Feed motor rattleing and squeling

Feed motor rattleing and squeling

PostBy: campbeach On: Tue Dec 28, 2010 10:44 am

I have and older Pioneer Serial # 1335 and my feed motor make noise at different times. I took it a part this am and cleaned it and put it back on. It is better but every once in a while it starts rattleing and squeling for a few minutes and then stops. Any Ideas and does any one know the Grainger part number on the motor as all I could find was 398 scribed on the motor. I have a grainger near so maybe I could pick one up. If not I would order from Leisure LIne.

Thanks for any help.

Low on oil/grease in the gear box, the bearing might be drying out, did you oil that? etc....Could be fines under the stoker grate....

That is an old stove going by the # you gave . If that is the original motor you got some time on it . If it is in a basement the bearing on the motor tends to get rusty when sitting . You can try adding a few drops of very light oil to the bearing ,usually that quiets it up . Another thing to look for is the carpet or feed system could be binding if it hasn't been cleaned in a few yrs that would cause the motor to strain more. The motor is made in NY for us specifically, so it is proprietary not so much on purpose but there are different cuts on the gears to make them quieter also it has the threaded output shaft hence the added cost . The ones in Grainger I believe are made in China by the thousands for I am not sure of the application and I don't believe they have a threaded output . If you want to try to get something to work from there they are 1.5rpm output w 120in lbs torque .

I took gear box apart and that was well lubed but the noise is coming from the bronze bearing which I cleaned and put some silicon on. It seems to be quiet now but not sure how long. The motor is $108.oo which seems like alot for it from a dealer. I can slide the carpet in and out with no problem. I was afraid that oil would collect dust and bind it also. The stove is in my living room with is pretty clean and dry.

That is correct if you put too much oil it will collect more dust . So use a very light weight oil and wipe off any extra . The pricing is based on volume if we were able to order them 50,000 at a time and made over seas they would be a lot cheaper . You can imagine buying them in quantities of 1000 at a time hurts the cash flow the way it is. Sounds like you fixed it hopefully . Thanks ,Dave
