    I would do whatever it takes to pull that unit out and go in from the back.Mcdonalds has to be serviced usually after 12.00am.If the fryer went in there's a way to pull it out.

    post up the model/serial number, if its the one i m thinking of, the entire shelf the motor and pump sits on unbolts so you can work on it a little easier, if i remember right. been a while since i ve done one where the motor isnt on the filter cart

    mission accomplished

    got the motor out,,, turns out it could have been worse... fyi....the motor mounts to a cross bar this bar is held on by four bolts they also adjust the hight of the motor so the filter cart will line up ... take them all out and the motor will come out....... wigle wigle etc. un mount the motor and put it all back in .. there is a trick to geting it in i can let you know if you ever need to know it..
    on to more adventures !!!!!!!
    see ya all later .

    I work for a McD franchisee and change those things all the time. The only real trick is to use a hydraulic type roller jack to get the new one in place so you're not trying to hold 40 lbs. with left hand and lining everything up with the right.

    I need to pick up a replacement pump / motor and this one matches my specs :

    Baldor 34G040Y214G1 Frymaster 8261756 motor .33 hp new

    Do you guys think this is a good deal? Cheapest I've been able to find online is almost twice as much. I've never bought anything off ebay before. What do you guys think?

    Thanks

    The reset button is either missing or pushed into the housing. This could mean a wiring issue.

    You didn't give a model of the fryer although you noted motor specs. If a gas fryer, then the motor is a 120v. If an electric fryer, could be a 120 or a 208 - I've seen BOTH on electric models. You must get the right one because the motors aren't designed for low or high voltage rewiring. It's one or the other. That 8261756 number in your specs is Frymaster's part number for a 208v motor.

    According to the picture, that motor is a 208v, although that detail isn't given in the e-bay ad.

    I can't tell that from the picture. The reset is mounted on the back of the motor and IS susceptible to damage if not properly packaged. Since there's no shaft, only other vulnerable area is the mount foot - which isn't an issue.

    The reset CAN be ordered and replaced. Gotta solder the wire connections.


    Last note: You should've separated the motor from the pump. If you found oil migration from the pump seal, replace the pump too. Otherwise that motor will fail again soon due to oil and/or moisture migration into the motor.
