Is there a guide somewhere that shows how to dismantle the Align motor for shaft and bearings replacement?

I found this out in Internet Land:
I replaced mine, it was not a big deal. order them up now so you will have them, cost me about 35$.

Loosen up the set screw on the bottom, chuck up the motor shaft in a vise. and twist the back plate back and forth untill it breaks free off the shaft. slide them apart.

Get a piece of 1/4" soft drawn HVAC ACR refrigeration tubing. use that as a punch to pop out the bearings. and just put the new ones in. I used a small amount of thread locker to hold them in. But I may have not used enough.

My first time took about half hour. I never did it before. next time if needed will only be 5 minutes or less.
As for the having to twist the back plate back and forth until it breaks free, my guess would be perhaps there is some loctite-style material holding things together, a little heat may help make things easier.

while you have it apart you might want to balance the can as align doesn't do a good job with most of those......
