The start capacitor (161-193 uF, 125V) failed (black goo everywhere, motor would hum but not turnover) and I replaced it and then it failed again (brown goo everywhere) after about 1 week of use. Yes there is a motor run one as well, no obvious swelling of that one. After 3yrs no problems , one of the capacitors blew, motor would not start. Looks like the start switch failed and burned out the winding. A phase failure is an interruption of a single conductor. A damaged or burnt out capacitor may … It is also beneficial to make sure that the overload relay system is adjusted correctly. If the capacitor has failed the symptom is that the motor won't start. This Instructable dea… The motor will come up to speed, run for a few minutes, pump water then trip the overloads. It will run for about 30 min in hot weather then … Help with a single phase 2KW motor that's blowing fuses, Re: Help with a single phase 2KW motor that's blowing fuses. And it appears the motor starter is just a motor starter. It holds moisture and the moisture leeches chemicals out of the sawdust that attacks the insulation. Fortunately those motors are common as can be. my guess is the start switch has failed shorted, and that is probably the reason the old motor start cap blew up. It just had bad bearings. Overloaded Circuit . The motor then continues running with two phases and can suffer damage. This troubleshooting guide can also be applied to other types of three phase induction motors: The motor is a 1.5 -2.0 HP Single phase 240 volt domestic electric motor . hello, i have a single phase electric motor blowing fuses, its a 240 volt 2.2kw motor and every time i plug it in it blows the fuse 13 amp any ideas as to why thanks They had a guy in back who rewound electric motors of all types, stuff was a lot more expensive back then and it was worth doing. 0 Members and 1 Guest are viewing this topic.
