Fan Noise

PostBy: rberq On: Mon Feb 04, 2008 7:56 pm

I have a Harman Mk I stove with the stock blower. I have a rheostat to run it at low speed, but it tends to whine and transmits the whine and vibration to the stove body which amplifies it. The metal-to-metal connection to the stove is less than ideal. Can anyone suggest a simple way to remedy this? I believe I saw a previous post about mounting the fan to an external box of some sort, and using dryer vent hose to connect to the port on the stove. But I can't find that post.... Suggestions, anyone?

I got this 3-speed blower fan to connect up to my Harman TLC-2000 for $24.00 at Lowes last month...Works great!
(just hook it up to your stove with a few duct fittings)

The fan (either your Haman or any fan) can be separated frfom the stove & connected via short duct fittings.
