Are any of you guys out there using the vitronics xpm oven's having problems with the muffin fans dying on the top of the oven. Seems to me that they are using an inferior muffin fan that is not rated for the environment they are in. The fans have sleeve bearings and need to be radial bearings. We have seen ALOT of fallout at about the 1 yr mark when the warrenty runs out....(of course).

Yes, the original fans were junk.

I replaced them all with a ball bearing type.

No problems for 3 years now.
