The easiest way to tell is to ohm it out with a ohmmeter. By disconnecting all power to the unit and motor and letting it set for about an hour or so to make sure the motor is cool, disconnect the motor wires and touch the meter leads to each wire, if you don't get any reading, the motor windings are open and the motor needs to be replaced.
Another way is to check the voltage to the motor, at the motor terminals. If you have the rated voltage for the motor and the motor doesn't do anything and the motor is not hot, then the windings are open and needs replaced, or if you smell the motor getting hot, smoking or tripping breaker or blowing the fuse then the motor is shorted and needs replaced.

Can you usen the sam air vent for heating and swamp cooler


Yes you can. I have that set-up in my house. The only problem is when moisture laden swamp cooled air goes past the heat exchanger. This could cause the exchanger to rust out, allowing carbon monoxide to come into the house when the heater is used. This can be avoidid by having a one way damper made by an HVAC shop, and installing it at the heater.

Need parts, pump for a ED630J adobe swamp cooler in las vegas, nevada


A swamp cooler PUMP is not really model specific. They are basically small submersible pumps. Contact ANY swamp cooler dealer in LV, tell them you have a 4500 CFM unit and need a pump.
The pump part number for this size cooler is: PN 110436 (there are several alternates)

Contact these folks and tell them what you need:
National Cooler ' Swamp Cooler
3046 Vegas Dr.Suite 1
Las Vegas, NV 89106
(702) 638-8800

If they can not help you... just look under cooling and air-conditioning in the yellow pages and find a dealer near you. This pump is common to nearly every brand in LV. You can most likely buy one at the local home depot, menards, or lowes.
There is also a Little Giant CK-5 "UTILITY"pump that is used for swamp coolers.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

No low speed on my mobile master cooler module no mmb12c


Could be as simple as the switch, could be as complex as a pole burned out on the motor. If you reverse the connections on the speed selector switch and you end up with low speed and no high speed then you know it's just an inexpensive switch.

Frequent short cycles of the Mastercool swamp cooler


Short cycling can also occur in a thermally protected motor if it is overheating. If the other solution did not work, make sure the belt on the motor is not too tight or too loose. A handy person can check the amperage with an amp probe to make sure it is in limits. The adjust the pulley to put it into specs.
