Shall I replace the AC fan motor, or is it possbile to repair?
I have a Hotpoint washer/dryer machine, and a shaded pole AC fan motor (see here) in it, which “works” very strange. If I connect it directly to the 230 V power network it runs very slowly, sometimes even stops, then start to spin again, and so on (no any load on the motor of course). But I can turn the motor with my finger easily.
I made a little video, where you can see the rotation stops at 00:04, then restart.
Do you think the repair of the motor is possible to repair, or buy a new one?
Thanks a lot if you can help me :-)
Is this a good question?
