CARE OF MOTORS
CARE OF MOTORS237.Modern methods of design and construction have made the electric motor one of the least complicated and most dependable forms of machinery in existence and have thereby made the matter of its maintenance one of comparative simplicity. This statement should not, however, be taken to mean that proper maintenance is not important; on the contrary, it must be given careful consideration if the best performance and longest life are to be expected from the motor. The two major features, from the standpoint of their effect upon the general performance of the motor, are those of proper lubrication and the care given to insulation, because they concern the most vital, and probably the most vulnerable, parts of the machine.
