Two stroke motors are very sensitive about there timing. Most are timed at exactly top dead center. In some rare cases they are timed to fire at 1 mm or 2 mm before top dead center. It is possible that your ignition is advanced to far. When the plug fires too soon , it rotates the engine in the wrong direction. Try having someone with a dial indicator (gauge that goes through the spark hole) check the timing to see if that is an issue.

Why would a torpedo heater fan turn backwards? every time I start my all pro 115,000 heater the fan starts to spin counterclockwise and the heater wont ignite. But when manually spin the fan blade clo


If the fan has a 'run' capacitor, in rare cases, a faulty capacitor will cause a single phase motor to start in reverse. In most cases a faulty capacitor will cause the motor to only hummmm and not start or start slowly running the right direction then overheat and shut off.

See if there is a capacitor, change it first. If that doesn't fix it it sounds like its time for a new motor.

My condenser fan is running backward


An abrupt cycle of power can cause a motor to run backwards. If you turn the power off again and wait 10 seconds or so (enough for blade to stop spinning) it should run the right way. Put the capacitor back the other way and try again.

Well, lets see - posted problem with a.c.fan spinning wrong direction - had one free answer to problem - looks like I got my money's worth - It's the wind - of course - why didn't I think of...


If its a twin fan model a/c, sometimes what can happen is one of the fans is dead or not starting properly due to a failed start capacitor or the motor may be open circuit. The other fan when running creates a "vacuum" which sucks the air through the bottom ( or the other fan) which causes it to "run backwards" The suggestion from what was posted earlier ,of the wind causing it to run backwards is also possible if the start capacitor (or motor) is faulty. if the motor doesnt have the power to start up in the correct direction and the outside wind is strong enough, the fan motor can actually be "blown backwards" Hope this helps,

Older Ruud heat pump. Fan on one side runs backwards. Most peculiar, Mama. Run cap maybe?


Hi,
No the run cap will not do that...sometimes the wind can be blowing when the fan motor goes to start and then an older motor will continue to run the other way...it then will remember that and keep on running wrong...
Bottom line is that you need to replace the motor...

You can get it running right usually if you shut it down... spin it the run way and then turn on the power, but often that will only work till it goes to start again...

I have a 2000 kdx 220r the piston skirt broke cylinder is ok but skirt pieces in case do i have to split case or can i dig them out


Sorry, chances are you will never be able to fully flush the particles out without splitting the cases. Might as well change bearings at the same time, etc., etc....

Fan motor on Carrier inside runs backwards


Hi,
Sometimes a motor can start to run backwards... on an indoor fan it is usually because the air inside for some reason started the fan backwards while it was off and then when power is applied it continues to run backwards... once this happens the fan is ruined and it often will not atrt the right way even after the air problem is solved...
You will need to replace the motor and see if you can figure out why there was reversed air flow in your system...

Shows "LE" in display.


Machine has a bad motor or "stator" on this machine. It is a direct drive winding on the back of the machine. Remove the back panel, the one bolt removes the rotor then you will see the stator winding, replace it and your good to go.
