impregnated bearings, which you can't lubricate. It costs as much for somebody to replace the bearings, as it does for a new motor. Most people replace the motor.

The fridge fan is whining


The bearings in the fan motor are probably going bad. A new motor will solve the problem.

I have an Oreck air purifier model (air 4000). The power light is on but the fan will not turn unless I put it on high speed and manually push the fan to give it a jump start for it to start running but...


I tried that solution and it did not work due to the worn bushing. I went on line to CSH incorporated and ordered #534 Open Ventilation Fan & Blower Duty motor. The motor is a ball bearing motor rather than bushing, and is an exact replacement for the Fasco motor on the original. The repair is easy and a cheap repair at cost of about $67 dollars for the motor plus shipping. The unit now works great again.

How tight should a whole house fan belt be?


just tight enough that it does not squeel or squeek on start, any tighter and you put undue stress on the bearings. (Approx 1/2" deflection on the longest span)

Motor makes a whining noise, but otherwise seems to operate as normal.


It's probably a bearing in the motor, (dry or worn) if the whining starts getting louder then you will need to have the motor replaced.

Sounds like Motor or bearing is failing.
You could order parts but you will find it less expensive to replace unit. Than trying to repair.

Please rate. Hope this helped. If i can help you further let me know. Good luck!

Squeek


Hi Wendie286,

I just answered your other posting which described a low "humming" sound. A squeak is different. Then it's very likely the motor. You could try a _very_ small/light application of oil to the shaft where it goes into the bearings, but that's probably a short-term fix.

If the unit is over 10 years old, the motor will probably need to be replaced at some point. Below is the relevant portion of my response in your other posting.

========================================================

[fan motors]... are the only moving parts and do eventually wear-out. If it's still turning, it shouldn't be a problem - - if it starts turning slower and slower, it's time to plan a replacement motor. I have a couple, but I think FixYa's terms forbid me selling it to you directly. Recommended solutions in this case:
1) If you still know an active dealer, you might see if they have any, or if they know of a source (Ecoquest no longer supports them with spare parts).
2) You could probably find them on the web, though the last time I did this (in December), I couldn't seem to find them; I didn't have a lot of time to spend then.
3) Find another XL15 (maybe on eBay) and cannibalize a fan from the older machine (note: different versions of the XL15 had different motor mounting configurations, so me sure you know what you're getting - maybe ask for a digital picture of the prospective purchase showing how it's mounted).

If you write back with more details, I may be able to offer more precise guidance. If you want, I could try web-searching again.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions, 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.

Thanks for using Fixya.com,

Jon

Fans not working


Yeah, I had this happen to one of mine, the motor bearing siezed. Even though mine had run out of warranty and I kludged a fix for it Oreck replaced it anyways after inspecting the unit.

Temporary kludges that worked: light machine oil on the motor bearing, flipping the motor over internally, turning the unit on its edge so that it rides on a 'fresh' part of the bearing, running the unit on 'high' while I was out of the house.
