Question about Reddy Heater-30-55,000 BTU Variable

3 Answers

When plugged in the motor runs for a few seconds and then stops

I opened the pump and the vanes do not slide freely. This seems to be caused by the lubricant itself. I proceeded to clean it with solcent and it worked very well for a while and then the same thind occured.Is graphite a better lube for the vanes? the unit is 60,000 btu and not very old.

thanx, Skip

Check first the wiring on the unit, be sure that the lubricant did not damaged the rewind coil.

Check that you do not have an oil leak somewhere, if the problem disappeared after cleaning and came back shortly after usage, then it means that is dirty again.

    If there is no leak, then the pump may be slightly defective, you would need to check gas pressure to understand if pump is working well.

My aqua drive 1100 auto reset pool pump runs warm and stops after a few seconds after i switch it on then goes on after a few minutes And this continues. Why


Thermal Overload Switch: Something is creating an overload on the pump. Once it is overworked, the motor will overheat. This will be sensed by the T.O. switch. Once the switch senses that the motor has cooled, it will start again.
Reasons for overload:
  • Bearings no longer spinning freely & without restriction
  • Foreign debris in the volute, jamming against the impeller
  • Failing T.O. switch
Good Luck

Intermittent Start (expanded explanation)


Lint will jam the start/run switch on the motor. Vacuum out the motor real good and check that the switch moves freely, and all the wires to it are plugged in good.

Suds, F02, clicking sound from drain pump/motor


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F02 is a drain error in your Kenmore washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

My pool pump has a loud grinding sound


There is a number of things that could be causing the problem. The most likely thing is that a bearing on the motor is going out. The other possibility is that there's a foreign object stuck in the impeller. The best thing to do would be to DISCONNECT THE POWER and then remove one of the pipes connected to the pump. See if the impeller (the wheel with vanes on it) turns freely. If it doesn't turn freely and there's no foreign objects, then it's a bearing going bad. You should turn the pump off because it could damage itself further. Depending on your mechanical skill or availability of a local motor shop, it might be cheaper to get a new motor or whole new pump than it would be to repair it.

Cadet 5' x 36'' Whirlpool white 2771.018W. Bath is filled, turn on, buzz for a few seconds stops and dosen't do any thing. After a few minutes buzz again as if it wants to turn on but nothing.


From the sound of it the pump has seized and the thermal breaker is tripping causing the off and on buzzing sound. The problem could be in the motor or the pump attached to the motor. The easiest way to check this is to pull the pump/motor assembly out and check the rotation of the impeller. The impeller should spin freely with no drag. Most pump/motor assembly have a screw slot in the back under a plug or just open in the middle of the back of the motor. In some cases this test can be done without removing the pump/motor assembly. If the motor and pump do not spin freely, puchase a new pump and motor as one unit..

A/c unit runs but only blows into the house for about 30 seconds


Shut the power off to the unit, spin the fan blade to see if it spins freely. If it doesn't spin freely, (there appears to be a little drag when you spin it),the bearings are bad, if it does spin freely, then try moving the motor shaft from side to side if there’s any play in the shaft side to side then the bearings are worn and motor needs replaced. Then, check the capacitor, if it’s bulging even slightly, the capacitor is bad and needs replaced. Most of the time people replace the capacitor if motor seems ok. If capacitor is ok, turn power on to see if the motor is getting the proper voltage, if it is and not trying to run, then the windings are probably open, the motor's bad and needs replaced.

Master 110 torpedo heater will not start , kerosene type


Odds are, your air pump is locked up. Remove the cover on the back of the fan motor, remove the pump cover and carefully remove the air pump rotor and blades. If the motor spins freely and will start when plugged in, the pump housing plates probably have a bit of corrosion on them. Lightly clean the pump housing end plates with fine grit sandpaper, wipe clean and re-assemble. Should fix the problem. Does the breaker trip when this happens?

Drain pump starts and stops prior to final spin cycle


Jayron, is the motor jogging? start to spin, stop, start to spin stop. If so, your motor is jogging between the high and low start windings. The motor during spin should start on the high speed windings and stay there until most of the water is drained. GE came out with a new motor, harness and run cap because of this. If you have a meter, there should be a white and white/red wire going to the motor. If you have a steady 120V and it's doing this jogging, replace the motor with the kit...Let me know if this the issue, Catriver..post back.
