Keny: I like multiple choice exams!

A- Open shunt field. Motor would not run.
B- Phase to phase short. OCP would trip.
C- Stator is shorted or... OCP would trip.
D- Something else....

I think the answer is D.

Is this poly phase? Could be a single phasing motor.

Check amp draw on each leg, for premature failure and to see if motor is overloaded mechanically.

Bearing will usually be a higher pitch, than an overloaded or weakening motor.


:cool

Just some thoughts.

DC Shunt motor with open shunt field WILL run, away that is making a very distinct sound I might add.

How about:

* E. All Of The Above
* F. All Of The Above, Under Certain Circumstances
* G. If There Was A Description Of The Type Of Motor And The Load On Shaft, Answer May Be Derived
* H. All Of "A" Through "G"

I will choose "H"!!!

Keny, is this an exam question also?
If so, what is your answer and how did you arrive at it?
