Q:Are bearings in whirly bird vent sealed?
by|Aug 12, 2022
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. The Whirlybird's bearings are sealed. They are permanently sealed in lubricant to keep dirt and moisture out. These upper and lower ball bearings are to ensure long life and no maintenance. Here is a link for more information regarding our bearings: http://media.lomancovents.com/all_access/sales_literature/lo461_turbine_bare_facts.pdf.

    Q:please explain the warranty

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. Lomanco turbines are engraved with identification information—letters/numbers engraved on the inside of the turbine head. It is easiest to find the information by taking the turbine head off the base, flipping it upside down, and looking into the turbine head. You should see some letters and numbers engraved on the inside, round band of the turbine that is closest to your face when the turbine head is held upside down. We will need the warranty information along with the size of the turbine, style and the color. Here is more information on the size, style and color: Whirlybird turbines are either 12" or 14". If you are unsure of the size, you can measure the turbine head. The base of the turbine head will be approximately 13" if you have a 12" turbine and approximately 15" if you have a 14" turbine. The style of the whirlybird turbines are either internally or externally braced. An externally braced turbine will have 3 braces protruding from the top of the turbine head surrounding the whole top that spins. Lomanco manufactures turbines in a variety of colors—brown, black, weathered bronze, black, white, and mill (silver) finish. Once you have that information, you can call our main number 1-800-643-5596 and ask to speak to Customer Service, they will help with the turbine replacement top warranty.

        A:  If the roof is not a ventilated space, there's no reason to use this. The base might need to be cut to fit between any ridges in your roof decking. Otherwise, probably, yes, as long as there is still enough base flange to allow sealing and securing it. There is a roof pitch guide in the box. You'd need to seal all around the base before screwing it down, and then probably the top half of any upslope edge. You don't want wind-driven rain to get blown underneath. It's not intended to vent a living space. There's nothing in the box to make a transition from the ceiling to the roof.

          A:  Hello, Gennifer from Lomanco here. I do not have the exact size on the mounting screws, the information I have shows that they are sheet metal screws. We do have the hardware pack we could send. If you would like for us to send the hardware you can call us and provide your address where you would like for us to send them. Call and speak to Customer Service at 1-800-643-5596.

            The Lamanco brand wind turbines are better than most. A few "wobble" during the spin (slightly), but they still operate just fine. Again, comparing to others and other brands out there. If contacted for "suggestions," would be happy to give details on how to improve! :) But thanks for a good product.

            I purchase two of these items and they worked a a perfect replacement for my defective whirlybirds. The manufacturer bearing warranty was a big part of the selection of this item as my existing whirlybirds had stopped working due to bearing failure . They were the exact replacement part needed for the job and installation couldn't have been easier using another one of Home Depot products (naming a "roof ridge ladder hook"). I simply used the turbine part to replace my existing defective ones, thus I did not need to cut any holes in my roof or reseal any of the joints.
