Fan Motor is Done and It's 10 Degrees Outside

Stoker Coal Boilers automatically feed the coal and have controls and pumps just like any conventions boiler. They are intended to be used as a primary heat and often have domestic hot water coils as an added bonus. They can be set up independently or in dual sytem with your existing oil/gas boiler. They can accommodate both hot water base board or steam plumbing.

Perhaps it is just a fuse. Pull out the fuses in the two red fuse holders and have a glance at them (or continuity test them). Is Grainger open on Saturdays, and is there one near you? I believe the AHS fan motors are Marathon B317's, but this Granger motor might just drop right in:

Here is a B317 for comparison:

The motor was already rebuilt once last year, it over heats and blows the capacitor...it needs replaced. closest grainger Ill have to figure that one out, also don't have a gear puller to get the fan off the shaft

if a local plumber had a replacement that wouldve been the quickest fix

closest grainger is 2 hours away

this is the motor

You location is listed as central Pa. That's a pretty big area. There might be a forum member close to you that could help or loan you some stuff if we knew where you lived. A town would be helpful.

Autozone or the like will have a loaner puller. Will the motor on the old washing machine ,thats over in the hedgerow, fit ? There is a solution; you have to look carefully weedhopper.... :ugeek: Sorry, Im just a wee bit giddy this am, I got my heat problem fixed. Is the ahs factory any where nearby? Or maybe a dealer showroom that might sell you one out of a floor model?Is it similar to an oil burner motor, theres a lot of them out there.
