Fan motor

Dick Adams

Need to replace an Uppco, Inc 079272 motor/fan in my
window exhaust unit.

The motor/coil is 2x3x3 with two screws for mounting
to a bracket and a two prong plug on a short line cord.
The shaft is 2-3/4" and is attached to a fan with five
3-1/2" radius blades.

I have googled my butt off and have come up empty.

Any help will be appreciated.

Try these guys http://www.irproducts.biz/
They do carry some uppco motors and fans. Click on motor kits and they have
a photo that is about what you describe.

I dunno whether Uppco is the exhaust unit manufacturer or the motor
manufacturer, but generic motors are widely available. I replaced my
g.f.'s old bathroom exhaust fan motor because the new bath exhaust fans
are of a completely different form factor.

I readily found a new motor of reasonably identical specs. I had to
shorten the shaft, mill a new flat on it, put a plug on the wires, and
reuse her old fan blades.

If it's just a window exhaust fan, I 'spect everyone and
they uncle will suggest you just buy a new unit.

Add me to such masses.

But if you really need to replace only the motor, off
the top my head, try www.grainger.com. If you can't
find it there, call their 1 800 number and describe
what you need.

If you go to Grainger, be prepared to pretend you're a business. They do
not sell to individuals.
How hard is that procedure? I need a coupling for a fractional horsepower
motor, and they sell one of the ones I want.

Do they check to make sure it's a registered company, or can a guy use the
name of the company he's never recorded anywhere?

I don't know whether they check, but they threaten to. Here is an
excerpt:

"Please be advised that Grainger is a wholesaler, not a consumer
retailer. As such, we sell to other businesses. If you are a new
customer to Grainger, you may be asked to provide business
identification (U.S. Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), copy of
business license, etc.) before we ship your first order."

I opened an account from work to buy a motor for personal use. They may
have verified the business online without my knowledge, or they may have
called and spoken to someone else there without my knowledge. But they
didn't follow up to me with an email or phone call, and I got my motor.

yes, all the ones I have been to have actually checked. McMaster-
Carr, however, doesn't care and offers online ordering and shipping to
your door.

If the fan still hums, take it apart and clean it out with
solvent, and then re-oil it. Many times, fans can be saved.

Contrary to widespread belief, anyone can buy from Grainger; at least
that's been my experience.

I used to buy from them before I had a business (as a handyman). They'd
ask me if I had an account, I'd say no, and they'd just charge me.

Now that I have an account, I found the last time I bought something
there that I could put it on my account instead of paying for it there,
which I did, which was pretty nice.

Made From Pears: Pretty good chance that the product is at least
mostly pears.
Made With Pears: Pretty good chance that pears will be detectable in
the product.
Contains Pears: One pear seed per multiple tons of product.

That would be my first impulse as well.
