SOURCE: The power is in but the blade wont move

Your best bet is to UNPLUG the fan, remove the protected cage and the cover that protects the motor and take a can of compressed air and blow out any dust that you happen to see that has built up in the fan. Then look for a bushing that is towards the front of the shaft and the rear of the shaft and place a drop of 3 in 1 oil where the bushings are located. I would place a couple drops on the front and rear shaft, spin the shaft by hand, move it back and forth, then then put it back together again and try it.
This should extend the life of your fan as long as the motor isn't burnt up, and the fan hasn't been left on for a long period of time when the blades where not moving.
Hope this helps.
Keep in mind.. a little maintenance goes a long way.

SOURCE: When I turn my fan on, the motor starts but I must

Lubricate/spin the shaft (by hand) on both ends -- it may be gunked up.

If that doesn't solve the problem, it's the start capacitor inside the motor housing. Probably needs replacing.

More info, let me know.

Battery cables get hot

The cables typically get hot from too much current. If the starter motor is frozen and can not turn you get high current. This could be in the starter, but also if the engine itself is frozen. Push on the cooling fan blades to see if the engine still moves. Remove the starter motor to check it.

Motor spins but blade doesn't

If there is a shaft sleeve available from Kitchen Aid you will need to replace that and most likely the chopping blade if there is any damage up inside it.

Hi, my LCD Polaroid FLM-3701 went through a power outage and now doesn't get power any more. The power led doesn't show any light. I saw a capacitor repair kit available, and four 680 uF capac

The power supply fuse should be next the the ac input plug on the power supply. It should be a long cylinder type fuse, probably a T6.3AH/250V. You will want to replace those caps ASAP

Looking for a manual ..i tried www.managemyhome ,,butthey did not have my model #944607042 thanks

How long has it been since the device? Maybe the engine is "frozen". Put it in the highest gear and take the brake off. Then try to move the mower or whatever it is by hand. If you can get the vehicle to move, then try starting it. If that doesn't work, then you need to see if you're getting power from the battery to the starter motor. Check the starter relay if it has one, and check all connections from the battery and to the starter motor to make sure they are tight and clean.

Amana central air codensor motor runs for twenty minutes and shuts off ! new motor ,new cantactor , and new capaciter ?

Hi, not sure which motor you are talking about, the indoor blower, or the outdoor condenser fan motor? Doesnt matter. If the motor is shutting down, its overloading and going off on its internal overload. Cools down, resets and repeats this again. Make sure you have not miss wired it. Even though the run cap and motor is new, doesn't always mean they are good. You need to look at the R.L.Amps on the motors data plate, to see what it is rated for when running.You MUST have an amp probe meter to check each hot leg to this motor to see how many amps it is pulling while under a load. If it is the condenser fan motor, and if the blade/prop is not in the right place on the 1/2 " shaft, you can move it up or down to adjust the amperage on the motor. When you do this, it causes the motor to draw either more or less air across the coil, which you need less to reduce the amperage and load on this motor. I have seen this happen many many times, but like I said you will need a amp probe meter to see what the motor is drawing. If you dont have one, just move the blade a 1/2" in one direction or the other until the motor keeps on running. This will work, just time consuming, and you will never really no how many amps its drawing.You can pick up a good clap type amp meter at Sears, a Craftsman for around $29.99. It is well worth the bucks to have. You can also check the uf's on the run cap. The voltage 370 or 440, food for thought is you can always use a cap thats higher in voltage but never lower. Make sure you have the correct MFD as I am sure you know this.So, check the voltage from the new contactor to the motor, the run cap, and most important is how many amps it is drawing and you can wrap it up. I wish you the best. Please let me know, keep me posted, and rate me if you please to.

I turn the key and dont do eniting ,after 3-4 times she star

If you mean that you turn the key to start but the starter motor doesn't engage the flywheel until the key is turned to start several times, try this. Look under the front of the car and locate the starter motor, which will be at the front of the oil pan. Tap the end of the starter motor with the handle of a large screwdriver a couple of times. If the starter then engages, the starter motor is bad. What happened to the last 99 Caravan (w/175,000 miles) was that a large amount of oily gunk had made its way into the part of the starter that housed the motor brush ***'y, preventing the motor brushes from moving freely and keeping one or more of them from making contact with the armature. The fix was to spray cleaner into the unit. That freed up the brushes and allowed the starter to work. That was a year ago. If you mean that the motor turns over, but doesn't start until you have tried 3 or for times, then I suspect a fuel problem. I have seen a problem where the fuel drains out of the fuel line when the car is off so that repeatedly turning the key to start runs the fuel pump which must refill the fuel line before it can reach the engine. Check the fuel pump, the fuel pump relay, etc. Or, locate the fuel pump relay, under the hood, on the driver side fender. Carefully remove the relay and remove the black plastic cover by lifting the two tabs. Carefully reinsert the relay, sans cover, and have an assistant turn on the key. If the contact "pulls in" then have your assistant remove the gas cap and listen as you manually close the contact with your finger. ( It's okay, the 12 volts won't shock you!) If they can hear a whirring sound, then the pump is working. Have someone start the car while you keep the relay engaged. Hope this helps. Dano

Motor stopped running. There is apart encased in black housing with the nomenclature 3.5uF-U/250WV.AC. Is this a capacitor and should it be replaced?

Yes, that is a capacitor...exactly where is it located? It could be a starter capacitor. Try this, plug it in and turn the switch on then push one of the fan blades in the direction it would normally turn; if the fan starts up then it is definitely a starter capacitor issue. Unless you have extensive electrical/electronic experience, I would advise you to not try to repair this on your own, rather bring it to a reputable appliance repair shop in your area.
