Possible shorting in the windings . you must not use the washer but must take the motor out and check for leaks in the windings.
if so the motor has to be replaced.

If the motor is sparking ( !!!!! ) -- unplug the unit and call a appliance repair man to repair the washer. or if it is new and under warranty, contact the seller for service. ( DO NOT use until it is fixed -- this is a very serious fire hazard !!! ).

Getting a rapid misfire in cylinder 5 changed spark plugs ,cleared the code came back on the day later ???


Hi Jason, Sounds like you have a coil pack and one of your coils is faulty. To check which coil is faulty just pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug and plug the spark plug lead onto a SPARE spark plug, Now earth it to the CLEAN motor or body (make sure the spark plug is touching metal) Start the motor, it's going to run ROUGHER than usual but you'll see if that spark plug is sparking... If it sparks then that coil is good. Turn the motor off and replace the spark plug lead back on to the original spark plug. Repeat with the next spark plug lead and so on until you start your car and the spark plug doesn't spark, THAT'S YOUR FAULTY COIL...

Like to locate fuel switch engine turns not getting gas


Oh, Hi David it's either fuel or spark... To check for spark just pull a spark plug lead off a spark plug and plug the spark plug lead onto a SPARE spark plug, Now earth it to the CLEAN motor or body (make sure the spark plug is touching metal) Turn the motor over using the ignition, If the spark plug doesn't spark then it could be coil... If it's sparking then you have a fuel problem, The fuel pump is usually in the fuel tank BUT I have no idea about the year, make or model number your car is....CHEERS..

Rival slicer model #65301, sparks when I slice meat, need a new motor ?


possibly not as sparks can be from low brush length or the armature needs a clean up
all brushed motors spark when they run and normally it is a small blue spark the full length of the brush and contained under the brush
If it is a harsh arc like spark then the motor should be looked at by an appliance repair shop

Spark plug gap settings chart


Hello,

The spark plug gap depends from the engine make/model, not from the spark plug type.
Usually all engines will run with a gap between 0.7 and 1.00mm

Dewalt DW718 Sparks When cutting . just bought it


The people from Lowes were right.
There are two types of motor designs: Induction motors and brush-type motors.
All electric motors that have brushes make sparks where the brushes contact the rotating commutator. They also run less efficiently but they are a bit smaller than induction motors for equal power output. Brushed motors can also deliver greater power at initial startup.
Because the sparks in brushed motors create heat, the housing around the motors typically have ventilation slots for air to go through to keep the commutator cool. This means you are likely to see the sparks if you look in the right place.
Since it's more difficult to get an induction motor turning, they typically have a "start capacitor" mounted on the side of the motor to give an extra kick to get the stator turning. While induction motors use less power when running, the amperage they use at start-up is typically double the running amperage.

WHY IS THE MOTOR PRODUCING SPARKS?


Sparks from where? Is it electrical like a loose wire or wire that has become bare? Is it fuel sparks? In any case sounds dangerous to people or electronics of the car at a min.

Stored over winter. New battery fresh fuel wont start. Doesnt seem 2 be a spark peugeot speedfight 2 03. Any advice thanks clive


When gas sits it will, turn to a gel to make it simple. this can block the very small holes in the carb. There is a very simple way to check if the motor will run without taken everything apart. remove the air filter, get yourself a can of carb spray, brake cleaner, or wd-40. Open the throttle the whole way and spary which ever one you choose to use into the air intake let the throttle go and try to start the motor. if it starts then you know you have a fuel problem. If not then the next thing to check is the spark plug, remove the spark plug from the motor, place the spark plug cap back on the spark plug put the spark plug on the motor and spin the motor with the starter and see if you get spark. If you go you know that you have a fuel issue. check this out and lme know what you find if you need help with cleaning the carb let me know.

DW705 Miter saw Spark in motor Compartment


Yes spark in motor compartment is normal. You only need to worry if you see a lot of sparks flying out of the motor compartment! Most power tools will spark inside the motor compartment (particularly if carbon brushes are used).

Bevel and miter could be off... Consult your manual for how to adjust these correctly, but usually the bevel has a 0-degree setting screw or adjustment, and the miter adjustment on the saw is usually done by altering the fence position... Again check your manual for specifics on your saw.
