    Same exact problem.

  • Anonymous Nov 23, 2008

    I Have five bathrooms with this same fans and they have all done the same thing. The motors have so much torque that they strip out the the cheap plastic fans. You can buy the replacement fans from electricmotorwarehouse.com or ventingdirect.com. This is obviously a problem that has existed for 10 to 15 years. Part numbers are 5901A-000.

    I have the same problem. The fan assembly slides down the shaft and starts rubbing on the housing. Once this happens once, it will do it again much easier next time. I did try a very crude method that didn't work. I put some "Gorilla" glue on the shaft at the bottom of the fan (once I pushed it back in place)--hoping it wouldn't allow the fan to slide back down, but it did not work. Now--the shaft is hard to get to so it could be that I didn't get the glue in exactly the right place. I'm thinking about trying it again--this time being extra careful to put the glue in the right place and allow a day or so for drying.

Place the push nut below the blower wheel. Don't bother with the top. The centripetal force tends to push the wheel down. The push nut in this position will prevent this.

    Sorry to be so naive, but what is a push nut? On my unit there is just the spindle that spins and then the plastic squirrel fan that gets pushed onto the spindle. There is nothing retaining the fan other than the fact that the top of the spindle has grooves in it. I took apart the unit a couple of days ago and thought I was a genius for fixing it by sliding the fan back to the top of the spindle. But here it is 2 days later and it's making the same loud noise :(

This happened on my fan too and the motor burned out from being stalled all the time. Try putting a spring retaining ring (E-ring or similar from someplace like smallparts) of the appropriate size on the shaft below the blower wheel to keep it from sliding down. Nutone should have done this themselves to begin with! (but I guess it helps them sell motors...)

Pursuit XL scooter, rubbing sound during right turns...


My first guess is that you have either loose lug nuts(5)on one or more of the wheels, or you have loose screws(6)that hold the wheel rims together as these have split rims. This is more common on scooters with flat-free tires as the tire and the foam insert will chafe against each other and produce a rhythmic sound as the wheel rotates. Try tightening all of the lug nuts first and see if that helps. If it persists, try removing the tire by removing the 5 lug nuts and pulling it off the axle. You'll see six bolts that hold the rim halves together. Re-tighten all of these and install the wheel to see if that cleared the noise. Note: The real wheels have a key-slot in the axle and a key which slides into this slot to hold the tire to the axle. Be careful not to lose the key when you slide the wheel off, and be sure to get the key back in the slot when you install it back on the hub. Here is the page for your scooter. Click on the owners manual and scroll down to page 37 for info on tire removal.

I have had to replace the blower wheel on my Maytag Performa Dryer twice in the past 2-3 months. The wheel when removed looks as though it is being ground down. Could there be something else wrong?


Just check that the dryer vent out the back hasn't been pushed into the machine. Sometimes when the dryer is pushed against a wall the vent can be pushed back into the machine somewhat, which will in turn push the blower wheel housing forward and deform it slightly, causing the blower wheel to rub on the housing.

Hi haw can i change my wile Bering?


Park the car on level ground. Put the transmission in park and set the parking brake. Jack the car up and place the jack stands underneath the frame of the car.

Use the tire iron to remove the lug nuts from the wheel and pull the wheel off.

Use the ratchet set to remove the mounting screws on the disc brake caliper. Pull the caliper loose and then slide the disc off of the wheel studs.

Use the ratchet to loosen and remove the wheel hub mounting bolts located on the backside of the steering spindle.

Pull the entire wheel hub assembly off of the steering spindle. Take the assembly to a machine shop and have them use a hydraulic press to press out your bearing (the bearing is pressed into the hub assembly and is too big for at-home extraction).

Press in the new wheel bearings and then reassemble the wheel hub by mounting it on the steering spindle again.

Slide the disc back into place on the wheel studs and then remount the caliper with the mounting bolts. Slide the wheel back in place on the studs and tighten down the lug nuts in a star pattern.

