Blower Motors

A wood or pellet burning stove, when fitted with a blower fan, can become a space heater for the room it is in. In some models the blower might have the additional function of keeping the electrical components of the stove from overheating. On some stoves, particularly wood burners, the part may be an optional add on. 

If the appliance isn’t working at all, failing to turn off or making an unhealthy amount of noise, the motor may need replacing.

Before calling an engineer, or ordering a new motor, it is worth checking that the problem isn’t something much simpler. 

The fan may just be obstructed. Very carefully, with all power disconnected, attempt to inspect the fan. Remove any obvious debris and brush out any build up with a paint brush.

Also, it is worth checking that power is reaching the unit. Make sure that you’ve checked that a fuse hasn’t blown too. Beyond this, the blower will need to be bench tested to identify the fault. Unless you are confident, accomplished and have the right equipment, a qualified engineer should now be called to diagnose the fault.

Your engineer can quickly establish whether there is an electrical supply problem, or if the fault lies elsewhere.

If the blower is thermostatically controlled, the thermostat or heat sensors may be malfunctioning. Possibly just this component may need replacing, or even simply cleaning. 

More often than not, a failure to operate is catastrophic for the blower motor and it needs replacing.

The same applies to an overly noisy motor, very often a symptom of dry, worn bearings. Motors are sealed units and this would therefore mean a replacement needs to be ordered.
