Question about Tools & Hardware - Others
I have a problem with this hoist, I am fixing it for a friend. Unfortunately the Forward/Reverse switch was already disconnected, before I got into it, the switch is a Mom-Off-Mom DPDT switch. The motor has only three wires going into it, which control the forward, reverse and electric brake functions. There is also a large 70uf electrolytic capacitor, which was disconnected. Any info on the motor would be a great help (110vac-60hz). I have reverse engineered a partial wiring diagram, but it's not much help, without knowing how to wire the motor. My email is email@example.com Thanks in advance.

Before removing the motor I would check for sure that you are getting power to the motor...if so then the motor is gone...there could be an internal overload that went out on it....
Check your yellow pages for a motor repair shop, many times they can fix the motor for a few bucks and they will give you an estimate before you okay the repair.

There is more to the unit than just capacitor. The unit puts a capacitor between one of the lines and the third leg of the three phase motor. There is a voltage sensing relay that senses a certain voltage and when that is reached on the third leg, the capacitor is disconnected by a larger relay controlled by the voltage sensing relay. Note that the available HP will be about 60% of the rated HP when run on true three phase power.
