Question Dayton Motor part number nomenclature--anyone know how to decipher?

Dayton Motor part number nomenclature--anyone know how to decipher?

The EZ-bake oven I have is not selling so I'm getting ready to strip it if I can't get more than the Dayton motors are worth. The insulation is mildewed and I'm tired of smelling it... Still thinking weld rotator with the gearmotor, rheostat and wiring.

I was curious if there is a way to determine what the characters mean in the model numbers. For example the gearmotor is 4Z726A and the fan motor is 5K683D.

I found the attached which was informative.

I put those numbers in at the grainger website and found the info on them even though they are discontinued.

I've used quite a few Dayton motors over the years and I'd guess that the product numbers you show
are just coded for catalogue listings--in other words, just a part number. If you have the motors and the
info on the tags is complete what other info are you looking for? As far as I can see the tag pretty much
tells you everything you need to know about any particular motor...

Thanks for the info Scott and Keith. I suppose I could visit Grainger to get the info I need but I was just curious if a model number had any "hidden" meaning like some car mfg methods. Where the prefix means one thing, the main number another and the suffix is a variation, for example. VW and Ford come to mind.

I did get more info on the gearmotor as in it will need a separate control both to convert AC to DC and provide variable voltage to control speed. These items exist in the oven housing already and should be able to be adapted easily. The potentiometer is very pretty...

It's possible, I suppose, but I think all the info you need to run the motor is on the tag itself...

Back from my fan design life, the Dayton part numbers were simply stock numbers. No meaningful info for the motor contained in it. I can't speak to the gear motors, but "regular" motors were generally private labeled Emerson.
We had an Emerson sourced motor that for inventory purposes was stocked in the local Grainger warehouse with a Grainger part number/Dayton ID tag.
