Low spin RPM
« on: March 08, 2008, 02:32:52 PM »

I posted this on another web site and didn't recieve any answers. Hopefully someone here can help.

The machine spins but at a 50 or less RPM. It shows no fault codes. Iran it through it's fieldd and extended diagnostics and there are no codes. I checked the help section on the control board and also there are no codes. The machine operates in all cycles and functions but doesn't come up to it's 800RPM speed.

I checked the motor control board, harness and motor conncections; all fine.

I did a voltage check at the board; good. I also did a motor and control test; this too was good. Although the motor test was good I did a phase test also. All three phases worked perfectly. I've eliminated the motor and a thinking the motor control board is bad.

Any one got any ideas?

Install the 12002039 motor conversion kit. Should do the trick.

Part # 12002039 Motor - Drve, AP4010145
