GE Motor Question?

A friend of mine just replaced a head wire on this fan of his, when it is off everything turns freely, but when powered on it locks up tight like an electromagnet.

The motor housing is not together properly in the picture of it laying on the bench.   You can see it in the picture.    The left side has a gap.   This is causing a misalignment of the shaft and the bearing.  


I use a plastic hammer to tap on the housing to get it to "pop" in.   


Hope that helps.

Good call Anthony, also when tightening up the bolts, loosely tighten one, skip one. Do the same to the next one & so on, this will help put the cover back on evenly. Another thing is fix that cage-- the 5 bars should be straight across !! Great fan I might have an extra grille badge if

yours is missing
