How to check a electric motor to see if good?


It is important to check the electric motor of an appliance to see if it is in good working condition. Here are a few things to check. First, look at the outside of the motor to check for broken mounting holes and feet, darkened paint, which indicates heat, and evidence of foreign matter pulled into the motor. Second, check the ball bearings. Do this by rotating the shaft, since the bearings allow the shaft to rotate easily. Third, check the windings if they have the proper resistance and if the they are open or broken.
