    check continuity from the black and white to ground-------you should have NO continuity if you do it is shorted. check the voltage to the motor to be sure it has the rated power to it to operate it

    either 240 or 120v whatever the motor runs on or is rated to have

    check capacitor if it has one

Lennox XC21 (7 yrs old) compressor motor does not turn fan blades


Check the motor by hand to see if it turns freely, if it does then the issue is the motor controller not being able to sense where the motor is. Check for 240 Volts on the red wires and then check for 24 volts dc between black and blue and black and yellow.

My garbage disposal isn't working. it doesn't even make a sound when i hit the switch. i checked the circuit breaker and it's not that...i pushed the reset button underneath and it didn't help, either.


On the bottom of the disposal there is a small red reset switch. Push it in and see if it stays. Turn on switch and see what happens. If it hums or buzzes take a 1/4 inch allen wrench and insert it into opening in the center of the bottom. Turn wrench back and forth while running hot water through disposal to help clear any blockage. Turn on switch on and see if thats helped. Thank you.

My pool pump is humming then turns off


If the armature will rotate freely and the bearings are not frozen, then it's probably a bad start capacitor. They are not very expensive compared to a new motor so it might be worth replacing it to see if it's bad.

HELP! Frigidaire Fridge FRS26HF7BB0 losing coldness and buzzing


That noise is typical when the compresor is trying to start but it doesn't , it could be the condensing fan motor that doesn't work and the compresor goes off on overload ; a common problem with this compresors is the relay (mounted at the side of the compresor behind a black plastic cover) goes bad , this you can replace is about $20 , and if still the compresor won't start you will need to put another one and this is an expensive job.

Condenser coil fan not runningon GE pds22scrrss


The fan can rotates freely even if there's no power to it(fan probably burn out).You can check if power is going to the fan motor by folowing the two wires fron the motor picking up power from the compresor connections under a black plastic cover on the side of the compresor.If you nave power going to the fan its needs to be replaced.

Refrigerator continuously cycles


This is a generic problem with Whirpool refrigerators.The start relay for the compresor(located on the side of the compresor under the black plastic cover) is probably bad ,replace it(about $ 20) with a new one(write down where the wires go) that should solve the problem if not the compresor is bad.

Kersone reddy heater won't start, just buzzes


The R150B uses motor #097308-06, has a split phase motor. The secondary windings, which give the armature a jump-start, have gone bad. The motor is not serviceable. Try reddyparts.com - they seem to have the most parts.

Wiring the replacement 3 speed switch (fan motor)


I called King of Fans and the rep that I spoke with gave me the correct wiring for the 3 speed switch:

L White
1 Yellow
2 Blue
3 Black

The problem is that after I wired it this way I am getting the same result (off on 3 settings and a motor hum on 1 setting). So, either the Westinghouse switch that I bought at Home Depot is not compatible or it is the capacitor. The saga continues.
