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.

Beautiful sales literature brochure highlighting the new colors in the GE appliance line.

In the 1950s, General Electric was first with Mix-and-Match, an innovative color concept that allowed homemakers to combine pastel appliance shades for an exciting, modern look. In the 1960s, GE was first to bring you Harvest and Avocado, the trend-setting decorator colors that brought kitchens alive with rich new tones. And now, GE is first again with The New Naturals, the widest range of colors ever offered by General Electric.

Now you can get the natural look with the all-new appliance color Almond, a subtle shade that blends beautifully with almost any other color. Or choose one of the five other New Naturals, all in a high-gloss finish and all designed for maximum decorating versatility: Coffee, Fresh Avocado, Harvest Wheat, Onyx, and Snow.
