Crazy azz day at work today that went just like this
Saw this on my way home-I need one for my truck...........................
Thank you,been a frantic summer and fall,I am so far behind on everything!!
Or... you can get a tee shirt!
Today was the replacement combustion fan day for my Accentra FS. I futzed around and futzed around with the old fan. I had soaked it in PB Blaster since Sunday and even heated it up yesterday and applied the Blaster. Today I tried to break the set screw loose. Got out my oxy/acetylene torch out and got it nice and hot. No joy. Even stripped out an Allen wrench...not the screw, the wrench. Screw was so hot it took the temper out of the wrench. Finally it dawned on me that I was pretty much wasting my time because I had a new motor and a new fan. Out came the Sawzall. 10 seconds later the fan was off. Anyways, the new assembly is in, wires zip tied properly and the fan shaft and set screw properly coated with high temp Never seez.
I put the stove back together and fired it up. Man, what a difference! My wife walked in the room and I asked her how she liked the stove. She asked when did I try it. I told her it was running now. I don't think either one of us realized just how loud the old blower was!
Where did you order the parts?
On your way home from Happy Hour???
Right off Amazon. Companies name was Pellethead. Total cost was $84
Noise levels creep up gradually as bearings and such go south..
Last winter our stove started having issues with the fan speed controls on the board...and the fan noise was at times annoying due to harmonics because of the failing speed control.
After building and installing the custom controls the sound level is soooooooooooo much nicer.....
Glad it all worked out well....
As in Warren?
I've bought various spare parts from them on ebay, they sell as the esesstoves. Prices are good and never had an issue so far.
Hmmm a Horman owner buying spare parts...Must be for a friends stove.
Dont hate us cuz you aint us.....
