Ask Darryl
"Can a motor lose it's efficiency after rewinding"

YES if your repair center does a "fast burn-out".

NO if you carefully manage the oven burn-out procedures.


The following 3 issues are critically important:

  1. Control the oven temperature below NEMA standards. Increasing the temperature to give you a fast burn-out can kill motor efficiency.
  2. Control flame-outs. Use a modern oven with water vapor suppression to avoid runaway combustion.
  3. Control the time span. By programming the temperature rise and cool down, you avoid stator warpage
Motor efficiency measures energy loss. Energy loss means that you are wasting money by using a motor, which is no longer working at its peak performance. So it's really important to get a good rewind and a quality repair.
