Tom Zapf Posted March 8 Share Posted March 8 Robert I am confused, you said it did spin up when you got it back, but the issue is now showing up after assembly . how did you test it before assembly? i have had the experience in the past where the rear spacer on a motor disintegrated allowing the shaft and armature to move too far back and it would lock up. i added a spacer to recenter the armature in the coils and it works fine... i am wondering 2 things, is the back end of the shaft into the oscillator gear box jamming up with something in the oscillator box when power is added? when you power the fan up does the blade, shaft etc all move backwards or frontwards following the magnetic field? ...dont be insulted when i ask this because i have done this myself...is the stator facing the right way? i have done this! lane is right for you to check for play in the bearings , but i am still confused as to how it ran ok when first direct wired it ....hmmmmmmmm Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
