  • Although we write this for our own kilns many of these articles apply to other makes - although L&L takes no responsibility for that.
  • Many Knowledgebase articles have Actions, PDFs and Videos associated with them.
  • Actions are specific actions for you to take during the troubleshooting or repair process.

Does my Vent Motor require lubrication?
  • Before you purchase oil, check to be sure that you do not have a motor with sealed bearings.
  • A motor with sealed bearings is permanently lubricated and does not require oil.
  • If you have this type of motor there will not be any oil ports on the motor in which to add oil.
  • The only motor that we have used that requires oil has a label on it that says Dayton Model 4C446. If you have this model, any lubricating oil will work including 3 in 1 oil found in every hardware store.
