making a cool mist motor spin faster.
    #2597338 - 04/24/04 08:12 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Has anyone ever modded a cool mist to make it spin faster so it will pick up more water?


I know people have slowed them down. I just haven't seen anything about speeding them up.

any ideas?

I assume this will reduce the life-span of the whole thing drastically (maybe to seconds :smile: ).

most AC motors are not built for speed changes. I read something recently that spoke about how the speed of an AC motor is regulated by the AC supply's frequency (Hz). Anyhow, I dont really remember all the details, but I've read many times, that it will burn up the motor.
