    They have discovered failed insulation and shorting where wires go into main motor under a cover so at least a real fault has been identified.
    It sounds like the motor might need taking for repairs...

    Re: 3 phase : rotation of motor.

    I think it's only rated at one horsepower and the 3 phase fitted does look surprisingly small, I think it is primarily driving a hydraulic pump.
