E1450 Blower Motor Replacement
« on: November 11, 2019, 09:17:21 AM »

This is the second year in a row I've had to replace the blower motor for the season.  There doesn't appear to be any lubrication ports on the blower, yet the bearings / motor keep seizing up.  Has anyone else experienced issues with the blower?  The original blower lasted only 5-6 years, replaced it last year, and again this year.  The blowers worked at the end of the heating season, but wouldn't start up.  I will be removing the blower and storing it inside next year if I can't figure out what's going on.  Each blower costs $180, so I can't afford to keep replacing them.  If anyone knows where I can get a comparable motor for cheaper, please let me know.

Does the manual show if there are any oil ports?  My manual shows me where to look for the oil ports on my Classic Titanium Edge 550 HD blow motor.  Can your dealer offer any insight into the cause of the problem?  Roger

That fan looks like a regular Dayton 1TDP7 which is all over eBay. But I could be wrong.

My fan has oil ports on it too. They were located on the underside of the fan motor, so had to remove a couple of bolts to take tje fan off to access them.
