The windings on the motor rotor or stator have melted to the point where excessive current is entering the motor and causing it to overheat and melt further - results in smoke, possible fire, blown fuses.

Ba 203 won't start imobilelizer has come on can't get it off how had ute 1week ford say have to to tow to them and $140.0 to go on computer is there cheaper easy way please. tony f# fords


Hi Anthony......,It's either electrical OR fuel so If you're a hands on guy then do this.... Pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug OR if it's a "COIL ON A SPARK PLUG" pull that off and put a spare spark plug into that spark plug lead OR coil, Then earth that spark plug to a clean part of the motor(make sure the spark plug is touching steel)Turn motor with the key and see if the spark plug sparks.... If it sparks then you have a fuel problem....... But if no spark then you have an electrical problem.... The links below are YouTube videos showing how to fix a car that doesn't start/cranks but doesn't start, Also there's videos down the right side of the links that may help as well...................

Hi there, i have placed new coils and spark plugs also got new air-flow meter sensor new battery and car does not crank over please help


Hi does the motor turn with key but doesn't start?, If so take a spark plug out and replace it back into the spark plug lead and earth it onto a steel part of the body(make sure it's touching something steel). Have somebody turn the key to see if your getting spark. If you have spark then you have a fuel blockage but if you don't have spark but have new coils and battery then it could be a loose wire in the coil harness meaning electrical......
You say car does not crank over, If you mean you turn the key and motor doesn't turn then it's electrical, so no spark OR motor doesn't turn you're better off getting an auto electrician but if you have spark it's fuel problem and you need a mechanic... Sorry and good luck......

Why wont my mower start


You need to pull the plug wire off the spark plug put another spark plug and put it in and hold it to the motor and crank it to see if you are getting spark. Some models you have to have the spark plug in the motor cause some have sensor that will not make spark because it doesn't sense compression. If you are getting spark then you are having a fuel issue.

Dewalt DW718 Sparks When cutting . just bought it


The people from Lowes were right.
There are two types of motor designs: Induction motors and brush-type motors.
All electric motors that have brushes make sparks where the brushes contact the rotating commutator. They also run less efficiently but they are a bit smaller than induction motors for equal power output. Brushed motors can also deliver greater power at initial startup.
Because the sparks in brushed motors create heat, the housing around the motors typically have ventilation slots for air to go through to keep the commutator cool. This means you are likely to see the sparks if you look in the right place.
Since it's more difficult to get an induction motor turning, they typically have a "start capacitor" mounted on the side of the motor to give an extra kick to get the stator turning. While induction motors use less power when running, the amperage they use at start-up is typically double the running amperage.

WHY IS THE MOTOR PRODUCING SPARKS?


Sparks from where? Is it electrical like a loose wire or wire that has become bare? Is it fuel sparks? In any case sounds dangerous to people or electronics of the car at a min.

Motor brushes spark like crazy!


If you already replaced the brushes you could have a couple problems, the least is the armature commutator needs cleaned and the more expensive is that it needs replaced. This is a problem unless you want to tackle taking the motor partially apart. Let me know what route you want to take either a repair center or looking at the commutator.
