Purpose of electric motors in Forklifts

Often, this electric device is found in Forklifts used for indoor operations. The electric motor uses mechanical energy for the forklift motion without a drive shaft or a transmission mechanism. This device also is in charge of the functions of:

  • The electrical components.

  • The hydraulic system.

Common problems

The motor stops running or runs poorly for different reasons:

  • Short circuits in the coil, connections, or between phases: A short circuit is the most known problem of an electrical motor. It can be caused by:

  1. Metal elements that accidentally join the contacts.

  2. Cables broken or badly damaged.

  3. The lack of insulating varnish of the conductors.

  4. Humidity, dust, and water leaks.

  • Motor overload: It occurs when the motor works with a load more significant than the maximum allowed. Another factor that could cause this problem is a stuck motor shaft. The leading cause of motor failure is a temperature rise. It causes premature wear of the motor and its internal parts.

  • Supply voltage: This problem usually occurs when the line voltage is different in each phase and the motor heats up. It directly affects the insulation system and the lubrication of the bearings.

Big Joe rebuilt motors by Lift Parts Warehouse

A lot of people confuse the term rebuilt with repaired. The reason is due to the fact that they believe that both mean "repairing," but it is more than that. When a damaged motor is repaired, we talk about a piece replacing or a fixed specific problem. On the other hand, a rebuild is the total reconstruction of a used motor, i.e., the extensive repairing of the motor. It ensures that this device works without problems.

Here at LPW, we pick the Big Joe forklift motors suitable for its re-building. To do this, our expert technicians carry out a full check of all the parts and evaluate their performance. All the worn parts and bearings are replaced before the assembly of the motor. After a deep cleaning of its components, our professional team takes measures to check the performance of the motor armature. This procedure is performed by using the correct tools and top-quality new parts, including when a rewinding of the motor is required.

The final result is a motor with a bolting torque and filler values that comply with the maker's specifications.
