Warp 9" Motor Vibration at Higher RPMs

1640 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Woodsmith
Has anyone seen issues with their motor starting to vibrate as the RPMs increase? I am guessing this is happening due to a slightly unbalanced hub/flywheel.

Any suggestions on how to diagnose/resolve?

I don't have a TAC attached so can't gauge the RPMs but it continues to get worse the higher the RPMs. Everything still works-- I am just having to run in a higher gear than is probably optimal in order to keep the vibration down...

You should really try to get to the bottom of this as it could lead to other issues (bearing wear, sheared motor shaft, or tearing up the end-bell, or worse..) I have seen some adapters that were the cause, but I have not experienced a motor armature as the cause in the past 12 years - though it "could" happen..
