I thought I was pretty versed on direct-drives, but I been working on one that as
me confused? When I first hooked it up it would fill properly and then nothing would
happen except for a humming noise and a bad burning smell from motor. So I ordered a new motor, still just a humming noise. I check the transmission, it turns
freely in both directions. I also changed the start capacitor, no help, so I went ahead
and ordered a new timer, thinking it may had some contacts, still no help, still getting
just the humming noise after it fills.
I'm sure I'm overlooking the obvious, any thoughts or helpfull suggestions?
Thanking you in advance,

I took the motor out of its mounts and tried as you suggested, still the same
humming noise from motor only. While observing, I was able to get the motor
running by turning the motor shaft a couple quick turns.(tried extra motor with
the same results).
Hopefully this info will help?
