Hi fellow woodworkers:
I have a shop compressor with a 220V induction motor that would not
start. It does not hum or create any noise whatsoever when I flip the
switch. I browsed through groups and through Google but came with
cases when the motors at lease hummed to indicate that they were
getting a juice.
Here are a few diagnostics I ran:
Tested voltage at the switch terminals of the motor. The voltage
across two out of phase leads is 240 volts when the switch is in off
position. The voltage is almost zero when the switch is flicked on.
Power switch works fine and correctly makes and breaks the contacts.
What other tests I need to run before opening the motor housing.
