My Blower motor on my Marine Air has frozen

Postby jwrape » April 22nd, 2014, 2:24 pm

I have qa Ocean Breeze Marine reverse Heat Pump system on my Mariner 28'.
Over the winter the blower motor has stopped. I can turn it by hand but the motor is too stiff to spin by power.
Does anyone know how to fix this?

I have no idea on your ac unit, but on other motorized things that froze up, I removed the motor, seperated the halves, pulled it apart, cleaned the bushings and shaft, lubed the bushings with light grease, reassembled and they lasted forever.
Worse that could happen is you'd have to buy a new motor. Hopefully, it's a standard motor you can buy at Granger store.
Thanks

I am hoping that works cause the OEM one is $295 plus shipping from Ocean Breeze
