The 50 Failure Modes of Electric Motors

Terry Harris, CMRP

Electric motors fail many times at plant locations and sometimes cause costly downtime and create safety related issues. The motors fail for many reasons and in most cases we can eliminate many of these issues. By eliminating the failure modes the motor can last many more life cycles and reduce these downtime issues. Motor failures can be predicted with many PdM technologies and prevented with proper PM tasks. These failures can also be eliminated by being proactive and learning how to buy the right motor and install it correctly so it will last 15 years instead of 2 years.
