How to Tell if You Need Centrifugal Blower Repair

Here at Pat’s Pump & Blower, we want to help you keep your important components and machinery working properly, and that includes your centrifugal blower system. In our extensive experience, the best way to keep your system in good working order is to learn to identify potential problems as early as possible so that you can fix them before they can do any real harm. To help you do that, in this article, we’ll be going over a few ways to tell if you need centrifugal blower repair.

  • No Rotation. One sign that you need centrifugal blower repair is if the mechanism stops rotating like it should or starts having difficulty doing so. This issue can be caused by a number of different things, including rust in the impeller chamber, damaged motor winding, or faulty wiring. If you find yourself dealing with this issue, we encourage you to give our team a call to get a professional inspection.
  • Excessive Vibration. Another sign that you need centrifugal blower repair is excessive vibration. While your blower will always have some vibration when it runs, if you notice that your system’s shaking has become unusually pronounced, you most likely have a problem. This issue can be caused by loose mounting, failing bolts, insufficient tension in the v-belt, or one of a list of other problems.
  • High Temperature. Similarly, if your blower is running unusually hot, you probably need centrifugal blower repair. Like the other issues on this list, this phenomenon can be caused by many different factors, so your best bet is to call professionals like ourselves to come assess the situation and provide recommendations on how to fix it.
