Motor will not turn blade

Blade turns by hand, flip power switch, and motor trys to go but sounds like something is holding it and pops reset button? Is this windings in the motor or bearings etc.????

    I have found that the bearings on the motor are not sealed, therefore I replaceed the frozen bearing in the front of the motor with sealed ones, and the rear one also, since it was out and opened up. $14

SOURCE: My tablesaw wont speed up and run. Bosch 4000 ten inch. It makes a klunk and starts to turn and slowly speeds up until its running, but still makes a knocking sound

Is it spinning the blade at all? If it is then it is unlikely to be an electrical fault. Have you considered a motor bearing fault? If the motor bearings are worn, it could turn freely by hand, but when powered up it would stutter and stall. The motor is basically a big electro-magnet so if the armature has enough lateral movement, when it is magnetized it could rub against the stator.
If the machine is buzzing, but not spinning the blade it is more than likely going to be caused by a faulty capacitor as this is the component that gives the motor the initial 'kick' in the right direction to get it spinning.

The 'start capacitor' has failed. It's under the little cover located on the side of the motor. Remove and go to a 'motor rewind or repair shop'. If you don't have a motor shop near by, go to grainger.com. The cap has a microfarad rating (uF) and a voltage rating, go by those two ratings to replace.

My guess is that the motor is bad. Have you changed the brushes? Or if it is a brushless motor that you may need a new motor.

Go to searspartsdirect.com and put in your model number. Look at the motor and wiring section. Look at item 16. The motor overload protector. (probably your reset button) WIth saw unplugged, unwire one sid of this switch and test with an ohm meter. You should read through the switch. If it is open then that's why the saw doesn't work. Many of this type of oveload requires quite a push to reset as you're flexing a klixon disc back to make contact. If is open and you can't reset, it's available there although a bit high priced.

With the blade and nut off the arbor, turn the motor on and VERY CAREFULLY turn or bump the arbor in the direction it is supposed to turn. If the motor spins up to speed you have a bad start capacitor. I have never been able to find start capacitors for Craftsman motors as a seperate part so you may have to replace the whole motor. Check with any local electrician shops first as they may have the capacitor you need.

Why doesn't drum turn when the start button is pushed?


try turning the drum by hand while on dry cycle> just tape shut or hold door switch in by hand then have someone turn the drum? see if it starts? if so ur motor windings may be bad ad not pushing enough power to run machine, also check the thermal fuse and other thermostats as u may have shorted them somehow? lastly check the belt and tensioner as the motor switch may have switched off if there was a problem with the belt

Reset button not working


Try reset button on bottom of disposal.
Following link has full troubleshoot resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-repair-and-install-Garbage-disposal.html
If reset will not restore functionality, check that unit is getting power, and then check that unit is receiving 80% rated voltage. Replace disposal.

usually the humming sound is coming from the motor,try this,open the door,turn the drum with one hand and hold the door switch in with your other hand and have someone else push the start button at the same time,this might help the motor turn on but if it does you need a new motor,if you can't turn the drum you could have something stuck in the blower wheel or something jammed in the motor like a broken belt but like i said a humming sound is usually the motor.

If you plug it into the original outlet under the sink and flip the switch, nothing happens? No motor sound? And when you plug it into a different outlet, you can hear the motor, but the blades don't turn?
If this is the situation, I would guess that there's a problem with the insinkerator. Something stuck in it, or it's otherwise jammed. This could have tripped a breaker.
If the breaker failed or the circuit wasn't wired properly, this jammed condition could also have resulted in the wire at the switch or under-sink receptacle burning off of the terminals.
Turn off the circuit at the panel, double check that it's off, and remove the switch and the receptacle to see if the wires are still connected. If they've burned off, do not re-connect them. You should consult a licensed electrician to correct a hazardous situation.

The disposal only hums. I can turn the blades inside so there is no food stuck. I know there is a reset button but cant locate it.


I had the same problem, it was just humming, then after a few second the on board circuit breaker would cut out. After a little while I could hit the reset button and it would just hum again.

It turns out that the base of the disposal was jammed. There are 2 blades on the top that should spin freely, but the base plate that the blades are attached to also spins. In fact, that's what the motor drives. The two blades on top are not powered, they just flip back and forth as the base spins. So get a broom handle or a strong wooden spoon, stick it down in there, and try to pry the base plate free so it spins. That should do it.

There should be a reset button (circuit breaker) on the bottom of the unit. It sounds more like the blades are stuck. Pull the plug on the unit and use an allen wrench on the manual blade turner on the bottom of the unit. If the blades are stuck, you will have to try and loosen them with the allen wrench. If you do get them loose, the question then is what was holding them. Could be debris in the ISE or something broken like a blade. Keep the unit unplugged when working on it.

Humming noise when turn on, but blade/motor not moving. Tried reset button and turn the motor with allen wrench. What else can I do?


its stuck, is it still under warranty. either the motor is bad or something is jammed in there. you need to turn the blades by hand or allen , if nothing, then the motor is somehow bad, need to replace.
