Thermostate kicks pump motor on ok. but when its time for the fan motor, all you here is a loud humming then the breaker blows


check for a failed start/run capacitor for the motor
if the motor spins freely then the humming will be a frequency hum because there is not enough power to start the fan running
the extra current will blow a cb

My Frigidaire fex831fs4 washer motor hums but wont start.i took belt off.still hums no start even when timer is not set to run.if I close lid motor hums then kicks out then it trys again.thanks 4 help


I appreciate your post, Mike!

Based off what you have described your Frigidaire washer motor will hum and not start. In order to test each component you would need to have the proper electrical equipment. I would recommend contacting a professional technician for proper repairs. They will have the necessary equipment needed to complete your repair. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Husky air compressor motor hums won't start


In a safe manor, when the motor is humming, give one of the pulleys a push to help get the motor started. If the motor runs OK with the help push, the start capacitor is bad. If not the next thing to check is the tank check valve.

Amana front load washer hums only


A centrifugal switch to allow the motor to start up on the start winding and once started it opens to take it out of the start winding. The motor has to have voltage applied to the start winding and the run winding at the same time in order for the motor to start. The capacitor is part of the start circuit. When the motor goes to start, the voltage must be applied to the start winding in order for the motor to start or it will just hum. The moment the motor reaches a certain RPM the centrifugal switch opens up to remove the start voltage to the motor and it will remain running on the run winding. The motor will not start up on run voltage alone. It needs both, the start voltage and run voltage.

I think the problem is that the motor is not getting the start voltage supplied to the motor or the start winding has opened up in the motor.

I have a washer LSQ8543JQ1. When I try to run it it makes a humming noise. I thinh it is the timer, motor or the gear. Is there any way of pinpointing the bad part?


Hello
Sounds like the coupling is broken .The humming you hear is the motor running nicely with no load.
$20 part and easy to install.Part# 3364003 Sears.Have to take front of cabinet off.
If the hum is really loud the motor is probably shot. To confirm Let it hum for a minute.If motor is bad it will cut out on overload or might blow fuse..
Good Luck

38CKC036 Air Conditioner: outside fan will not come on makes a humming noise...


If the humming is your compressor running (feel the large copper line going into the unit, it should feel cold aftter a few minutes of run time) then the fan motor or the capacitor or both need to be replaced, check for voltage to the fan motor when the unit is "humming" if it has voltage and will not start replace the fan motor and the capacitor. hope this helps.

My blower motor will not start. it hums and gets very hot. i can spin the wheel with no resistance gmp075-4


Assuming you are spinning it when the motor is humming, if the motor runs after spinning it it could be the run capacitor (replace) or open/broken start winding in motor(need new motor). Humming should indicate the motor is getting proper voltage. If motor does not try to run by spinning then open run winding in motor (replace motor).

Dryer hums and won't work


can you remove the belt and run it/..look at the motor if it is spinning. let me know. normally, if it hums, its the motor which is not starting, when you replaced the motor, im sure it has its own centrifugal switch and starting capacitor. did you replaced the starting capacitor?..it could be open.
