Delt Homecraft Shaper, an update, Motor Problem and a short video
the newly installed motor(older cratfsman 1hp, cap start) on my rockwell shaper seems to have a serious problem
it was working great in both directions for several hours then started tripping the breaker after a second or two of starting
disconnected the reverse switch setup and wired it directly, no change
i noticed significant arcing on the run contacts in the drum switch so i checked the run winding with a vom, zero ohms across the winding and zero ohms between the winding terminals and the motor housing, so a short somewhere
doesnt sound good for sure, any suggestions?
