Finally got around to looking at heat for AD
Hooked up charger to leads and it spun really well.
I let it run to make sure it seemed ok,then filled it with water to check for leaks(none,wow)

Afterwards I realized the charger was on 12V ,os I tested again on 6V .
It ran,not as fast
The motor did not get hot or smell when on 12V.

Will this work correctly,or should I use 6V ??

Is it a 6V or a 12V motor?

My recent experience the 6 volt blower motor runs way too fast on 12v.

There are couple of other post with replacement motors suppliers in 6 and 12 volts.

I decided to run my 6 volt on 12 volts using a ballast resistor to reduce the voltage. The resistor sitting in the air stream.

I have the ballast resistor, but I also have a rheostat switch I could use to adjust speed.

Not sure what voltage motor actually is.
