Frigidaire F/L Washer Motor - We'll Call Him 'Sparky'
Posted 17 April 2005 - 09:32 PM
During all of the troubleshooting, I noticed something odd with the main motor. Namely, that the motor will emit sparks during the highest speed spin cycle. There's quite a plasma cloud between the armature and the brushes during that cycle only, and it starts shooting sparks that look to be ferrous material from the color after a bit of time in full spin. The smell of ozone is quite clear also about then...not a big surprise.
I tried to figure out a way to adjust the brushes but it doesn't appear possible. Am I simply having a blond moment or is the motor truly non-serviceable like most stuff nowadays? OTOH, is this normal and to be expected?
Something tells me this motor ain't long for the world if I let this go on - and my house might not be too!
