Post 1982 Airstream Classic 31' center bath

Hi Everyone
I have been reading these forums every night for about a month, and have learned much from all, thanks.
I removed my nt 30 m furnace ser #1274480, ( It was made after the recal problem) Thanks again to you folks. I took EVERYTHING apart, cleaned all and foung the motor bearings are bad. the shaft wobbles and was making a noise while running, the reason for the dismanteling. The motors model # is ( I think) M5779, NT 32/ 30m , american posch, ser# ( again I think) mo 661250 12v.
I would apprieciate any info : does any one have an old one, does anyone have a Intire old or junk furnace I could salvage the blower motor from. Am aware new nt 30 is nearly $500.
Thanks in advance

Check around with long-time established Airstream dealerships. I found the motor I needed for my previous unit in Lubbock, Texas at Billy Sims RV. The parts department had a number of new, out of date Suburban Heater motors still in the box. They also had several older heaters that they had removed over the years from which they could scrap for parts. Inland RV, Ace Fogdell, and many other dealerships around the country sort of make a living trying to provide rare and out of date parts to their customers. A list of dealerships can be found on the Airstream, Inc. website. Most can be contacted through email. Finally, there are a number of wrecking yards around the country that scrap out Airstream and other trailers.

Check with www.marksrv.com He has parts for the furnaces, the issue with replacing the motor is tat a new one will run close to 200.00. Then you still have a PC board that can fail, or other parts that once you get done will end up costing you close to the cost of new.

On furnaces this is one area that I recommend buying a new one and just scrapping the old one. The furnace is over 10 years old now, and parts will be come increasingly hard to find. Besides the furnace is one of those things that if it is not working safely can kill you. We really want to avoid that.

You may also want to try Colaw's Salvage. When I talked to them I was told that most of the salvage units were 1980 varieties.

This might be a shot in the dark, but Grainger carried tons of small blower motors. They might have the app for your furnace if you can match the specs. I replaced a fan motor in my home a/c with one from them at a fraction of the regular retail cost.

Thank you very much for the Marks rv link. I just ordered a new motor for 98.00, much better than fooling around with old. They also have a complete line of parts for all nt furnaces. Again thanks so much.
