Tangential room blowers effectively blow warm air through the room, However, "Journal" type end bearings get noisy way too soon.
Our replacement tangential room blower for the following stoves has the same issue but unlike OEM blowers this replacement blower can be easily lubricated and kept working for a long time!
For these pellet stoves -- Lopi and Avalon Small Pellet stoves (Newport, Newport Bay, Pioneer and Pioneer Bay)
and most Avalon, Lopi and Fireplace Xtrordinair Gas inserts, Gas Fireplaces and Gas Stoves.
Listen to the video below to hear the end bearing noise.

Before replacing the blower, check to make sure the support bracket screws are not loose and vibrating.
Also make sure the blades turn freely and do not rub the sides or hit any screws.
Use high temp RTV on any loose screws to hold them in securely so they will not vibrate.
