FORT WAYNE, Ind. - GE ECM by Regal-Beloit has announced the publication of a Spanish translation of its newECM Service Guide, a free diagnostic-service booklet developed specifically for use with GE ECM variable-speed blower motors used in HVAC applications.

“Throughout the U.S., a significant number of HVAC technicians speak Spanish as their primary language. The Spanish translation of our newECM Service Guidemakes sure that this important demographic has access to training and service resources,” said Paul Selking, ECM Residential Industry leader. “TheECM Guía De Serviciouses easy-to-understand instructions and diagrams to provide technicians from all experience levels with the information they need to be successful in the field and save homeowners the cost of unnecessary repairs.”

Company data show that the number one defect discovered in a returned ECM is “no problem found,” meaning users were replacing the motor to solve problems that lie in the HVAC system itself, rather than the motor. The booklet is designed to be an easy-to-use resource that shows service technicians how to properly diagnose and service residential ECM-driven systems, including: general troubleshooting safety tips, a motor identification chart, a guide for using the one-button TECMate Pro diagnostic tool, and instructions for replacing the ECM control module.

ECM Guía De Servicioprovides a comprehensive guide for working with all premium ThinkTank ECM and standard X13 ECM products. The guide can be ordered from the company’s Website,, and is also available to registered Website users as a free PDF download.
