Had a 2000 HP 2300V 3600 RPM WP2 motor rewound say 4 months ago. Motor age is approximately 40 years old. The motor ran for 4 months after the rewind before it tripped due to a stator fault. Found that that the fault occurred from a finger that was holding the stator laminations had come loose. Is it unreasonable to consider that the rewind shop should have checked all fingers during the rewind? Considering that there are say maybe 1500 fingers on the stator holding the laminations together, is that reasonable?.
