14.7.4. Main malfunctions of a starter

GENERAL INFORMATION

REASON
ELIMINATION METHOD
The starter does not work
The accumulator is discharged
Charge the accumulator
At connection of plugs 30 and 50 the starter starts to work
Restore an electric power-supply circuit of a starter
Break or short circuit on mass of a wire of a starter
Check a condition of wires and, if necessary, replace them
Current reduction because of weak fastening or oxidation of contacts of wires
Clear contacts and reliably fix wires
There is no tension on the plug 50 traction relays
Break of an electric power-supply circuit of a starter which is necessary for restoring
The starter rotates slowly and does not turn a cranked shaft of the engine
The accumulator is discharged
Charge the accumulator
Current reduction because of weak fastening or oxidation of contacts of wires
Clear contacts and reliably fix wires
Coal brushes insufficiently densely adjoin to a collector or have defects
Check a condition and, if necessary, replace coal brushes
Coal brushes do not contact with a collector
Replace coal brushes
The working surface of a collector has damages
With Proshlifuyte a working surface of a collector or replace an anchor
The tension submitted to a starter, less than 10 In
Check the relay of a strater or the traction relay
The traction relay is faulty
Replace the traction relay
The starter works normally, but does not turn a cranked shaft of the engine
Pollution or defect of a driving gear wheel of a starter
Clear or replace a driving gear wheel of a starter
The gear wreath of a flywheel is worn-out
Replace a flywheel
There is no unhooking of a gear wheel of a starter to a gear wreath of a flywheel
The leading gear wheel of a starter or screw cutting on a starter shaft are polluted or damaged
Clear or replace a leading gear wheel or a starter anchor
The traction relay is faulty
Replace the traction relay
Elasticity decreased or the returnable spring broke
Replace a returnable spring
The starter continues to work after switching off by its ignition key
Burning of contacts of the traction relay
Immediately switch off ignition or remove a weight wire from the accumulator
The lock of ignition does not disconnect a starter
Immediately remove a weight wire from the accumulator and replace the ignition lock

PERFORMANCE ORDER
1. If at inclusion of a starter it is not audible click of the traction relay and the engine of a starter does not work, check, whether tension on the plug 50 moves.
2. At engine start tension on the plug 50 should be lower than not less than 10 V.Esli tension 10 In, check an electric power-supply circuit of a starter.
3. For check of a condition of an electric chain of a starter execute the following actions.
4. Tighten the hand brake and establish the gear shifting lever in neutral situation. Include ignition.
5. Using an additional wire section 4 mm2, connect plugs 30 and 50.
6. If the engine of a starter starts to rotate, means, the electric power-supply circuit of a starter is faulty.
