In Siemens drives, the F015 fault code indicates a motor blocked condition. This means the motor is unable to rotate freely, preventing the drive from achieving the desired speed. Here's a breakdown of the F015 fault, its causes, and troubleshooting steps:

Possible Causes of F015 Fault:

  • Mechanical Overload: The most common cause is an excessive mechanical load on the motor shaft. This could be due to factors like:
  • Seized bearings in the motor or driven machinery.
  • Increased friction in the mechanical system.
  • Jamming of the driven equipment.
  • Incorrect Drive Settings: Inappropriate settings for parameters like acceleration time or torque limit in the drive can contribute to the motor stalling.
  • Current Sense Issues: Problems with the current sensing circuit within the drive might lead to a false F015 fault detection.
  • Hardware Faults (less likely): In rare cases, a hardware malfunction within the drive itself could be responsible for the fault.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Safety First: Ensure the system is completely powered down and locked out before attempting any troubleshooting procedures.
  2. Check for Mechanical Issues:
  • Manually Rotate Motor Shaft (if possible): If possible, try to manually rotate the motor shaft by hand. If it's difficult to turn, it suggests a mechanical overload issue that needs to be addressed (e.g., freeing jammed equipment, lubricating bearings).
  1. Review Drive Settings: Refer to the manual for your specific Siemens drive model. It will provide details on parameters related to motor control (acceleration, torque limit) and how to adjust them if necessary.
