Question about Dryers
Hi, I have a sunbeam Fan model M616ADR the board burnt and i couldn't find a new board, so i tried to bypass the board and connect direct to the motor on the red wire(high speed)and either the black or grey but the fan turns counter clockwise sucking air from front to back, so the question is how to make the motor turns to other direction knowing it's an AC motor not a DC motor, which color of two wires to supply 240 volts to make it turns clockwise not counter clockwise. Thank you in advance Best regards Mike

You almost have it Look closer at the run capacitor. It has Herm, this is for the compressor, Com or C and F or Fan.
1 of your power wires is the fan speed so connect them accordingly usually black is hi, blue med, & red is low. You are "feeding" voltage to the selector switch on 1 side and coming out to the fan motor speeds.
Next you have a "Common" wire on your fan motor (this means its Common to all the other connections inside the fan motor to me. It is usually white. Connect this to the other line of power usually the Com on the capacitor unless it connects to a strip on the selector switch. But 1 of these 2 places will be the other side of your Power when plugged in. Lastly the brown it is usually the fan capicator only wire and it will connect to the fan "F" terminal on the capicator this terminal will not have any other wires connected to it.
This should make you a happy camper. Please rate me accordingly and good luck.

Does your new motor have two sets of short wires with connectors in the middle of them? If so then it is reversible and the instructions for doing so are printed on the motor data plate on the side of the motor.If it does not have these wires then reverse the polarity of the two power leads as they come off the top of the contactor, that should fix your problem.
