    Blue wheel repair

    Hello,
    I just recently got my blue gold wheel back from my ex wife, who left it outside (filled with rain) then froze up all winter long. It didn't have a lid on it. Is this beyond repair/replacing parts? Should I just get a new one? Thanks!

    Anything can be repaired ! I'd try some Clear Gorilla super glue on it and sand out the imperfections so you don't have any problem's ! post a picture of it when you get done !

    Open it up check it out inside see if its all dry and give it a try. I have the same setup. How's the spiral pan itself?

    Kinda hard to tell from the picture but that looks like you need some new clamps and a good cleaning. Put in some elbow grease. Looks plenty fixable unless I’m missing something.

    Looks fixable to me -- Feed it some DC-- should be easy to diagnose what works and what does not.
    Good luck

    Try it before you start buying new parts. See if it'll work as is , Then fix / replace the parts are needed.

    I recommend you stay single. If you get a new wife she may do the same thing

    Decided to open her up today. Quite a bit of rust. Might need to replace the on/off switch as well as the motor. But Iím letting stuff soak in vinegar for now then going to buff it all out and see what works and what doesnít. Got new battery clips and a bunch of new nuts and bolts to replace the normal stuff.

    Okay I think the motor is a tad too rusted. Iím not too knowledgeable when it comes to electricity. Can anyone help me find this motor and/or gear box? I have all the other replacement parts ready to roll. Click image for larger version.

    I did the same. And searched the model number/manufacturer. I found some very similar. Just concerned with the speed. I donít want one that geared different and spins like a helicopter rotor.
