No luck finding part for Ct....
« on: June 13, 2015, 12:12 PM »
This past week my ct33 got very loud, suction is still great but out of nowhere sounded like a shopvac. Opened her up and found that the small fan/propeller part at motor is missing a fin which probably is what's causing the noise. Searched ekat and no luck, can anyone help with this?

Looking at EKAT, it appears to be part of 454795 (Drive unit 110-120V) for $128.70.

You might want to just call Festool Service.

You can not order just the fan, you have to order the entire motor unit. Do what Tom says, maybe Festool has a solution that's not on Ekat.

Would be a real bummer if you had to replace the entire motor for such a small thing.

Did you find the missing part of the fan? If it's lodged in the wrong place it could also cause noise and trouble.
