If you're main power is 115v and the capacitor is rated 220v it could work. But if the other way around the capacitor would melt or blown if use.

Is it possible to wire compressor motor from sears model 106 174541 to 220v and if so schematic if possible just for motor

If the electric motor says 120/240 then yes. It it only says 120 on the data plate then no. I have attached a good read for you. Should you change your motor from 120V to 240V

On a Sears Craftsman 20 gal air compressor model # 921.166430 I need the start up capacitor. Where can I get one?

Capacitors are generic components. They are not made for a specific compressor, like a mechanical part. You need the voltage rating and the capacitance. The capacitance will be a number like 5uF or 10uF (uF = microfarads). Then you can go to an electronic supplier that handles small orders, like Digikey, and get a replacement. I have seen them on Amazon as well. I got mine on ebay. Just make sure it will meet or exceed the AC voltage rating. Some capacitors are made to only handle DC, like electrolytic capacitors. They have a + & - marking. These will explode if you try to use them. On the replacement, you can exceed the voltage rating, but the capacitance needs to match pretty closely since it is tuned to the motor's starter winding to create the correct phase shift to start. If the phase shift is off too much, you won't have enough torque to start up.

Good morning, I bought a dryer from Sears, model 11068002010, but I took it to Morocco. So I need to know how to connect it. In Morocco we have 220V electricitu power. Cood you please send me the...

Most dryers manufactured in the US are rated for 120v ac and will not operate on 220v ac.
You may want to look into the possibility of getting a 220v to 120v step down transformer.

Mdl.919.165250need to change wiring from 110v to220vshow wiring diagram for compresor

Your compressor was made by Porter Cable for Sears. The motor / pump is used on many different compressor models depending on tank size and style options. None of the models /including yours/ were ever designed for 115/220v. I did happen to see a compressor that was built for european destination that was 220v. It was easy to identify because it had a two round prong male plug (it could not be wired for 115v however). Good Luck

I have a brand new IR compressor model 2475N7.5 with a 7.5 hp 460v 3 ph motor. is it possible to convert it to a single phase power supply? or should i just exchange it? ... I ordered it thru Northern Tool...

When you google home made 3 phase converters, you will find many ways to make use of 220v single phase instead, however you are limited as to the hp that the motor will produce. If you spin the motor first then apply 220v, the motor will continue to turn at much reduced hp. You need full power to turn a type 30 pump depending on pulley combination/ setup. Best to return the unit and get one that will run on 220v single phase. It will most likely consume more power to do the same work however it would cost a great deal to install 3 phase. Most likely not even available at all. Many years ago, I worked at Sears and happened to see an electrician coming down from roof access of building. He told me that sears had a 3 phase generator being turned by a 220v single phase motor to run an air conditioning unit. He said that it worked quite well. Does not sound cost effective.

I am trying to locate an owners manual for a sears compressor

I can help you. The motor name plate will give you the connections for the different voltage if it is a 'dual voltage' motor. Check the name plate on the motor.
May I ask why you want to change it. Contrary to popular belief, It won't make it cheaper to run.

Cooling problem with my ac.

The start capacitor may be the problem. Is your AC a central unit or window unit? Whats the model and make? If a window unit it could also be the thermostat is defective or too close to evaporator fins. Dirt on the condenser outside can cause the motor to heat up to the point it shuts down to cool the internal overload. Let me Know, Sea Breeze

No cool air

It is the capacitor write down the wiring colors to the capacitor and then disconnect the safety disconnect on side of house. And even turn off the breaker to the condensing unit. Okay now that no power is going to the unit take out the capacitor you wrote down what wires went where and ohm out the herm side go from the center post to herm side. Should be bad wont get a reading. Get new capacitor and re install. good luck ken

If not capacitor get back to me. And please leave good feed back

you aren't an ac tech number one but i shall overlook that . your question is llike will the sun come up in the north or the south tomorrow. obviously in the east as it has since the earth was created. anyway. all compressors since the beginning of time wire up the same .a wire commonly referred to as the common goes from the contactor to the compressor. usually black in color, hence the old coloqualism Blacks are common. the run wire is from the contactor to the run side of the run capacitor or from the contactor to the run connection on the compressor. hence the old slogan reds run when you point a gun at them. the only wire left is the start wire that come from the start capacitor and is usually yellow . hence the old saying blacks are common, reds run, and yellows are always starting something. very ethnic i know but thats how i was that the wirings correct check to see volts through contactor are correct and if one side of contactor is not feeding. if volts good then check capacitors with a cap checker. if all else looks good kill power and inspect compressor terminals at compressor. if burned off consider a termilock kit good luck..

GE Refrigerator Compressor Inop.

I found this post by searching on the capacitor number, JSU21X126AQC. My 2001 Kenmore refrigerator (don't have model# here) compressor didn't run, but I heard it hum for a few seconds and then a click. That's the Klixon overload doing its job. I measured resistance of the compressor leads same as original poster. This lead me to determine that the windings were not open or shorted. The wiring to the compressor also fed the condenser fan, and it was running, so power was at least all the way to the compressor.
What I did find was that the 12uF capacitor was only 4uF. My digital volt meter has a capacitor check range. This compressor circuit is a permanent split capacitor type. Without the proper capacitance, the compressor can't start. I replaced it with a 10uF, 220v AC capacitor I had, and now it runs fine. I wonder how many refrigerators are scrapped because of this inexpensive problem?
