SOURCE: wiring diagram

The white wire is nuetral, if you are trying to make a shop fan or something like that then you hook it to the white wire which goes to the wide spade on the outlet. The black one which is the hot and goes to the smaller blade (looking at an outlet in the U.S. on the right hand side) on the plug and should be for one speed operation. The other three should be capped off if you use it this way. If not, then cap off the black on on the motor and run the hot wire on the plug through a three stage switch. To find what speed corresponds to what wire you have to check resistance to the white wire and the lower the resistance, the higher the speed and hook up to switch accordingly. Also, ground the case with a solderless ring connector under a mounting screw attached to the ground prong on plug. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Motor has started t0 smoke and trips circuit breaker

On the motors I deal with there is a series of numbers that identify the shaft size, hp and all other requirements. I would try and contact a local Grainger and see if they can help, if not try in the yellow pages for a motor repair shop in your area and sometimes they can get you one. Good luck

SOURCE: I wish to rewire a single phase electric motor

The motor itself should have a sticker which describes the wiring for 115. It is a small change involving a single wire moving from one pole to another inside the motor starter cap (the bump on the motor itself).

You didn't give a model,here's a manual on their motors and the wiring diagrams,they start on page 2-9.It should get you there,or you can check out their other manuals on the same page .Take care!

The higher the voltage the lower the amperage, so advantage is its more cost effective to run it at highe voltages since power consumption is I squared x Resistance. The resistance will be the same but the lower the current the less it cost to run it.

There may be a wiring diagram either on the body of the motor or inside the wiring terminal cover.

I have a 2hp compressor motor that keeps tripping the breaker after about 5 minutes of use. i have changed the caps but it keeps popping the starter cap. is the motor just bad?


Our 2 HP Speedaire horizontal tank compressor is rated 115 / 230 volts at 24 / 12 amps, respectively. This means at 115 volts, a 30 amp circuit breaker is the bare minimum. That also means that the wiring should be #10 copper wires for short runs, but the next size up; #8 copper wires would be better connected to a 40 amp circuit breaker. Running at 230 drops the amperage requirement by half, to 12. A #14 copper wire is minimum for short runs with a double pole 15 amp circuit breaker, but #12 copper wires connected to a double pole 20 amp circuit breaker would be better choice.

If the compressor is cord connected (or even directly wired) with the minimum sized wires, it will likely a voltage drop problem unless very close to the panel. This problem is more pronounced as the distance between the circuit breaker and motor increases, or when smaller wires are in the circuit. All the voltage at the circuit breaker does not reach the motor, as it is lost as heat; so the compressor only sees 90 to 105 volts instead of the 115 volts it expects.

If the cords, connections, etc are getting hot, it is a tell tale sign of under-sized wires and /or poor connections. Once you solve these problems, the compressor should run "as advertised " because motors usually don't "go bad" but fail all at once. Unless you have a bearing problem - or there is a problem with the load itself (compressor).

I hope this helped.

Rewiring mootor from 230v down to 115v


Diagram for aosmith motor b381 is here: http://www.electricmotorwarehouse.com/IMAGES/B381_connection.htm

However, I believe that this motor will be more efficient at 230v depending on load conditions. At 115v this motor will draw more amps and tend to run hot, but situation rules. Enjoy
