SOURCE: 1/3 hp drill press motor runs hot and very slow.

Look instead at the motor and drill post bearings. Remove the belt to see if the motor runs correctly with no load. If it still hums and gets hot, check that the motor itself turns freely (when off). If the motor seems to be ok, turn the driven pulley by hand--it should also turn freely. The capacitor is usually a starting assist, not running. To test, wrap a small rope several turns (when pulled must turn in the normal direction) around the small motor pulley and pull smartly while turning the motor on. If it now comes up to speed, the capacitor has lost capacitance. Electronic parts suppliers like Jameco or Mouser have such items.

SOURCE: drill press motor hums and barely turns

The motor has either got worn brushes or more likely the windings have been attacked by moisture and gotten the dreaded "green spot" (corrosion).

Worn brushes can be replaced if the commutator is still good. But failed motor windings require a new or reconditioned electric motor.

Found a used Home Master KFF6 Drill Press; thought I scored big when I got it for $50. Motor hums, spindle and chuck don't turn. Can I troubleshoot and fix myself, or can I get it repaired in CT?


The humming motor is that it could not get a turn direction because of only ac and a bad centrifugal or start capacitor if it hums try to turn it clockwise on the chuck to see if it will run .

The start capacitor is built into the motor and you will need to replace the motor. Here is the motor if you should need it.

Dremel 3100 won't release the drill bit. Button at the top is pressed in and won't come out.


The button is only to keep the shaft from turning while you loosen the collet (the nut) with the little wrench. THEN the tool comes out.

It's the fan motor. A relay problem would cause the motor not to run at all.

Drill press


Release the belts and check if you can turn the chuck by habd, if the chuck won;t turn, two things could be wrong, 1) the quill bearings are bad or 2) the shaft that runs down thru the quill could ve rusted causing a restriction, if that's the case, WD 40 should loosen it.
