Cricket sound from passangers fan motor??

04 beaver marquis and the passangers fan motor is driving me nuts. It squeaks like a cricket?? I drilled a hole in the top of the plastic on the motor and shot wd-40 all around, took the hose loose and shot it in as far as I could from the deflector side. Nothing has changed. The only way it won't squeak is if it is high speed. Odd thing!! Anyone ever experienced anything like this?

Sounds bad it's time to sway it out it's got sealed Bering's in it and they are dry yo might can remove the motor and take it apart and lube the Bering's

WD-40 is NOT a lubricant. It will actually wash the lubricant away. The fan motor will either have preoiled bronze bearings or sealed bearings.

It could be the thrust bearing is bad on the motor and allowing the fan to contact the housing.

Try a couple drops of motor oil (the same stuff you would use in your MH's engine) - when the fan is not running. Let it set for a few minutes before turning it on.

Ya.. going out. If you get it out you could spray some white lithium on the bearings, but thats only a short time fix. best to replace.
