- Vermont Castings/ Merrimack fan replacement.
I bought this particular GFK-160/F-180, ball bearing fan only, as a replacement for our Vermont Castings/ Merrimack wood burning fire place insert. Having replaced its proprietary, expensive, sleeve bearing fan blower once already, after 1 season that fan blower becomes very noisy due to the fact that the sleeve bearings are damaged by dust and the blower speed slows down. I tried filtering the intake air but that that didn't help.
The F-180 fan is identical in size and almost identical with cfm and rpm. The only problem is that the fan's housing air outlets are vertical, where it should be horizontal for the VC/M insert. I was able to disassemble the unit, rotate the housing air outlets to the horizontal position, and after minor re-wiring, the fan was installed as a perfect replacement. It's operation is quiet and the heated air discharge flow is strong. After 3 weeks of non-stop heating our home with the VC/M insert again, I am very pleased with this F-180 fan blower performance. My hope is that the manufacturer of this fan blower eventually will market a perfect replacement fan blower unit for the Vermont Castings/ Merrimack fire place insert.
