X-Trainer Fan Blade

Recommended Posts

Mine worked itself loose. I removed the entire fan & had a look & it sees that the plastic blade is just pressure fit to the motor shaft. I pushed it back on but am concerned that it will happen again. I have an override switch installed so I was able to shut it off when I heard the sound of it coming loose so I don't think it was damaged. I was thinking about glueing it but have never had much success gluing plastic to metal especially where forces are involved with a small surface area.

Cyoacrylate gel (Gorilla Glues version of Crazy Glue) is holding. I removed it, cleaned it, put a piece of thin plastic bag on the shaft between the motor & fan (leave plenty of extra so it can be pulled out after), glued it & pulled the bag out when it was dry.

Ya I had the same problem but JUST FYI. I replaced my fan motor with a SPAL 4" puller fan motor because it is the same dims as the stock beta fan however I made the misstate of tossing that stock fan blade that was walking off. To install the SPAL fan into the OEM fan mounting plastic bracket you will have to heat and remove the existing fan blade so if you can, install the stock fan blades onto the new SPAL fan. I feel like it works a lot better at moving air through the radiators than the stock SPAL blades . My thermostat is working fine now but because I am running the stock SPAL blades it takes longer for the liquid to cool down to turn the fan off ultimately just using more battery juice unnecessarily. plus if you ever have to get anew fan its a lot cheaper at $59. Hope this helps someone out there 118047324_SPASSFAN.PNG.cd6a0c193914f6772e05f1826614df0d.PNG541148554_OEMFAN.PNG.b1eab671a09c9828f61a6596efe12551.PNG

Ours fell off also. We will glue the blade on this winter when we replace the broken bracket.
