Every motor repair shop is basically the same so it doesn't matter where you take your motor, right? Wrong! If you want to find out why this is so wrong, keep reading.
In my years in the electric motor repair industry, I have learned that if you have seen a motor shop, you have seen ONE motor shop. Each individual shop is truly unique, with its own specialty or individual approach to repairs. The same is true for the repair that you're taking in because each motor has its own quirks and issues.
Why Repair Shops Differ
From one electric motor repair shop to another, there can be major differences in method of repair, tolerances allowed, pass versus fail readings, etc. Each shop is going to have its own approach and methods to repairing a motor. And that means that the data taken and the repairs performed are only as good as the individual shop and the actual individual that performs them!
