I can hear my convection running at various speeds, does the combustion speed vary too?
If this does burn out motors, are there other types of motors I could switch too? I think the Coal-Trol does a great job.
Since you have a Reading stove w/ a TriBurner, you would of already had to add a separate combustion blower in order to be able to use a Coal trol. Most liklely it is a shaded-pole motor...inexpensive to manufacture and expensive to operate, while being the most short lived motor...guess who is the winner and who is the loser with this arrangement.
The wise consumer would look to find suitable replacements in PSC motors types.
Uses half the energy and lasts twice as long as the shaded-pole motors. Ball-bearings seem to be standard on these also.
