Answer: 
Verify that the vent holes face down. Hot air prefers to rise up through the motor and be ejected along the shaft axis. Verify that the blower turns freely. If not lubricate the pillow blocks on the blower only with the proper type of non-detergent light machine oil. The belt should deflect about 1/2 inch on both sides when you grip both sides midway between the blower and the motor with one Read More

Answer: 
Just connect it to either the high or low pigtail of motor and that will give you either low or high speed, depending on your preference of blower speed output. If the motor has terminals, just read the wiring schematic of motor to determine which terminal to attach your hot wire to.

Is the 1/2 hp motor to "weak" for my cooler?

This question is from 2-Speed 1/2 HP Evaporative Cooler Motor

Reno Nevada

I replaced the 1/2 hp motor on my swamp cooler and after a month the motor started to make a whining/grinding noise to I returned it to Lowes and bought a motor from Home Depot. It turns out they are the same brand. Now the new motor is doing the same thing. Is it just the motors are "cheap" or do I need a 3/4 hp motor?

Answer: 
Try adjusting the belt on the pulley or making sure the bearings on the pulley wheel are well oiled. The squeaking sound is friction from metal on moving parts.

2-Speed 1/2 HP Evaporative Cooler Motor is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Low Quality I bought the first motor at Lowe's and the motor was loud and the bearings went out after about a month so I returned it and got a refund. I bought the second motor at Home Depot and it turns out it was the same motor, different brand name (Dial). Same problems, loud and the bearings went out after about a month and a half. I returned it and bought the more expensive 1/2 hp motor, so far no problems. DO NOT BUY THE DIAL MOTOR! Spend the extra ten bucks and get the better quality motor and save yourself the hassle of replacing the motor after a month of use.
