If this is a newer peice of equipment it doesnt have oil port most don't anymore. The factor uses a grease or oil that they say last for the life of the motor but plan on replacing the motor in about 5-7 years. They are making furnaces and A/C cheaper than ever. Make sure there is'nt any debre covering back of motor or anything like that and you will be fine for now. If this helps please rate me and do a testimonial.

Projector is powering off


Typically when electronic devices just shut themselves off it's due to some type of overload, the most common are thermal and current. If you can power it back on again after the device has set for a while it's generally thermal overload (device is getting too hot) because if it was current overload you would have to change some type of fuse or reset some type of breaker. Has the fan stopped operating? Next time you power it up, keep a close eye on it. If it doesn't run at all or if it stops during operation theres probably something mechanically wrong with the fan. If it runs the entire time it may not be running fast enough the venting ports could be clogged with debris. If youre technical enough you could take it apart and blow out all the venting ports including the fan (if you do this BE SURE TO BLOCK THE FAN WHILE BLOWING AIR THROUGH IT, IF YOU DON'T YOU RUN THE CHANCE OF RUINING THE BEARING IN THE FAN AND THEN YOU'LL HAVE TO REPLACE THE FAN!!!) also a lot of these small venting fans have a small oil port for them, it's usually a sticker that says oil on the center of the fan. Use a light weight oil, just a small drop or two and it's generally a good idea to try and get it running before sealing it up just so you don't fling oil all over the inside of the case and on boards but be careful not to touch any of the circuitry and don't leave it powered on too long, just enough for the fan to get to operating speed and make sure it's not leaking oil, if you run it for too long with the fan off you could overheat the circuitry and damage something and make a bigger problem. hope this helps :)

HI, My Kenmore Air Conditioner Model# 76129 - turns on, makes a sound like it is going to work but the fan does not move. Thanks


When a fan malfunctions, the problem is usually loose or dirty blades. If the fan won't operate or if it's noisy, cleaning and tightening will usually fix it. Here's how to repair a room air conditioner's fan:
What You'll Need
You'll want to have these tools on hand to repair a room air conditioner's fan:
  • Vacuum
  • Soft cloth
  • Screwdriver or Allen wrench
  • Long-blade screwdriver
  • Wrench 20-weight nondetergent motor oil
  • Volt-ohmmeter or multimeter
Step 1: Open cabinet and locate fan.
Step 2: Clean away any debris with vacuum and soft cloth.
Step 3: Check fan blade on motor shaft for looseness. Blade is fastened to shaft with setscrew at hub of blade.
Tighten setscrew with screwdriver or Allen wrench. If air conditioner has round vent fan, tighten fan on motor shaft by inserting long-blade screwdriver through port in fan.
Fan is installed in its h­ousing with bolts, and vibration can loosen these fasteners. Then tighten them with wrench.
Step 4: If fan has oil ports, apply several drops of 20-weight nondetergent motor oil (not all-purpose oil) to each port at beginning of cooling season.
Step 5: If you suspect fan motor is faulty, test it with VOM set to RX1 scale. Disconnect terminal wires from terminals, and clip probes of VOM to wires.
If meter reads between about 3 and 30 ohms, motor is functioning properly. If meter reads either zero or an extremely high number, replace motor.
To remove the fan motor, remove the fan, the power wires, and several mounting bolts. Install the new motor with the reverse procedure .bobicehouse_59.jpg

Where to oil the outside condenser fan?


Most modern condensing fan motors do not need oiling and in fact have no oil ports. If you have an older one then there is probably 2 yellow "****" on the bottom of the motor that you pull out and drop in a few drops of oil. You have to remove the top of your condenser unit where the fan motor is mounted to and turn it upside down to access the oil ports.

I think my ac window unit's motor/fan needs oiling.


'Oil Ports' are a thing of the past. Mfc's quit putting them on motors several years ago - mainly - so they could sell more motors - don't you know.

However, sometimes you can still "oil the bearings."

A trick I've done (with some success) is to take an electric drill and drill a hole on the hub (if possible) and squirt oil down the hole (on top of the bearing) and see if it will free up the motor. It's worth a try and like I mentioned (above) it's worked for me before.

good luck!

How to remove fan motor


Fan

When a fan malfunctions, the problem is usually loose or dirty blades. If the fan won't operate or if it's noisy, cleaning and tightening will usually fix it. Here's how to repair a room air conditioner's fan:
Step 1: Open cabinet and locate fan.

Tighten setscrew with screwdriver or Allen wrench. If air conditioner has round vent fan, tighten fan on motor shaft by inserting long-blade screwdriver through port in fan.

Fan is installed in its housing with bolts, and vibration can loosen these fasteners. Then tighten them with wrench.

Step 4: If fan has oil ports, apply several drops of 20-weight nondetergent motor oil (not all-purpose oil) to each port at beginning of cooling season. Step 5: If you suspect fan motor is faulty, test it with VOM set to RX1 scale. Disconnect terminal wires from terminals, and clip probes of VOM to wires.

If meter reads between about 3 and 30 ohms, motor is functioning properly. If meter reads either zero or an extremely high number, replace motor.

To remove the fan motor, remove the fan, the power wires, and several mounting bolts. Install the new motor with the reverse procedure. However, if the condenser coil must be moved to get the fan out, do not try to remove the motor. Call a professional service person.

Hi my old Honeywell 13520 has acquired a periodic squeal. I am sure it is a motor issue. Any way to tune up these little motors? (Brushes, etc..)


Usually if the motor is squealing, the bearings are dry no lubrication and worn. If you have oil ports you can oil it and quiet it down for a while. Most motors now have self lubricated or oil impregnated bearings, which you can't lubricate. It costs as much for somebody to replace the bearings, as it does for a new motor. Most people replace the motor.

Unit comes on, then throws breaker


Fan should start at the same time as the compressor. If the fan is not running the pressure could build in the system and cause the breaker to trip. Your fan motor may need replacement, or lubricated if it is not a permanently lubricated motor bearing type. Oil ports will be located on the fan motor for front and rear bearings . There may be a dirt plug in the oil ports.

Fan not working


THE FAN MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE OILING PORTS ON THE MOTOR. IF NOT, THE MOTOR NEEDS REPLACED. IF THERE ARE OILING PORTS ON THE FAN MOTOR, TRY SPRAYING SOME WD-40 IN THEM AND THEN ADDING SOME LIGHT MACHINE OIL TO THE MOTOR. THE OILING PORTS ARE SMALL HOLES AT EACH END OF THE MOTOR WHERE THE MOTOR SHAFT EXITS THE MOTOR HOUSING.
