Hello all,

I have a "squeaky" fanmaster. Is there a lubrication point for the fan
bearings?

Thanks for your help.

Are you sure a mouse hasn't crawled up the pipes and is stuck at the fan
protesting you turning it on

Lubing it means taking it off, pulling the fan off the motor and trying to
lube the bearings, they're prolly sealed so it may be hard to lube them for
long,
if your stripping it down that far, you may as well pull the bearings and
put new ones in.

Not as such - but a good de-fluffing of the fan and a VERY gentle squirt
of furniture polish or silicone lubricant behind the fan may help
