Now that I know I can buy from Grainger's I'll have to put together a list of goodies and get the brother in law to go shopping for me. That little escapade yesterday taught me well. I'll definitely have a spare motor here next week.
Bill all you would of had to do was take a ride down here and you would of had a new motor for free. They have a 1 year warranty I told you that almost a month ago when you first said the motor was making nose . So get in the car and bring down the bad motor and get a new one. It is that simple You can also pick up the rubber bushing aswell .The old ones
are better then the new ones .The new bushings have two little set screws on them when they loosen up they will take off
either into the fan housing bending the fan or aross the floor somewhere either way not good . The old ones are better
but they do wear out so pick up a few spares if and when you come down . By the way the A.O. Smith motors must of had
a bad run because you are not the only one that got a bad motor . efm knows about the problem because they got a few new ones set back to them . So bill get in the car and take a ride down it is only 60 minutes or less and gas is cheap now Have a Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year .
