A.O. Smith Electrical Products: Evaporator Fan Motor
July 2, 2007
The Unitronix, stock number 9207, is a high-efficiency, multiwatt output replacement motor. The supermarket case evaporator fan motor is an electronically commutated motor (ECM) that can replace a variety of OEM shaded pole evaporator fan motors. It is designed as a 3-in-1TM multiwatt output motor. This allows it to replace 6-, 9-, and 12-W PSC and less-efficient shaded pole unit bearing motors. According to the manufacturer, using it as a retrofit to replace shaded pole OEM motors can save the user up to 65 percent in energy usage. The motor uses less wattage to achieve the same airflow as a shaded pole motor, so it produces less heat, and fewer Btu in the system means less work for the compressor and reduced compressor wear, claims the company.
