This unit was made by AdobeAir in Phoenix which has gone out of business. You're in the same boat as all the people looking for replacement motors for their MasterCool MMB10 MMB12 and MMB14's.

You can try to have the motor rebuilt at a motor repair place but I have no idea as to the cost.

I posted this to another question regarding the MasterCool units.

Unless you can find an HVAC shop with a NOS motor for this unit you will not find a drop in replacement. Even if you do get lucky and find a NOS motor be prepared to pay nearly as much for it as you would a whole new evap cooler.

That said, there are motors out there that will work, but you're going to have to make them fit with custom mounts.

It's still a little spendy, especially if you want two speeds like the original motor had, but you can get out for $80 or less if you're willing to settle for one speed (on/off).

boatandrvaccessories.com has a "Packard 40066" compressor motor for $69 plus $13 shipping. It may work but has only one speed.

Basically what you're looking for is a "48 frame", 1/8 hp, direct drive, 110-120v, 1075rpm, 1/2" shaft diameter and around 3" in length (to give you flexability when mounting), "totally enclosed" or "open drip-proof" housing (NOT "open"). Rotation can be either CW or CCW as you can mount the motor on either side of the housing and some motors are reversable. If you've got the skill to custom make some mounts then you can probably fudge some of these specs. The ones you can't change are the 1/2" shaft and the RPM. Do not exceed 1075rpm. The blower assembly simply can't be made to go much faster in that housing and if you try you will overheat the motor and burn it out very quickly (trust me on this one!). Most of the cheap motors I've found are 208-230v and I just don't see the point in having a small 220v PORTABLE evap cooler, that's just dumb.

After a LOT of online research I've found the following motors that would be a suitable replacement, with all the above mentioned specifications. I'm sure there are more, but cross referencing this information for someone not in the business is tricky and time consuming.

Good reading for selecting a replacement motor:

I suppose that if you found a smoking deal on eBay for an "Open" type motor you could try it, but I doubt it would last long and make damn sure that ****** is grounded well.

Kenmore washer model 110.20722990 fills with water, but will not run, lid switch is good. what should I check next?


did you jump out the lid switch to make sure it's good,flip up the top console,unplug the lid switch and stick a wire into the two outside holes in the narness where the lid switch plugs into and see if it runs.one more thing do you hear the motor running but the agitator isn't moving or is it dead after it fills,if you hear the motor you have a broken motor coupling,if it's dead you can try taking the pump off and then start it to see if something is in the pump or the motor is bad,if it's not the pump you'll have to see if power is going to the motor or not or if the timer is bad but usually it's the lid switch.when you have the pump off grab the motor shaft with plyers and spin it,i've had motors that jambed and moving the shaft makes it run again,sometimes the motor runs all the time other times the motor would have to be changed out,waych video on how to pull pump off

I have a Amana ssd21sl, the evaporator coil freezes up, The fan motor above does not come on, but have 115v to it, Is fan motor bad.


You really need to measure the Ohms resistance for the motor.
OL means the motor is dead
0.000 means the motor is short circuited and is dead
160 to 300 ohms the motor is good

Garage door motor dead


Keep checking for loose wires. Nothing about changing the gear should cause the motor to stop running. Check the wires on the start capacitor and follow the white wire from the motor and make sure it is connected.

Sharp ec-14twt6 won't start


if the motor spindle spins easily when turned by hand, the motor brushes need replacing. if it doesn't, either something is stuck in the turbine, or the motor is siezed. if the motor is siezed, it needs to be replaced.

Don't know if you can find something that will work, Eureka doesn't make these motors available thru them. Try some local shops or a place that sells small motors.
