  • bought a used grinder

    I bought a used cup grinder on stand fo a present for my old pal Fred I have one already but bought this as it's single phase and he could really use it he has been good to me so I want to do it up for him.Anyway the one I have is three phase no use for my pal the one I just bought is single it has a forward and reverse switch on the single phase motor with no capacitor it whan switched on made a humming sound then I started to spin the wheel by hand which turned very slowly then a cloud of smoke came out of the motor.What should I do the motor is flange mounted and 0.6 hp could it be just dirt as it has lain for some time without working Alistair

        all motors run on smoke, once the smoke escapes the motor quits.
