deadbodyman I had the cooling fan on my big welder burn up and man they sure were proud of them, they wanted 150 I think ,we had an old fridge at the shop that didnt work that we were using to store parts in so I pulled the cooling motor out of it and fabed (cobbled) it into the welder, its been almost 10 years now and still working great..

Irelands child If a good oiling doesn't work (it probably will), just pull it apart and look for a similar fractional or sub-fractional motor on line. I tried to find the link I used a few years ago, but couldn't spend enough time. That one had virtually hundreds from a couple bucks on up to a lot of those greenbacks

deadbodyman also ,just like a car, theres a filter (screen) in the tank ,if it starts having an uneven flame or sputtering and smoking just clean the screen and it'll run like new again.I have to lube the fan and clean the screen on mine every season..and a new spark plug once in a while....someone threw it out 10 yrs ago and I've been using it ever since...

[email protected] Many of those heaters use a cheap "mono bearing" motor and can be rescued in most cases by punching or drilling a small hole in the rear cover and adding lube oil. The oil felt gets dry and doesn't lube the shaft properly.

You may have to spin the motor manually to get a start but once the oil gets to the shaft it will spin like a new one.
