More than likely you have a worn brush. If the breaker was running good and then just stopped this is the case. These brushes have a pop-off feature that will stop the motor when it is time to replace the brushes. If you replace the brushes and are getting a lot of sparking, the armature or field more than likely may have a short. Sometimes its the armature, sometimes it's the field, and sometimes its both (running short). You have to have a short tester and a growler in order to test for the shorts. One thing to look for is any burn marks on the windings of the armature, and look for scarring on the inside of the field which may have gotten damage due to rubbing from the armature. An imbalance in the electrical field can push the armature into the side of the field while it spins.

Three things get your cycle to start and run: gas, electricity from battery to spark plug and air! Do one at a time...Are you getting gasoline to the carburator and eventually to the cylinder? Are you getting power from the battery? Is the spark plug getting power? Is the starter motor getting power? Trial and error!

Has fuel won't start

Older Vehicle i am Not sure but if its carbureted then check ur floats. If its getting fuel to the Injectors/Carburetor then its electric! Check For Spark or Mani fold air Leak by spraying starting fluid on the manifold & Carb. if it kicks then u no the problem lies around there. if no luck then its either bad compression or Spark issue.. New Plugs ? Coils ? Check for spark if its getting Fuel.

Hope This Helps :)

Cant get my 125cc motor bike going for the first time

hummm check your electrical connections make sure you have the stop run switch is in run position,you have fuel flow to the carb, make sure you are getting spark to the spark plug by using a extra spark plug remove the plug cap and ground it to the head and kick start the engine and see if you are getting spark to the plug.
hope this helps

If the motor turns by hand, but the breaker is tripping does not preclude a bad motor. Could be nothing more than a capacitor on the motor itself. If the breaker you speak of is on the unit itself, could be bad. If it is in the electric panel, motor capacitor is the first place to look.

Stoped working

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever.
