Nah the fans works fine, but the neutral and hot are shorted inside the motors themselves.

A few weeks ago there was an unrelated electrical issue in my food truck so I was putzing around with my multimeter and came across something that's bugging me. I was noticing that the neutral and hot on one particular circuit were shorted. I first thought the outlet was wired wrong because the shitheels that did it in the first place did some head scratching things all over. The socket was fine, but when I checked the hot/neutral leads for each of the fans, they both read as shorted. Once the fans were unplugged, the hot and neutral in the outlet and at the panel had open resistance like they should.

One of the fans had some damage to the wire so I needed to replace the cord anyways. I yanked it out to see if I could get to the bottom line. After cutting off the melted section, I was still showing a short between my neutral and hot. I ended up unsheathing the entire cord and opening the motor to see if I could find the short somewhere to no avail. I'll admit it's been a while since college physics and working on the ship with the electricians, but the neutral and hot shouldn't be crossing, yet they are and it's inside the motor itself.

I'm probably just going to order some replacement fans, but I'm checking around to see if I'm just an idiot first.

unless you can strip down and rewind the motor and then revarnish it, it's probably the best bet if you have a short INSIDE a fan motor. if they're expensive you might be able to sell the cores to someone who wants to rebuild it

No no no no, I am not going to recount all the DUIs, arrests, domestics, positive drug screens for meth, suicide attempts, and bankruptcy claims of my old group of god's special little retards. Most of these incidents made me die a little on the inside.

Did you know that you can use the word "gently caress" on a sworn statement as many times as you want as long as it's in context? Ask me how I know.

Fuckin' a, prof, there's a reason why we use computers to design more computer circuits instead of doodling them by hand on test papers. :suicide:

Between that, the physics exam, ~4 hours of sleep, and a software update almost entirely disabling my phone last night, you'd think today was a Monday. But hey, got 'em done, and since I was able to get the phone's WiFi working in school, it has somehow magically regained the ability to connect to cell networks. :woop: One more lecture and one more lab to go!
