I'm assuming that you're pushing in the red button to reset it to restart the motor? Check to see what the air pressure is when the compressor shuts off. If it's higher that rated, then perhaps lowering the pressure will prevent the motor overload. If you have an amp meter, check the amp reading and compare it to the amp rating on the motor nameplate.

Have a carrier 92 furnace. electric motor will not kick on...just hums. red light on circuit board flashes...help?


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the furnace won't run, check the electrical service panel for a blown fuse or tripped breaker. Also make sure the power switch on or near the furnace is turned on. Check the unit for a reset button and try it. Some units have a built-in breaker or fuse panel.
However you can have a missing 1 phase , test with the VOM, for to measure voltage. Or motor need repair for winding trouble,bearing.If you do not have enough experience call some electrician.
God bless you

Hi,I have a travel trailer 37ft. Problem with my ac, the fan starts good but my compressor does not kick on. My next door neighbour says it's the compressor that is done. Could you help me?

Motor Trouble Cause Diagnostic Procedure Repair Procedure Electrical Power is Off Check that all service switches for the equipment are in the "on" position.
Check for voltage at the pump motor or pump controls. If no voltage is found, check for voltage at the electric panel.
If power is on to the building, check fuse or circuit breaker serving the electric motor that won't run.
Check for local reset button on the motor (popped out = off )
Check for other power reset or power off buttons such as an access door compartment safety switch that turns off power to the equipment (found on A/C blower compartment doors)
Turn on "off" switches.
Replace bad fuse. Reset circuit breaker; if necessary replace bad circuit breaker.
Let hot electric motor cool down, then push in its reset button.
Be sure all safety interlock switches such as on compartment doors are depressed and that the doors are securely shut. Replace a bad safety switch.

Loose, improper, or broken motor wire Check wiring against the motor installation manual diagram, check all connections for tightness, shorts, burns, damage Rewire or repair or replace wWhen a sealed compressor motor has "burned out" this means that the internal wiring of the motor has become irreparably damaged: the compressor motor windings may be burned and shorted together or shorted to the steel shell of the motor, or the windings may have burned and simply become "open" or disconnected. If the motor has burned out in either of these ways it needs to be replaced.

I guess it overheated and it stopped working. I cannot find manual to know how to reset and test it to work. Can you tell me how to do this? My e-mail is: krort1@optonline.net Thank you


First, check the breaker box to see if the breaker for the whirlpool has kicked out. It may be a ground fault breaker with a small reyd button to reset it. If you know that the circuit is getting power, then you need to find the motor which runs the pump. Sometimes these are built into the wall and can only be accessed by tearing out sheetrock walls. Once you get to the motor, look for the wire that is running into the motor. There will be a small red button sticking out near the point where the wire enters the motor. Push this button in. If you have power and it has tripped out, this will restart the motor. If you have let this run without water in the tub, it may be all over for this motor. If the pump itself overheated from lack of water, it may have seized up thus burning the motor out as well.

How to manually reset an AO Smith 2 hp motor?


If you did not press a reset ( and even if you did) the motor is damaged and that is causing the circuit breaker to trip. You need to have the motor inspected to see if the damage is repairable or if you need a new motor. A local electric motor repair shop should be able to take care of that for you. The thermal overload has reset itself if after cooling down the motor is trying to start but trips the breaker.

To be certain it is the motor, disconnect the line leads and be sure they are insulated from ground and one another. Turn the breaker back on. It should stay closed which confirms it is the motor tripping it when connected.

If for some reason the breaker still trips, there is a problem with the electrical circuit feeding the pump.

IR T 20 air compressor will not kick on


IS IT THREE PHASE OR SINGLE PHASE? MOTOR TAG WILL SAY PH 1 OR PH 3.DOUBLE BREAKER OR TRIPLE BREAKER WILL ALSO TELL. IS THIS A BRAND NEW INSTALL OR AN EXISTING COMPRESSOR THAT JUST NOW STARTED DOING THIS. SOUNDS LIKE A POWER PROBLEM LIKE A MISSING PHASE OR BLOWN FUSE. REMOVE FUSES WHEN OHM CHECKING - DONT TEST THEM WHILE STILL INSTALLED.

Dryer won't run right


The motor in your unit has to be replaced. The centrifical sw can't seem to keep the motor going. The shaft may spin freely, but once power is present the shaft locks up therefore your over amping the motor and it then trips the breaker. Since you already had the unit apart you will do fine replacing the motor. Good luck
