The electric motor should not under any circumstances be lifted by the shaft, but it must be raised by the lifting eye located in the housing. The survey or electric motor deposit must be made free of shocks and smoothly, otherwise, the electric motor bearings may be damaged.
If the electric motor is not installed immediately, it should be stored in a moisture-free location, dust, gases and corrosive agents. The environment must also have uniform temperature and placed in a normal position and no other object should be leaning against it.
It is common that the case be stopped for a long time, the electric motor miss insulation resistance and bearings oxidize and it is for this reason that the bearings and the electric motor lubricant should receive extra attention during the storage period.
Against corrosion, the electric motor should not be near machines that vibrate and its axis should be connected in manual way at least once a month.
