One of the unique motor applications we’re often called upon to service is the “shaker screen duty”or vibrator motor. See Figure 1. These are mechanically robust electric motors, fitted with large eccentric weights, designed to deliberately vibrate – a lot. The unusual application calls for some special considerations when repairing these motors. This article is intended to consolidate those tips in one place.

When dismantling the motor, the first step is to document the position of the eccentric weights on both ends, relative to each other, so the performance characteristics remain unchanged. Note that many of these are fitted with two weights on each end and that only one of the weights is keyed. The second weight can be shifted relative to the first to allow adjustment of the unbalance to suit the application. In some applications, for example, when shaking a product through a hopper, the weights might be adjusted to different settings to move materials of different density. See Figure 2.
