Circulating fan instead of blower

Post by Carlos » Sun Jun 10, 2018 4:36 pm

I will be building a 4’ X 4’ X 7’ electric oven. Instead of using blower fans, I would rather use an internal fan with an external motor. If necessary, I could use one at the top pushing air down and another at the bottom pushing the air up, therefore causing circulation.

The problem is that I can’t find a suitable motor for a reasonable price. I’m guessing that one around 1400 rpm should work. I may have to settle for buying one from Grainger, but I would rather salvage one from a junked appliance. What kind of appliance would use a motor like this? I tried using a window fan motor, but it overheats because it doesn’t get any air flow.
