GE duet electric dryer. Airflow is erratic/sputtery.


M Pandora,
The squirrel cage fan would not have any bearings. When you turned the fan and you said it did not turn freely, you may have also been turning the entire drum because you would have been turning the motor shaft which then turns the belt and pulley. Not necessarily a bad thing. When you shut the dryer off, does it make a rattling noise as it comes to a stop? If it does, you may have a stripped hub in the center of your fan, and it will need to be replaced. Another way you can tell if it might be stripped is have someone watch the drum while you turn the fan, and if the drum does not move while you are spinning the fan, the hub is stripped. Those fans have a flat spot in the hub and they can get rounded out and that can cause the symptoms that you are describing. Hope this helps!

Amana heat pump emergency heat comes on but blower will not start. The call for heat comes in and the heating element(s) glow red for a few seconds and then there is a "click" and the heating...


Check the blower motor capicator. It should be mounted close to the motor with 2 wires to it (brown,brown/white).
Turn the blower on the thermostat and spin the squirrel cage by hand and see if it runs after by itself. If it does then definitely the capicator is bad .If it still doesn't run then check to see if there is voltage going to motor.
If thermostat is calling for fan and there is voltage present at the motor terminal then the motor is bad

If the fan spin freely then the capacitor could be bad. Otherwise, if it spin with difficulty then it need to be cleaned and lubbed.

Trolling motor will not spin with out being turned by hand.


Take the prop off and make sure the pin that goes through the shaft is in place. The prop could also not be sitting on the pin proper.

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.
