Pioneer Combustion Blower

PostBy: farok On: Mon Nov 07, 2016 10:07 am

When I took the combustion fan off to oil it before firing up my stove this year, the fan didn't want to spin when I tested it. A little encouragement and it took off, but it feels as if the bearing may be starting to go, so I'll be getting a replacement ready just in case. I understand it's a Fasco B30 blower fan, but I also see a Dayton 1TDN5 that should fit just the same. The Fasco has a sleeve bearing and the Dayton has ball bearings. Is one quieter than the other? The stove sits in my living room so a quieter fan would be nice. Any other reason to pick one over the other? Thanks! -Chris

Get the Dayton, you'll be glad you did. 8-)

Ball Bearings and PSC motor is a slam dunk.

Shaded pole motors do have a finite life but before you dump it try lubricating it with

See the LL videos on U tube and my post on Pocono power vent. Mine was slow three years ago and now I lubricate it religiously and she is still going. Of course, the Dayton motor is better but money is money. Lubricate the distribution motor as well. Blaster makes an equivalent so you may have a can around.

I had oiled it and it is a little better, but I still had to coax it to run at speed. I'll save the motor as an emergency swap, but I think best to replace it. Thanks for the suggestion on oil/grease for the future! -Chris

The steel shaft can rust when sitting over the summer. Best to oil all motors in the spring as well. Do not use the PSC dayton for the convection fan. They do not play well with the speed control.

Depends on many environmental conditions mostly.
