Motor won't spin with power

Motor isn't seized. it spins by hand. when it powers on, something buzzes, and still no motor spin. the capacitor right? is it a run or a start?

    It would be the start capacitor, but this motor may have a centrifugal start switch.

    is the belt between the motor and the spindle under proper tension?
    what you're describing sounds like the motor is spinning but the belt isn't delivering to the spindle..
    Also check the set screws on the pulleys on their respective shafts.
    One could be spinning free of the shaft...

    Please let me know what you find out....

Blower won't run


usually a "humming motor" indicates either a bad capacitor or a defective motor. With the power off try to spin the blower wheel...it should spin freely. If it is tight or wont spin and there are no obstructions stopping it (like an air filter sucked into blower or other debris) then the motor most likely is seized. If the blower wheel spins free then you may have a bad capacitor. Keep in mind, just because the blower spins easy doesn't mean the motor is good. I have had motors that are defective that dont seize up but most of the time the blower wheel will not spin free if the motor fails.

The machine doesn't spin properly and doesn't drain the water


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't spin 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.

Motor Coupling If the washer won't spin 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 transmission. Another common problem is the lid switch.

Drive Belt If the washer won't spin, check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin properly.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer spin 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 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.

Drive Block If the washer won't spin the drive block might be worn out or may have come loose. Underneath the agitator the drive block connects the inner tub (the one that spins around) to the transmission. If the drive block wears out the transmission shaft will still spin but the tub may not - or it may spin slowly. This also usually causes a lot of noise. The drive block is relatively easy to replace.

Clutch Assembly If the washer won't spin, the clutch assembly might be worn out. The clutch assembly makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may prevent the tub from spinning. The clutch is not repairable, if it is loud or not working properly it will need to be replaced.

Clutch Band kit If the washer won't spin, the clutch band kit might be worn out. The clutch makes the connection between the transmission and the inner tub. It is designed to allow the tub to get up to the proper spin speed gradually. As the clutch wears out it may prevent the tub from spinning. If the washer won't spin, this clutch band kit may need to be replaced.

Drive Motor If the washer won't spin 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 It will have to be replaced.

Tub Bearing If the washer won't spin the tub bearing might have seized. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

Tub Seal and Bearing Kit If the washer won't spin the tub seal and bearing might have seized. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

Bearing If the washer won't spin the bearing might have seized. This is not common. The bearing doesn't require any normal maintenance. They generally go bad when the tub seal fails and allows water to leak past into the bearing.
Basket Drive If the washer won't spin the basket drive clutch might be worn out. The basket drive sits on top of the transmission and engages with the inner tub. If the basket drive wears out the tub won't spin.

Basket Drive Hub Kit If the washer won't spin the basket drive hub might be worn out. The hub is a set of plastic gears underneath the agitator. The basket drive hub kit is easy to replace with standard hand tools.
Transmission If the washer won't spin the transmission might be worn out or defective. There are numerous more likely causes when a washer won't spin, which should be checked first.

My kenmore series 70 washer wont drain or spin i jumpered out the lid switch but it still dont work


Does your machine make any noise(humming or slight whine)? If so then something may be seized, try spinning the tub by hand, if it moves then it may then be the motor itself is seized. Test power(with ac 120v meter) at motor, which should be located underneath the machine, just under tub.If you have power right to motor, then it is very likely that it is your motor. If no power to the power, then something in your selector switch has malfunctioned; continue to follow your power supply until you find the short.

Have a Ruud Achiever Model number UAKA-037JAZ that won't run since yesterday. When the air kicks on it simply makes a buzzing noise and the fan doesn't spin. Can anyone help?


try spinning by hand when the unit make the buzzing sound. to see if the capacitor is bad. If the fan runs replace the cap. If not motor probably is bad. See if it spins freely. this is a good starting place. need to check if the buzzing is the contactor and there is no power to the condensor. The contactor will buzz even though the main breaker is off or tripped

Fisher and Paykel Dryer will not spin, motor buzzing


take top off. set it going and give the drum a push by hand. if it starts and keeps going then the fault is the motor capacitor - cheap part

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.

Kenmore series 80 washer only works right on hevy duty load


CHECK SEE IF MOTOR IS SEIZED BY TIPPING MACHINE FORWARD AND SEE IF YOU CAN TURN THE MOTOR BY HAND. IF MOTOR TURNS FREELY , YOU HAVE A START CAPACITOR PROBLEM.
