Brand New Leeson Motor Noise

Recommended Posts

I've got 4 other Leeson motors in the shop and have never heard any noise like this coming from them. This is also the first one that I've gotten that has a little manual thermal protection reset button. That thermal protection thing wouldn't have anything to do with this sound right? Hard to tell if it's a bearing or the fan rubbing on something but this doesn't sound right to me. Just took it out of the box, haven't wired it up or anything. Just wanted to make sure I'm not the only one that thinks this doesn't sound right before I go through the process of getting it replaced.

Here's a quick video (with sound)

I think it is the fan. Take the cover off and see if the fan got damaged in shipping.

My only concern with taking the cover off was voiding warranty on a brand new motor. The retailer I ordered it through recommended me going ahead and wiring it up and if it does have an issue then, send it back for replacement.
