What Does an Electric Motor Do, and How Does It Work?
Electric motors have become commonplace practically everywhere, from home appliances, to vehicles, to toys, and many other domestic applications. Heavier-duty electric motors are a staple of many commercial and industrial machines, as well. But the principle of how all electric motors work is fairly simple. Current (either AC or DC) is passed through the motor, and the electromagnetic energy is used to create powerful magnetic fields, which are then harnessed to generate motion and accomplish work. Put even more simply, an electric motor uses magnets to create motion. The armature or rotor combines with other key motor components, often including a commutator, axle, brushes, and magnets to make it all happen. AC motors are generally designed to deliver more power and need less maintenance, while a DC motor tends to be more efficient. Which type of electric motor is best for each situation depends greatly upon what you’re asking it to do, and on what your particular application is intended to achieve.
In industrial environments, a wide variety of electric motor types are used to produce motion for lots of specific applications. Some of the more common types of industrial electric motors include servo motors (or servos), stepper motors, spindle motors, pump motors, hoist motors, and crane motors, just to name a few. These are used for machining fabrication, production, processing, transportation, and many other essential functions. If you’ve got something that needs doing in your business, an electric motor can probably help you do it – and also help you do it better.
What Can Lead to Electric Motor Failure?
Electric motors are the force which drives many important processes for business and industries. But even the toughest commercial equipment occasionally needs service, and sometimes experiences premature failure. Here are some of the more common issues we see with electric motors that come to our dedicated repair shop at AES:
Impacts from heat & high temperatures
One of the most common causes for electric motor deterioration is exposure to high heat. Sometimes the source of this heat is external, and sometimes it can also be produced by the motor itself. This extra heat can spell eventual doom for a motor; exposure to just a few extra degrees of heat can reduce the life of motor windings insulation by half.
Proper lubrication is important for most any machine, but this becomes even more crucial for motors which are designed to operate at high speeds and produce a lot of torque. Too little lubrication can result in excessive wear, and too much lubrication can create too much pressure on the system. It’s important to make sure you’re using the right type of lubricant for your motor too, paying special attention to properties like consistency, viscosity, and heat ratings.
Contaminant intrusion is a definite potential threat for electric motors. For this reason, many motors are placed inside of protected enclosures. Even so, dust and small particles can still sometimes find their way inside. In other industrial environments, chemical vapors or other fluids can pose a threat, too. Intrusion by any of these items can shorten the life of your motor.
Moisture and humidity will negatively impact most any electrical component over time, and this can result in real damage where electric motors are concerned. Maintaining a proper working environment for your motor can help to extend its life. And if you aren’t going to be using your motor for any length of time, it’s important to store it in a protected space where condensation and humidity are controlled, as well.
Power surge & power supply issues
Electric motors depend upon a steady flow of current in order to operate. It’s very important to maintain a steady, protected power supply. Current surges, over-voltage, and under-voltage conditions can all lead to electric motor malfunctions; in extreme cases, these situations can even lead to a motor failure.

We’ll then be able to share a repair quote describing exactly what we’ll need to do in order to get your equipment back up and running as good as new.
Your individually-assigned Customer Service Representative will connect with you personally; at AES, we’re big believers that the individual, personal touch is best. We’ll let you know what we discover after analyzing your motor, including any specific repair and/or service recommendations.
