First I would recommend releasing the brake and make sure the transaxial is free to turn. If not it could be the brake unit is either faulty or there may be dust/dirt/grit in the brake.

Another place to look is behind the wheels where I have found in the past, string had got rapped around the axial and cause the drive to stiffen up.

If the motor is heating up more than usual, a couple of things
may be the source.
a) DC 24volt Motor itself has a shorted winding and using more current than normal. In that case the motor may need to be replaced. These DC motors have a commutated armature
that uses two carbon brushes. The carbon brushed do wear
down in time, so that could also be the source. The carbon
brushes are replaceable on pretty much all scooters and
can be obtained from MonsterScooter.
b) Controller issue where more current is being supplied to
the motor, but the motor itself determines how many amps
it draws from the batteries (ASSUMING FULL CHARGE HERE)
BASED ON THE BATTERY VOLTAGE, the lower the battery
voltage, the more current is required to move the transmission.

Electric motor heats up and stops after using for about 15 to 20 minutes, when it cools it runs for a short time


hi, now there is a real possibility the brake is not releasing fully , stressing the motor out ,,, have you removed a brush to inspect inside ? what about smell, ? smell burning ?

, Carefully remove the brake and test but keep it connected ?

The windings here could be the issue if the brake is not causing the problem

Areas to look at are :

Brake
Brushes
Motor Commutator
Motor winding , have one of the magnets within the motor come loose... noise would be a issue here..

Regards

I have a RUUD central air conditioning system, model NBHC-18J20SFA. The cooling function is not working. The fan on the outdoor unit is not working. When switching to COOL, the compressor works for a few...


sounds like the outdoor fan motor and/or capacitor needs replaced. The compressor will run for a short time because the fan is not pulling the heat out of the system, it can cause damage to the compressor if the fan is not repaired, Ruud used a 3uf capacitor rating for the outdoor fan motor, if the motor has been changed make sure the proper capacitor is also changed for the new motor rating.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. If your dryer isn't working or isn't getting heated up, you'll need to check the following to be sure what exactly the issue is--
Blows fuses or trips circuit breaker —ELECTRIC Models:
• The amperage readings are at 240 volts. One line will be 24 amps and the other line will be 21 amps. The neutral line will be at 3 amps. If the above amperages are not present, then the house wiring, fuse box or circuit breaker should be suspect.
• Shorted heating element to housing.
• Incorrect wiring or a wire shorting to ground.
• Drive motor winding shorting to ground.

Blows fuses or trips circuit breaker —GAS Models:
• If igniter is not glowing, check for 120 V at igniter.
• Igniter harness may be loose and shorted to base.
• Incorrect wiring or a wire shorted to ground.
• Drive motor winding shorting to ground.


If it runs for a few minutes and then stops, then check for the following:--
• Empty dryer.
• Check motor spins freely.
• Lint buildup around drive motor.
• Low voltage present.
• Blower impeller blocked in blower housing.
• Drive motor - start switch contacts stuck closed.



Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Motor smokes


If an electric motor is smoking, most likely it is in the process of burning out the windings in the motor. This usually starts from using an extension cord that has too small a wire or a cord that is too long. when you do thid you are forcing the motor to pull more amps than it should to make up for the voltage loss in the cord.
The fuel for the electric motor is a term called watts. Watts equals volts times amps. If the voltage drops then more amps are needed to feed the motor enough watts. This caused the motor to over heat and this melts or breaks down the insulation on the windings. When this happens the motor starts to short out and once this happens then you can not save the motor.

Electric lawn equipment should be used with #14 or #12 (never use #16 or #18 gauge ) guage extension cords and should not be used with cords longer than 50 feet. Also you should not run the equipment more than 10 minutes with out a 30 minute rest.

The a/c unit cooling fan shuts down shortly after unit kicks on.


If a fan motor quits working during a cycle it usually means that the thermal protector is turning it off. If you had an amp meter on it, you would notice that it is exceeding the listing on the nameplate, Nine times out of ten this is irreversable, the motor needs to be changed. Sometimes if there are oil ports on the motor, you can add a few drops of zoom spout oil and that does the trick. But usually the motor is already damaged. Good luck.

AC breaker trips after 10 minutes


Whats the amp breaker? Is this for the inside unit or the outside condenser? If the inside and gas heat you have a bad fan motor, If its an electric furnace , the same, but if its the outside unit, the fan could be going bad, locking up and the compressor still runs and pulls high ampsand tripps breaker or the compressor is just pulling too many amps due to plugged coils with dirt , grass or weeds blocking airflow.(koolbreezes74401@yahoo.com)
