I documented my LED upgrade (see below link). Might have some info you are looking for. But this only applies to my 2018 Ariens Platinum 30 blower. If different then you got to measure. https://www.dropbox.com/s/7qbegrrqux...grade.pdf?dl=0

Yes, you can burn up a stator. I should have taken a picture of what a melted 18 watt stator looks like before I pitched it out. The moral of that story was that in line fuses are much cheaper and far easier to replace than stators. I went 2 winters with no lights because I decided to use two 18 watt lights which actually worked well for about 5 hours before it smoked the stator lol.
