Subject: Hearthware Precision repairs?
The fan in my Precision roaster has burnt out .. are these things user-
repairable? If so, a lead to a spare parts source would be
appreciated.
thanks

Yes it is a solvent and works quite well to loosen up my hearthware
gourmet motor when it jams.

Rubbing alcohol isn't a lube, it's a solvent/cleaner..

Try spraying/dropping rubbing alcohol into the motor spindles that is
how I keep my Hearthware Gourmet running in fact I drilled a litte
hole in the plastic base of mine right under the motor centered over
the spindle for dropping alcohol in whenever I hear squeaks or the
motor stalls. It has worked for years. This is assuming your motor is
gummed up with carbon and not really fried.

Don't leave the unit turned on for any period while the motor is
stalled this will truely fry the motor.

My Hearthware Precision roaster is now 6 years 8 months old with 731 roasts
on it & still going strong!, & I believe it must be some kind of record.
It's what I started out with & still use it every 2 - 3 days.

The manufacturer doesn't make after-market parts, according to another
user. Gourmet 2000 / Precision 2002 / Home Innovations (rebranded)
2003. Take it out to measure and note for specs/part listings on the
fan casing. I'd call iRoast for leads into their parts supplier or
advice for a direct replacement. Encased or mated into an integral
heating coil unit assembly, might ask if a complete roaster
replacement at $300 instead of parts at $30+ is clearly indicated. Or
tear it down for bearing conditon and if the motor can be swapped.

Not really, but have you looked at the commutators carbon brushes? Maybe
they're just worn out past their travel limit. If you go to a small motor
repair or rewind shop, you should be able to match up & get a set that'll
work.
Or are you saying the motors armature windings have burnt out?
