This is the best I can do for a model number (motor is at my office, I can get any illegible numbers from the photo in the am).

I called a couple of shops around here and they all say they don't repair motors that small, just replace them. I've tried to explain it's not the usual 1/4 horse fan motor, but it's outside of the norm for most if these guys so it's not worth their time to investigate a resolution. I do have one guy that will look at it, going to try to get it to him tomorrow.

You might be better off to buy that $340 unit and be done with it. It appears that that EBM-Pabst unit may be a special run assembly made for the a/c builder that is not available as just the motor itself. It is a a unitized blower/motor.

That is not to say you can't find a domestic blower that will run on the same voltage and provide the same air flow. It is just a blower after all. See what Grainger has in the same size. You might have to wire it to run all the time or with the circ pump or something.

I got the numbers OK. But it is an odd fan. Tried all of the typical industrial channels to no avail.

Google found one in Sweden...

Yep, that $340 blower is looking better and better. Still hoping the local shop will be willing to refurb though. Find out tomorrow, if not, off to the marine air distributor for the complete blower assembly.

Those motors are sealed as I recall. I don't believe they are rebuildable.

Agree, that doesn't look like a promising candidate. Maybe the motor shop will have a substitute.

Took it to a motor guy yesterday, no dice (though he found it a very interesting motor). Ordered the marine air blower, should have it installed next week.

How did you remove the floor to get at the AC unit? My salon AC needs to come out.

Sorry RC, I missed your post. I assume you already figured out your floor, but in my case there is a grate under the salon sofa. I was only pulling out the blower, but it looked like the entire unit would have fit out of the opening.
