Hi, the best place for you to buy heating and air conditioning parts if you are not a contractor, is Grangers supply. On the motor, you will have a paper data plate with most all of the information you will need. I don't know if you have a Grangers supply where you live or not, but they are very big, and stock any part you may need. If you have the motor out, you can take it to them. This will be your best bet. You may have to go to the Internet and order this motor, or try a local appliance parts house. Just to be honest with you, some motors are hard to find. They do make universal motors that will fit. Take the model, serial, and name of your unit with you also. Please keep me posted on the out come. I would like to here back from you on this I if you cant get one, give me all of the information you can and I will find it for you. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind.
Sincerely,

Use sandpaper to sand the motor shaft.
Then,
Lots of WD40 on the shaft and hub. Wait for it to penetrate.
Then hold the shaft with pliers between the hub and the motor and twist the fan blade right and lft to loosen it.
Try and pull it off.
If that does not work you will need a blade pulling tool.

Heater core or blower making noises


Not the core making noise it is most likely the blower motor or the fan cage attached to the blower motor... most blowers are attached under the dash on pass. side or under the hood at the pass. side firewall area attached by approx. 5/6 #8 metric small bolts opr 1/4 inche or the like, it has a small black vent hose attached to it that also needs to simply be pulled off ...this will give you an idea where the blower is, the fan cage once you pull out the blower and disconnect the electrical plug and ground wire is mounted on the blower motors shaft with a #10 or a 3/8 inch or the like nut retaining it on the shaft.

After about 5 minutes the unit stops working. No sound or even a fan noise. I just cleaned the filter to see if that helps, but it didn't.


Is the fan running and stopping before the unit completely quits?
If the fan quits the compressor won't run very long.
I would start with the fan motor or capacitor.
Shut the power off to the unit, spin the blower wheel to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

Fan does not operate in my 54501 Kenmore dehumidifier; therefore, unit gets very hot.

I'm trying to find out where are the end shields


if you are referring to the fan motor there will be small plastic or metal "plugs" at the motor end right where the shaft enters the housing. use 20 weight oil if the motor has the plugs, if not the motor is considered permanently lubed and does not require oiling.

Running not blowing air


sounds as if fan isnt attached to motor shaft. There is a set screw on the fan cage that if it loosens the shaft will turn inside of the fan not turning the fan( also known as a squirrel cage) You need to get access to the fan motor and see first if its shaft is rotating, if it is see if the squirrel cage is turning if not the set screw located on the inner collar of the squirrel cage needs to be tightened. Thie set screw is more than likly an allen set screw.

I have a wilderness 24ft rv with a colmen air.I have ceilind duck work.what I need e-mailed to me is how to change the motor on the roor.the shaft to the motor is bent.have new motor and fan


Changing the motor is not as difficult as you may think. From the roof, remove the outer shroud of the unit.

1. Remove the front evaporator cover (phillips screws along the edge).
2. Remove the condenser cover from the rear
3. With a 1/8" Allen Wrench, remove the condenser fan. CAUTION, be sure to pay particular attention to the way the fan turns.
4. With the same wrench, remove the blower fan. Again, pay attention to the orientation of the fan.
***If the fans are "stuck" to the shaft, it may be easier to remove the entire unit and place it on a bench to remove them. Secure the fan with a couple of blocks of wood and tap the end of the shaft with a punch and hammer.
5. Remove the nuts holding the fan motor to the separator plate (may have to pull back black foam pad to access. Remove the nut holding the fan to the support.
6. Cut the wires to the motor at the electrical connectors (located inside access panel on side of unit).
7. Remove the two brown wires from the capacitor
8. Re-install the new unit opposite of removal. Pay attention to where the fans were located on the shafts so that they do not rub when you put the unit back together.

Hope this helps,

Jeff
