The Carlin PSC Motor utilizes a capacitor to assist start-up and run of the motor.
This eliminates the need for a start switch used in the split phase motor. The Carlin
motor capacitor is field replaceable for ease of service.
The Carlin PSC Motor has ball bearings not sleeve bearings. The ball bearings are
sealed and require no oiling. Ball bearing design eliminates much of the end play standard
motor shafts exhibit and allow for more consistent air flow
to the combustion head.
The Carlin PSC Motor features an AUTOMATIC
thermal overload protection system. This feature will help eliminate nuisance service
calls caused by failure of the manual overload reset switch, as well as, compensate for
overloads caused by temporary voltage fluctuations. This automatic reset system is
significantly more tolerant of overload than the traditional manual reset configurations.
The motor capacitor is located at the 9:00 (9
oclock) position making for convenient mounting to any burner with or without an
electrical box over the motor.
Electrical leads are long enough for easy
installation on any manufacturer's burner.
Backwards compatible with any 48M frame 3450
burner motor 1/7HP or 1/6HP.
TROUBLESHOOTING THE CARLIN PSC MOTOR CAPACITOR:
If the capacitor portion of the Carlin PSC Motor
should fail, it IS replaceable.
To check the operation of the capacitor follow
1. Disconnect electrical power to the burner.
2. Using electrical pliers carefully remove the
two wires one at a time from the capacitor.
3. You must be sure that the capacitor is not
storing a charge. CAREFULLY, USING A SCREWDRIVER WITH A WELL-INSULATED HANDLE, place the
screwdriver blade across the two capacitor terminals. This will insure that the capacitor
discharges any stored current.
CAUTION: UNDER CERTAIN CONDITIONS THE
CAPACITOR CAN STORE ELECTRICAL CHARGE, CREATING A HAZARD TO THE SERVICE TECHNICIAN. HANDLE
4. Using an Ohm Meter (an analog meter is
preferred, due to the fact that some digital meters will not respond rapidly enough to the
change in resistance) place one lead from the meter to each of the capacitor terminals.
The meter should go to a non-infinite reading immediately and then rapidly increase to an
infinity reading. This will happen in approximately one second. If the meter stays on a
non-infinite reading the capacitor has an open circuit and must be replaced. If the meter
reads a constant zero ohm reading, the capacitor has a short circuit and must be replaced.
