While it may seem like motor failure is very common, often times the real issue is an incorrect application or control circuit problem. In many cases, motor failure can be an indication of more serious issues down the line. Luckily, with the help of an experienced technician, troubleshooting and repairs can be easy and stress-free.

How to Handle an Electrical Control Problem

Safety First
First things first, unless you are an experienced repair technician, it is a good idea to schedule a service appointment if you are dealing with electrical issues affecting a pump or motor. It is important to put your safety and the safety of your employees first when troubleshooting electrical issues. If dealing with a conveyor belt, watch where you are placing your hands and be aware of any boxes or other materials that may be coming down the conveyor belt.

Listen, Look and Feel
Take the time to visually assess any damage to the system and be careful to feel for any catch points that could prevent the conveyor belt from working properly. If there are any abnormal sounds coming from the system be sure to take note and give this information to the repair technician, especially if the noise is intermittent. When possible, it may be necessary to shut down all power to the system to prevent further problems.

Leave the Hard Work to the Professionals
Whether your system is in need of a few minor repairs or you need to install a brand new motor and controls, it is best to leave the difficult work up to the professionals. If you are experiencing an electrical control problem, be sure to contact the expert team at Mader Electric to get fast, efficient and friendly service when you need it the most!
