Emerson 760601 Rubber Flywheel
Replaces part numbers:
This hub fits most Emerson and Kathy Ireland ceiling fans with a K55XL motor. It has an outside diameter of 5-1/2" and a bore opening of just under 1" with hole patterns for four or five blades. We recommend purchasing a blade balance kit 760122 with your replacement hub.
How it Works
This part mounts to the rotating shaft of the K55 motor with a single set screw which is included. The point on the set screw seats into a divit on the motor shaft locking the rubber hub in place. The hub acts as a shock absorber and sound dampener for the blades which also eases start and stop on the motor extending overall life. The rubber hub is considered a wear-and-tear part and normally requires replacement bwtween 10-15 years of age but some factors can shorten the life. These factors include but are not limited to larger blade size, climate and use.
