AXEMAN 130 / SOS

PostBy: GRIFFINW On: Sun Dec 16, 2012 8:06 pm

Hello Axemen,
After a week end away I came home to find that a bad noise and after some
exploratory surgery found that my fan had shed a blade and the sleeve
bearings and shaft had taken a beating. Made a new shaft and found
some hardware store bearing and it seems like it will make it through
the night. Any suggestions on the quickest way to get a fan and set up fan box
or at least a fan and sleeve bearings.
Thanks,
Frank

If I was in your shoes,I would remove the blade opposite
the missing one,and order parts from Axemann tomorrow.

You will have to order the fan. The shaft and the bearings can be made to work.

IIRC, the fan is balanced on the shaft as an assembly.

Frank, keep a few spare parts, because Mr Murphy says that failure will occur on a Friday night, in a blizzard, when the power goes out, and it is a Holiday weekend...and you will play hell trying to get the old one off anyway
Maybe on a REALLY lucky day...but I like to replace the assembly. :shock: :idea: :!: ;)

The fan is not balanced on the shaft. All adjustments are yours.
