The bearings in the heater motor are probably phosphor bronze - a
reddish brown metal. Ideally they should be soaked in light oil for
24 hours so that the oil actually penetrates the crystalline
structure of the metal. Application of 10 weight oil over a period of
hours will do much the same if you don't want to remove the bearings.
The problem with grease is that it may not penetrate the metal and
will not lubricate the bearing for so long.
Happy New Year everyone!
