    The combustion blower has been very noisy as of lately, i think the bearings are failing.

    Anyone have a source for a reasonably priced replacement?

    Thanks
    Tim

    What year is yer empress? Enviro switched out to a 1.61amp motor a couple years ago. Just about any 3000 CW motor will do but it should have a enough amps to power the thing under load. I have used the Englander motors in a pinch and they work fine. Perhaps you could switch out the bearings for $10

    Either a 06 or an 07 empress.

    Didn't really check it out yet to see if i could change the bearings. I will look into that later

    Going to try to source some bearings locally tomorrow. Still looking for a source for reasonable priced parts though Had the stove for 4 seasons now so i am sure little things will start to go here and there

    Found bearings locally for $5 each, replaced the outter one because i was pressed for time (using the maintenance shop at my old job) I will replace the other bearing when summer hits and i can take my time.

    I have a part # available for bearings incase anyone is interested.

    I would like that part number and any helpful tips. I've had mine somewhat apart and am positive it's failing bearings. Any info is greatly appreciated!
