SOURCE: this switch to a 1hp sewing machine motot

not you cannot...the switch is not rated to handle the cicuit load, it is only designed to handle the load of a lighting circuit, and you will overload it, and either blow the circuit breaker(or fuse) or worse catch the wires on fire

SOURCE: replaced century 1/6hp fan motor

Hi,

If you only have two leads on that motor then it is not a reversible motor or there is another way to reverse it...

Are there other wires with a plug connecting them on the end of the motor? If so then you reverse the rotation there... sometimes there is a switch in the side of the motor...

If there is none of this then you need to get another motor because the one you have is running the wrong way and will not work...

Check and see if there is a plug with 2 wires coming out of the motor, connected through the plug to two other wires. Reversing the orientation of the plug should change the rotation.

SOURCE: Change rotation

Only if the motor is reversible will you be able to do this. If it is, you will have 4 small wires on the motor that have 1 connection each. They usually have 2 males and 2 females. Depending on how you connect them is what determines the rotation. For example:

CCW- Brown to Purple/ Purple to Brown
CW- Brown to Brown/ Purple to Purple

Hope this helps!

None of the above. You hook your two line leads (the two hot 115 lines) to L1 and L2 and you hook up the ground to the green screw. Do NOT connect the neutral to the motor.

A motor set up for 230VAC will run on 115VAC but will overheat and shut down over time. The motor nameplate should tell you what wires need to be reconnected and how in order to operate the motor on a 115VAC circuit. Once you change the wires your motor should go back to normal operation.

Maytag neptune top load bearings seized in drum pulley , freed bearings and greased.now drum spins free but hard time to start turning is it possible motor trouble ?


I’m an owner not a repair person but I will pass on my FAV6800AW Clutch issue experience.

With an empty Wash Basket open the lid and with one finger (pinky) you should be able to rotate the wash basket with little rotational resistance. I’m not sure how else to describe normal Wash Basket CCW rotational resistance in the Spin direction of the system. In my eyes any more resistance than that would indicate some binding in the system. If the roller clutches were seized as you describe I would replace the clutch but lets discuss further.

How much CCW rotational resistance did you detect with the clutch out? Did you follow this post for the One-Way Roller clutch bearing clean up? In that post I discuss checking for CCW rotational resistance prior to removing the Clutch. Does your FAV6800AW use the upper Roller Clutch Bearing Ring as I show in this post? If so what condition was it in?

The Outer Tub bearings may be adding to the CCW rotational resistance (Leaking Tub Seal). You could remove the belt off the Clutch pulley the motor should spin freely by hand and I feel you will find that is not causing the increased CCW rotational resistance with the above check.

I would drop the clutch out again and check the Wash Basket CCW rotational resistance. That would give me a feel if the Outer Tub bearings are adding to the CCW rotational resistance. If the Wash Basket rotates CCW freely I would replace the clutch with the one I recommend in this post.

Post back if you have questions and maybe we can have another forum member speak to this issue. I could be over looking something in troubleshooting. Good Luck

Wires came off capacitor. motor seems to be running backwards


Pump motors used in most pool aplications can not be reversed. Changing the wires on the capacitor or reversing the line connections will not change the motor rotation. A failed capacitor can, from time to time, let a motor start "backwards" but it will not happen often if even at all. You might need to take the motor to a local electric motor repair shop for an inspection.

Washer doesn't spin


Hello skull1829 ,

Was the Clutch/One-way roller bearing changed out for dc/UC errors in your FAV6800AW/FAV9800AW?

If you start a Spin Only Cycle with an empty wash basket will the wash basket spin up CCW and complete the cycle? Lift the washer top from the base a few inches to observe the wash basket CCW rotation in spin cycle. If the clutch spring is broken or end pins of spring aren't seated the tumblers will rotate and the wash basket will rotate slowly CCW.


IF the wash basket won't spin up can you pull the front cover off and insure the motor will rotate the clutch pulley CCW in a Spin Only Cycle? Let’s try these few basic tests and get some feedback for troubleshooting.
