What is electric motor rewinding?

Electric motor rewinding is the process of replacing the windings of an electric motor. Over time, the insulation on the windings may deteriorate, leading to reduced performance or motor failure. Rewinding involves removing the old windings and installing new ones with proper insulation and connections.

The rewinding process requires expertise and precision. It typically includes the following steps:

  1. Disassembly: Carefully dismantle the motor, labelling and documenting all components.
  2. Removal of old windings: Remove the old windings without damaging other components.
  3. Preparation of new windings: Prepare new windings, selecting the appropriate wire size and insulation materials.
  4. Installation of new windings: Install the new windings, following the original pattern and ensuring proper insulation.
  5. Connection and testing: Make the necessary connections and test the motor for correct operation.

Electric motor rewinding is a specialised skill that requires knowledge of motor design, electrical principles, and winding techniques. Our skilled professionals at our motor repair shop perform the rewinding to restore optimal motor performance.

Powerline provide free pick-up and drop-off services for customers located in Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, Buckinghamshire, and Warwickshire.

When do you know your electric motor needs rewinding?

There are several situations that may require motor rewinding:

  1. Insulation breakdown: Rewinding with new insulation prevents further damage and restores functionality when the insulation has significantly deteriorated.
  2. Overheating: Rewinding improves cooling efficiency and prevents overheating issues caused by prolonged high-temperature operation.
  3. Mechanical damage: Rewinding repairs or replaces damaged windings resulting from accidents or mishandling.
  4. Motor upgrade: Rewinding with different wire gauges or winding configurations can enhance motor performance for specific applications.

Note that rewinding may not always be the best solution. In some cases, it may be more cost-effective to replace the motor, especially if it is outdated or extensive rewinding is required. Consultation with our motor repair professionals;will help determine the most suitable course of action.

What are the benefits of rewinding your electric motor?

There are many benefits of electric motor rewinding, including:

  1. Cost-effective solution: Rewinding is often more cost-effective than replacing the entire motor.
  2. Extended motor lifespan: Rewinding with new windings and proper insulation prolongs the motor's lifespan.
  3. Improved performance: Rewinding can enhance efficiency, power output, and operational reliability.
  4. Customisation and upgrades: Rewinding allows customisation for specific requirements or performance upgrades.
  5. Sustainability: Rewinding contributes to sustainability efforts by reducing electronic waste and conserving resources.

Consult our motor repair specialists to assess whether rewinding is suitable for your electric motor and circumstances.