Lower the car off of the jack stands or move on to change the other side's wheel bearings as well.

  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Remove the anti-lock sensor retaining bolt and remove the sensor.
  5. Remove the brake drum retainer and the brake drum.
  6. Remove the hub retaining nut dust cover.
    NOTE Do not use an impact gun to remove the hub retainer nut.

  8. Lower the vehicle until the wheels are supporting the vehicles weight. This will properly load the suspension.
  9. Tighten the spindle-to-control arm bolt to 52-79 ft. lbs. (70-98 Nm).
  10. Tighten the tie rod-to-spindle bolt to 75-102 ft. lbs. (102-135 Nm).

Noise coming from my blower sounds like something is loose


HI.The blower fan or squirrel cage is rotated by the blower motor shaft, thus, forcing air through the heater core or A/C evaporator core and into the passenger compartment. it is housed in the blower compartment shroud. If the motor shaft becomes unstable, this will cause the cage, or blower wheel, to rub against the shroud, or housing. This will cause the noise you are hearing. The shaft screw may be loose, or the shaft, itself, may be faulty as well.

In most cases, replacing the blower wheel will correct this issue.It would be wise to inspect the blower housing for any loose mounting screws before replacing the wheel.

Front brake rotor on 1992 Ford Ranger 4wd with auto lock in


With Automatic Locking Hubs
  1. Raise the vehicle and install safety stands.
  2. Remove the wheel lugnuts and the wheel and tire assembly.
  3. Remove the retainer washers from the lugnut studs. Remove the automatic locking hub assembly from the spindle.
  4. Remove the snap ring from the end of the spindle shaft.
  5. Remove the axle shaft spacer
  6. Being careful not to damage the plastic moving cam or thrust spacers, pull cam assembly off the wheel bearing adjusting nut and remove the two plastic thrust spacers from the adjusting nut. CAUTION: Do not pry on the plastic cam or thrust spacers during removal. Prying may damage the cam or spacers.
  7. Using a magnet, remove the locking key. NOTE: If required, rotate the adjusting nut slightly to relieve pressure against the locking key, before the key can be removed. CAUTION: To prevent damage to the spindle threads, look into the spindle keyway under the adjusting nut and remove the separate locking key before removing the adjusting nut.
  8. Loosen the wheel bearing adjusting nut from the spindle using a 2-3/8 inch Hex Locknut Wrench T70T-4252-B or equivalent.
  9. While rotating the hub and rotor assembly, tighten the wheel bearing adjusting nut to 47 Nm (35 ft lb) to seat the bearings. Spin the rotor and back off the nut one-quarter turn (90 degrees).
  10. Retighten the adjusting nut to 1.8 Nm (16 in lb) using a torque wrench.
  11. Align the closest lug in the wheel bearing adjusting nut with the center of the spindle keyway slot. Advance the nut to the next lug if required. Install the separate locking key in the spindle keyway under the adjusting nut. WARNING: Extreme care must be taken when aligning the spindle nut adjustment lug with the center of the spindle keyway slot to prevent damage to the separate locking key. The wheel and tire assembly may come off while the vehicle is in motion if the key is damaged.
  12. Install the two thrust spacers and push or press the cam assembly onto the locknut by lining up the key in the fixed cam with the spindle keyway. CAUTION: Extreme care must be taken when aligning the fixed cam key with the spindle keyway to prevent damage to the fixed cam.
  13. Install the axle shaft spacer.
  14. Clip the snap ring onto the end of the spindle shaft.
  15. Install the automatic locking hub assembly over the spindle by lining up the three hub assembly legs with three pockets in cam assembly. Install the retainer washers.
  16. Install the wheel and tire assembly. Install and tighten lugnuts to 135 Nm (100 ft lb).
  17. Make sure the final end play of the wheel on the spindle is 0.00-0.08 mm (0.000-0.003 inch). the maximum torque to rotate the hub is 2.8 Nm (25 in lb).
