DONT KNOW WHAT KIND OF MOTOR THIS IS BUT : IF THE MOTOR SAYS 115/230 VOLT AC ON THE INFO TAG AND IT HAS A LOW/ HIGH WIRING DIAGRAGM THEN YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO CONVERT IT. SOME MOTORS HAVE A SWITCH ON THE FRONT FACE WHERE YOU REMOVE A SCREW AND ROTATE A SHAFT. IF THIS DOESNT HELP GIVE MORE INFO. JODY

Wiring a ge motor 220; has three black wires


That's a 3 phase motor(ph3). And probably a 220v/460v? Or a 110v/220v, BIG difference! You'll need to figure out your supply voltage and wire it accordingly. Normally, if 220/460, all 3 black wires are hot legs, and this is probably what you have, because 110v will normally have higher amperage than what you posted. And if the motor runs backwards, switch any leg with 1 other. Hope this helps!

Jointer doesn't run smoothly


My bet is that the motor is designed for 220/240 (single or three phase), but you're running in on 110 single phase. If the belt were slipping it would sound like the belt on a car (you know when someone starts their car and belt is loose and goes "Sccrreeeeeee" until the rev the engine and make the belt catch up to the pully).

The power in wood working motors is such that it should be very difficult to slow down the motor if you're feeding at a slow rate. But, if the motor needs 220 and you're powering with 110, then the motor will have no power (the magnets in the motor are matched with the voltage - and if you have the wrong voltage you won't get any power and the speed will be very slow).

Typically the "home" or "residential" tools only run on 110, but if you have a larger unit they can be wired for 220 or 110. If you bought the planer used, they may have been running with 220 and now you're powering with 110 (or vice versa). I'd do a quick google search for your unit to see what it's capable of. Or, just take the model number of the motor (not the planer) and search for that.

Typically, motors can be run at 110 or 220 for larger wood working tools. Inside the metal housing where the wire feeds into are a number of wires to connect to. These wires have numbers on them (either a tag or printed on the wire insulation) and you attach them a certain way for 110 and a different way for 220. Sometimes you can even change the direction of the motor - SO BE CAREFULL IF YOU REWIRE IT! don't power it up all the way on the first try. Just start it and then stop it while the motor is still coming up to speed. While the planer is still spinning (even though the motor is off) feed your board in slowly and you'll be able to tell which way the motor is spinning. If you get the wrong direction on your motor you can shoot boards across the shop (or out into the street if you're in the garage - like I did).

There are electric motors that run on ether 110 or 220 but wire must be changed on the motor to change from one to the other. Look on the side or end of the motor housing for a identification sicker or plate it well have the information that well tell you which it is or if it can be either.
Now for the bad news if it was sit up for 110 or if it is only 110 the motor is most likely fried.

Where can i find a new motor for a protech 4106 table saw


If you still have the old motor, use the info off of the motor label that describes the mounting configuration (this is the frame type). Do a google search for "Electric Motor NEMA Frame Sizes" for a good list of them. If your label is unreadable (or missing) search for the owners manual for your tablesaw - they usually have the specific motor model number.

The motor frame type is all you really need for making sure it will fit your saw - however, if the old motor was a 1 hp, and you install a 5 hp - you may have problems with the size of the motor hitting the table saw.

Also, decide if you want 110 or 220 volts. In general 220 is more effecient (3 phase is much more effecient). But I bet you'll want to stick with the original horsepower and voltage.

Then, do a google search for your motor. The frame for my motor is J56HC, it's a 3 hp and I use 220 volts - so my search is usually just "electric motor frame J56HC", but if I find too much garbage, then I search "electric motor frame J56HC 220 volts 3 hp". Once you find a motor model number (the motor I liked was a leeson 115048) then search for that. I found a great deal on ebay searching for this.

I am installing a new pump and motor. the motor is 110/220 optional. I am 220. The connectors are A, B, L1 and L2. What goes where for 220. Thanks


There is always a wiring diagram on the side of the motor. If you want help with this one still, you would have to list here the exact model of pump, and the model of the motor connected to it.
Most common connections are to run one hot line to L1 and one hot line to L2.
You would want to confirm this on the motor housing though as some motors are different than others.

Runs 1 minute, gets hot and shuts off help!!??


Need a bit more information.

Are you saying that you have set it up for 220V or that you are running it on 220V?

Many motors can run on either 120 or 220, but you must check the leads and make sure they are jumpered correctly.

Are you running on 220 or 120?
Are there leads with numbers in the connection box that have wire nut or jumpers on them?
