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.
