Russ Huber Posted February 26 Share Posted February 26 (edited) I posted three 2 stars on a recent post started by Randy Pierce. All three were in sound mechanical operating condition, with two testing fully functional. One however seen assembled on the far-left Type AO Form R5 would not function. I tested ohms from the wires from the stator, the stator tested bad. I broke the fan down and removed the stator. The stator at first looked fine. The previous owner decided to replace a missing strut mounting screw with another screw same threading over twice as long as the original mounting screws. By doing so he drove the excessively long screw into the windings thus severing at least 4+ winding wires making the stator dysfunctional. I hope this heads up helps someone in the future to be careful what length strut mounting screws you use.
