    My Regency insert's blower was starting to vibrate a little and so I thought I'd pop it off and have a look-see after 1.5 seasons of use.

    First, that sucker was on there pretty good. So if you are trying this, don't be afraid to pry a bit to get the clips to let go. The wider the blade the less chance of marking up the stove or blower housing.

    Second, it was worth doing. There was a fair amount of dust buildup in both squirrel cages and while I was in there I gave the motor bushings a shot of oil.

    Just make sure you seat it properly when you slide it back under the ashlip. The thermodisk MUST make contact with the insert body in order for the blower to work correctly...

    Thanks, Bob. It is hard to see in there to make sure the sensor is up against the stove body, but the blower came on at the usual temperature, and the blower is noticeably quieter.
