Title: 120 volt YDK motor
Post by: taran57 on February 20, 2017, 02:46:01 AM
I just picked up a fairly tidy DC24 for $15 (advertised as bad motor) and it had a YDK motor in it which is actually ok, the post filter was making the usual howling noise leading the owner to believe the motor was going out.

so it looks like the US isn't immune from the YDK disease.
 :snivel:

Going to give her a spa day and clean up the motor.
