How Can I tell if my Shopsmith motor is repairable?

You can tell by inspecting the coil winding for any sign of damage or burn as shown in the pictures above. If you see no sign of burns or damage to the coil winding, plug the motor into a power outlet 110v/15Amp or 20Amp.

If the motor runs with unusual vibrations and noises or If it hums, disconnect the power immediately. The motor in most of those cases can be rebuilt. If you are not sure call us at 505 349-3599 we will guide you on how to test it.

We service all motors used in the Shopsmith mark v machine including motors manufactured by Franklin, GE, AO Smith, and Emerson.
