Fan coil motor is produced mostly in 2, 4 , 6 and 8 pole with the motor output power which ranges from 5 to 1150 watts. These fan coil motors are predominantly used in fan convector and warm air heating and comfort cooling applications such as fan coil unit, door curtains, fan decks within a fan convector unit, Fan convector, warm air heater, comfort cooling, AHU (air handling units), warm air door curtains, air conditioning and other HVAC equipment.

FCU fan motor ( Fan coil unit motor ) is a kind of PSC motor ( permanent split capacitor motor ) which with a running / starting capacitor to get the fan coil electric motors started and continue to run. Our coil fan motors are generally a class B insulated fan coil blower motor with sealed for life ball bearings which enable operation at temperatures of -30 to +50 ℃.

The fan coil motor body can be ventilated, totally enclosed or extruded shell depending on your application and mounting arrangement. Mostly the fan coil unit motor is mounted in a U shaped resilient cradle which sits onto a galvanized metal tray (fan deck). This mounting arrangement makes for quick coil fan motor removal and fan coil motor replacement as the old fan coil motor can simply be lifted out and a fan coil unit motor replacement 'dropped' into its place.

Various ranges of fan coil motors and central air conditioner fan motors are available in CPMDJ, which are used in equipment installed in hotels, restaurants, offices, commercial and other non-domestic. Fan coil electric motors are mostly used for the repair of fan coil units, fan convector, warm air heater, comfort cooling, AHU (air handling units), warm air door curtains, fan decks, HVAC, air conditioning. The room air conditioner motor parts have a long service life but due to the prolonged operating hours, the slide bearing runs more roughly overloading the fan coil unit motor. This can also occur when the impellers in the unit become dirty. CPMDJ can supply the motor fan coil  to you, optionally with foot and clips.


When selecting the fan coil unit motor, following criteria should be concerned.

Fan Coil Fan Power

Because the single-phase electric fan coil motor uses a relatively large amount of reactive current and the output from these small fan coil motors is lower, the difference is large. For this reason, always check that the nominal current and power of the fancoil motor being exchanged does not differ too much.

Rotational Speed (RPM) of Fan Coil Motor

Most fan coil unit motors have three or more speeds. In practice not all speeds are always used and you can experimentally determine which speeds result in the best control. The maximum speed is the starting point for selecting the fan coil motor. After installation, always check that the nominal current for the various speeds and the least resistance for the blower are not exceeded.

Fan Coil Motor Voltage

Our fan coil motor can be single-phase 208- 240V 50Hz / 110-120V 60Hz or other design. Please check your power supply.

Diameter & Length of Fan Coil Motor Shaft

Mostly diameter of fan coil motor shaft is 1/2" / 1/2 Inch / or 12.7 mm in one case 3/8" = 9.52 mm occurs. Fan coil units are usually fitted with one, two or three fan housings. CPMDJ has exclusively fancoil motor with a shaft on both sides. If the fan coil unit has one fan housing, single shaft coil fanmotor is always available in Changzhou Changpeng Motor Co., Ltd.

Height and Width of the Fan Coil Motor Foot

The seating measurement is the distance between the centre of the mountings for the fan coil blower motor. If the seating measurement of the existing foot and the new fan coil motor differ slightly the foot can be bent. Make sure here that the seating of the foot always stay perpendicular to the fan plate. Our fan coil motors can supply with the foot as standard.

Fan Coil Motor Balancing

Coil fan motor run vibration-free. New impellers are balanced. Impellers can easily get bent or unbalanced during transport or fitting. Often a slight vibration is unavoidable due to the overall structure. Sometimes the replacement of one or more impellers can provide the solution.  Contact your fan coil motor factory, manufacturer and supplier now!
