a motor has been tripping out the breaker. (single phase 240v) If i disconnect the motor from the contactor the breaker stays latched the contactors also latch in indicating a fault on the motor.
How can I be sure that the motor is faulty?. the motor has a capacitor on the top so i assume it's a capacitor start/run motor.
The only wires going from the contactors to the motor are LIVE, NEUTRAL, EARTH
If i put a meter across the live and neutral I get 2000 ohms which sounds very high to me. There dosen't seem to be any leakage from the live or neutral down to earth.
am i reading this right?
