Fan end motor bearing failed
You\'ll have to find some way to pry the dead bearing off. I used two short lengths of angle iron slid under the bearing and placed across the open jaws of a vise and then tapped the shaft end until the bearing slid off. Make sure to place a bolt in the end of the shaft to protect it when hitting it with a hammer. To install the new bearing I pressed it into place using the same vise and an appropriately-size socket as a spacer.
