Cleaning Out the Squirrel Cage

Preview text: 
The squirrel cage is not really a cage for putting squirrels in, but acts as a industrial strength fan blade that draws the airflow through your roaster.

I am one that does't typically believe everything I hear. Even if the roaster is making some crazy sounds and I think I might know what is going on, it never hurts to have someone else lend an ear. In this case, I came close to spending cash on a motor when in fact it only needed to be inspected closely. A high pitched squeal accompanied by a serious repetitive knocking sound was coming from the motor on the L12. My first reaction was to replace the motor and be done with it.
