1250 Hp. Reliance motor oscillating while running

Hello all, I have 3-1250 Hp. Reliance drive motors on an overland conveyor. One of the motors seems to be oscillating when running, this is creating noise in the gear train due to the oscillations. I have strobed the H/S coupling at 1800 RPM and it appears the motor is trying to stop. When you look at the attached video you can hear the gearmesh noise when the coupling drops down. I have strobed the other 2 motors and you can see the same thing with the coupling and slightly hear some...Read More...

Spindle and limit switch wiring is all shielded and properly grounded. Limit switches are configured as normally closed. I’m virtually at a standstill. Any help?Read More...
