    I have an Econoburn 100 built in 2008. The fan has been taking longer and longer to "spool up" to speed as the weather gets colder. I was thinking about pulling the cover and blasting the fan with compressed air. Can I oil the thing as well or should I just get a new one?

    Have you changed the fan speed. When the speed is reduced, the starting torque is diminished. Or you might have a defective starting capacitor.

    Might want to search I think there was a post about fan problems from that vintage.

    Best be busy about getting a replacement motor on hand. Those types of things never seem to break during normal business hours.
