Motor #1

Purpose:
The trainee will troubleshoot a problem(s) in a three-phase motor created by the Electrical Power instructor.  Using the correct meters, the trainee will diagnose, locate, and verify the problem(s).
 
Procedure:
Troubleshoot the three-phase motor according to the given information.
 
Motor # 1 Situation:
Your supervisor pages and asks you to troubleshoot a motor taken off the production line that is causing down time.  He tells you that it will start and run for a short time before tripping the heaters on the starter.  The motor was connected 230 Volt 3 Phase.
 
Use the correct meters to troubleshoot the motor.  Show below on the diagram exactly where you find a problem, if any.  Use the correct terminology to describe any problems.

Motor #2

Purpose:
The trainee will troubleshoot a problem(s) in a three-phase motor created by the Electrical Power instructor.  Using the correct meters, the trainee will diagnose, locate, and verify the problem(s).
 
Procedure:
Troubleshoot the three-phase motor according to the given information.
 
Motor # 2 Situation:
Your supervisor pages and asks you to troubleshoot a motor that has been taken off the production line because it is running hot and sometimes trips the heaters or blows a fuse.

Use the correct meters to troubleshoot the motor.  Show below on the diagram exactly where you find a problem, if any.  Use the correct terminology to describe any problems.

Motor #3

Purpose:
The trainee will troubleshoot a problem(s) in a three-phase motor created by the Electrical Power instructor.  Using the correct meters, the trainee will diagnose, locate, and verify the problem(s).
 
Procedure:
Troubleshoot the three-phase motor according to the given information.
 
Motor # 3 Situation:
Your supervisor pages and asks you to troubleshoot a motor on the line that is causing down time.  He tells you that it blows fuses when the starter pulls in.
 
Use the correct meters to troubleshoot the motor.  Show below on the diagram exactly where you find a problem, if any.  Use the correct terminology to describe any problems.
