    The bearing on my motor is squealing like crazy. Was wondering how much of a task is it to replace? Dealer won't be able to get out till next week some time. I stripped the stove down, cleaned, wire brushed, scraped. Cleaned out the fines. Tried to to spray the bearing with someWD-40 and it worked for about 5 minutes, and she's back to squealing. Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Pretty straight forward. May be cheaper to go to Gleason avery or Grainger for replacement

    wd 40 is the absolute worst thing you could use on a bearing .

    Picked a motor from my dealer today, threw it on, and no more sqealing. It was an easy fix. The motor was covered under the warranty still, so no money outta my pocket = good day.
