I've got a GE 1/2 hp 1720 rpm motor I'm having troubles with. Its a brand
new motor and has the wiring diagram right on the tag and according to it
all the connections are correct. The problem is it will only run for about
10-20 seconds before it overheats (gets hot to the touch) and the thermal
overload shuts it down. The strange part is if I reverse it (change two
wires) its fine. It only does this in the clockwise direction. Its
definitely a reversing motor, says so right on it and according to the specs
that came with it. Any ideas?
Junk is something you've kept for years and throw away three weeks
before you need it.
I guess returning it makes the most sense I just thought Id check around
first and see if this was something that's been experienced before and could
be fixed easily. If I thought it was just a matter of changing a wire or two
then that would be alot easier to do than returning it and waiting for
another yada yada. But I guess its something internal which I'm not about to
tackle myself. Thanks anyway everyone.
