I have a 1 1/2 hp 230/110 marathon single phase motor controlled by forward reversing starters with 24 volt controlled. How do I wire this motor up for for/rev ???


You need to determine at which voltage you will run this motor. A motor starter mechanically and electrically interlocked for F & R. with 24v transformer, a SS and FR station. This is expensive but sweet, needs room for this equipment.
The easy budget is by using a drum switch.
The motor nameplate or splice box cover will hand the info on how to connect the motor for either voltage and for CW and CCW rotation.
The magnetic motor starter also will include a wiring diagram.

Replacement fan motor for weather king 14AJA36AO1 condensing unit


You dont need all that data , most motors are belly band type 5" motors, the direction of rotation, hp, speeds, etc are whats material to you.you dont have to get that exact motor unless you wish , Any similarly sized, or larger hp motor will work,(never less hp though) GE makes universal replacement "tripsavers" that have a shaft you may cut if required, and reversible rotation, either CW lead end or CCW lead end, (leads being wires, not the shaft end)Unless you have a OEM specific design as in tabs mounted to the motor, you dont need the exact make, just parameters of equal or greater power and similar or reversible settings specifically. Just take that motor into a electric motor shop, sometimes will be called "X" armature, etc or a appliance parts house, Standard appliance, Jonstone supply, Graingers, Burke engineering, etc.I like GE replacement motors with poller bearings, rather than the Emerson needle bearings, or similar lesser quality motors.

AO Smith SQ1102 pump motor: how do I wire this thing? How do I know if I set it to 115 or 230? I justed popped my 20 amp fuse.


On your motor name plate there is a diagram with motor terminal numbers that shows you the feeder wires connections for 115 & 230VAC. You don't need to change any internal motor wiring connections because those are only CW or CCW motor rotation. As you told it tripped your circuit breaker, b4 u will attemp to make any connection you need to test your motor's winding insulation insulation first by using megger tester or ordinary analog tester clipping one lead to the casing and one lead to the motor terminals one by one.

Runs ccw needs to run cw hp 5 460 v hz60 wired motor for high volts last 3 wires are orange that went to no.2fc yellow went to no.3 black wire went to no.1


Look you are putting to much thought in to this. To reverse the direction of a 460 volt motor simply swap two of your power feed leads. You know the L1, L2, and L3 simply change L1 with L2 and your direction will change, calm down and do not over think this.
