If you have a 220 v service 1 phase meanig there is 220 volts across your existing two power feeds and your motor only has 3 wires there is usually a low voltage and high voltage schematic on the motor if you are wired as per this then your green is standard ground and black and white are your hot wire or line voltage let me know if you have any other questions

Need a diaghram on how to wire a 220v air compressor pressure switch


You should have 3 wires coming from the pigtail. White,red and black. Depending on the application you may have a green wire too, the red and black are the hot wires that supply 220. Since you did not post the type or model of switch, it is hard to tell but red goes to one side of the switch and the black wire goes to the other terminal ON THE SAME SIDE. The other side of the switch goes to the motor. The white connects to a lug on the frame, if green is present it would connect with the white.

Can i plug a 110 air conditioners into a 220 plug in


Hi Shawn:
A 110 air conditioner would only use 1/2 of the available 220, so , the answer is yes, with a great BIG CAUTION!!!!!
You have to know how to safely wire in the appropriate plug.
- 220 usually will have 4 wires: Red, Black, White, and Green.
You get 220 between the red and black, the White is available for 110 to drive a fan or whatever.
- 220 sometimes only has 3 wires: Red, Black, and green
Here you have 220 with no 110, like a baseboard heater.
- 110 has 3 wires: RED OR BLACK, White, and Green.
You get 110 between the Red or Black and the white.
The White is called Neutral.
Do not use the green wire as a neutral if there is no white.
The green wire is a ground and is for safety purposes.

PLEASE!!!! If this is not perfectly clear and within your ability, DO NOT TRY TO WIRE IT! Get someone who is trade certified to help you. Also, don't even think about messing with the wiring unless the circuit breaker is turned off..

How to wire capacitors on a 26 gal. model 671049 air compressor?


Well, got to local hardware store, pick up 12/3 soow/soo wire, new plug, LOTS of electrical tape (lol one rollwould work 3M type 88 is best), 3 12ga wire nuts. splice in the wire( white-white, black-black, green-green) near the motor. Cover the spliced area with enough tape to well cover the splice area; more than just one layer of tape (do not be afraid to pull on tape; it holds better when tape is pulled and stretched). Connect the plug; white to silver, black to gold/brass, green to grounding lug/green. place a slight loop (4-6" dia) with spiced area opposite of where cable passes its self. either tape and/or zip-tie so no strain is placed on the splice. At this point compressor should be working.

Century motor wiring diagram for 8-152863-01 motor


You can\'t run it on 220, but if you take only one of the 220 black wires and attach it to the black on the compressor you are feeding it 110. The problem will be that you have no neutral wire so you\'d have to use the ground of the 220 lead (green) as the neutral on the compressor (white). It\'ll run fine but it\'s not the right way and it can be a hazard. The white wire is neutral which is basically a ground wire from the electric company, the green is the ground wire in your building and it\'s there for safety so using it to power things is dangerous and probably illegal. I\'ve done it in a pinch, but wouldn\'t do it if at all avoidable. You may be able to get a transformer but you\'re probably better off running a 110 circuit or getting a 220 compressor.

the new ge fan requires its own capacitor, the brown and the brown/white go direct to new fan capacitor. black to relay (leg one of power) purple to relay (leg two of power. the compressor will have a wire to the relay and the other to the herm terminal. you now will have nothing to the original capacitor fan terminal.
The new motor will have the diagram showing this. you need the capacitor that goes with the new motor. the grainger guy should have sold that to you with the motor.

I have a marathon 3hp motor wired for 220 on a campbell hausfield air compressor. It has a white, black, and green wire coming out of the motor. I am using a no. 12 wire with ground. how do i wire it up to...


Hi! sims146
The Green wire from the electric motor is ground. Check the compressor motor, make sure it is wired for 220-230 Volts. If it has a white wire it could be wired 120 Volts. There should be voltage and current ratings on the motor plate. I always double check these connections. At 230 Volts this motor should be 17 Amps full Load. A 25-30 amp fuses are required to protect this motor circuit. Otherwise up to a 42.5 Amp Inverse Time Delay Breaker could be used.
The welder circuit should have 230 Volts between the Red and Black wires. The white wire is Nutral / Ground. Hopefully this is a 30 to 40 Amp circuit. The Four prong air compressor outlet, White is Neutral, Black and Red 230 Volts, Gray should be ground. Please check with Voltmeter, as some times people swap colors.

The compressor is 3HP 230 v motor. In the pressure switch it is wired white and black from motor and green to ground. Is the white and black wire 115 volt each or it the white wire common and black wire...


If the motor is 230 v then it should have three wires, black, red, and green, however if the motor is convertible from 120 to 230v then the wire from the motor may be black, white, and green. Check the motors label to see if it has different wiring configurations. If the motor is 230 v only then the white wire would be the other side of the 230 v circuit, and the pressure switch should break both sides. Neutral is not used. Note that some people would use a single pole pressure switch, although this will work it is not recommended.

First are you sure your compressor is wired for 220. If so \,use the white and black for the hots connected to the black and red in your recptacle. Connect the green to green or bare conductor. The compressor most likely has no 120V devices on it so the neutral is not requied.

I just bought a new ingersollrand compressor its a 80 gal 5 hp 220v i need help wiring it


This is simple it is a 220 volt machine so you would need 2 hot wires one red and one black each one is 110 volts now you have a green wire that in the grown wire and then the white wire with is the neutral wire. So black to black, red to red, green to green and white to white./

Wiring compressor


The two terminal cap is only for the new fan motor. Connect the compressor wire back where you found it, on the 3 terminal cap. It's the terminal marked, "herm". The "common" terminal on the 3 terminal cap must still be connected to one side of the 220 power at the contactor. One side of the 220 goes to the common on the compressor. The other side of the 220 goes to the run winding on the compressor AND the common terminal on the 3 terminal capacitor.
