Jenn, you are doing way better than many of the people I have dealt with over the years in my factories of fixing things. I don't feel you have any need to concern yourself with that.

GWIZ has got you going and he explains stuff very well, (for me anyway) His post have helped me more than a few times. I don't know for sure but we may be in the same or similar line of where we draw a check from type of employment.

I'll will reiterate the comment from Him about do not move wires around any more than you have to, I bet that stuff pops and creaks like bubble packaging being popped when you move it around. If you can get the 2 wires out of their connecting point going to the motor without taking everything apart you might be better off. It sounds like you may be taking it off anyway.

From what you are describing the motor is running on half voltage, which would explain running all the time until you press the anneal button.

An industrial motor repair shop in your area would be a good place to look as far as repairs. You may get lucky and find a bare spot in a wire going from one coil to another and be able to fix it yourself.

Ok I have been in this kitchen to long. Would not want to spoil the fixing of this.

Thanks Scott, I can use all the encouragement I can get.

I pulled the motor/clockworks and it is the wire for sure that was attached to the anneal switch.

Jen is like a "Pitbull" totally relentless in pursuit of of a goal. I never had a doubt this puzzle would be solved. If you have any doubts check out the Blacksmith school thread. She moved a swamp more or less 14,000 tons of fill. Wholly Fuckin wow

Hello Jen,

Have you found and carried out the solution to your issue with this?

Broken blades want to know.

Scott

I actually was waiting for further instructions at to what to do next.. LOL.

I was told to be careful with the wires..

Do I do anything or just find a motor company to take care of it?

When I was younger I rewound a motor but that was a different thing both in size and scope.

Yes, go easy on unnecessary bending of the wiring on ALL older equipment. Treat them with tender loving care emphasis on tender. I'm at a loss for any advice on this one other that the usual visual inspection and maybe ohm checking of the coils and switches.

you have two wires
first measure the resistance across the two wires and let me know what it is (that would be the total resistance of the motor coils in series).

Then measure the resistance from one wire to the metal case and let me know that reading.
Then the same with the other wire and let me know that reading.

While you are doing this DO NOT bend the wires around any more than you have to, I don't want you to remove the short.
I was waiting for you to finish the Instructions from post 39. but figured you were working on something bigger.

cut the burn through spot off the wire, strip the wire and post the resistance readings.

If the readings are good (no leakage to metal in auto ranging mode) add a piece of wire for length, solder and heat shrink tubing.

then we can go back to the L1 and L2 issue.

370ohms on what we will start calling lead 2 that normally goes to the anneal switch.

No reading lead 1

What reading do you have from lead 1 to lead 2?

You have a wire going to the metal part of the motor. You also have a coil or two of the motor in there. Between your lead contact point on lead 2 to the motor case.

That would be the reason you were thinking the motor was running about half speed.

If you want to dig in look very carefully where the coils connect to each other. Otherwise it’s time to find a repair shop.

Make sure you find a shop that does not ship winding jobs like this out.

Take all the gears off if you can. The least amount of parts you give them will be the less they can loose or break.
