I have this electric powered pressure washer that I want to fix. At this time, it appears (from talking to the tech of the airport that got rid of it) that the motor has an internal short. I would want to confirm this first, but let's assume for a moment that this is the case. The two obvious alternatives are buying a new motor or rewinding.
The motor is "6 HP" (sic), 3450 RPM, 182T frame, single phase motor,23 amps IIRC.
The best local quote that I got for rewinding this motor is $339. Is this in a reasonable ballpark or should I look harder?
I will try to test this machine during the weekend.i
