How long can a musso 622 engine run without water


Hi Stefan:
I would not even consider trying to run the engine without coolant.
Diesel engines run hot and the engine will be ruined if run without coolant.

Can I Run 3 Phase Motor On Y Or Star Connection Without A DELTA?


Some motors need a Y and Delta, with a special switch, to start up, you start with the Y. the motor starts turning, but does not give full power. after a few seconds (depends what the manual says) you switch to delta, to get full power. To let it run on full power in Y you need 1,4 times the voltage.
If everything runs fine, you won't have damaged anything.

Accidently got 220 volts for 3 seconds, then shut off. will not re-start, how should I proceed?


Look for reset button, hopefully reset would have tripped. If compressor will not power on, remove cover to pressure switch and examine contacts for burned. If burned, temp. connect 110v to motor side of switch, (black- black and white-white) if motor runs ok replace switch. If motor does not run check capacitor for proper valve, replace as needed. If cap tests ok and motor will not run check motor windings for melted white strings that bind wiring. If windings look burned most likely you will need to find used motor from repair center.

Karcher 320H i have the same pressure coming out as i put in from the tap, the motor is running ok


You have an air lock in the pump and or piping.
  • Open all drain cocks and remove the spray hose
  • Connect the inlet water hose and turn it on slow
  • allow water to run from all open ports for 2 minutes or so
  • leave the water running - close drains start motor
  • Shut down reconnect spray hose restart
  • You should now be smiling

Washer agitates, drains OK, but spin doesn't start


Timer is defective. Your unit has a netural drain. When finished agitating, the shuts down and then starts up reversing to drain and spin. On the initial reverse start, the water drains without the transmission spinning. After a timed period 3-4 minutes, the timer is supposed to pause, stopping the motor for a few seconds. When the motor stops again, the transmission shift to the spin cycle and when the timer resumes power tothe motor it should spin. You are doing the same thing when you lift the lid...stopping the timer and then the tranny shifts and when you set the lid down, the washer spins. Replace the timer.......

Maytag mah4000aww, tub overfills


Have you changed your door latch wax motor yet... If you have the brown actuator pin then you want to chuck that wax motor out of there quicker than spit! You want the redesigned wax motor with the black actuator pin. I know of folks where the wax motor failure caused the timer and /or water valves to act up... See www.neptunewaxmotor.com for disassembly photos and other Neptune information.

GE Nautilus 4800 Dishwasher/Shuts off/ No water draining out


It may be the motor start capacitor or the motor or the wiring to it. Some units have a built-in switch that shuts the unit off if the motor doesn't start turning after a short interval. However, if it drains it usually means the motor runs enough to pump it out. These units usually stop draining when the fill switch opens at the lower level.
