No, it won't fall. in fact, the magnet will not be able to be shut off until power is restored. If you are using a simple electromagnet, the load will fall when you lose power

How to test the magnetic base.

magnet bases are normally separate items to the drill unit and have their own power supply( If the power for the drill drops from excessive cutting load the power for the base would fall off and the machine would not be fixed to the job)
check with an electrician or call the service dealer for the base and get the resistance reading of a properly operating machine

Extending the life of your lift magnet

In a scrap yard or other places where lift magnets are used on a regular basis they are an essential part of daily routine. But it is also a tool that can easily be ruined, abused or broken if not taken care of properly.

A few simple tips will keep your lifting magnet up and running for longer and better.
When you are getting your magnet out over the piles that you are going to be picking up make sure that you don't power up the magnet until it is over the pile. This will ensure that the magnet doesn't pick up anything along the way to the pile. Picking up stray pieces to the pile could block the magnet and can keep you from getting a full load. When you turn on the magnet let it sit on for a few seconds allowing it to power up completely and get a maximum magnetism.

It might seem like a good idea to work with a group of small piles rather than one large pile, but when working with a magnet the opposite is true. By gathering up small piles into a single larger pile will make the job go much faster.

Only use your magnet for lifting, using it for any other purpose can break the magnet and can be very costly to replace. Using a lifting magnet as a skull-cracker or battering ram can cause pretty big damage. When you are using your lifting magnet use it with care and let it down onto a pile gently to avoid banging it up.

Every so often you should check the magnet and casing for loose or broken bolts and replace them right away. These bolts help to not only hold the magnet together but also to keep moisture from getting in and causing electric shock.

Keeping the magnet cool will not only help to keep the magnet in a good working condition, it will also make your magnet carry more. A cool magnet is able to carry much more than a hot magnet. If your magnet does begin to over heat don't use water to cool it down. Store the magnet somewhere dry and off the ground to keep it from building up moisture.

Proper care and maintenance will keep your magnet running for longer and better. Paying attention to how they are being used and keeping tabs on their state will help to keep you from needing to replace your lifting magnet or spending a lot of money on repairs.

Can lifting magnets affect someones pacemaker?

most lifting magnets only effect things that are directly under the magnet, and the magnet will be mostly concerned with the metal in the load. However, you should always post signs around to warn people who have pacemakers because it can cause problems if they get very close to the magnet

Limited power. has brand new batt. casing on the motor has magnetic properties. this tell's me that the motor is going bad. does this sound right. very slow on one, and the other just dont move but inch's.

Magnetic properties are common on all DC motors in that the field is permanent magnets that is present all the time. The rotor is energized by the battery that presents an opposite magnetic flow to the permanent field magnets that causes rotation. I suspect that your brushes that transfer electric power to the rotor is bad/inoperative and needs to be replaced or cleaned. If you look at the DC motor on one end you will find little plastic buttons that screw into the end. These buttons about 1/2in diameter hold down carbon brushes against the commentator of the rotor. If these brushes (2) do not make contact with the windings of the rotor, then nothing happens.

I need to take apart a samsung impression to replace the screen.

I don't know how to replace the screen... my screen stopped working and I was sent a new phone under warranty. Not having any way to transfer all the files and contacts, and not wanting to lose any of them, I took both phones apart, removed the "motherboard" from each and swapped them. Now I have all my files and contacts in a new "body". Do this in a tray so you don't lose any small parts. I used a large cookie sheet.

1. remove battery and SIM card
2. unscrew six screws along the top and bottom edge
3. carefully, CAREFULLY pry off back cover, starting with the bottom edge (near send and end buttons). The end where the power cable connects will be the last to pop free. The shutter button might fall off... its OK its not a complicated connection... just set it aside and put it back when you reassemble the phone.

There are 3 plugs and a magnet holding the motherboard chip in place. Assuming you are viewing the phone sideways with the battery space on the right:
-The magnet is a round metal thing on the top left
-one tiny cicrular plug on the top right
-one flat ribbon-cable plug on the bottom right
-one flat ribbon-cable plug under the chip that you can't see yet.

1. CAREFULLY pop off the round plug and the ribbon cable plug at the bottom right.
2. turn the phone around and gently lift up the chip. You will see a ribbon cable attached tho the plug on the bottom. Carefully pop that one off too.

now all you have holding the chip to the phone is the magnet. Get a pair of pliers and gently grab the magnet and pull it out of the hole while you lift the chip.
*Be careful of the speaker, which is on the bottom left. It is attached very losely but there is no need to remove it and it's attachment appears more complicated than a simple plug.

Repeat the process on both phones and swap the motherboards and re-assemble. Begin reassembly by holding the chip vertically and reattaching the ribbon plug on the bottom, and go from there.

Good luck.

if it's a small rectangular magnet that appears, in our case, fell out, when you add detergent, softener, etc...the magnet goes on the right hand bottom corner of the drawer face, straight up and down, not sideways. this is evidently some type of sensor allowing the washer to start. we had an error code of "ddo" when the magnet fell out.
