I used a 'farm duty' motor for the replacement motor on my AA260.
The motor needs a lot of starting torque to get the big fan turning, and the auger moving.. A standard duty motor kept stalling and overheating.
I think I bought it from Graingers. then found an additional spare motor on Ebay.
Awesome set up. I got the number for the motor from a thread you had posted. It is a discontinued model but I found one online. It met all the specs and is farm duty with high starting torque. In my search for motors online, I found that Grainger is way overpriced. There are so many better deals out there.
I ordered my type M barometric damper from Patriot supply. Their prices are great, and they have many parts for HVAC. They definitely beat out the local plumbing supply stores as far as price goes. I like to use the local plumbing supply store's, but I am not going to pay premium when I can get it cheaper. They are going to have to compete with the online stores, else I'm going to start filling my plumbing needs through online instead of staying local. The benefit of the local store is they are convenient, and I can get most of what I need, but warehouses cost money to run, along with trucks too (logistics, etc.) so that is no excuse to why they can't adjust their prices to compete with the online stores.
Do you know what is the replacement model for the solenoid? Thanks for the info LS.
Thanks all for the replies. I hope to be online tonight. And I will post more pictures. We shall see what happens, I hope all goes well, but am prepared for the worst.
