I have an old hide a vector kickspace heater, recessed and vertically installed in the kitchen of the house I just bought. I called Embassy industries and thry told me that the model is 30 yrs old and they have no information on it at all...Go Figure...The fan is getting progressively noisier. I assume it needs lubrication...how and where can I lubricate it? If thatis not the case what else can I do besides replace it?
I fixed mine today but it is not what you think. It's a rubber grommet that has dropped out of the squirrel cage fan and allows the rotating fan to rub on the housing. I also thought it needed oil,but after three years of noise, it finely dropped off the motor- shaft, rendering it non functional. So to access this I took the cabinet out to trouble -shoot.This was easy in my case because I engineered the cabinet as such for Hide-A-Vector servicing. My fan has a square punched hole in the fan side metal that indexes a small rubber grommet with a center hole.The hole accepts the motor shaft while frictional compression holds the whole mess together.Take it apart to work it. Carefully re-insert the grommet in the sq. hole being xtra careful not to push it inside the cage.Once in place,drip runny epoxy glue through the open fan fins so some settles around the grommet.Use a light to verify target grommet.Once cured, put some on outside as well. Let that fully cure. Re-install on shaft so fan spins freely. Footnote: My model ----HAV 48/ HAV 88--- 8 yrs. old

Re: Noisy kickspace heater
It probably is a sealed motor but if you have access to it you may be able to oil it with a very thin oil - like 3 in one oil. the bearings are undoubtedly oil-lite which is a porous bronze bearing pressed into the end bells of the motor. for fractional horsepower motors I'd go to grainger dot com to see if a replacement can be found.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Using Vector MasksLet's look at the
different ways that a vector mask can be used, created, and/or edited: ·Add a vector mask that shows or hides
an entire layer ·Add a vector mask that shows only the
content inside the shape that has been created by a path ·Edit a vector mask that is already
created ·Remove, disable, or enable a vector
mask ·Convert a vector mask to a layer mask
(rasterize the vector data) Additionally: ·To add a vector mask that hides or
shows an entire layer, select the layer from the Layer palette that you want to
add the vector mask to. ChooseLayer>Add Vector Mask>Hide AllorReveal All. (If these
are grayed out, make a copy of the layer first.) ·To add a vector mask that shows the
contents of a shape, select the layer to apply the mask to in the Layers
palette, select the path from the Paths palette, and chooseLayer>Add
Vector Mask>Current Path. ·To edit a vector mask, click the
vector mask thumbnail in either the Layer or Paths palettes. Edit the mask
using the Shape or Pen tools. ·To delete a vector mask, select it and
chooseLayer>Delete Vector Mask. ·To enable or disable a vector mask,
select it and then chooseLayer>Enable Vector MaskorLayer>Disable Vector Mask. ·To convert a vector mask to a layer
mask, chooseLayer>Rasterize>Vector Mask.
When draining the coolant, keep in mind that cats and dogs are attracted by ethylene glycol antifreeze, and are quite likely to drink any that is left in an uncovered container or in puddles on the ground. This will prove fatal in sufficient quantity. Always drain the coolant into a sealable container. Coolant should be reused unless it is contaminated or several years old.
Disconnect the heater return hose at the thermostat housing.
Disengage the ECT sensor and engine coolant temperature sender wiring connectors.
Disconnect the upper radiator hose from the thermostat housing connection.
Loosen the mounting bolts and remove the housing from the cylinder head.
Remove the thermostat and gasket from the housing.
Clean both thermostat gasket mating surfaces.
Position the thermostat gasket properly onto the housing. The gasket must be in place before the thermostat is installed.
Install the thermostat into the housing by first turning and then locking into the recess of the housing.
Position the thermostat and housing onto the mating surface of the cylinder head. Install and tighten the retaining bolts to 14-21 ft. lbs. (20-30 Nm).
Connect the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing connection.
Connect the ECT sensor and engine coolant temperature sender wiring harnesses.
Connect the heater return hose to the thermostat housing.
Connect the negative battery cable.
Fill the radiator and operate the engine until it reaches operating temperature. Check the coolant level and adjust as necessary.
Power lead from the heater plugged in a socket turned on.
Gas on to house
All valves below heater in on position.
If they have controllers in the house turn on (key pads marked with Rinnai logo in kitchen or bathrooms usually)
There is a turbine that spins in the heater when a hot tap is run. If the heater has been sat for some time not operating the turbine might have stuck. Run the hot tap and keep it running, using a hammer give the centre pipe connection under the heater a firm hit a few times(not too hard). This might unstick the turbine.
Wall by kitchen counter, or end of kitchen counter, near cabinet or counter on same side of motorhome as water heater, as well as a switch on the monitor panel itself. Some hide them on underside of kitchen cabinets as well.
