Could be 2or3 things.Check to make sure you have the correct voltage to motor.If a central unit should be 240v.Check fan capacitor usually a 5mfd or 7.5mfd these start and run the fan motor.This cap might be a dual capacitor,one side to the fan the other side to the compressor.Then there is the fan motor itself.With power off to unit,spin the blades by hand,should rotate and spin freely.grab the fan shaft and blades.You should be able to lift the blades up and down.Try to move the shaft side to side,if there is any play,the bearings are bad,thus the motor needs to be replaced.Hope this helps.

Replace the fan motor capacitor. If that does not correct the problem you will have to replace the fan motor.

Soleus Air FSH-40G fan would not start. The bad seems harder to rotate. what could have gone wrong? How to fix?


First unplug the fan for safety. Next add a couple drops of motor oil on the shaft that turns with the fan blade. Tip the fan blade at about a 45 degree angle when adding the motor oil. Spin the blade by hand at that same angle to allow the motor oil to flow down the shaft, inside where you cannot see the shaft. It should start turning by hand a lot easier now.

Fan motor is probably bad, if it is under 5 years old the parts are under warranty. Do not run the unit for very long without the fan working as it can damage the compressor.

Hi,
The problem is probably in the button that you pull and push to engaged and disengage the PTO... If you wiggle the button or try to pull it slowly, you may find a spot where it will work. But the button has gone bad and will need to be replaced.
If you are comfortable with wiring, you could jumper the wires and getting it working, but it would be a very temporary and possibly dangerous fix...

Saw wont maintain speed and power while cutting. I have to push everything I cut very slowly. Even when just trimming the a blades with off.


It sounds like you have a loose fan belt from the motor to the saw which would cause the saw blade to not turn at the correct speed.

Fan will not spin unless kick-started


The bearings are dry. They are not really made to re oil. You can try...Try to take the ends off and get some 3 in1 oil in. That's all it needs

Ceiling fan turns slowly


If you've had it for a few years, the bearings are probably getting bad (dry).
Always start a fan on high---then go to the speed you want, only the high speed windings will handle start-up.

Motors work with magnets. These may be permanent, or more commonly elecromagnets. These are the rotor, and the field magnets. Another type of motor just uses a field magnet and iduces flux in the rotor.

Either way, it sounds like one of the main coil windings has either burnt out or mechanically broken.

If you want to remove it and test the coils with a meter (check resistance of each) this should show the fault.

If a coils burn't out. it's scrap .
