Testing The Motor Circuit Resistance.
Notice: If you are not experienced in troubleshooting electrical circuits, DO NOT PROCEED Ref: (OSHA 1910.339). Call an experienced electrician. This procedure is only an aid and not intended for training.  We at Electrical Helper.com assume no liability for any use or misuse of the information contained herein.
Remember, this test is checking the DC resistance between motor terminals (M1 - M2).  The meter reading should be near zero.  If the resistance reading is more than just a few ohms and the connections in the junction box are good, contact your electric motor repair facility. Turn off and lockout tag out the power serving the motor circuit in question. Using an ohm meter, test the motor circuit resistance as described here.
