You have to reverse the coil (body) from the armature (center). Remove screws of your motor, armature is the center of the motor that rotates. Body is the part that has copper winding in the middle. Reverse this body and screw it back again. Try this and you will find that the armature rotates opposite the way you had it before.

How to reverse rotation of single phase, 1/2 HP, 110V electric motor.


Changing the "polarity" of the start winding by swapping the wires over should reverse the direction. Lots of online motor-related generic and manufacturer information is available.

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.

Replace compacitor on Carrier 5 ton 3 phase AC


Your 3 phase unit should not have a capacitor. I'm guessing it's single phase. If it's a single capacitor than the compressor should not be going to it also. To test the motor, common to start plus common to run should equal the ohms you get between start and run. For instance, 1.2 ohms+ 2.2 ohms= 3.4 ohms. Follow the wiring diagram on the inside of the door, send model number!!

How do I reverse the rotation of a WL330002AJ dual capacitor ac single phase compressor motor made by campbell hausfeld


Chpower motors will only run in one direction, the primary use for this motor is chpower pump. However the motor can be useful for other purpose but you must be creative. What were you going to use the motor for?

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


theres a three wire on it,1 in line1 this connected in one lead terminals of capacitor and 2 starting the other lead terminal of cap.,3 lead running,just change the connection of lead line capacitor to lead running wire,make vise versaand it will change the rotation

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 want to reverse rotation on my A.O. Smith 120/230 volt single phase 1.5 HP motor. Catalog number B762


I believe all you have to do is swap your two hot wires,that works for 3-phase but not sure on single phase

Too change rotation of a 5hp 230 volt


HAVE A LOOK INSIDE THE MOTOR CONNECTION BOX. SOMETIMES ON THE LID ARE INSTRUCTIONS OF HOW TO DO THIS. YOU DID NOT SAY IF THIS WAS A CAPACITOR START UNIT OR NOT. IF THERE IS A CAPACITOR ON THERE IT COULD BE NO GOOD WHICH WILL MAKE THE MOTOR GO WHERE IT WANTS. A GOOD CAPACITOR KICKS IT IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION ON SWITCH ON.

How do I wire a 30amp 3phase 250 volt receptacle for proper phase rotation ie x,y,z on the device with phases a,b,c in the panel?


You will either need a phase rotation meter to identify the rotation, or, if it is a motor, reverse any two leads to spin the motor the opposite direction (this works on single phase, too).

i hope this is helpful
