On most motors the wires with the tabs are connected to the capacitor (usually brown). White wire is neutral and color wires are speeds.

Wiring a single phase 14 in fan


please do not rate this as an answer, just wanted to see if you have a model number of the fan, motor, speed controller, etc. many people here can help you, but providing an answer without knowing exactly how the default wiring is set up is never a good idea.

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.

How do I wire a three phase electric motor to 110 plug


You can't run a 3-phase motor on 110V unless you use a 3-phase inverter. Depending on the size of your motor, these will probably run you around $150 for the least expensive type. Take a look at--- http://americanrotary.com/static-phase-converters.html

Wiring diagram for electricmotor with capacitor


I do not have a diagram for you, but depending on the motor, I can tell you a couple of things. 1. All capacitors are wired in series with the start winding. Most multi-speed motors, that require capacitors, have two brown leads, along with the motor winding leads. If this is the scenario, then just connect line power to neutral and the speed you wish to use, and connect the two brown leads, one to each side of the capacitor. Hope this helps.

I bought a new electric motor ml7112 series and


does it have capacitors on the motor (humped covers on top) If not then it may ot be a single phase. also on the motor name plate or on the inside cover of the connector box it should have wiring diaphragm that will tell you how to wire the motor, single phase motor will show 2 line connections and a three phase will show 3 line connections,,, line connections are represented by L-1 L-2 L-3 these mean incoming power.

Need a wiring diagram for 5kcp39fg general electric motor


if it has a brown/purple,and black wires and is a single phase motor, the purple and black are your 2 hot phase wires, and the brown goes to the motor capacitor and on other motor cap term that goes back to the purple phase wire

Wiring diagram for single phase two pole 2.5 HP induction motor.


all you have to do is (a) open the connection box of the motor look for the two wires of the starting or running coil, inverse only one coil wire.(a) If there is no centrifugal switch in the rotor, try this it might help open the motor both end,change the direction of the shaft ,which i mean pulley side goes to fan side and fan side goes to pulley side and tighten all bolts.

Black and white are usually power. an ohmmeter will confirm. Brown are for capacitors. There is almost always a diagram on the motor someplace. Eric
