my motor burn out and I replaced it and the same thing happened again. before I put the second motor in the gas line was not connected. When I tested the machine t work fine, but when i connect the gas line it work for a few second then the motor went bad again.. I checked for proper for voltage and found the correct 120 voltage. Could another component be the reason why the motor went bad the first and second time?, thanks.
Ps there is no model # on this machine or it missing.
ANSWER Phillip, Based on your description, the first thing to due is check for voltage on you gas supply line. Using a multi meter set the meter to read voltage, place one meter probe on the gas supply shut off or pipe, and the other probe on the cold water supply pipe, there should be NO / 0 voltage reading. If there is no voltage, you'll need to check and see where the wiring harness or component has shorted to the cabinet or chassis ground. Especially the L1(power) and N (neutral) wires to the motor, it sounds like the power supply is "scrambled" and you're supplying more than 132 volts to the motor, causing the motor to fail.
