The shaft is frozen; you've got damaged goods. Your only option is to replace the motor.

I have a QEP 7" tile saw. When I plug it in and press the switch, it hums-blade does not spin. (Note: not ready to cut tile yet, so no water in the bottom) Does anyone have any ideas on what's wrong?

Sounds like a shorted motor,or a dead spot on the armature. Try rotating the blade manually with no power first, then plug it in to see if it starts up. Don't let it hum for more than a second at a time, or it's sure to burn up the motor our trip the breaker.

Why does my hydromate motor trip the breaker?

Drag on the Motor is increasing the HEAT, the HEAT is what is causing the trip. Your motor sounds like it is getting weak.

Model 8003- x - 400 when plugged in motor hums for about 10 seconds then breaker trips(no pump but display lights up

Sounds like the motor is seized. Of it cant turn over it will trip the breaker. Sometimes you can get to the shaft of the motor on the back end by removing a cover or cap. With a large flat screw driver or open end wrench you can sometimes spin it manually to break it free. If it is really stuck the pump may have to be dis-assembled or replaced.

I plug my shredder in and turn it on, it makes a short hum noise and then breaker trips and I cannot reset it.When it does reset it trips again Never used it

The breaker is tripping on an over current condition. This could be caused by the motor being stuck and not moving or some sort of short circuit. I suggest, with it unplugged, that you find a way to rotate the chipper head or the motor. May have to disassemble to accomplish this. If it will not turn it may be bound up and you are going to have to take apart anyway to remove the item.

Good luck, hope this helps.

The disposal only hums. I can turn the blades inside so there is no food stuck. I know there is a reset button but cant locate it.

I had the same problem, it was just humming, then after a few second the on board circuit breaker would cut out. After a little while I could hit the reset button and it would just hum again.

It turns out that the base of the disposal was jammed. There are 2 blades on the top that should spin freely, but the base plate that the blades are attached to also spins. In fact, that's what the motor drives. The two blades on top are not powered, they just flip back and forth as the base spins. So get a broom handle or a strong wooden spoon, stick it down in there, and try to pry the base plate free so it spins. That should do it.

Hayward flo pump motor repair

What exactly is wrong with your pool pump? If it won't start at all, check for improper or loose connections, blown fuses or tripped breakers, and open your switches and replays. Manually check the rotation of your motor shaft. Make sure that there is free movement and no obstructions. If the motor hums, but won't start, check for obstructions and check the Centrifugal switch to see if it is stuck in the open position. If you have low flow, check pool pumps for clogged or restricted strainer/suction line and discharge line of filter. You could also have an air leak in suction (bubbles issuing from return fittings). Low voltage could cause loss of suction. Check for plugged or restricted impeller.

KA KAdette 250 - I hit the switch the other day and nothing happened. I checked the circuit breaker - ok. I also checked the small breaker button on the bottom of the disposal. It is at least 12-years old....

12 years is middle aged for an appliance, but the problem is probably one of the garbage disposal big three: a tripped circuit breaker, a tripped reset button, or a jammed disposer. With the breaker turned off, make sure the disposer's shaft rotates freely. On most disposers there's a hole in the bottom middle where you can insert an allen wrench that you're probably find under the sink and rotate the shaft manually to free jams. But, for the love of God, only do this with the breaker turned off and make sure you remove the wrench (or broom handle if you have to go from the top) from the disposer before turning it on. Make sure the reset is pushed down until it clicks if it's tripped, and, since circuit breakers get old and stick, you'll have to turn the breaker all the way off and back on to make sure it's not tripped. If the disposer hums but doesn't turn when you turn it on, check to see if it's jammed. If it turns freely but hums and doesn't start then the starter circuit on the motor is bad. If the breaker and reset button are ok and it doesn't even hum when you turn it on, you'd want to check the disposer to make sure it's getting power. You can find a little electrical reader at walmart for $5 that works like a geiger counter and will beep when it gets close to something that's receiving power. The switch may be worn out, but really the disposer's motor failing is probably the least likely thing. But please get a qualified electrician out there if you don't know what you're doing. There's a reason that it requires a license.
