The problem:  We recently rebuilt a 2-pole motor and the centrifugal blower it drives. When the customer reinstalled them, he reported high vibration levels.  Everything runs smoothly for 10-15 minutes after a cold startup. Then the vibration starts to climb. We balanced the rotor and blower to G 1.0 tolerances. We even balanced each of the 7 blower impellers separately using a balancing mandrel. Shaft runout was less than 0.0002" on the motor and blower when we finished the job. The customer uses laser alignment. He is convinced that us to rebuild the blower again. What did we do wrong?
