    ASTM blower slowing down?

    After I work 2 hours with my Tm, then I noticed I loose some vacuum, after I turn off the machine, I feel the blower is going in reverse and make a weird noise. I think the bearing gets overheat, and then expand which cause slowing down, but I use mobil 1 grease. Anyway, what do you guys think?
