Hi.  I have a we-6 wet cooler that has a broken cast iron agitator motor.  Can these be fixed or is there a good replacement available for it?  

Thank you, Doug

Thanks for the response Johnie.   Will it be a problem that this motor spins faster?  I think the other one was less than 1000 RPM's.  Also, do you know if the grainger one is a direct bolt in or does it take an adaptor?

thanks again, Doug

Naw 500 RPM's extra will only circulate the water around the tank a little faster is all, yep it bolts right up using the same three mounting holes to the bracket, if yours has only two screws mounting it to the bracket you can still use it with an adapter plate either part No. 1C897/~$6.00 or No.4M738/~$3.00  goto www.grainger.com and checkout their
online catalog for pictures, etc.

That's great news.  Mine has the 3 mounting holes so it should work perfect.  Lokks like I need to place an order.

thanks again Johnie!

No problem, glad to help, Dlyle, just make sure it's the right length, yours may have an old rubber shaft coupler between the motors shaft and the circulator paddle, measure the length from the face of the motor to the end of the shaft to confirm, also double check which end you need, a flat, or a 1/4-20 thread-end, you know where to go if you need any more info! let us see some before and after pic's of the motor assy if you can! (and the cooler too!)

Hi Guys.  I'm a little confused now.  It says the motor runs CCW but when I look at it it apears to run clockwise.  I'm looking at the impeller right now, looking from the bottom of it (the end opposite where it attaches to the motor rubber coupling) and it spins clockwise.  The impeller blade is correct, I have another working machine to compare it to.  It spits water out the top and everything.  I've talked to Steve at funtronics and his catalog also says CCW.  Are we sure it doesn't mean CCW as viewed from the top of the machine?  
Thanks again, Doug

I looked at one of my other motors for reference.   The fan motor for the condensor says it's a CW motor...and it does turn clockwise, but only as viewed from the motor side, not the shaft side.

Thanks, Doug
