BL 28-40 blower fan making some noise.
« on: December 24, 2016, 06:22:59 AM »

On my second season now with my 28-40 and last night when putting wood in I notices the blower fan making noise it had not made before. Makes me wonder if I should round up a replacement sooner rather than later.  Where is a good place to find that spare motor?

If its a common motor then Amazon, Ebay, Burdens Surplus Center or even WW Grainger, if not so common then contact your dealer.

Might be worth a look to see if some debris got caught in the squirrel cage, some motors even have a place to oil them.  But ya, good idea to have a spare ready on the shelf anyway.  I keep an extra blower motor, pump and solenoid on hand for my Central. Odds seem to favor it being -20 and after business hours when they fail.

And its a Friday afternoon with a three day weekend coming up. We never break belts on the combines unless itís a Friday afternoon, we donít have one on the shelf, the dealer doesnít have one and it canít be ordered till Monday.

Motor is a Century model SFHP blower  stock number 383.  Zoro has there replacement the 383 for $110.00  https://www.zoro.com/century-electric-draft-inducer-blower-383/i/G0783295/  It seems to be working fine, just the new noise making me a little concerned.

So I ordered the exact replacement motor from Grainger a few weeks ago.  Today I get an email from Grainger saying they canceled the order claiming the manufacturer has discontinued the motor due to government regulations.  This make no sense to me on a blower motor??

Anyone have a source for a blower fan in the US? If not, will ping P&M.

What model fan is it? 1TDP7 is a common one.
Usually Google searching the model # will result in lots of sellers on eBay, Amazon, Zoro Tools etc.
Dodds Bros in Missouri specializes in parts. If you order a fan from them ask for Dayton or Fasco, the Ptech fans they offer aren't as good quality. Great people though. Carry about anything.

 :thumbup: Impossible to get on the phone though if you're me... Never once have I been able to reach them on the phone. Place an online order and just wait. No confirmation email, no tracking number, nothing. Just wait lol. They do have great products and great prices though

Dayton replaced it  with 1TDP7 in case you search for it.

Hi there I Wood check for something in the squirrel cage. I sell the boilers and have not heard of many that have failed. But have seen this before that something got in there causing the noise.
Good luck
