The question gets asked...
- How often should an electric motor be pulled for preventive maintenance (PM) cleaning?
- How many years should go in-between motor reconditions?
- How often should i have the bearings changed on my motor?
There are countless ways to ask the question and it is a common question that all electric motor repair shops get. A plant wants to know how often we recommend pulling the motors for a recondition, or as others call it, a "clean and bake". This is essentially a repair before a failure; a repair to make sure everything is "ok" before an actual failure occurs. This also allows for cleaning of any debris that has accumulated on or even in an electric motor while it was running, in-service.
