Q:

Replacing the Fan Assembly 315116920 Craftsman Sander

A:

Thank you for being Sears’ valued member and for contacting SearsPartsDirect.com with your question about replacing the fan assembly in your Craftsman sander model 315116920. I am so sorry the part shattered. I understand wanting to replace the part yourself. In this case we advise against it. 

The fan is part of the sander that represents an important part of the double insulated system of this tool. Any repair of this tool requires dielectric testing to ensure the operator’s safety. To avoid the possibility of alteration or damage to the double insulated system, service should only be performed by your nearest Sears repair center. The repair must be completed using the necessary diagnostic and testing equipment to assure continued compliance with applicable UL requirements. The sander must be checked using high voltage testing equipment to prevent a severe shock hazard which may occur if the part is not properly installed and tested.  

Here at SearsPartsDirect.com we love to help you with your do-it-yourself repair projects, but in this case, for your safety, the sander should only be repaired by a qualified technician with the proper testing equipment. Thank you for your understanding in this matter and thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business.

I am sorry the part you have ordered is not the correct part. I have checked the parts list and I believe the bearings are going to be part of the armature. I do not see the bearings listed by them self. i have checked with other techs and they think it should come with the armature. The part number for the armature is 030156001010 and can be ordered from the following link. Armature I hope this is helpful. Thank you for using Manage my life.

Why would I want to buy an armature when all I need is a bearing, I already bought a paten assembly that I didn't need, thanks to an "experts" advice , I can't believe that this bearing,an integral part of the paten is not available, maybe the manufacturer of the sears product can get one, what do you think? Getting annoyed! Steve C

A:

The bearing is NOT an integral part of the platen. It fits relatively loosely into a recess in the platen. A standard 3-jaw gear puller can pull the bearing off of the end of the armature. Put the armature in a vise with aluminum jaws and tighten the vise gently onto the main body of the armature. The pull the bering off hte armatur with the bearing puller. Then measure the bearing - the Inside Diameter, Outside Diameter and Height and call a bearing supply house. Bearings are just a few bucks. Then put the bearing flat on a hard bench, put the armature end into the bearing and gently tap the armature down into the bearing with a brass or plastic headed hammer. Good luck.
