There is a safety plate inside the machine so when the machine overheats the plates come apart. If this happens to many times the plates can actually stay apart and the pressure washer will not start or it will work for five minutes and then cut off. An electrician maybe able to help with this problem but I never advise anyone to tamper with the safety features of the pressure washer.

#What size electric motor, motor rpm and raw shaft speed Inca small saw bench

You may need to provide more details as it appears Inca has a number of work benches. Typically saws are not direct mounted on motors but it does happen on occasion. You may also want electrical safety features that will stop the motor from getting smoked when you hit your first nail.

Our 4 month old Frigidaire FRA256ST2 stopped working today.We had an eletricain check the plug and the unit is getting power.When you plug it in and press the reset,it beeps,LCD flashes but doesn't...

A dirty or clogged air intake filter will prevent the unit from turning ON, as a safety feature. If that isn't of doesn't solve the problem. Contact Frigidaire 1-800-944-9044. As you unit is still under 100% warranty at this point. They will repair it or replace it at their option. Don't do anything to the unit, that could possibly void the warranty.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

We have a 600 mx and the pad is not working, the only button working is the start, i cannot increase speed or incline it either.

It is very unusual to have no incline or walking belt operation..
Try entering diagnostic mode and do a calibration. The instructions are found under the motor cover on a tech sheet.
1: with the safety key removed, press stop and speed up simultaniously.
2: Attach the magnetic safety key.
3: press stop 1 time.
4: at this time, by pressing the incline up, the incline should calibrate, going up to maximum then back to minimum..
5: press the speed up key, you will see the numbers on the console increase. The machine should start moving the walking belt around 25-30 on the display. At 85 the belt should be running at maximum speed.
6: press speed down, the machine should stop.
7: remove the safety key. Now replace the safety key and try the machine again.If any of this procedure didn't work, I would suspect a defective console. Otherwise, the motor controller may need replacing.
Good Luck

Wheel is stiff. Safety feature keeps stopping

Sounds like their is a bind, you will have to have your local dealer inspect it. Either the machine needs a full oiling or thread has wrapped around something inside.

hope that helps,

Door window problem on Maxima 2003

Probably a circuit breaker tripping and then resets itself in time.Could be a loose wire or bad spot in motor. Try taking a can of silicone spray & spray the felt channels where window rides, and make sure you spray lots at lower part so it can run down in the channel below. Work window up & down a few times to spread it around and see if that doesn't help as well. May need to clean window after but small price to pay for a fix.
