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.
Ball Bearings and PSC motor is a slam dunk.
Very quiet, half the wattage, half the heat...runs way cooler, smoother and longer than junkie cheap ash OEM shaded pole motors w/ bushings.
