When looking at the switch it self, There will be 4 contacts. On the switch 2 will be labeled Line (Power in) and 2 will be labeled Motor (power out to motor) . Hook the black and white wires from the power cord to the line side (Either contact, it does not matter). Hook the 2 black and white wires from the motor to the contacts labeled Motor on the switch. The remaining 2 green wires (one from the motor and one from the cord) are to be grounded to the case on the switch.

Wire 230 volt air compressor wiring diagrams


On 230 volts you have 3 wires 2 are 115 volt and the third wire is ground. As long as you hook the ground wires together correctly the other wires don't matter. Usually the ground wire is either white or green. The black wires are hot (115 volts).

Wiring a 230/115 1 hp 56y pool pump motor


please verify the name plate to be 115 230 volt motor.there will be a schematic that shows you exactly how to hook up this motor depending on the voltage being supplied to it. The main thing is switching between 115 and 230 volts this is a selector switch this very easily forgotten about. Please make sure to check that and double check that to make sure its on the proper selected switch. Good luck

T-30 wiring changing from 460 volts to 230 volt 3 phase


There are several items that will need to be changed or replaced. First rewire motor. Remove weather head cover. On the motor will be a tag that shows how to wire for 460 volts and 230 volts.Check the tag and present wiring to make sure they match. Then look at the 230 wiring and change wiring per motor tag. Again check the motor tag to see max amps at 460 volts and 230 volts. 230 volts will be higher than 460 volts. Check the starter (if so equiped) to see how many amps its rated for. You will probably have to replace the starter. Make sure it has a 230 volt coil. Next size the overload heaters for your amperage. This conversion is not a simple task unless you're familiar with electrical . Good luck!!!
Next the starter coil will need to be replaced with a 230 volt coil

Have tri zone 36k elect. 230/208 we only have 115/230 the connection says line ground natural thats 115, were do I hook the other 115 to get 230.


Hi, I am not quite sure of what kind of set-up you are saying you have when you say it says line ground natural? If you have a 115/230 volt power supply, this should be very easy to tie into. Look at the wiring diagram on the new unit real good and locate the 2- hot wires that should say line one or L-! and L-2. Your 230 volt wires will connect one to each side of those 2 connections, and will have a ground wire that grounds to a metal lug or screw on the unit. Look over the diagram for field wiring connections for high voltage and this will tell you where you need to hook your 230 volt wires and ground to. If this new unit is 208/230 volts, you should have connections like I have said either L-1 or t-1 and L-2 or T-2 that you will tie in your 230 volts to. Just look over the diagram and you will see where the beginning of the 2 hot wires come into the unit. There should be either 2 good sized black hot wires that are for your incoming hot wires to connect to, or they are already connected to the contactor, and you will need to connect yours to the line side of the contactor. I see what you are saying now, that they are only showing you 1- 115 volt connection to the new unit so you will have only 115 volts to run it. You want to know where the other 115 volt conductor hooks up for 230 volts. This is why you need to look at the schematic and wiring diagram that shows both of the 208/230 volt connections on this new unit so you can connect both hot wires to it. I can't pull up a picture of this on the Internet, but it will show you on the schematic on where they connect. This line ground neutral connection sounds as though its not for a hot wire, but for your ground, or if you happen to have a neutral wire that is being used for a ground. Please keep looking for the 2- line in connections as this is what you will need to find and where both 115 volt wires connect. They are your line voltage wires, so they need to connect to the load voltage hot wires at the L-1 and L-2 connections of this unit. This should be fairly laid out for you, but sounds like they have made it difficult? Look for what I have said and the schematic drawing and you will find the connections. Please don't forget to rate me as I know you will be kind. I will be checking back with you as I keep all of your information on file so I can look you back up if I need to. You can contact me by my user name below if you need me also. I wish you the best and follow my instructions and I know you will get it right.

Compressor won't switch on, have tried reset switch and circuit breaker, but though the wall unit comes on the compressor wont..anything I can do? This has three phase power Mitsubishi..Mr Slim


If you have any experience in working with electrical systems, you can, but if not you should call a service technician.
First being very careful, check to make sure contactor is engaging.
Then check to see if you have the same voltage across all three wires on the compressor side of the contactor, assuming this is 230 volts, check T1 to T2 should have 230 volts, then check T2 to T3 should have 230 volts then check T1 to T3 should have 230 volts. If you have 230 volts to all 3 wires then the compressor is bad probably an open winding and needs replaced. Before replacing the compressor you need to check the resistance (with an ohmmeter) between all 3 terminals at the compressor. In order to do this you need to disconnect all power to the unit and ohm the compressor terminals from T1 to T2, T2 to T3 and T1 to T3 they should all have the same resistance if they do then the windings are good and the compressor is locked up, if one of the the windings is different then the windings are bad, either way the compressor needs replaced.

I need a wiring diagram for a kobalt 60 gallon air compressor


If it's a 220 volt motor, hook l1 and l2 (220 volts) to the line terminals. If it's a'dual voltage' motor (120 or 220)and you want to use 120, hook 120 to the terminals marked 'line'. Make sure the motor is connected for the voltage you're using if it's dual voltage.
