Pioneer Blower Motor

A Coal stoker furnace or stove controls most operations including automatically feeding the coal. They are quite similar to any conventional oil and gas units and easily operated for extended periods of time. They commonly use rice coal but may use larger sizes like buckwheat. They can be used as primary heat, supplementary heat or have a dual set up with your existing oil/gas furnace.

I bought my Pioneer from Jerry almost 10 years ago and it still works great. A few years ago I installed the coaltrol and it works even better. blower motor quit after about eight years, I purchased locally a new Fasco motor to replace it. It lasted until today (naturally it's 20 out there). The shaft is extremely hard to turn even after I lubed it. Two weeks ago it was straining and I lubed it and the shaft freed up, not this time. Is coal dust getting in there somehow? The Fasco motor I used was a B75, CFM 75, 3000rpm, .59 amps. Has anyone else had this problem? Can another motor be used to replace it? any ideas would help tremendously. The winter is just starting.

75 CFM ? Where is that used?

You know when people say it was "better back in my day"?

They were right.
