I've already bought 4.
2 for me, and 2 for my brother.
Correct and exact replacement for your DVC 500 distribution blower.
All numbers and manufacturer match.
May fit others.
Great price!
Or use to circulate air.
LOTS of other really neat stuff available in catalog , and a PA. CO. !!
Both transactions were smooth.

I already have them. They are the exact Dayton p/n.
They'll sit on a shelf for a while!
Can't beat them for $30.00 each.
I signed up on their site, waited a few days and they emailed me
a coupon for 15% off my first order over $50.00 !!
When I received the 2 fans, i also received a 10% off coupon.
I used that later to by 2 more fans for my brother.

You convinced me.... I just ordered two.
I do notice these have the old-style motor on them. The new Distribution fans for the DVC-500 have a Sealed-bearing FASCO motor. But for $30, it doesn't matter if they only last a couple seasons.

Has anyone actually installed & run one of these fans ? I replaced mine last night & the new one made a moaning noise which varied in intensity with the fan speed control - sounded like some sort of harmonic oscillation - caused by the stove's speed control circuit. So I wired it directly to an outlet - no more noise - lot more air - Even on high, the DVC's controller must still be applying some speed control. All P/N's are exactly the same, but Grainger themselves note: Not for use with speed controllers? :shock:

I'm leaving it in, directly plugged into the main. I always considered the distribution on the DVC a bit lame - now my problem is solved! 8-)

from the electric motor warehouse website: "Note Regarding Speed Controls:
With more and more people using wood burning stoves during heating of some issues surrounding the speed controls that vary the air output from centrifugal blowers. On a single speed blower, a speed control wired in series with the hot line will allow the user to control the speed of the blower. Many speed controls will not lower voltage below 60 and will not allow the wheel to slow to 0 RPM. Also, the combination of a blower and a speed control can often result in what is called “harmonic noise” – strange vibrations and/or noises in the customer's unit. Slightly increasing or decreasing the blower speed can sometimes eliminate this problem – but it is often not 100% removable. "

Did you get them from Colemans?
Good price?, good service? /
I have not tried mine.
My brother always said my blower was much quieter than his,
maybe this is the cause.
The fan cfm is quoted at approx 135 cfm. Other stokers claim approx 265 cfm.
I was NEVER happy with the air volume.
Please let us know how the direct connection works out.
You have my undivided attn. Thanks.Tommy

Still very interested in how this blower hook up worked out, :?: ......Thanks.....Tommy

Over a month now running with the fan wired directly to the outlet. In this configuration, the fan is running @ full rated voltage/speed - more air for sure. I'm leaving it this way. :D
