I'm trying to repair a shaded pole induction motor from a home appliance. However, each time I connect the motor to the power outlet there is a spark in the same place (I've already tried 2x):
More information about the problem with such home appliance:
It seems this electric motor is Chinese, unfortunately there is no tag in it. My best guest is the following description:
- 120 VAC, 60Hz, 20W
To solder the wire from the coil, I've done the following steps:
- Remove the coating of the wire by applying some solder (How to solder enameled copper wire)
- Overlapping the wires (Soldering Thin Wires)
After that I did a continuity test to confirm the circuit was fine.
