You will need to install a special controller if you change to a 2 speed. Because there will be an additional wire (4 wires vs. 3) with a 2nd speed to operate.
If you go with a variable speed motor, then again, a special controller will be required to utilize a reo-stat type of switch with will allow a selection of slowly increasing voltage to motor which will in turn allow the motor to spin quicker.

Instead of the hassle above, just go with a "One deal package" all nicely bundled ready for installation. It has it all within it - What...? A variable speed complete pump! That will be the sweetest thing for you if you are looking to go that route!

The blower doesn't work for the a/c


Check fuses, then the relay. Fused power to the lower speeds, and a relay sends power to the fan for high speed. Some cars have an electronic blower motor for a variable speed system. The motor could be bad, or the motor board could be bad, if you have a variable speed blower motor. Very expensive to replace. 250 to 400 dollars. good luck.

Some companies do sell a variable speed kit. It includes the motor and controls. Get your model and serial number of your unit and contact your local Payne dealer. The can locate the proper kit if available for you.

Code p1472


could be a number of things; cam shaft position sensor, fuel pump, O2 sensors, even VSS (vehicle speed sensor). The code you mention states:

P1471 Land Rover Variable inlet manifold motor 1.Short circuit to V Batt. (vehicle battery?).

P1472 Land Rover Variable inlet manifold motor 2.Short circuit to V Batt.

I suspect it could be an electrical short with one of the sensors. Someone suggested you have your fuel pressure checked.

Spin half the speed


Hi.

Depending on the make and model, and type of washer, you may need to test and eventually replace the following parts:


On top loads:


Variable speed motor .
Motor coupler.
Transmission.
Control board.
Motor control unit (if present)


On front load :


Variable speed motor .
Motor coupler.
Control board.
Motor control unit.


On top load the problem is often transmission or variable speed motor. On front load MCU or motor.

The motor on my dremel 395 works but the bit doesn't turn


there is a coupling between the motor and the spindle that has probably cracked or stripped out. I suggest going to Dremel.com and getting an original replacement part for this. They are not hard to install.

1) No variable speed; 2) Grinding sound when using <high2speed>, although drill still works


starting with the variable speed the switch part # is 2607200457 and list for 47.58, the gearbox part # is 2606200930 and lists for 75.90 and lastly the motor part # is 2607022865 and lists for 75.90, the grinding could be the motor bearing going out or the magnets cracked, if you want to tackle this I suggest going to Boschtools.com and on the left side towards the bottom type in your model number so you can look at a breakdown of this tool. Before I started spending that kind of money I would think about possibly replacing it. If I have helped you would you please rate my response accordingly and Thank you.
