How do i replace the drive motor on Kenmore 80 series dryer model 11076862500

The motor is on a spring loaded pivot. DISCONNECT THE ELECTRICITY.
Remove the spring from the motor. MAKE A DRAWING OF THE BELT PATH. Simply open the wiring port and remove the wires. Make sure you connect the wires to the same marked terminals on the new motor. Also, make sure the new motor is set up for the correct voltage.

F06 code I know it its a problem with the motor drive and techometer and I want to know where it is located on the machine and what they look like can i get any images to help me

The error is an indication a motor speed problem. You will need to check the following:

- Check the wiring harness. Verify all connections between the Drive Motor, Motor Control Unit (MCU), and Central Control Unit (CCU).

NOTE: The MCU is a circuit board located in the vicinity of the Drive Motor on the bottom rear of the washer. To access the MCU, you will need to remove the back panel of the washer.

NOTE: The CCU is the main computer for the washer and is located behind the wash tub. You will need to remove the top panel to access the CCU. This is accomplished by removing the three screws in the back of the washer that hold the top in place. Once the screws are removed, the top panel will slide back, then lift off.

- Check the Drive Motor. Perform a continuity check of the Drive Motor windings. Remove the connector plug and check across pins 1 to 2, 2 to 3, and 1 to 3. All readings should be approximately 6 ohms. HINT: You can also take this reading by removing connector 2 from the MCU and measuring across pins 1, 2 and 3. If the readings are good, this will also prove the wiring and connector good.

- Check the MCU. The connectors are numbered 1 to 3 (L to R). That is, with the MCU installed, connector 1 is on the bottom, followed by 2 in the middle, and 3 on top.

Connector 1 - is the serial communications link between the MCU and CCU and has three wires. At the opposite end, this will be the 2nd connector from the rear on the left-hand side of the CCU.
Connector 2 - is the link between the MCU and the Drive Motor. Pins 1, 2, and 3 on this connector are the Drive Motor windings. Pins 4 and 5 are for the tachometer.
Connector 3 - is the primary power connector. Pins 1 to 2 should read 120VAC with the door in the locked position. Pin 3 is ground. At the opposite end, this is the 4th connector from the right on the front of the CCU.

NOTE: All the connector pins are numbered R to L.

If your continuity readings are normal for the Drive Motor and you have verified all connectors, replace the MCU.

If any of the Drive Motor windings indicate readings higher that 6 ohms, replace the Drive Motor.

Belt is slipping and I need to know what maintenance I should be doing on this model as I have no manual for it.

Hello, There is no maintenace required. Some people like to oil the walk belt, The manual say to do this annually. To do this you loosen the walk belt and applty some synthetic oil to the walk board under the walk belt, then tighten the belt and the belt will distribute the oil where it needs to go. As far as the walk belt, just make sure that is stays in the center of the walk board. Now your front roller and drive belt. The roller does not get serviced, it has perminently sealed bearings. The drive belt usually lasts for many years, if you remove the motor hood and see alot of black dust, it will be the belt. At that point you need to see why it is comming apart/rubbing. After you determine that, you would want to replace it.

The slipping you are describing could be the drive belt slipping on the front roller or the drive pully on the front roller. To find out you need to remove the motor hood nad get on it and look. What you will be watching is the drive belt as it goes from the drive motor to the drive pully. When you try to stop the walk belt you will either stop the drive belt or stop the walk belt. If you stop both, the drive belt is at fault, if the motor keeps turning. If you stop the motor, the motor or the controller is bad. If you stop the walkbelt and not the drivebelt you have a bad drive pully on the front roller, and need to replace the front roller. When you do this you need to remove the drive belt, this is a ggod time to replace it.

Hope this helps, rate my solution if it helped you. Thanks, Matt

How to replace cam drive on andis super 2 speed

ok you need to take the upper cassing off, remove the hinge assembly and the circuit board now the motor unit should come away from the lower cassing.
remove the clips holding the carbon brushes in place beware there are springs behind these clips, remove the two long black clips holding the front and rear motor frames to the field coil and then pull apart. This will allow access to the armature and then simply unscrew the drive cam.
Totaly dismantle all the parts of your Andis AGC clipper.

How to remove and replace a motor belt on proform

Hello there. To replace the drive belt (motor belt) follow this procedure.
1)Remove power to the machine
2)remove the hood cover (3 screws on the rear of the cover)
3) loosen the adjusting bolts for the walk belt located on the opposite end of the walk belt from the hood assembly. Loosen the adjusting bolts 10 full revolutions. This will loosen the walk belt.
4) You should then walk the drive belt off of the front roller/pulley assembly by pushing the belt to one side while turning the motor. If you are nable to do this you will need to loosen the 2 bolts holding the drive motor in place.
5) After removing the drive belt you can then slide the drive roller to the side out of the frame and it will slide out the other side of the bracket. This will allow the belt to be removed from the front roller and be replaced.
If you had to loosen the bolts holding the motor you will need to retension the drive belt by pulling the drive motor back while tightening the bolts. This will require another person to help tension while you tighten the bolts.
You can then retension the walk belt using the adjusting bolts and retightening them 10 revolutions.
Good Luck Tim

How to take apart to change motor model number11024294300

If you are referring to the drive motor, the following link provides step-by-step instructions on how to access and replace it:

I would also recommend you replace the motor coupling at the same time, since you will have the motor removed. The part number is 285753A. The next link explains how to repace the coupler:

If you have any questions, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If the drive motor is not what you are referrring to, please post back and let me know.

Hi , i have a skilsaw 3400,but the blade is to hard when hand turning it, want to know if it uses ball bearing or another stuff. thanks. pedro

If it is direct drive blade mounted to motor) you will have to remove the motor and check the bearings. Most newer electric motors have sealed bearings. I would suggest that you remove the motor and take it ot an electrical shop (call around first) and have them replace the bearings, clean it up and replace the carbon brushes. Anothe alternative is look for a replacement motor through places like Grangers, Norther Tools, etc.

If it is belt driving check all the components (pulle bearings, etc) for friction.

good luck....gary

Motor runs but the drive drum that hold the sanding belt does not turn.

Instead of removing the drum, remove the belt and the cover over the gearbox. The gearbox cover is normaly fixed in place by screws around the drive pulley. There may be a couple of screws under the pulley, if so they can be accessed via holes in the pulley wheel itself. Check for worn or stripped gears. These gears can be replaced if need be, but if this is the case make sure you remove and clean out all the grease first and replace that aswell as it may contain bits of teeth that have come off the faulty gear. As far as I know belt sander drive rollers can not be removed without removing the drive inside the gearbox first.
