Drive Motor Tachometer Error

The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.

Potential Causes:

* Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
* Check the Drive Motor
* Check the MCU
* Check the Wire Harness
begin troubleshooting right at the motor. Why start there? Because the motor is one of the prime suspects and it's easy to check. Remove the back panel and unwind the belt from the drum pulley. Now turn the motor pulley (sans belt) by hand. If it doesn't turn smoothly and easily, you have a bad motor.

If the motor pulley turns smoothly and easily by hand, next step is to run the motor with the belt still removed from the motor pulley. If the motor seems to run fine that way, put the belt back on and run it again. If the motor won't run under load (with the belt on), then that's another sign that the motor is bad.

Suppose the motor turns easily and freely by hand but won't run either with or without the belt. This is a more subtle condition because we're probably dealing with a bad MCU or flakey wire harness somewhere between the motor and MCU, or between the MCU and the CCU.

One trick that often works at this point is to remove and reinsert all wire connections at the board and motor. This tends to clean the small amount of corrosion that will build up on the connections. After you do this put the machine into a service cycle (see the instructions in the tech sheet found inside the unit or you can ). Part of the service cycle is running the motor at certain set speeds which checks the tach.


If you've removed/reinserted the wire harnesses and still no joy, then usually the problem is the MCU.

Amana front loading washer won't run after power outage. Panle does light up.


Possible that the program controller unit has failed if there is no display or power in the indication. You will need to remove panel to check on the fuse and if the new fuse fails it is possible there are error or hardware failure within the board.
Please remove and check the power panel for shorted drive, rectifier or capacitor, if not the panel must be replaced.

I need to take off the drivers inside door panle?


I think....
the crank handle is held in with a U shaped clip. Take a flat head screw driver and pry open the gap between the crank handle and the door panel. look in this gap and you will see the clip. Take another screw driver and from the end of the clip pop it off the crank handle. (you may have to rotate the crank handle to find the end of the clip). Another way is to put panty hose or a thin rang into the gap and rotate the crank handle, it will pick up the end of the clip and pop it off. (note: photo is from a different vehicle, but application is the same.) HTH

My wheelchair dose not move


The chair has two levers, one for each motor, that disengage it for freewheeling, or pushing the chair without power. These take it out of gear. Place the levers in the locked, gear-engaged position and it should go for you. Here's a link for the manual for your chair, and it will show you where the location is to place it in gear.http://www.invacare.com/doc_files/1125085J.pdf

Lincoln impinger 2


this is caused probably by a faulty power board or a switch. In the front all three switches share a common power source. I would start there to see if voltage is present on all three switches. These are also tied into a 24 volt control transformer it would be the next thing I check I believe it is xfrmr 3 on the print.

Hope this helps Ya
