ELECTRIC MOTOR (cont)
TEST FOR OPEN STATOR
Motor fully assembled.
Motor leads disconnected from
Capacitor case removed to
Set to OHMS x 1 scale.
Connect to motor leads as shown
A reading of infinity in steps 1 or 2
means that one of the windings is open.
A reading of infinity in step 3 means
T1 and T2
that either the starter winding or the
T3 and T4
centrifugal switch is open. A reading
T9 * and T8
of 0 in step 4 means that the capacitor
T5 and T8
∗Tag is one of the capacitor
Set to OHMS x 1000 scale.
2. Multimeter test leads
Connect to two capacitor leads.
you first touch the leads to the capaci-
tor, there might be a small deflection
of the meter needle because the ca-
pacitor is being charged up. A reading
ROTOR IS NOT
of 0 means the capacitor is shored out.
