Hurricane Furnace Blower Trouble

My blower motor for my Hurricane Furnace motor failed today, was able to disassemble and found brushes just about gone. Was able to clean them up and able to get it running again(hopefully it will last long enough to locate another). Does anyone know if there is a generic replacement for this motor or will I have to go back to get a replacement from Hurricane?

Did you get any name and model numbers off the OEM motor when you had it apart? If so just Goggle the info and see if a replacement or discussion comes up. You might also call International Thermal Research dealers ITR Marine Heating Systems.
Good luck and keep us posted.

Replace the brushes?

Many small appliance repair shops stock generic brushes as it is their buisness to rebuild some of these, the brushes may be same as sewing machine motor.

Get any name from the motor as well as shaft size and brush size and start searching the net, or when you can, search for repair shops and when you find one that has brushes in stock, take the motor to them and see what they can do.

My mother has a 50 year old sewing machine with a motor no longer available, brushes worn out, shop at the corner had them in stock, cleaned motor and installed brushes for $7.00 minimum charge out the door.

Thanks for the ideas and to give eveyone an update. I called Russa Dean RV here in Pasco, Wa as they are listed as an authorized repair station from the web site RV Wizard, don't waste your time even calling these people they may be great at repairing things but when I gave them the name of the furnace and then the manufacture ITR and they had never heard of either I went the other way.

I then called ITR from an number on the listed web page and reached a very knowledgable individual who knew exactly what I was describing and is overnighting a new assembly as they have upgraded to a brusheless motor for this aplication.

Thanks everyone!
