Troubleshooting Electric Motors

When choosing a grease, you should take into account factors such as moisture, bearing load, speed, temperature and shaft orientation.

 Electric motors are important to many industrial, municipal and commercial operations. When the motors begin malfunctioning, facility managers face a difficult choice: Should they repair it or replace it?

 Electric motors are important to many industrial, municipal and commercial operations. When the motors begin malfunctioning, facility managers face a difficult choice: Should they repair it or replace it?

 While repairing the motor might appear to be an inexpensive and quick solution, the equipment’s long-term reliability and efficiency are in question because it may fail again in the future. Replacing the motor may be more expensive and time-consuming, but the equipment will likely last longer without failure than a repaired unit.

 Before motor failure occurs, it is best to have a repair/replacement plan in place so that facility managers can make informed decisions about whether repair or replacement is appropriate. If and when a motor fails, the plan enables facility managers to make informed decisions about whether repair or replacement of the motor is appropriate without being blindsided by short-term aims (e.g., minimizing downtime). Consulting with your electric motor repair shop and electric motor vendors will provide valuable insight into application-specific issues that can be addressed, and resolution of issues can be designed out or modified in the repair process.
