We have an Emerson 1201 fan with a Emerson K55TT-691 Motor that has failed (burnt out winding). Where can we find a replacement motor?

    Yes, there is a burnt spot on winding and winding is "open" when checked with an ohm meter.

Are you sure its a winding and not a burnt out thermal fuse

    it is good that you have a meter and checked the continuity

    dont know where you can find a replacement motor

    Good Luck

    Hope you find one

Fan just stop spining

Check for power getting to the affected motor. If power is reaching motor but it does not spin you might also want to check it for excessive friction in bearings caused by dirt/wear . Motor might have also burnt out its windings if it was spinning too slow and excessive current heated and melted the windings.

Exhaust Fan does not work

Motors are divided into many categories. Most bathroom fans use a shaded pole motor (having a transformer on one side, a laminated yoke and 2 circles of copper shorting around the laminations to create a north and south pole) Another type is a compound wound motor (having brushes) A third type is an induction motor. the rotor of the motor is a series of laminations where a magnetic frequency in the stator windings induce magnetism in the rotor and they repel each other. A squirrel cage capacitor start induction run has a large capacitor on the side.
You can not mix and match what you want from one motor style to another motor style. If you have a brush type motor, perhaps the commutator needs cleaning and the commutator could be shorted with metal filings. The brushes may have failed and needs replacing. The bearings may have seized and the windings heated up blowing the thermal cutoff just under the tape of the windings. The windings may have burned through the varnish that coats the wires on the start winding (on motors with a centrifugal switch only) Centrifugal switches can fail to open or close. Only someone knowledgeable with motors can tell you what you have and what the problem is. It is far cheaper to replace a motor with a similar one on inexpensive devices such as a bathroom fan. A new fan may be cheaper than getting a new motor.

Hello, If the motor is getting power and the capacitor is good most likely the motor is shot either due to an open winding or failed bearing

Hello, I replaced a light fixture on my existing Emerson ceiling fan. The light worked right away but the blades didn't turn. I could hear power going to the motor so I went back into the switch cup and...

Signs of a bad capacitor in a ceiling fan include:

  • Fan runs slowly or not at all on all speeds
  • Fan will not start but will spin if started by hand
  • Certain speeds are slow or do not work
  • The motor hums and turns freely by hand but will not spin

    The capacitor is usually a black box inside the switch housing of the fan. If this box appears burnt or melted in any way, that is also the sign of a bad capacitor and it should be replaced.

    have a good day !!

    I have emerson quiet kool but the fan with not turn it keep on making a miiiiiiiiii sound

    Hi, what has happened here is you have lost the blower motor to the unit. Anytime a motor will not turn and makes noise as it is trying to start, the windings are about gone, and /or the bearings are froze up. I know this is a Emerson, but I don't know the model of this unit, or if it is a window/wall unit or larger. If it is a wall type unit, it will have a dual shaft motor in it for the blower and condenser fan. It would not be worth the cost to have this motor replaced unless it is a Emerson central heating and air system. It is possible that this unit has a run capacitor on it that may have failed, but when this happens the motor will just stop and not make any noise at all. The motor needs to be changed out if its a central unit, and if you want to get an estimate to change it out if its a window or wall unit you can, but it may cost you more then the unit is worth, just to be honest from my years in this business. Please keep me posted on this and what you decide to do. Please don't forget to rate this post as I know you will be kind. I wish I had better news for you, but this happens and there is not much you can do your self. I wish you the best.

    AMCOR SD10 Dehumidifier, Need to replace the electric fan motor.

    Take it out, and search the part number on line, they are bout $40 with s/h. however my current discovery:
    It made no sense to me that despite no visual issues, the fan motor is bad. So, with further research it turns out that the true culprit is the small thermistor/thermal fuse between the orange wire (ground) and motor winding wire. The thermistor is taped underneath the silver aluminium and yellow tape on the fan motor. I heard about this bad (open/no continuity) thermistor makes almost >99% of the fan motor problem regardless of any brand name because this cheap c-fram fan motor is NOT made in USA. I opened the motor, there is a silver (aluminum wrap) around the windings for the motor that needs to be cut. Careful not to cut the motor windings. Inside there is a thermistor or type of temperature sensor connected between the orange wire and a motor winding wire. On my motor this was no longer working.
    The part marked "JET 123 NM1 2A 130C" is a thermal fuse. The 130C is the temperature rating. When the motor get hot (130C / 265F) the fuse opens. The circuit is broken and the motor stops.

    The motor is still good. The fuse is blown. It must be replaced to get the motor running again. You could bypass the fuse but then you invite a fire hazard.

    A replacement fuse is available from Digi-Key. It is a Cantherm SDJ1 DF128S (128C):

    Part cost 98 cents

    You might want to go with the next higher temp (141C):

    Will not trun on . its plug in , on switch is on. i toke the motorhosing apart and notice that some of the housing was cracked. i turn the on swith on nothing, the motor will trun by hand

    There are two possibilities: One is that the switch has failed, The other is that the motor windings are burnt and failed. The check for the switch would be to unplug the vacuum and remove the on of switch. With a contnuity tester, place the tester leads to each side of the switch.In the on position the switch should show a dead short ( closed circuit ). If it doesn't replace switch. If it is the motor windings that have burnt you would be able to smell an acrid burnt smell, if you do replace the motor.

    Motor shuts off after 30 seconds looks like it is overheating

    More than likely the motor is overheating or at least the thermal overload thinks it is. The thermal overload could be bad but if the motor has burnt windings then it probably is pulling too many amps which will cause the overload. Sounds like you need a service call or take the motor to a motor shop.

    Looking to replace Patton fan motor, model 1010mp, style TJ74SP

    If you are up to disassembling your motor, you will find a thermal cutout near the windings which frequently fails open. Replacements are readily available, or just jumper it out. If the bearings are shot or the windings burned you're out of luck. Trust me, a new motor will cost more than a whole new fan.

    Overheating? burnt oil smell

    There is a seal between the compressor and the motor that in failed condition will leak oil into motor windings causing burnt oil smell. Some hitachi compressors suffered from failed valves or head gasket causing extra heat but not oil smell. These compressors also have a thermobreaker built into the windings that when failed will prevent motor from starting or would start and run for only a few moments then open. This part is not replaceable. enjoy
