Freshvent Ventmax air exchanger.

I have a noisy fan motor assembly in my Freshvent Vent 1001 air exchanger. I have replaced it once 10 years ago and now cannot find another Motor. It is a half amp motor 120vac with an external rotor that pivots on one single bearing. Has anybody seen this kind of motor I believe it is of German origin. I am having trouble locating one of these fans and motor.

I don't recognize that motor. You may have to take it out and use the services of a company like Graingers where they stock hundreds of replacement and aftermarket motors.

Hello there, I have this same Freshvent Ventmax air exchanger in my home, I'm wondering if you have this installed in your home or some where else, I recently did some research on this machine and found out that its not even for a house, could you please let me know

Welcome to the forums.

Their product description talks about home and dwelling installation so I'm not sure where you got that information from.

maybe its not even the right site for this machine, but thought I would share, reason why i'm asking is because the one I have in my home is always blowing in air, I'm concerned about the winter time bringing in cold air causing it hard to heat in the winter,

I left a link to the company you are looking for. It's located in Canada.
The company you linked to is a commercial company in Australia.

freshvent 1001dx air exchanger

Read your post re fan motor. I had problem with same motor. I disassembled and replaced both shaft bearings which I got from bearings canada. I CAN PROVIDE INFO IF YOU ARE INTERESTED.
COULD YOU PROVIDE A PHOTO OR DETAILS ON CONNECTIONS FROM THE MOTOR
(3 WIRES) TO THE PANEL ON THE VENTILATOR. iNDIVIDUAL WHO DISCONNECTED
THE WIRES DID NOT RECORD DETAILS.
