Anyone use a SM999 motor
« on: May 15, 2014, 07:42:41 AM »
I have used these for more than ten years.
 Positives
 Replacement for almost all evaporator motors, no need to stock different motors
 impedance  protected, will not blow out from core saturation
 Cheap, available on Amazon $11.95
 Very reliable
 Negatives:
 For most application, the motor has to be reversed, turns the wrong way
 Must oil bushings with Supco zoom spout oil
 When taking apart, must be careful not to loose thrust washers.

Another negative
 You must cut in half the rubber grommet (provided) and use it to shim up the end bell, rubber supports.

I keep them on my truck.   I have 2 of them in stock at all times.    Work good in some of the cheap apartment refrigerators.     For more expensive home refrigerators,    I always try to use the OEM motor.    But these motors do work well.    Very easy to reverse,   fit a variety of applications.

Be wary of Amazon motors. They might be old stock and the light oil has deteriorated. If mounted vertically, oil the lower bushing to prevent bushing failure.

Go400, I ALWAYS oil the bushings before closing up the SM999.     good tip.     Another tip,   I keep a box of rubber grommets,   and a variety of other "aids" that might be needed to mount these.     Usually,  the rubber grommets they give you in the pack enclosed work fine,   but I sometimes have to get creative to get it to mount good.     I don't usually use these fans in vertical applications.
