If the motor has bad bearing no grease is going to work get the motor replaced
I don't believe it has a bad bearing. I just want someone to tell me how to apply the grease to lube the motor
Well unless ther is zerk fitting grease won't go in most motors if the have lube point are oil ports that oil is placed down them and the lube bearings
The man who sold me the trailer showed me how to turn off, unplug and pull out the motor. That part is easy. I just don't remember what to take apart and where to put the grease.
the trailer is a 1969 model, so the furnace is old!
Well the bearings would be on shaft of motor at each end if they have non seal bearing just wipe small amount of grease in them but you may have to take motor apart to get at it
I was hoping for detailed instructions on how to do that
If you can upload picture then maybe I can give you that
when i used the spray silicone, I sprayed it on the ends and inside with the straw, it helps and the heater works but its just not enough lube
I'll go take some pics
ok please advise
do you need more pics?
That motor has bearings that you will have to totally remove out of squirrel cage to get at bearings
level of difficulty?
about a 6-7 on scale of 10 depending if shaft is stuck on squirrel cage
will you be able to give detailed instructions on how to dismantle and lube bearings?
Remove the bolt that hold motor to housing and then flip and undo shaft screw and slide motor out
Then you have to access bearings from motor itself
I'm having trouble getting the motor out. It has 3 bolts holding the motor in place
can you see in the pic?
Yes three bolts and one on shaft on other side
when I undo the bolts it won't slide out
Like I said if it will release from shaft
this is frustrating. can I take the motor to someone to get it lubed?
Yes thats what I would do or have it replaced
