How many amps does a 5.5 cu ft danby freezer use. Start up and running amps.??


easiest way to do this is look at the label on the compressor. I usually lists RLA. FLA is usually 5 to 7 times the RLA. For example, if RLA is 3.0, the the FLA is 15-21 amps. FLA is actually LRA for about 2 seconds.

Hoover 800 rla. Agitator spinning rapidly in one direction and tangling up everything. Been great for 10 years now gone mental. Please advise


In most washers, the reversing mechanism in the transmission broke. You probably will have to replace it.

Asko w620 washer will not agitate or spin


No agitation or spin? try these:

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor coupling might have failed. The motor coupling connects the motor to the washer transmission. It is designed to fail if the washer is overloaded in order to protect both the motor and
Drive Belt If the washer won't spin or agitate, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin or agitate the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.

Stator Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the stator assembly might be burned out. The stator is essentially one half of a motor, it interacts with the tub by creating a strong electro-magnet. If the stator burns out the washer won't spin or agitate. Check the stator for continuity. This part is often misdiagnosed.

Transmission or clutch assembly not engaging due to going out or slipping.


Door or Lid Latch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin or agitate the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Motor Control Board If the washer won't spin or agitate the motor control board might be defective. The motor control board provides power to the motor as well as direction and force. If the motor control board is defective the washer may not work at all or function properly.

My capicitor is obviously bad considering how swollen it is. The problem is that it is also rusted and the numbers can't be seen. My local parts place tells me that they can't figure out which...


Scott,

You have a 3 1/2 ton unit. A safe rule of thumb would be 45 mfd on the compressor, and 7.5 mfd on the fan motor. If you have a amp meter, you can replace the capacitor, clamp the amp meter around the compressor common wire, and make sure the amperage is less than RLA . Same on the motor. You can find RLA (running load amps) on the data sticker of the unit. Hope this helps. Mark

I have a wood planer with a 3HP 220 single phase motor wired to 20amp circuit breaker in my house. I usually run the planer off a 12gauge extention wire about 30ft from the house plug. I would like to...


Look on the planer to see what the R.L.A. are, for example 16.0 amps. Set a box with 2- 20 amp fuses, or a double pole 20 amp breaker. Do not exceed the amperage of what the planer says on its data plate. If the R.L.A. is 10.0 to 19.3, use a 20 amp.
Sincerely,

Compressor RLA (rated load amps) meaning the amps the compressor will draw at a certain outdoor temperature usssually 95°.

Slow agitator in Sears Kenmore 800 Series washing machine


This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (110.#######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive washers use a "Motor Coupler" between the motor and transmission.

It's used as a fail safe device and consists of three parts.

Two of the parts are the same, plastic units with three prongs that fit on one of the motor output shafts and the other on the transmission input shaft. Between them is a rubber piece with six holes.

The power from the motor is transmitted through the rubber piece to the transmission.

The other shaft on the motor directly drives the pump. .

If the motor coupler is broken, or worn, the motor may not be able to send full power to the transmission for agitating or spinning.

See the following for how to remove the cabinet, pump, motor and motor mounting plate to inspect and replace the motor coupler.

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

If the coupler looks damaged, it's a relatively easy fix.

Pry the plastic pieces from the motor and transmission. Some people use a claw hammer but I've found that using a small (6 inch) pry bar works well.

Carefully fit the plastic pieces over the motor and transmission shafts and press them in place (Use a 1/2" of larger socket to put pressure equally around the pieces.

Put the rubber piece on the transmission plastic piece.

Replace the motor mounting plate.

Carefully line up the plastic prongs on the motor based plastic piece to the three un-used holes in the rubber piece. If they don't line up right, the coupler could be damaged.

Mount the motor, don't forget the two screws, put the pump back on the motor and use its' clips.

Put the cabinet back on, don't forget to plug the lid switch back in and re-mount the console.

Hoover 800 RLA washing machine spins slow or not at all.


Hi,
It sounds like the electric motor is dying!
Either pay a serviceman to come in to confirm this or buy a new machine.
New motors can cost anywhere from $380AUD to $600AUD.
