Whater the belt size

Asked by Eric May 21, 2021
1
Answer

There are multiple lengths, so you will need to refer to your user manual or spec sheet. All belts are 1/2” wide.

How are you able to switch speeds? Is there a wiring kit available?

Asked by Manny March 21, 2021

Answers

The motor switches speeds based on what you have controlling it - a wall switch or thermostat. The wall switch as a low cool or high cool mode - you choose, but it will not change until you manually change it to another mode. If hooked to a thermostat, the low and high modes are determined by temperature and the parameters you have set it to. If you have any additional questions, please call Dial at 800-350-3425.

Answer

You may have to check your user manual to verify the specs of the motor needed, but if it mounts to a 56Z frame and the cooler requires a 1/2HP 2-spd motor, then it should work.

I do not have specs for the FS450A motor, but our motors can be used in most evaporative coolers. As long as you match the horsepower and speeds, you should be ok.

This motor was a perfect fit for my cooler and works like a dream! I did not use the adjustable pulley that came with the kit, but instead used the original one I had. The clamps worked fine and were exactly like the original ones. Very pleased.
