130588FE Motor Replacement
I have the Nutone CV400. Both motor numbers are 130588FE. One motor is "arching" when running and I have to move the fan blades on top of this motor to get it to start. There is a lot of black dust all around the top of this motor, is it perhaps brushing dust? Will replacing the brushes cure the problem? Also, the little "fan" on the top of this motor wobbles. Do I need to replace this motor? Will your motor #119412 fit/replace my #130588FE without any modifications or change in circuit breaker size, etc.? Thanks, Jim, Huntsville.
Yes, you need to replace the motors. The bearing, armature, and brushes are shot. The number you found is for an internal part of the motor. They were not good a putting the actual number on the motor years ago. The 119412 is a new generation motor made by the same company and fits right into place for the two motors. You should not need any other components changed besides the motors.
