Peerless evap motors
I looked at a peerless 4 fan evaporator this morning at my butchers shop. They had a power outage this morning and 3 of the 4 ecm evap motors burnt out. Can I replace these expensive little motors with standard wattage single pole motors? The ecm motors are expensive and don't appear to do anything other than move air in a single speed. I see no real advantage of these motors and they are 3 times as much as the standard shaded pole motors.
Not sure, but if the unit is controlling defrost with the likes of KE2 and not standard defrost (I.e. time clock) then I believe the answer is no!

It has no defrost. It is a cooler. Single speed motors that run 24/7. These little ecm motors cost 4 times as much as shaded pole 16 watt motors, and in 3 years all 4 have been replaced once.
and the guy who sold them on the unit probably told them about how much money they would save on their energy bill
Actually they bought the entire system on line and it was shipped right to their door. I hooked it all up and get free deer processing for life and taxidermy for cost. They are also friends of mine.
