old GE mag
Yesterday one of my electricians went on a call to a oil drilling rig. The call was for what the mechanic said was a controlling device not working. The mechanic states he has already changed the 60hp motor and the pin & sleeve male and female cord ends on the portable cord (everything on an oil rig is hooked up with portable cord & fed from a generator via switchgear) that feeds this machine (I think it's called the "de-sander"). While my electrician was there I get a call asking me if I had a catalog or somewhere to look up parts for an old GE magnetic motor starter. What has happened is the reset arm that sticks out of the overload relay block has been broken off flush with the relay block, my J/M says unless you know there is supposed to be an arm there you would never know it. The reset button on the outside of the starter bucket/cabinet was pushed several times by the oilies but they didn't realize that it wasn't hitting the reset arm. What I need is somewhere to look up the parts for an old GE mag. The cat. # is CR206FQ. This is the number right on the front of the mag. I went to GE's web site and tried to enter the cat. # in their e-catalog search box for motor starters and couldn't find anything. I'm not sure if this mag is too old or what. I haven't seen this mag, but my electrician says it's quite old and given the condition of the switchgear, I can believe it. Any help I can get from this forum would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
