Union City, Michigan
Not resolved

I purchased a Weston food dehydrator thru Cabela's. It was 5 years old and the fan motor gave out.

I called Cabela's and they referenced me to Weston and Weston's phone number. I called Weston twice. The first time I was told I could not get the fan/motor because of a safety issue. The second time I called and spoke with a rep, the rep told me that the unit was sold as a single unit [apparently with no user serviceable parts].

(It would have been nice to know that prior to purchase.) I told the rep that because they could not provide me with a motor/fan that I had a $150 piece of junk sitting there. Anyway, I wanted people to know about this prior to buying a food dehydrator.

If it is a Weston, I suggest you steer clear of it. There are many other namebrands out there you can go after.

We have had the exact same experience with the same feeling that we have now a piece of junk. We did not buy it at Cabela's however and only had it for one year


I agree with this customer. I'm in the same situation.


I have the same dehydrator and the fan motor went out, and the same NO parts. I will never shop at Cabelas again.

BAD they treat, think you are stupid. Did find a fan motor at a local shop.


I bought 2 digital 10 shelf Cabela brand dehydrators. They worked great until the plastic trays started to break.

I can't find any source of replacement trays. On contacting Cabelas customer service I was told that I could get them at $24 each or $240 for 10 plus tax and shipping. The dehydrator complete unit sells for $169.

Guess they don't sell many replacements. Must assume they are throw away units.

my motor crapped out on the second time i used it. Just added a drop of oil on the fan motor shaft. This fixed it for awhile, still had to add oil again after 5th time of use.
