Blade hit something and now the motor will not

Blade hit a piece of rubber and stalled. Now it will not start. Is there a reset button or switch? Could the timing have been knocked out of wack and if so how do I reset it?

I can manually turn the blades inside the glass pitcher and I can turn the piece on the top of the motor base into which the pitcher blade attachment fits.

One of the parts is not being driven properly. Either the clutch on the top of the motor is not really attached to the motor shaft OR the clutch on the bottom of the blade is not engaging with the motor clutch OR the blade clutch is not properly attached to the blade shaft. On some models if you put the rubber sealing ring in the wrong place between the beaker and the blade housing it is enough to lift the clutches apart. The rubber wing goes between the beaker and the blade housing, not between the blade housing and the blade retaining ring.

My Kennmore side by side refrigerator stoped cooling after we noticed the fan underneath was not working! How can this be fixed!?

The fan motor will need to be replaced. First check to see if something is stalling the blade. A piece of paper or cheese wrapper could have been sucked in the blade. If the blade spins freely then the motor is probably bad they are usually not difficult to replace but the area will be hot so you will need to unplug the refrigerator for a while before attempting to replace the motor.

Try the blade first. It should be tight and have no real wobble to it. Although my first guess would be the brushes, These are generally accessible from the outside. There is often a number or something to identify the brush so that you can get a proper replacement pair. If the motor starts right away and the blade does not then the blade is loose. re- reading your post it could well be the blade. Often these are reverse threaded, so you tun them clockwise to get it off. You may well want a new blade anyway, and there are different types for different jobs. Watch your fingers and unplug the saw when messing with the blade- it is easy to hit the switch when undoing the blade.

Fan rattles when running. It appears that the fan blade hits the inner plastic piece behind the fan blade.

Open it up by removing screws and plastic backing. See this black round rubber fixture? Apply some WD-40 inside it and you'll be back to quiet fan operation.

Likelyhood of loose blade is very low, but not impossible.
Get a good light and a small mirror, something is jammed inside, I bet. Often a piece of somthing gets lodged in a dischaged port and the blade hits it evey rotation.

Motor noise from Bosch freezer 'noFrost' unit area sounds like a fan blade striking something on each rotation. Stops when door opened; starts and continues for several minutes when door closed.

Hi, If you say it stops when the door is opened and starts again when you close it, it is the evaporator motor in the freezer its self. The blade/prop is hitting maybe a chunk of ice or may be a part of the casing some where. This motor is 120 volts and the blade is either aluminum or plastic. You can fix this on your own if you are a handy guy, you just need to get back to where the motor is and plug it in to see what it is hitting.The bearings may be going out causing the motor shaft not to be true and hitting. You will be able to see the motor turn and know if it is straight. I don't believe that's the problem, something has moved slightly causing the blade to hit it on start up.I have seen this happen many times.Once you get the cover off, it should be a quick fix for you. Keep me posted. If it turns out to be the bearings as you will see the shaft wabbling, take it out, make sure you unplug it, an get the name Bosch, model, and serial numbers and get one at a appliance parts house. Like I said, I don't think its the bearings or it would stop working or be real noise all the time. The blade is just hitting something small. Keep me posted,

Engins starts and runs when mowing will backfire and stall.

I am not sure what time of lawn mower this is, but if the blade is directly tied to the motor, usually the belt will just slip if not, but if this is directly connected to motor, it might have jumped timing. If this is not the case, inspect under the mower deck, and determine if there is something jamming the blades against the deck or if their is something bound around the blade, this can cause more strain on the motor, which could result in the symptoms your experiencing.

The engine stalls

you may have trash in the gas tank. empty it nad wash it out real good make sure the gas you use is fresh the vibration could be the blade ; or it could be that when the rock was hit it bent the shaft and that would cause vibration also. remove the spark plug and rotate the blade with your hand, you should be able to tell ifi the shaft is bent or not if not try putting a new blade on

Blade does not turn

Disconnect the electric from the saw. Remove the throat blade cover. Bring the blade all the way up. Look for wood  caught between the blade and anything else. Finding none,remove blade. Try motor w/o blade. If it runs now,w/o the blade then the motor is likely ok . Reinstall blade. Now if it stil stalls, Replace motor.
