    My Halia chiller has been in storage for two years. Started it up and it now has noisy fan. Were Can I take it in Cape Town for a service or to have the fan pulley replaced?

    Sounds more serious than that, but will give it a try.

    I know exactly what ya talking about! Bought a hailea chiller from a guy and it sorta worked and then burnt a fuse. What i did not know is that the heat exchanger fan was seazed up. (rusted)
    Tried to strip it but the one bush was damaged. Took it into mu machine shop the polished the bush and shaft and now she working!! I would suggest servicing the motor. The noise you are hearing is the bush jammed onto the drive shaft and it is spinning in the floating bush retainer!!!

    Hope it helps? Else give me a shout!

    Thanks, it has quite down a bit with frequent use.

    Any idea where in Cape Town I can take it?

    Don't the supplier have an after market service process?
