English term or phrase: squeeze
Unter den möglichen Ursachen für einen defekten Stator wird folgendes angegeben:

High temperature, the stator squeezed

Der Stator klemmt? Wegen Überhitzung?

Kann ja alles sein, aber in diesem Fall fehlt mir das Fachwissen, um sicher zu sein.

Vielen Dank an die hilfreichen KollegInnen!

Ich denke nicht, dass der Stator klemmt, der läuft ja gar nicht um. Wenn dann klemmt der Läufer, weil der Stator sich auf Grund von zu viel Hitze ausgedehnt hat.

Again, not exactly over-confident, but I suspect a mishearing here for "seized". "Squeeze" is hardly the sort of thing a stator would do at all, at all... And unlike Thomas, I have no reason to suppose a stator couldn't seize because of overheating.
