PostBy: GoodProphets On: Fri Feb 10, 2017 10:28 pm

My motor coupling just tore. looks like part # 33766
I have a 2011 efm 520
I have no clue where to get this part, it looks like set screw on the reductor side backed out and tore the coupling.

Any help that you anyone can provide?
I don't have oil burner in, so I would need asap.

I can drive tonight or tomorrow to come get it.

Gonna start up the fireplaces so we don't freeze.

Thanks for any and all your help

Thanks

I could give you a used one if you can't get a new one from Scrapper today. I don't know where you are in Lancaster Co. but I'm just across the river in York Co. I will be out this morning but should be back at about 1:00.

Send me a PM if you need help.

Thanks to Rob R, StokerDon and Scrapper to pinpointing the journey to find a coupling.

I got one, just have to see if it fits now!!! Apparently there are quite a few diff ones.

Next time being the old one with you to match. :)

I like the old style much better than what they use now.

Got the part on and all good to go.!! HEAT was restored yesterday evening.

Yeah this I think is the older style with the rubber in the middle.
Gonna have to get at least one more for back up. I can assume with heat that it deteriorates over time.
I think it was Scrapper that said it is a very common replaced part.

I think the motor is a more common point of failure than the coupler. I have a spare motor, and a spare coupler. If your EFM is your main source of heat, I suggest you put a few parts on the shelf.

I've always been a big believer of spare parts on the shelf. I had a spare stoker motor and a spare combustion blower for the Harman but luckily never needed them. I'm sure I will stock some spare parts for the EFM. So motor, coupler, shear pins....what else?

I can't think of anything else that could suddenly go on a EFM? The newer gearboxes go bad but I think you will know about it before it stops working.

That is all I have for EFM parts. I have an oil boiler that works fine, so I am willing to wait for UPS if necessary.

If the EFM was my only source of heat, I would probably keep a spare pot auger as well.

Yeah I got a motor a couple years back. And of course shear pins. I think second year in I went thru about a dozen or more shear pins.
Musta been a bad batch of the black rocks!!!.

Yeah I will pick up a few parts like another coupling or two and possibly any other that may be good to keep on hand.
Im thinking a gear paw maybe and also some of those cotter pins and spread pins or whatever they are called.
