Gyroc B Retrofit replacement Motor 240 Volt, 50Hz correct Australian and New Zealand Voltage.
This is a slightly larger Fasco motor but fits without modification to keep your Old Gyroc B going for the years ahead. Comes fitted with power cord, inline switch and Australian 3 pin plug. Click features tab above to see video on how to fit.
NOTE: This motor mounts with two Studs only, not the original 3 stud mount but this does not cause any issues. The belt cover will not fit in the same way and should be attached with a small amount of silastic instead. Otherwise, this motor has the same specs and will run the tumbler easily.
Background: The original Fasco motor that has been used for years successfully on the Gyroc Model B is currently not available. Gyroc are now selling a new type of Motor in the Model B units that does not work in Australia as they are 60Hz and not the required 50Hz for our power supply (this currently applies to Gyroc B Models only).
IMPORTANT NOTE: there is significant variation in the frame leg length of Gyroc units over the years - Tagit did not really have a standard and some units are shorter while others are taller. This retrofit motor is very slightly longer than the original Gyroc motor. Therefore, it is important that there is sufficient clearance at the base of the motor to allow airflow or motor will overheat. If you have a shorter unit, you may need to pack out the rubber feet on the legs with some washers to increase leg length - we have seen a couple of extreme examples of older vintage that required leg extensions. Before fitting the motor, ensure bearing on the spider is not seized, springs are in good shape, pulley alignment is correct and there is nothing to impede the motor in any way.
NOTE: Picture shows the Retrofit Motor on a Test unit - you are buying the Motor Only. The mounting nuts should be re-tightened after the first hour of use. For added security, you may choose to add a small amount of silastic between the tumbler frame and the top of the motor (optional).
