Thumbnail Image of Download Consumer Bulletin Magazine - January 1972
Consumer Bulletin was a highly respected consumer product information magazine from the 1930's onward. It was the main competitor to Consumer Reports from the 1930's through the 1970's.

Articles on Products and Ratings in this issue include:
  • Automatic Dishwashers

  • Full discussion and tests of 13 portable and undercounter dishwashers are conducted.

  • Weather Instruments

  • Small Automobiles

  • Color Film


Please note this issue was lent to our library in a bound volume which could not be taken apart for scanning. An overhead book scanner was used, which produces very good quality scans, albeit with some slight page curling at the margins. The documents are clear and nice to read and the pictures are very good as well, however it's quite not up to the same image quality standard as a flatbed scanner.

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.
