Why does condenser have a dual capacitor and a single capacitor in the same unit?


Hard to say exactly, but most heavy duty electric motors have a start capacitor as well as a run capacitor. There may also be an overload protector you are confusing with a condensor.

How to Reverse the Rotation of Single Phase Capacitor-Start Electric Motors


Reversing the rotation of electric motors can be done easily with 3-phase motors. This can be easily achieved by swapping the connection of any two motor leads. But 3-phase motors are usually found and used for industrial purposes. The ones found and used in our homes, from water pumps to electric fans, are single phase capacitor-start type motors. Unlike 3-phase motors, reversing the rotation of single phase electric motors is no easy task. Swapping any two motor leads will not result in the reversal of the motor rotation. Analysis of the motor windings and connections are necessary before any modification can be done to achieve the desired result. Let's take a 3-speed single phase capacitor-start electric motor with electrical diagram shown below as an example. Make sure the motor is disconnected from the power supply before attempting to follow this tip. This tip is intended only for individuals with electrical knowledge, necessary tools, and understand the risks associated with handling electrical equipments and devices.

The first step in the process is determining the start winding which is connected to the line (AC white) and to one side of the start capacitor. To accurately determine the start winding, disconnect all motor leads from the start capacitor and the speed switch for multi-speed motors and then setting your ohmmeter to the lowest scale (R x 1), measure the resistances between the AC white line and each of the motor leads connecting to the start capacitor. The one with the least resistance is the starting winding lead.

Once the start winding lead going to the capacitor is determined, reconnect the capacitor then connect the black AC line to the found start winding lead (marked X). Connect the white AC line to L of speed switch, the motor lead formerly connected to AC white to 3, red to 2, and white to 1 as shown below. Leave the green/yellow ground wire connection as is.

Hi!3-phase motor wires brn/blue/blk no open cct.P.c.b there are no components burnt out or blown.I removed interlock switch and will buy new one and try again.Belt ok.Pump solenoid valve ok .


Check for a motor start capacitor that is defective. This can happen without external symptoms. Highly unlikely Hotpoint washer has 3-phase motor. Most household loads are single-phase. In North American residences, three-phase power might feed a multiple-unit apartment block, but the household loads are connected only as single phase. In lower-density areas, only a single phase might be used for distribution. Some large European appliances may be powered by three-phase power, such as electric stoves and clothes dryers. Three wires could be for different speed ranges or one could be frame ground.

I have a Ingersoll Rand Compressor model# 2545E10V 10 HP,3 phase and I would like to convert it to a signle phase. would this motor here be good to go with and what other items will be needed to complete...


It might. Mounting holes match? Shaft diameter and adapter match? Power supply sufficient for 5HP motor? It's a big motor! You might get a better answer from the ebay supplier.

Where can i find ac motor connection diagrams, specifically, single phase forward and reverse, and 415v motor to 240v power diagrams? thanks andy


there is no motor that is single phase with 415 volts only 240 volt or 120volt and you cannot use a 3 phase motor on single phase it will just fail to start buzz and burn it up .single phase motors have capacitors 3 phase motors do not

I have a 3 phase electrical motor for my air compressor, How would i connect this from the air compressor pressure switch and towards the electrical source 120V? (for low volt)


If the electrical 120 volt source is single phase, the only way to run this motor is with a single phase to three phase converter. Best to sell the three phase motor and obtain a similar horsepower 120 volt single-phase capacitor-start motor (1750 RPM) for the compressor. You would also require a 3-phase pressure switch for use with the 3-phase motor. Hope this helps!

Wiring diagram for electricmotor with capacitor


I do not have a diagram for you, but depending on the motor, I can tell you a couple of things. 1. All capacitors are wired in series with the start winding. Most multi-speed motors, that require capacitors, have two brown leads, along with the motor winding leads. If this is the scenario, then just connect line power to neutral and the speed you wish to use, and connect the two brown leads, one to each side of the capacitor. Hope this helps.

I bought a new electric motor ml7112 series and


does it have capacitors on the motor (humped covers on top) If not then it may ot be a single phase. also on the motor name plate or on the inside cover of the connector box it should have wiring diaphragm that will tell you how to wire the motor, single phase motor will show 2 line connections and a three phase will show 3 line connections,,, line connections are represented by L-1 L-2 L-3 these mean incoming power.

Need a wiring diagram for 5kcp39fg general electric motor


if it has a brown/purple,and black wires and is a single phase motor, the purple and black are your 2 hot phase wires, and the brown goes to the motor capacitor and on other motor cap term that goes back to the purple phase wire
