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.
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 .
