I've already got the machine stripped down, taken off the fan itself and identified two tags and disengaged them but the motor doesn't seem to want to move.

Hi

Ok so look at the motor either side are the platic supports. Have you release the tags and spun these right round to remove them?

I'll just have a look. May take me an hour to get back.

Hi

No worries what you need to do is release the tabs on the supports either side of the motor ans spin them right round so then it will allow you to release the motor and remove it from there.

Thanks, ***** ***** rear bearing cover was very tight but the front was a real struggle. Knowing that it did turn gave me the confidence to wack it a bit with a hammer! Motor and both covers are now out.

Hi

Nice one glad to hear you got it. Sometimes they can be very tight other times they spin round easy.

But if you need anymore info just get back to me.

Hi Daniel. I keep getting emails chasing me to rate your service (which was Excellent). I have already done this and the £19 has been taken out of my account. How do I stop the reminders?
