My little Zephyr Aricooler fan's motor is in the process of dying. The coil gets hot enough to burn your skin in about 15 seconds. Very toasty. I gave it a good soaking in insulating varnish, but no joy.



If I had to guess, I'd say this little motor was used in lots of dime store fans, like Chromevers and Barcols, but I'm not sure.

It would be a good candidate for a first rewind if I could figure out how it comes apart.
I thought I would ask around before I got there.

Cheers,
Bill

That's a motor ? Looks more like a choke coil.  Probably cut off the rivets take it apart.

It appears that the winding is on a
plastic bobbin.


Does it look as if you were to
remove the two rivets that are on
each side of the core, closest to the
bobbin, that just that part of the core
that passes through the bobbin
could be seperated from the rest?

I have seen other single pole motors where that is way they come apart. This seems to be more like a choke coil where the plates are assembled one by one.

I suppose since it's already dead, I can't harm it any by experimenting on it.....

Cheers,
Bill

What I see on modern motors is a separate

core piece that goes through the bobbin.


That makes assembly much easier.  Though


your motor's core is not pressed together,


maybe the core pieces are fingered (interlaced)


together at the bottom corners.

I have a couple of those motors laying around and you're right about them. Unfortunately, there's no way I can make one of those fit my fan. My motor is a bit smaller.
Thanks,
Bill

OK, this is what it looks like now. I don't think it was ever meant to come apart, but come apart it did!

I'm still in the hunt for a motor as this won't go back together very easily even if I rewind the bobbin.

Cheers,
Bill

You're 1/6 of the way there . Next I would unwind the coil counting the turns. Put back in same size wire. Attach new lead wires. Clean and spray the laminates. Put it all back together and you have a new motor.  This is an excellent project model to learn some things about  the winding process.

After experimenting with this motor, I've decided it's not repairable.
I'm still looking for one.
Barcol, Chromever, etc. One of them will work.
Thanks,
Bill
