How do you test electric motor windings?


To test electric motor windings, remove all the power from the motor and tag the circuit breaker to avoid power shocks. Clean the windings tighter with the interior with soap. Connect the probes to the ohmmeter and set it to a reading of zero ohms. Check the motor schematic and use meter to compute the resistance readings.

How to Test Electric Motor Windings
When a bad motor winding cannot be found by a physical inspection, many times an ohmmeter may show that there is a defective winding. Most repair shops will use a "megger" or a ground insulation tester. The megger will help to detect areas of... More »
