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

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?
Asked by: Al
its up to the type of cooler you have, you haven't said what size cooler you have. if it is a larger unit, over 4900 then yah, get a 3/4 or 1 horse.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Noisy motor The motor functions properly, restored my swamp cooler. However, there is a loud 60-Hz buzz that is audible outside as well as anywhere near the vents throughout the house. I tried it a few days, but it did not let up. Online I see similar comments about this motor. The old one did not make such noise. I had to go online, as every retail place in town carries this same motor. Got another brand today, installed it, no noise. Returned this Dial brand to HD for full refund.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Painless Installation I used this motor to replace the one that gave out on my cooler that is over 10 years old. It mounted right up to the existing brackets with no problems. I was able to use the same electric cord and pulley from my old motor. Installation only took about a half an hour. Store personnel were helpful. I brought in my old motor to verify everything would fit. The store associate opened the box with the new motor so I could compare measurements before the purchase. I’m completely satisfied with this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not start low speed after only 4 year, 3 months/year, service This motor is too loud, and now it wont start on the low speed after only a 4 year, 3 months per year, service life. The motor will run on low speed if I start it on high speed so I know its not the controller. The squirrel cage on my cooler turns very easily so I also know that the problem is in the motor. I always stored my motor in the garage during the winter hoping it would last longer, and also ran the sheave at its minimum diameter resulting in the lowest speed possible. Low quality products like this cause harm due to their ending up in the land fill before a useful service life has occurred. Also the per-year cost for the consumer is higher than if we paid more up front for a durable motor. Junk

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.
