SOURCE: need replacement motor

Before trying top replace anything, make sure you have power at the motor from the cord.
If you have no way to check for power, unplug and change the cord to any other you have around.
That will assure that the cord is good or bad.

SOURCE: 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.

Yes you should try replacing the run capacitor.

SOURCE: Fuse blowing on start up on Behringer PMH 518M

Try running the amp with no speaker cables connected. If it doesn't blow the fuse you know it's either your Speakon cables or the speakers themselves that are to blame (it's usually the cables)

If it still blows then there is a more serious problem with the power section.

2006 Amanti blower will not run and keeps blowing fuse. The blower motor turns freely by hand.


There is a short circuit on the B+ power circuit for the blower motor ! Your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop ! Finding electrical shorts can be tough ,even for seasoned tech > There are videos on youtube on finding short circuits an basic electrical trouble shooting , how to read a wiring diagram ! You can find a wiring diagram at http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html . Troubleshoot Car Electrical Problem .

Why does 15 amp 250 volt fuse in my lg refridgerator keep blowing


the 15 amp fuse is blowing because the current draw to run the compressor exceeds 15 amps
that problem could be from a failed start/ run capacitor or a failed compressor motor (I am betting on the capacitor)
the best answer is to get a fridge technician to check it out as the capacitor is a cheap fix while the compressor unit is as costly as a new fridge

My haier AC doesn't blow air. The green light does


Try to turn blower fan by hand to see if it turns freely, Place fan on highest speed try to spin by hand on highest speed , if it works you may need a new capacitor for fan motor if not try and jumper fan switch to see if it runs .

I replacsed th wiper transmission and now the wiper fuse keeps blowing I did not work on any thing but that


Does the fuse blow when the wipers are off or when you turn the wipers on? A fuse blowing means either a short circuit or an overload. Lets say that your wiper transmission is new and working properly, then an overload is probably blowing the fuse which is caused by the circuit pulling to much current because something is not aligned correctly and moving freely when the wiper motor is turned on. Before you connect the arms to the transmission, move the arm assembly manually with your hand to make sure the wipers go across and back on the windshield. This will verify that the arm assembly is moving freely and not jamming. Then turn the wiper transmission without connecting the wiper arms and see if the transmission is working properly and not blowing the fuse. This will verify that your wiper transmission is not defective. Check the wiring going to the wiper transmission for any bare spots or nicks on the wire insulation. If you have a bare spot or nick that is touching metal, the fuse will blow (this is called a short circuit). If you find a bare spot or nick on the wire use electrician tape to insulate the bare spot or nick. Usually three wraps of electrician tape around the bare spotor nick will do the job. Oh, make sure to replace the fuse with the correct amp fuse. Your car dealer auto parts can provide the information (over the phone) on the correct amp size. You can purchase the fuse at any auto parts. FYI: Too small an amp on the fuse will blow when the wiper is turned on. Too large of a fuse will cause the wiring to burn if your wipers should stop shifting and jam. Good Luck. Hope this helps.

Jandy pool pump not working, sounds like it trying to turn, acts frozen, shaft spins freely by hand, pump hot to the touch.


Check the start switch inside the motor. I.e the spring and fly-weights to make sure they slide on the armature shaft. If this is stuck in the run position (away from the start switch) it will not allow the capacitor to start the pump. If it does move freely the most probable suspect is the start capacitor. Since I am responding in generic form without a model number this imfromation is fitting to the majority of pump motors.

10inch delta table saw....motor starts slow then kicks off


Assuming that this model has a belt drive from the motor to the saw arbor. Remove the belt and turn the motor on--same problem? If motor is a capacitor start unit, the capacitor may have failed. Be sure to check motor rotation by hand--it should spin freely. If ok, check the turning action of the blade itself--it should spin freely and coast for a little while. If not, check the arbor bearings for failure. Hope this helps!

The ac is not fully turning on. It sounds like the compressor starts to run, but the fan does not and eventually turn off. With the unit off, i turn the fan on and it sounds like its trying to run but its...


The first thing you should do is make sure the fan turns freely by hand. If it does then check the capacitor and replace it if it's bad. If the fan doesn't turn freely then you may need a new fan.

Air is not blowing out with any force


if "not blowing out with any force" is refering to the outside unit .. then make sure the fan is turning and up to speed .. if not then make sure it turns freely without power .. if not then lube the bearings or replace the fan motor ... if it doesnt start at all but turns freely by hand then replace the starrting capacitor (about 3 inch metalic rounded rectangle with wires going into the compressor and fan) .. make sure the condenser coil is not clogged with leaves (wash out) ... if you are refering to the inside unit not havinng much force .. then replace the furnace air filter .. check to make sure the blower turns freely ... check the evaporator coil for blockage with dust ..

1/3 hp drill press motor runs hot and very slow.


Look instead at the motor and drill post bearings. Remove the belt to see if the motor runs correctly with no load. If it still hums and gets hot, check that the motor itself turns freely (when off). If the motor seems to be ok, turn the driven pulley by hand--it should also turn freely. The capacitor is usually a starting assist, not running. To test, wrap a small rope several turns (when pulled must turn in the normal direction) around the small motor pulley and pull smartly while turning the motor on. If it now comes up to speed, the capacitor has lost capacitance. Electronic parts suppliers like Jameco or Mouser have such items.
