Electric Snow Plow Not Running Well? Signs It Is The Electrical System Or Motor

If you use a snow plow and it is not running well for you, it could be the electrical system or the motor. Below is more information about this so you will know the type of problem you are having with your electric snow plow.

Check for Electrical Problems

If the motor is trying to start but won't stay running, it could be a problem with the electrical connection.

Because you have an electric snow plow, you must plug it in to charge it up. If there is not a full charge, this could be the problem. You may also have a problem with the electrical outlet you are using to charge your snow plow. You can use a meter to ensure the voltage is correct at the outlet or hire an electrician to do this for you. Try to plug the electrical cord to another outlet to see if this charges the motor better.

Check for Motor Problems

If your snow plow is still having problems and you are sure there are no problems with the electrical connection, you may have motor problems. First, inspect the cables and wires for any kind of cuts or other damage. If you see any of these, replacing these cables and/or wires should fix your problem. This is because a wire or cable problem will cause a short, which will not allow power to get to your motor well when the snow plow is plugged in. Check all connections also to make sure everything is tight. If not, use the right tool to tighten these connections to see if this fixes the problem.

Electric snow plows use fuses to keep the electrical system running. If you use the snow plow a lot this puts a lot of load and work on the fuses and the fuses may blow or burn out. In a case like this, you can simply replace these fuses with new ones. If you are not sure how to check the fuses, refer to the owner's manual that came with your snow plow.

If your snow plow is still not running well, the problem is likely with the motor. In a case like this, you should take the snow plow to a professional that works on electrical snow plows to have the motor repaired or replaced with a new one.
