Question and Answers

Q:

please tell me the year of Model number: 8737 3110 Serial #: M3490 8200

A:

Thank you for your question.

I will be happy to assist you. I have looked up the serial number you have submitted. This dryer was manufactured in December 1983. I can really give you an average dry time. The reason is there are too many variables. These are the load size, how well they are spun out, the fabric type, the type of venting used, and the length of the vent. Due to the age of the dryer, it is going to take longer to dry clothes. The reason is the drum seals are probably worn and the blower wheel could be partly plugged. If the dryer is taking double the time it used to take, I suspect the vent to the outside is plugged. The verify this you can run a load with the vent disconnected. Of course, open any widows in the room to allow any moisture and exhaust to escape. If the dryer dries like it used to I recommend cleaning the vent to the outside.

Please reply below with more details if you need further assistance.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

MOTOR CAME WITH TWO WIRE OLD HAD THREE WHAT DO I DO WITH THE WHITE NEUTRAL WIRE

A:

Thank you for you question.

According to the manufacture the original motor for your whole house fan is no longer available.

  • That fan was a 2 speed motor. I believe the replacement motor you received is a single speed motor and that is why you have an extra wire. You can look on the side of the new motor to find the wiring diagram for the new motor. It should show some wiring options, like 120 volt or 240 volt wiring options.
  • I would suggest that you have a licensed electrician have a look at the new motor wiring requirements, to make sure it is wired correctly.

Q:

I need help installing a replacement motor for a Craftsman Whole House fan.

A:

You are correct the motor that you have received a single speed motor. It is the motor that replaced the old motor. To install this motor you would have to cap the red wire going to the motor for the second speed. The green wire will connect to the grounding screw. The white wire should connect to the terminal marked neutral and the black should connect to the l terminal. I have checked for a 2 speed motor on the internet form third party venders without any luck. If you want a 2 speed motor I recommend calling a supplier during the week called Johnstone supply company. They deal with hvac products and might be able to locate the correct motor.
