I really need some advice here:
I have a Wait drum humidifier which stopped working; the drum stopped turni ng. Instead of calling someone , I decided to try to fix it myself: I bought a new motor clutch assembly at Home Depot, cut the wires to the old motor, and connected the new one. It started to turn. So, I then screwed it into t he housing, but it never worked after that. If I turn the thermostat up and I hear the click, then once or twice I could feel something inside the mot or, but the clutch has not turned since the first time.
It is possible that the second motor was faulty. Or maybe there is not enou ght current getting to the motor. What should I try next? Is there a way of testing the electrical side of things?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
