Has anyone lubed the motors? I cant see any place on the combustion fan and I do not see any way to get at the convection fan.
Help Please,
Thanks, Stan

You can do a search "Blower Oil"
Most of the motors have little holes on each of end, that you can put some drops of good Electric Motor Oil (I think SAE 20). Sometimes the motors have to be removed, the holes may end up on the bottom of the housing. If they don't have the small holes/tubes, then probably sealed bearings, not much you can do except when they start making noise, replace them.

Here a thread with a picture.
Blower fan?

Stan,
Both fans have oil holes. The combustion fan has an hole right under the little electrical box mounted on the motor, and if you look straight back from that hole, you will see the other. These holes are hat shaped about 1/8 of an inch. The blower also has 2 hat shaped holes.

How does the cover come off the fan in the hopper?

Took off my combustion fan to lube it, I found the oil holes, One is by the squrrel cage fan and the other is under the electric cover box. If you take off the 2 screws and remove the top it is on the left side. It is a fasco b30 blower. My sisters has the Pioneer and its the same motor.

Hope this helps, Stan
