How often should electric motor bearings be lubricated?

In order to maximise the efficiency and operating life of an electric motor, planned routine maintenance is essential. Bearings are, of course, a fundamental motor component and if greasing is neglected they can deteriorate, causing issues such as overheating and misalignment. But how often should electric motor bearings be lubricated?

Gibbons' Sales Manager Paul Scott says: "Any regular motor maintenance programme must include checking and re-lubrication of bearings at intervals of around 2,000 hours, which normally equates to once every three months. It's also worth remembering that the frequency of re-greasing can differ depending on how demanding the motor’s operating environment is, so it's worth checking your motor’s rating plate or speaking to your supplier to be safe."
