Thumbnail Image of Download Laundry Equipment Electric Motor Service Manual
From the first page: The motor service manual has been prepared by Westinghouse Laundry Service with a threefold purpose. First - to explain the motor thoroughly so you will better understand its operation. Second - to show you how to use this information to diagnose motor failures and third, to make use of the diagnosis by repairing the inoperative motor rather than replacing it.

Studies indicate that nearly 70% of all laundry equipment fractional HP motor failures can be repaired (and put back into service in the appliance) on the first call to the customers home. These same studies show that, more often than not, the inoperative motor is replaced rather than repaired and that it requires more than one call to perform the job.

This book is not intended to be a one volume course on all fractional horsepower electric motors. Its intent is to help you to better perform your job as it applies to laundry equipment drive, pump and fan motors. Failures that occur on laundry equipment motors and which can economically and profitably be repaired are such parts as terminal boards, end bells, switches, thermoguard and capacitors (when they are used). There are also a number of adjustments that can be made to get the motor back into operation.

Strictly Experimental is this combination freezer-electronic range which General Electric demonstrated lost month. Housewife simply makes menu selection by pushing up to six of the 14 selector keys at top of unit. Dishes are then automatically conveyed to electronic oven at proper intervals so that completed meal comes out at one time. The freezer racks con be loaded with either pre-frozen commercial foods or home-prep a red meals . G-E officials emphasize that unit is nothing more than logical development of existing appliances and "does no take the place of a good cook." Instead, the XP C-1 allows housewife to prepare meals in advance and frees her from work while meal is being cooked.
