  • BE Motor Locks Up

    I've got a Westinghouse BE motor that locks up. It stays locked up even after power is removed. If I remove stator it frees up. Why does it seize up after starting and runing well for a couple hours? Puzzled.

    I dont know for sure BUT perhaps the stator is really tight to the rotor and after some heat they swell up to the point of sticking together. Does the rotor show dragging marks from scraping inside the stator?

      Does it do it with a different stator?

        No drag marks on inside. Will try another stator.

              OPE bearing starting to freeze up? You might try repacking it and make sure the end bell is snug on it and not loose.

                Probably the bearing that sits in the end if the stator, when it runs does it sound ok

                  Like mentioned before, check the end bearing that goes into the end bell. Also make sure that the spring washer that goes against that bearing is in there.
