    i always have this dilemma when repairing this cb15 bowl bearings? do I recommend the customer purchasing the hole assembly with the bearings and seal already in place for around 500$ or is repairing it, installing new bearings and seals.

    But the problem is i always have issues getting out the cracked bearings because this thing is so small, so it turnes out customer is paying so much more in labor.

    Sometimes I get those bearings out in one piece then customer lucks out and pays Much less.

    what do you guys recommend?

    Part number 27

    It all comes down to if you have a arbor press and a fixture to hold the shaft for proper removal and replacement of the nut.  It’s still $275 for parts, and about 40 min. labor.  But the real problem is if the customer/user knows not to immerse the blade assembly.  Or leave liquid in the container for extended periods. After all, there is no seal other than the bearing seals, a “V” ring and a labyrinth.  Now if there product ph is far off 7,  the bearing housing will corrode.  That would be a good reason to replace as a cartridge. Also if they have been immersing in a strong cleaning solution  Any shaft damage or wear would also indicate cartridge.

     

    I want to caution you that the 2 washers, nut, blade, bearing cap, Bearing inner races,  bearing spacer,  and shaft shoulder have to be clean and benefit if a thin film of anaerobic sealant is placed on them to prevent wicking of liquid along the shaft.
