If that is a 240V unit then you are correct wiring L1 and L2 to black and red. Unless the unit uses 120V for something like a control panel, it doesn't need the neutral.

Red wire is not needed. Be certain 208 volts is read across black and white. Cap off the red.

Look at the name plate on the motor. If it's 'duel voltage' it will show a 'high' and 'low' voltage hook up. If it only shows one hook up config, then use the rated voltage on the name plate. If 240 volts, use L1 and L2 for incoming power @ 240volts.

I have a Dayton 1hp electrical motor model no. 6K2328 i want to change it to 230 volts, how do i wire it?


Seriously, if you need to ask, it might be better left to an electrician. Alternatively, the manufacturer should be able to provide guidance. Be sure to lock out the breaker during your efforts!

Replaced a ge condensor fan 3 wire with new dayton the wires are different...old fan has a wire connectort mouted to it orange,black yellow, the new one 2brown 1 with white stripe, purple, black, i have...


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.

What the codes


You want delay fuse instead of fast-acting fuse. Look for delay on product description.
Since the motor has a high amp draw when first starting, then that means surge of heat traveling over wire.
Fuse trips when sensing heat.
Delay fuse will accept high heat for longer period of time before tripping.

You have 1 Hp 6K321 motor from WW Grainger. You can contact grainger.
http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/DAYTON-General-Purpose-Motor-6K321?Pid=search

I recommend that you use 12 gauge wire and 20 amp fuse. Over-sizing wire will save heat loss and prevent damage to motor, and heat damage fuse box.

If you use smaller 14 gauge wire and 15 amp fuse, the motor will heat the wire, especially if length of wire is longer than 100 feet from fuse.
The motor has thermal protection, so motor is not overheating.
The wire is overheating.

Have craftsman 1hp motor with two capacitors,


you posted this under dryer problems , but i give it a shot. Maby your compressor is out of oil or rings worn out and its to tight to turn under pressure. Or your not getting the voltage or amps you need. You cant run on a extension cord or at least a cheep cord. Your plug is or outlet is burnt not tranphering volts and amps.

1hp Water Ace dual jet water pump hums, doesn't pump


DOES YOUR NEW MOTOR HAVE A START CAPACITOR BUILT INSIDE OF IT TO HELP IT START. OR DOES IT REQUIRE A CAPCITOR START / RELAY BOX ABOVEGROUND. ALSO IF YOUR OLD MOTOR WAS 220V AND THE NEW ONE IS 115V YOU HAVE 2 HOT WIRES AND NO NEUTRAL. THE NEW MOTOR REQUIRES 1 HOT AND 1 NEUTRAL. HOPE THIS HELPS, JODY

Dayton Motor and capacitors for Carrier AC Unit (model # 38ck030300)


The 2 brown wires to the cap in first legend is how they are wired electrically,inside that motor the run winding is common to that brown one they cappped off in the 2nd option, but the powers still going to Run.ommon and run get the juice either way, its just another way to do it, but electrically as to sides of power and where they go is no different, just different way to do it.you can run power in on the Run terminal on the run cap, the run winding and run cap and start cap if equipped are Run to Run to Run.So the hot leg for the run winding also goes to run on the caps, run to run to run.,run winding to run cap to run on start cap.
