Got a lemon

I was excited to unpack and mount this 1HP motor in my old Sears air compressor. But I always test-run anything with moving parts before going to all the work of installing. When I turned on the motor on the test bench I was disappointed to hear a loud "rattling" noise and vibration, while not huge, was definitely not acceptable. Being a motor repair person, I disassembled the motor and was relieved to find no apparent critical problems, however, on checking the rotor shaft with the dial indicator, I found it to be about .005" out of true and a bit out of balance. I trued the shaft, reassembled, and the noise was gone. Very poor quality control, Leeson! Obviously I cannot return this motor (it's fine now andI don't need the hassle) but I cannot recommend it either. Advise you look elsewhere for a 1HP compressor motor.

Step by step it was a great experience buying from Northern. Easy search for the Electric Motor, excelent customer service (since my shipment was to Puerto Rico). The item arrived on time and follow up and tracking was a breeze. Product description match as advertise and installation was very easy. I have to say I am not using it for an air compressor, but rather a similar working condition an oil pressure pump. It is working exceptionally well.

I installed one fof these compressor motors as a replacement for a burnt-out Dayton motor, and it has worked so well that I purchased another one to replace a worn-but still servicable motor on a second compressor! I would recommend this motor to anyone.
