    Hello,

    I do have a similar problem only with an Arctic Air swamp cooler.When I turn it on it just makes a buzzing sound, but if I reach in and spin the squirrel cage by hand, it starts running and will run intil it gets turned off. I have taken the motor apart and greased the shaft but that doesn't seem to have helped at all so I figure that it's just time to purchase a new motor. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Bear.

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.

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.

SOURCE: Do not know how to work/maintain swamp cooler

Evaporative coolers are only for dry climate conditions or deserts. They cannot cool as much as central air or air conditioners which have compressors and refrigerant. The mechanics are simple requiring a water float valve, pump, spider (water distribution), aspen wood pads, blower, belt, motor, and switch. The unit must have a water supply to replenish the system due to evaporation. Your system may have a float valve which you need to adjust to shut off when the water pan is full. Floats can be adjusted by loosening the pivot screw and moving the float up and down to adjust the turn off level or by turning the float to extend or retract the length changing the water shutoff position. You do not want the water to be so high it flows out the over flow tube but the water should cover pump base. Plug in the unit and turn the switch to pump if you have that option on your unit. This will engage the pump to force water from the pan up to the spider to saturate the pads with water. After a few minutes turn the switch from pump to low or high cool. New aspen pads will have an distinct smell which will go away after a few days of usage. If you do not have a pump setting turn the switch to low or high cool which will blow warm air at first then start to cool down. You may also have a fan setting which will blow outside air without any additional cooling if the outside air is humid. Occasional maintenance is to make sure the pump is pumping water and the filter basket is clean and all the spiders are working with water flowing freely. You can use a flexible wire to force it in a spider tube to clean it if it is clogged. You may want to change the water after a month to keep the system cleaner from slime and calcium. At the end of the season disconnect the water supply and drain the water pan blowing out the water line if the winter is below freezing. Replace the pads if they have calcium build up or dry. Flush the water pan out and clean the Add some oil to the pillow blocks which are the bearings at each end for the blower. Check the belt and pulley for excessive wear. Cover the unit with canvas to prevent cold air from coming in during the winter. Next summer season all you have to do is uncover the unit and hook up the water supply.

Need parts, pump for a ED630J adobe swamp cooler in las vegas, nevada


A swamp cooler PUMP is not really model specific. They are basically small submersible pumps. Contact ANY swamp cooler dealer in LV, tell them you have a 4500 CFM unit and need a pump.
The pump part number for this size cooler is: PN 110436 (there are several alternates)

Contact these folks and tell them what you need:
National Cooler ' Swamp Cooler
3046 Vegas Dr.Suite 1
Las Vegas, NV 89106
(702) 638-8800

If they can not help you... just look under cooling and air-conditioning in the yellow pages and find a dealer near you. This pump is common to nearly every brand in LV. You can most likely buy one at the local home depot, menards, or lowes.
There is also a Little Giant CK-5 "UTILITY"pump that is used for swamp coolers.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Cleaning should be a regular task (at least yearly). Fan is probably hitting something, or the crud attached to it is hitting something.
Sometimes you just have to brave it. Consider this: You can't break what is already broken. Use tape: Apply all screws to tape -- don't loose them. Do not bend the fins -- air needs to freely flow past them. Do not puncture one of the pipes -- freon needs to stay in them.
Above all: Hum a tune while you clean and wear a smile or you might upset the cooler.
Just because I did not tell you to unplug it does not mean you should get stupid. Wear your thinking cap and a smile :o).

Frequent short cycles of the Mastercool swamp cooler


Short cycling can also occur in a thermally protected motor if it is overheating. If the other solution did not work, make sure the belt on the motor is not too tight or too loose. A handy person can check the amperage with an amp probe to make sure it is in limits. The adjust the pulley to put it into specs.

Vulcan-Bonaire : summer breeze


This unit is a cooling unit only. I don't know what switch you are looking at but I don't think it's for the evap. cooler(swamp cooler). I am in the Phoenix, Arizona area and it's very common to have a evap. cooler and a seperate heat/cool system as on the hottest days the evap. cooler doesn't cool enough. I hope this helps. Please give me a positive rating. Thank you.
