The Winter maintenance on my K75S has been like any project I've done on my home; starting a single simple job grows into multiple jobs of increasing difficulty and cost.
Among other things, I found the cooling fan didn't spin freely any more so I removed and disassembled it. After cleaning the shaft and applying generous amounts of oil to the bearings the motor spins freely again. The question is, have any of you revived a fan motor and continued to use it successfully?
I also wonder if there is a better alternative to the stock cooling fan and motor? There are some small fans used for car radiators that look as if they might work, another thought was to use a fan from an electronic device; has anyone done anything like any of these?
