Back when I repaired window air conditioners I used a spray can product called 
brake cleaner to clean the bearings or shaft.  Then I sprayed boat motor 
fogging oil in the bearing while it was running. These two products worked very 
well on the motors which are simular to the blower motors.
Brake cleaner is in the automotive area and fogging oil is in boat area.
Both are spray cans with a straw. These operations are done while the motor is 
running and one right after the other.

Does anyone have any information on a better solution to now
replacing this blower than sending it back to RF Concepts?

Or, is there a way to lubricate it?

Thanks in advance. Please reply directly.
