    Help! I have a buck stove, inserted into the wall--and when I plug it in, the fan sounds like it's out of alignment and going to crash through the wall.

    Unfortunately there are no repairmen in my area--any tips on how to fix this myself?

    Welcome. "Buck stove inserted into the wall..." Please explain. Is this a freestanding stove in an alcove or an insert installed into a fireplace? Was the stove or insert just installed or has it been fine until recently?

    If you could post a picture that would also be helpful so we can visualize what is going on.

    Yep, Some Bucks have a motor with a shaft sticking out both ends, My Old Stove (Model 27000) only had the shaft sticking out one side. It originally had the 9 blade fan, Once when I replaced the motor I bought the 5 Blade, Mistake, Had to pull it again and swap the 9 blade back on... You may have to scoot it out and see what's up..

    Hi everyone!
    First time posting & tagging to a thread. I’m trying to replace a blower motor on a Buck Stove 27000 installed in 1984 that looks similar. It’s never had anything replaced. I want to make sure I’m doing this correctly and looking for a good step by step video. Does anyone have any good links?
    Thanks!
