Perhaps you have been told that your electric motor needs rewinding. In short, this means that the coils on your motor have become shorted or damaged. There are many reasons why this may have happened to your motor and can be an obvious problem when it occurs because you will likely either notice the failed insulation or shortened coils. We recommend calling Dom’s Electric Motors when this happens to your electric motor so that we can help you rewind new coils and get your motor up and running again.
You may be wondering about the process of an electric motor rewind. This three-step process is simple and will have your Electric motor up and running in no time. First, you will remove and strip the winding, also known as coils, from the motor. You’ll then replace those with new coils by connecting them to the motor. Lastly, the entire winding gets insulated. Although this may sound like an easy three-step process, it is certainly no easy task and should be done by a professional in the field to prevent any damage to the motor.
When Should You Rewind Your Motor?
Although motors generally last for several years, like most parts, they will eventually stop functioning properly because of common wear and tear. If you notice signs such as rust or other contamination, burns, or broken parts, it may be time to call Dom’s Electric Motors. Our team of professionals will be able to evaluate the damage done to the motor and see if rewinding is an option for you. This process is definitely the way to go if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to replacing your motor, however, you will need to ask a professional to look at this motor and see if rewinding is the possible solution to recovering the part. Sometimes if the wear and tear is too significant, replacing the motor entirely might be the only solution.
