Common problems and reasons of worm gear reducer:

Common problems and reasons of worm gear reducer:
(1) The transmission pinion helical gear is worn, (2) the bearing (at the worm) is damaged.
1. The transmission pinion helical gear is worn.It usually occurs on the reducer of vertical installations, mainly related to the increase of lubricating oil and the selection of lubricating oil.When the vertical installation is used, it is very simple to form a lack of lubricating oil. When the reducer stops working, the transmission gear oil between the motor and the reducer is lost, the gears cannot be properly lubricated, and they cannot be used during startup or operation. The smoothness causes mechanical wear and even damage.
2 The worm bearing is damaged.When the reducer breaks down, even if the reducer is well sealed, the factory often finds that the gear oil in the reducer has been emulsified, and the bearings have been rusted, corroded and damaged. The oil is composed of water condensation that occurs after the heat becomes cold; of course, it is also closely related to the quality of the bearing and the technical measures of the installation.
