GE Adora microwave worked 20 minutes ago. Now, totally dead. The lights, fans, turntable motor, microwave cooking elements, nothing.. works. AC power to the outlet is just fine.


Sometimes if a lot of steam has been produced while cooking, water may collect under the turntable plate and run down the spindle into the turntable motor. This can short circuit the motor and it will take the fuse out with it.
The fuse is usually housed in a plastic tubular case about 2inches long. Split the tube apart and replace the fuse if necessary (it's something silly like about 7000 volts). Switch on and check to see if anything else is not working like the turntable, lights, or fan etc and replace as necessary.

Fan wont turn


I have taken one apart. reassembled and the fan would not turn, although there was power to the motor and it wanted to turn.
Sorry this is long...only this is about taking the motor itself apart..and I have yet to find a replacement motor.

1. Tried a little WD 40...(only on iron motor Housing!) nothing.
2. Took apart inside of motor. some rust inside..
3. carefully rubbed clean with WD 40..
4. leaned off WD 40 with contact cleaner...
5. Then worked little bearing loose on back side.
-Kind of turned upon reassembly..
6. Found some silicone High temp lubricant and took motor inside part again.
7. a very thin coat of lubricant inside rotor.
-Re assembled yet again..began to turn at high speed, kept running..24 hrs..
- It .finally turned at silent mode. and continues to work
This may be ar beyond what you want to do, however if all else fails...what else can you do? buy another one?
Tips:
1. mark rotor holders with housing. (do not reverse.)
2. make sure you remove all lint, dust, etc inside.
3. the rotor bearing I had to work by hand again and again repeatedly syringing a little WD 40 at a time to until it turned easily.

Electric motor makes screeching sound and stops running.


The motor has worn bushings making the motor shaft hot and swell and eventually seize. You can let it cool off and it will more than likely run again until it heats up again. The motor will have to be replaced if you want to repair it.

My Honeywell Type No. F50A Electronic Air Cleaner arced continuously even though I had cleaned it a few days prior. I shut the unit off and removed the air cleaner cells. Is it safe to run the furnace...


Yes you can run the furnace with out the electronic air cleaner for awhile.... It you are in a very dusty conditions than I would not run it very long a day or two....because you will not have any protection for dirty getting stuck on the evaporator coil or if you have a 90% gas furnace the secondary heat exchanger...and restricting air flow.... You can put in a 1" pleated air filter the same size as the total of the two cells in place of the cells till you can get the electronic working..... Sounds like either something big is caught across the cell plate or they are still wet and have not dryed out completely. Hope this helps.

We have model 11502 air purifier. Recently turned it on and it ran for a few minutes and then stopped. Motor sounded fine- no squealing, didn't slow down before it went off- just stopped like it was...


Yes there is a thermal cutoff that will shut the motor off for a period of time to protect it from getting to hot. If this is what happened after 20-30 mins. the motor should come back on and run again. If it does I would try to clean motor as best I could using a soft brush, vacumn, and blow out with air if possible. Clean fan of f as best you can to help motor run cooler.Hope this helps.Thank you

Alpine XL - 15 Fan Stopped Working


Hello again, night light,

I don't think you hurt it by nudging the blades - I have one where it does the same thing unless I have it set on "max".

The challenge is that I don't know which is more likely the problem - I haven't worked much with the electrical aspects of them recently - - I might have to try working with one, although it may vary between models - the one's on the circuit board would be harder to swap-out. What was the vintage of yours again?

Good for you on having a multimeter, and being willing to learn to use it!

All I was talking about earlier was using the CONT (continuity) function to check for a circuit (some models have a little buzz or beep that sounds when you have a connection. If you have the fan pot. wide open, you should be able to get a good signal between the terminals of the pot.

Another option - crude, but effective - would be to "jumper" (short-circuit) the fan terminals (at the pot.) together to see if it runs with the pot. bypassed out of the circuit. This shouldn't harm the motor, and if it still doesn't work, that points to the motor being bad. As always, use common sense and be safety-concious, don't bypass the safety cut-out switch or the like.

I may have to check with one of my brothers (biomedical electronics tech.) for a little additional guidance - - he could probably give me better insight without spending a lot of time on trial-and-error. If that happens, I'll follow-up with another Solution entry in the next few days.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have additional questions/comments for this item, please let me know.

If/when this solves the issue to your satisfaction, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon

Venta l44 motor won't run less than a yr. old


I own a 3-year old Venta L44 in which the motor stopped turning the wheels inside. It just sat there humming and eventually got hot. I sent an email to the Venta web site asking if they had a recycling program -- they don't. Instead, they replied (after a few days) stating that the motor was covered under the 10-year warranty. They sent me a new motor which was super easy to install. It didn't cost me a thing. It nows works perfectly.
