There is a short internally in the motor. IMO not worth repairing, new bench grinders are pretty inexpensive.

Whirlpool dryer makes a buzzing sound whey start button is pushed. sometimes it will turn on for a few seconds but most of the time it just buzzes.


The buzzing is probably the relay trying to start the motor. See if the motor has a capacitor, have it checked. If the motor is all clogged with lint, the start/run switch can get blocked. Clean out all that lint with a vacuum cleaner.
Check the tub bearing, and make sure the drum spins freely.

When start button is pushed the motor will buzz but yhe drum wont turn


Turn power off ,Will the bowl(drum) turn freely by hand.
If not turn by hand the bearings are seized,
It will need a seal & bearing kit & maybe a shaft as well.

Motor buzzes, fan does not move, blade does not move, blade is clear of obstruction


Removing blade will not do it - there has to be an obstruction in the drive mechanism that prevents it from turning. Leave off till fixed lest you risk burning out the motor completely. Turn on AFTER you can turn the blade freely.

Hi - the CD tray cannot open. It is empty - no CDs in there. I hear a buzz, but an "error" message comes on. I tried pushing on the tray while turning on; I unplgged the CD player, I put it on...


The loading tray belt has more than likely stretched or snapped.
The buzzing you hear will be the motor spinning freely.
The 'ERROR' message will show up because the tray isn't opening
and activating the 'tray open' switch, therefore the 'tray closed' switch
is permanently activated after the 'open/close button is pressed.

I have a Redello water pump 1HP, the shaft had seized as a result of a bearing seizure. I have replaced bearing and shaft in motor can now be turned manually quite freely. however the pump will not kick in...


It was used rapidly at the time of shaft struck. Before changing the bearing you must have checked the windings continuity. I think your windings short circuited or grounded.
Check with ohms meter one end with one winding end and another on body of the motor. If any reading, it's grounded. Rewind the motor/replace motor.

Compressor will not start


It is a good sign that the motor turns freely with and without air. That indicates that you have good bearings and that the intank check valve is in good condition. Next you should check the capacitors and the condition of the windings. Some motors have start and run capacitors and others only have run cap. Remove from the circuit and test with meter having cap. test setting. Most shops will test them for free. The cap should test within 95% of stated ( uf ) value. Replace as needed. Finally check that the flyball switch at rear inside of motor is functioning correctly. At rest, switch is at start winding, then a split second after start, it shifts to run winding. Check contacts are not stuck and that switch is working and lastly that the winding are the color of new penny. Good luck.

My tablesaw wont speed up and run. Bosch 4000 ten inch. It makes a klunk and starts to turn and slowly speeds up until its running, but still makes a knocking sound


Is it spinning the blade at all? If it is then it is unlikely to be an electrical fault. Have you considered a motor bearing fault? If the motor bearings are worn, it could turn freely by hand, but when powered up it would stutter and stall. The motor is basically a big electro-magnet so if the armature has enough lateral movement, when it is magnetized it could rub against the stator.
If the machine is buzzing, but not spinning the blade it is more than likely going to be caused by a faulty capacitor as this is the component that gives the motor the initial 'kick' in the right direction to get it spinning.

Dryer motor


if the motor buzzes when you push start then it is a bad motor.as long as the drum turns freely by hand.
