SOURCE: wiring diagram for electricmotor with capacitor

I do not have a diagram for you, but depending on the motor, I can tell you a couple of things. 1. All capacitors are wired in series with the start winding. Most multi-speed motors, that require capacitors, have two brown leads, along with the motor winding leads. If this is the scenario, then just connect line power to neutral and the speed you wish to use, and connect the two brown leads, one to each side of the capacitor. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: wiring diagram for electricmotor with capacitor

On most motors the wires with the tabs are connected to the capacitor (usually brown). White wire is neutral and color wires are speeds.

How do i wire a 2hp 1ph. motor that is 115/230 volt to run on 230 volt?


Did you check under the connection plate for a wiring diagram? If it is single phase it will only have three wires to it, but 4 connections. There will be a common ground wire, a common neutral wire and then with the live wire you have the choice of putting it on the 110 connector or the 230 connector.

Changing the "polarity" of the start winding by swapping the wires over should reverse the direction. Lots of online motor-related generic and manufacturer information is available.

Wiring schematic for MTB217 cooper b line


I would suggest taking a closer look at the motor name plate. I am not familiar with a 120/240 three phase service. When I checked the web it shows: Voltage 115/230 (that is single phase), Max Amps 115 Volts = 19.2 Max Amps 230 Volts = 9.6 , Single Speed, Square Flange, RPM = 3450, Threaded Shaft, Frame = 48Y Used on the following models: Sta-Rite Max-E-Glas, Max-E-Glas II, Dura-Glas, Dura-Glas II, Dyna-Glas, Dyna-Max Pentair Whisperflow, Pinnacle and Anthony AR2 Series. You should also show what voltage you are connected to.

I need to wire up a baldor 3 phase motor 208-230/480 15hp and dont have the wiring diagram to know what wire is what or where to hook it to?


Hi Casey, I'm an electrician and can help you with this problem.

First, a disclaimer. Without the catalog number of the motor you have, or a wiring diagram for it, no one can tell you how to wire this motor with any certainty. With that said...

Nearly all single speed 3 phase motors have 9 leads (numbered 1 thru 9) and can be wired for either "high" or "low" voltage. Most of the time, high is 480 volts and low is 208/240 volts. Given that you posted the amperage as "41-38 / 19", I am 99% confident that 41 amps is at 208 volts, 38 amps is at 240 volts and 19 amps is 480 volts. Further below is the way to wire unless the motor manufacturer or name plate indicates differently. You will need to determine the voltage of the appliance this is going to be installed into. You should be able to find this on a name plate of the appliance - but it may provide a dual voltage spec here, too. If this is the case, you will need to *carefully* measure the voltage with a meter, or find out the voltage of the electric panel that feeds the appliance.

Once you have learned the incoming voltage, you will connect the motor as such when L1, L2 and L3 are the line voltage supply wires and wires 1 thru 9 match the numbers on the nine wires from the motor.

208/240 or "Low" volts:
Motor leads 4, 5 & 6 connected together and wirenut.
Motor leads 1 & 7 to L1 and wirenut.;
Motor leads 2 & 8 to L2 and and wirenut and lastly,
Motor leads 3 & 9 to L3 and wirenut.

480 or "High" volts:
Motor lead 1 to L1 and wirenut,
Motor lead 2 to L2 and wirenut,
Motor lead 3 to L3 and wirenut,
Motor leads 4 to 7 and wirenut,
Motor leads 5 to 8 and wirenut and lastly,
Motor leads 6 to 9 and wirenut.

The motor should be operated briefly or "jogged" to determine the direction the motor turns. If the motor rotation needs to be changed, simply swap any two "L" wires (swap L1 and L2, or L1 and L3, or L2 and L3). Test once more to verify rotation and when correct close the wiring compartment and complete the installation. Swapping the L wires will likely be much quicker and easier to do at the magnetic contactor instead of the the motor's wiring compartment. Either location is acceptable.

You should try to obtain the name plate data for this motor - if at all possible to to make sure of the voltage and wiring method. I hope this helps & good luck!

What happen with a wrong connection on a single phase 2hp sp motor


I'm not sure which motor you have - the heading shows a 1HP type - yet you talk about a 2HP type. Anyway, the label on the motor should have a wiring diagram. You must have a label on the motor to know how to wire. It may have two diagrams - one designated as "high voltage" and the other "low voltage". Check the label for voltage.. it likely says "120/240 volts". The 120 uses the low volts diagram and the 240 uses the high volt diagram. If the motor has terminals L1 and L2, these will most likely be the point of connection for power - regardless if it 120 or 240, unless the label states otherwise. Unless the neutral connection is specified on the label, it does not matter which L1 or L2 you connect it to.

The other terminals will be required to be connected properly. Motors use these connections or jumpers to set options such as voltage, direction of rotation, speed(s), etc. An incorrect setting here can cause unexpected results as far as speed and rotation, or catastrophic results if you supply this motor with 240 volts but set the jumper for 120 volts.

Here's a link to their catalog with telephone numbers for you to review.

Good luck!

I have Delco Model 2J2424r1, frame 56R, Series A84, phase 3 electric motor. What is the wiring diagram to run it under 230VAC?


If it has 9 leads and is a 240/480 volt motor the 1and 7 go to line 1. the 2 and 8 leads go to line 2 and the 3 and 9 leads go to line 3. the 4 5 and 6 leads are hooked together with a wire nut. To reverse rotation simply reverse any 2 of the line leads.. Prairie Dog........

there is no motor that is single phase with 415 volts only 240 volt or 120volt and you cannot use a 3 phase motor on single phase it will just fail to start buzz and burn it up .single phase motors have capacitors 3 phase motors do not

You cannot wire a three phase motor for single phase and you cannot wire a single phase motor for three phase. If you have a three phase dual voltage motor your options are 220 or 440 volts. If you have a single phase dual voltage motor your options are 120 or 240 volts. A 208 volt Hobart motor will only function correctly on 208 volts and is not dual voltage.
