Hallo Leute, wird hier Englisch gesprochen? Ich lese Deutsch aber sie kaum schreiben kann!
Your advice & suggestions please. I have a problem with my son's Fleischmann BR 360 159 shunter with a pancake motor, it looks about new. Model number 4223. I'd just lubricated the motor and gearwheel bearings and was testing by applying power to the brush caps. It was running nice and smoothly until one probe slipped! Theerafter, the motor just doesn't turn. I've removed the motor, it turns freely by finger, with discernable "cogging". When power is applied, it turns just a fraction and stops. I can feel a strong magnetic field if I try to turn the armature. Current drain is high but not a dead short, though I can't immediately measure it. My meter shows about 12-15 ohms between each commutator segment.
What have I broken?
Helpful suggestions please.
Vielen Dank im Voraus,
