Can you convert the motor on the Hitachi C10FL to 220?

It appears that you can from what could gather----you should have a schematic on the inside of the wiring cover on the motor---you should have a professional electrician do this for you to save your life.---make sure it's unplugged when and if you do this and follow the instructions "explicitly" but you will have to have a new wiring 4 wire lead for 240 Vt ---240 Vt plug and a 240 Vt receptical and 240 Vt--- 4 wire circuit with 240 breaker---it's not a walk in the park---have a professional electrician do this for you

I have a 12 inch chraftsman table saw with 2 wires coming from motor. The wiring diagram inside the cap shows it to be wired for 240 how do I wire that thru a switch and to a three wire recepticle

Not quite sure what your question is - Are you trying to plug a 240 into a 110/120 outlet? Or are you trying to plug this into a 240 3 prong outlet?

Traditionally, table saws don't come with a power cord - you must supply one. Usually on the motor there is a metal plate that describes volts/amps/phase/hp etc. Get the Volts/Amps from this plate, then measure the approximate distance between your table saw and the 240 outlet. The gauge of the power cord depends upon the Volt/Amps and the length of the cord. There are many volts/amps vs length for wire gauge conversions on the net. I always get a bigger wire (smaller gauge) than what is recommended. Expect to pay $100 or more for the cord (don't be cheap here). If you have an under rated cord, you can start a fire, burn up your motor, melt plugs into outlets and have to replace the outlet (don't ask how I know).

I'm a little suspicious of the "white and black" wire from 240 - it's usually "white and red" with a "black" ground. 240 is made from two 120's - opposite sine wave. So black is usually the common ground, while the white and red are the two 120's. Volts between white-red=240, white-black=120, red-black=120. If you're absolutely sure that white-black=240, then you can just connect a ground wire to the motor case. Many home table saws can be wired for 240 or 120 - you need to make sure that you're hooking 240v to the correct wires. If you're uncertain at all, then don't do it.

I have wired 120 to a 240 motor by accident and the motor ran - it had no power and didn't spin at full RPM. You can damage a motor this way, so I wouldn't recommend it. I have never put 240 to a 120 motor - so I don't know what happens (guessing you could burn up the motor coils).

With all that being said, if you have 240 outlet with 3 wire receptacle, then just use a multi-meter to determine the 2 "hot" and the 1 ground. Volts from hot1-hot2=240, hot1-ground=120, hot2-ground=120. If you don't have a multi-meter, buy one (approx $12). Once you have it wired up, then try the motor by flipping the switch on then off again. If the motor didn't spin, then you did something wrong. If it hummed but didn't spin, you have some connections wrong inside of the motor. If it spins the wrong way, then your wiring inside of the motor is wrong (doesn't help to flip the wires on the outlet). If you blew a circuit breaker, then the wiring to the motor is wrong.

I have 240 timer switch and I wana use it for 120 ? How can I do that?

if the switch is rated for 240, then hook up the same way but use the 110 black and white wire for 110 volts to switch, instead of the red and black wire for 240 . on 110 black wire is always hot and the white is the neutral wire. the best wire to use is 12/2 with ground.

I have the c8866 cycle timer I want hook it up to a low presure pump switch. from the panel I have 10- 2 w/ ground this is 220. My question is. Is the ground my nuetral and if so is this also ground? the...

You have 220Volts (same as 240V), then that circuit does not need a neutral.
All household single phase voltage requires two wires to complete the circuit.
With 120V, you have 1 hot wire and 1 neutral wire.
With 240, you have 2 hot wires, and these hot wires are called 'out of phase' since each comes from separate side of breaker box.
Notice that your 220V 10-2 wire goes back to a double breaker. This double breaker snaps over two different busbars. The breaker pulls 2 out of phase 120Volt lines, and when testing voltage across those two out of phase 120V wires, you get 240V potential.
The ground wire is redundant safety in both 120 or 240 Volt circuits, and is not necessary for either 120 or 240 to operate.

240 Volts from one wire to ground.

You should have about 120v from each " I " to the " L " , and 240 across both " I " . It sounds like the " L " ( neutral ) , is getting power instead of the " I " ( line ) .

How do you wire a model GMXST-1-240-M Intermatic timer

There are many ways to wire the Intermatic GMXST-1-240-M timer. If it is not wired correctly you can permanently damage the timer.

For "regular" use, if all you want to do is turn a 240 volt load ON and OFF with the 7-day timer, and you are _very_ sure that you have a 240 volt timer (they can be 120 volt or 240 volt), here is how to wire it:

LINE connections:
The first incoming LINE (L1) 240 volt wire (pick one) is connected to terminal #1. A jumper (same wire size) is then installed from terminal #1 to terminal #3 [(COM) or (Common)].

The other incoming LINE (L2) 240 volt wire is connected to terminal #2.

LOAD connections:
The first outgoing (LOAD) 240 volt wire (pick one) is connected to terminal #2 _also_.

The other outgoing (LOAD) 240 volt wire is connected to terminal #4 [(NO) or (Normally Open)].

Again, while this is still just a basic timer there are at least 10 different ways to wire it depending on what kind of equipment is used, how one wants to control the equipment (using the Normally Open or Normally Closed contacts) or (HI or LOW speed for a 2 speed fan), the clock voltages (120v or 240v), and the load voltages (24 volt to 240 volt).

If you are not sure how to wire this timer after reading this post, I highly recommend posting back with very specific information or calling a _qualified_ electrician, as mis-wiring this timer can permanently damage the timer, connected equipment, and/or personnel (that means you).

Here is the wiring diagram:

T103 clock not working

Please read all of this post. You may burn up the 120 volt T103 timer motor is you are not careful.

The statement: "I have 120v board with 120 constant and 240 timed" is not very clear to me as to what you mean.

In US residential wiring, the white wire is not always the "neutral;" The white wire is sometimes used for 240 volt circuits.

We cannot tell you how to wire your timer unless we know _exactly_ what you have.

If your incoming supply cable (from the breaker box) has 3 wires (black, white, and bare), there are two scenarios:

1...If the voltage from black (hot) to white (ALSO hot in this case) is 240 volts, and you have only 3 wires (black, white, and bare), then the T103 is the _wrong_ timer if you are trying to control a 240 volt load. You should use a T104 timer.

The T104 uses a 240 volt timer motor and the T103 uses a 120 volt timer motor.

2...If the voltage between black and white is 120 volts, then you will only be able to control 120 volt loads; then the incoming black supply wire is connected to terminal 3 and the white (neutral) wire is connected to the "A" terminal. The bare equipment grounding wire is then connected to the "GR" terminal.

To show the difference, if you are trying to control a 240 volt load, to use a T103 and wire it _correctly_, you would need to have a incoming supply cable with a total of 4 wires (black, red, white (neutral), and bare) Black to red would be 240 volts. Black to white would be 120 volts. Red to white would be 120 volts.
The connections would be as follows:
White (neutral in this case) to the "A" terminal
Black to terminal 1
Red to terminal 3
The 240 volt load would then connect to terminals 2 and 4
Both the bare equipment grounding wires are connected to the "GR" terminal.

Since you did not mention a red wire, I can only ASSUME that this is not the case.

Sorry, we can't tell you how to wire this timer based upon assumptions.

So, what do you have?
