I have a couple of questions regarding this Motor:
[*]The RPMs listed is 1440, which sounds like a Shaded Pole Motor. Is this the nameplate RPMs at 60 Hz?,
[*]Is this Motor a Capacitor Start, Capacitor Run type (if not a Shaded Pole Motor)?,
[*]Is this Motor run at or near full load output for an extended period of time?,
[*]Is the Motor's frame hot to the touch?,
[*]Is the Motor large enough to handle the duty?
[*]Is the Motor being run on 208 VAC or 230 VAC?
If the RPMs listed is 1440 and the Motor is not a Shaded Pole Motor, maybe it's a 50 Hz Motor???
Please add as much information possible, so we can give you a more complete answer.
