Blower about to go out.

Recommended Posts

I have a 2012 22 Mxz and the blower motor sounds like the bearing is going bad. Does anyone know what kind of blower it is or the part number for them. The local dealer is completely useless where I'm from. Thanks!!

Assuming you're near the boat, you should be able to see the information on the existing blower that will give you a manufacturer, maybe even a model number. If your dealer isn't doing their job you can also call Malibu (or send an email), they can tell you exactly what was put in your boat and if it might be covered under warranty.

There are probably only 2 Chinese manufacturers of those fans in the world. I went to the local boat seller and bought the correct sized fan, pulled off the OEM electrical ends and soldered them back on. No prolonged searching, waiting or associated shipping problems or cost! JM2C

I would pull the blower and see if there is something stuck in there making it whine. Maybe even a shot of wd 40. Three years is really soon for a blower motor to go bad.

Mine sounded like it was going bad, I replaced it with a new one that sounded worse. Still works though makes a bunch of noise.

Mine was making a squealing noise so I pulled it found the fan blade seperated from the shaft, gorilla glued, all good.

They're cheap crap that doesn't last. Mine failed after 5 years and my boat is stored in a heated garage

if the mounting bracket breaks, the sound changes. Mine did that.

Does it get quieter? Should I break my mounting bracket?
