Hello stud

The orange wire is for memory retention for the last channel you were on if the red wire loses power as in switched on and off with the car ignition just hook up the orange to a 12 volt source that is on all the time. By the way those are some neat little radios wish I had one.

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.

I have a 220V circuit (1 black wire, 1 white wire, and one green ground wire. The new stark industries pool pump has three terminals plus a ground, There is one terminal for a black wire (terminal A) and...

First, be absolutely sure that your motor is wired for 220v. If it is 110v and you apply 220v the motor will die instantly (after a loud bang). Also verify that your supply is in fact 220v.

Without exception 220v power should be supplied by two wires of the same color, as they are both "hot". Black and white wires are common in 110v wiring, the black being hot and the white neutral.

Every pool pump I have worked on has had two terminals where the wires attach to the motor, L1 and L2, wire orientation does not matter.
Evidently yours only has one. Apparently there is no wiring diagram on the side of the motor either, which is also atypical. Best bet is to call the factory for assistance with this.

How to wire motor sta rite p2ra5e 181L

The green wire is the ground and bolts onto the motor frame on the top part,(should see a green screw). the other two wires go to the two posts with screws to clamp down on the wires. It does not matter which way these two are hooked up, one on each post.

Most motors are pre-wired for 220v from the factory. If you have 220v you're good to go. If you happen to have a 115v setup the motor will run at half speed. The motor can be converted to 115v by moving a brown wire and a white wire in the motor. The diagram is on the motor label.Best to verify your voltage first.

Im hooking my pool pump up to a 220 and I dont know what wires go where. On the motor there is a A and B and a L1 and L2. What do I put my brown wire on and what does the white one go on. Can u help me...

There should be a diagram on the side of the motor showing you where to put the brown and white for 110/220 volt operation. Most new motors of this size are shipped strapped for 220v. The two hot wires will go to L1 and L2 and it doesn't matter which wire goes to which lug. For 220v you will usually have 2 black or 2 red wires and a green ground wire. If it is 110v supply, you will usually have a white and a black wire, and a green for ground. Hope this helps. Since you said you are hooking to 220v the brown and white should be on the correct lugs if this is a new motor.

If this is a new motor you purchased, it should indicate whether it's 110v, or 220v. Also the sticker on the motor should show wiring for 110, and/or 220v. when you remove the cap on the back of the motor it will usually have a little plug, or switch that allows you to change from 110 to 220. Older motors you had remove wire nuts and swap wires. L1 vs L2 don't really matter as long as your voltage is correct if it's 110, then you got 1 hot and 1 neutral. Neutral should be white, and Hot should be black, Red, or possible blue or purple. If you got 220V then you have 2 hot wires and no neutral. If you can't tell the current voltage by looking at the sticker and the wires in the back of the motor, and the documentation that came with it, then you should go back to where you got it and make sure. A local motor shop will also probably check it and tell you for free. Now you mentioned grey and pink wires. If your referring to the wires coming from your supply and not the old motor, then I assume they are white and black (or maybe blue or purple) and are discolored from age and heat. the colors of the wires inside the motor can vary from motor to motor, so you need to follow the sticker on the side.

You have 220v running into your motor, the red and the plack are in most cases the same 110v line and what your calling a white netural is a common line. In other words the second half of your 220v line. If your red and black are the two opposing 110v lines that make up your 220v and they are put on the motor and turned on they short aginst each other and blow the breaker. One of your 220v lines should come into your hi -low switch and then split to your high and low on the pump. The other half of your 220v line will go to the common or what your calling nuteral. The difference is a netural completes a 110v circut and a common completes the 220v circut it will take to run the motor. One of the splits will complete the low speed circut and the other will complete the high speed circut. You need to check your voltage comming into the spa, the way the spa is wired (110v-220v), and how the motor is wired (110v-220v). For your spa this will be in your owners manuel or on a scematic inside a panel or door and is quite often a plug you change from one spot to another. On your motor will have a scematic on the back of the motor that will tell you haw to adjust the wireing already in place on the wire board of the motor. This may sound deep but if all your voltages are set the same and your high and low are the same leg of power, this should fix your problem.

I need a wireing diagram for a king tablesaw model kc10-sc 1 hp

I did some Research and Came up with the King Canada Website, where they Show your Table Saw. You may wish to go to that site, and Click on "Contact Us" and send them a Request for the Proper wiring of Their 220V Motor...Here's the Link for Their Site:
As far as a 220V Motor Wiring goes, 3 Leads works since you have 2 Hot Leads(Black & Red), 1 Neutral Lead(White). as Far as a Capacitor (probably 2 Black wires) goes That should be Pre-Wired into the Motor coming off the Lugs for Your Wiring to...Should NOT be a 2-Stage Motor Connect to, but you may be referring to a Mag-Starter(sounds to me Like someone was trying to do Step-down Voltage)
In all Honesty "IF" I were you, I would do the "Contact Us" @ the Link I Provided, and Let King Tell you How They Have Their Motor Wired for Your Application. Good Luck. Let me Know How you make out.
