Vertical Turbine Pumps: Troubleshooting Vertical Motors Mobile App

Please refer to specific manufacturer instructions; these troubleshooting issues provided in the Vertical Turbine Pumps: Troubleshooting Vertical Motors mobile app are intended to be a guideline only. For additional technical assistance, please contact the motor manufacturer’s representative or the nearest authorized motor service facility. While an electric motor is a reliable machine, lack of maintenance and defects in design, manufacturing, or workmanship can sometimes occur. None of the protective devices available will provide maintenance or solve built- in motor defects, so it is worthwhile to know when to suspect the motor. Fortunately, a motor will tend to exhibit some signs of distress prior to a complete and catastrophic failure, and while it does take experience to recognize many of these symptoms, the following summary of possible motor problems can help prevent failure.
