    Hey guys I recently purchased a home that came with two Blaze King Stoves. One being the KTJ and the other being the Blaze King Princess. Both of the stoves are in mint condition except for the KTJ. The blower on this stove has unfortunately stopped working. I was curious if any of you might know of a good place to pick up another blower for this stove? Possibly even an aftermarket blower? I did find this one but I figured I would ask before purchasing it.

    Thanks!

    That is mighty pricey for what looks to be a fairly generic blower. Can you remove the blower and post some shots of the motor and motor label? For a replacement I would go online and look at Graingers and McMaster-Carr for starters. Another option could be to adapt a stock Englander blower by making a simple adapter plate.
    Or take it to a local electric motor shop and ask if they can fix or replace it.

    Yea, I thought it was a bit pricey too. I'll see if I can't get a pic of the label on the original.

    Thanks!

    Don't discount that fan just yet, try putting some oil in it and breaking it free, sometimes all they need is to be oiled and the fan will spin freely.

    Alright guys here we go with the pics. There isn't much of a label on this blower but the round blower face is 2" and the plate that attaches to the stove has screw holes that are 2" apart. As you can see it's been used for quite some time. Seems to be pretty generic though.

    I think you need to go to the link that I posted.. That looks like nothing special to me and you should be able to find a blower that will fit with very very little modifications if any at all..

    Looks like an old Franklin inducer motor. I'm thinking the Englander blower would be a near bolt on. And it has a cord + 2 speeds.

    Thanks again!
