3 phase motor problems

3 phase motor problems

3 phase motor problems

Hey rhatcher and wireman1 thanks for the advice.Today i when
i went to work and started fresh also with some new ideas
of what the problem could be based on what rhatcher said.
I checked the cord plug ends and found a badly coroded
connection.It was bad enough that the front two motors on
the lift were only getting two of the three phases.I would
bet it caused the one motor to shift when it was running
at one point.I also had a bad circuit breaker that was tripping,leading me to believe i had a short.Figured you guys would want to know.Thanks alot.For the record your
knowledge and my hard work were credited to the guy who
came over to me and was B.S.'n at me this morning haa!
sometimes you can't win boys!!! Thanks again.
