Allowing for start up current I would put a 16amp 3 phase breaker/trip in circuit. If this trips then use a 20amp.

Plugged it in and it won't run but it was running fine when I put it away two weeks ago.

Check the plug for loose wire or at blower where wire it enters to make sure the wire was not pulled and disconnected inside. If after looking and it is not a wire, check the brushes on the motor. They could be worn out or not making a good contact. Blow out brush housing and re-install brush sometimes this works. That's about all I can think of unless there is a safety switch then check that. Good luck.

I need a wiring diagram for the Hobart H600 which has a multi tap motor on and i would like to change the voltage on the motor to 200volt single phase 120/208 or even 120208 3phase. The wiring diagram is...

You cannot wire a three phase motor for single phase and you cannot wire a single phase motor for three phase. If you have a three phase dual voltage motor your options are 220 or 440 volts. If you have a single phase dual voltage motor your options are 120 or 240 volts. A 208 volt Hobart motor will only function correctly on 208 volts and is not dual voltage.

If i am in the process of buying a generator to run 2 carrier RV rooftop ac units how big should the generator be?

You need to find out the maxamps of the rooftops which is located on each unit, then you will need to find out if these are 1phase, 2phase or 3phase units.
That information is also located on the unit and usually is marked 1P or 2P or 3P. If its 3Phase you
would need to talk to a electrical contractor or the
manufactuer of the generator you wish to purchace.

More in for is needed on the phase of the unit and amps that it draws

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

Taylor 1999, series 754, 3phase ice cream dispenser freeze up

I have had this with other Taylor machines. The rear drive bearing has a pin driven into the coupling that turns the beater bar. This pin will shear off. The pulley will turn and give the illution that the beater bar is turning but it really isn't. With the unit unplugged, try holding the beater bar still and try turning the large drive pulley.
I have also had situations where the hex piece that the drive shaft goes into, was rounded out. As soon as the mix go a little firm, the beater bar would stop turning but the rear drive assy didn't.
Check this out and let me know.

How to get a siemens micromaster 440 up and running

Hello Stephen The first thing you have to do is make sure that the motor is connected for 220 volt three phase How do you know? your motor must have this connection info on the name plate It must show 220v Delta connection and 380 or 400 v star connection. connect your motor in Delta ie the motor connection links are connected from U 1 to V2, U1 to W2 and V1 to U2. Ok Now for the restof it You have asmall book that came with the inverter so go to page 9 and you will see the drawing for mm440 at the bottom you will see the connection for the speed pot. which is 1,2,3,4, wire in as shown make sure the wiping connection is in wire in a switch across 9 which is the common and 5 this starts and runs the inverter when you open the switch the inverter will ramp down and stop.... IF YOU look at page 8 it shows how delta and star is connected at the motor..... now go to page12 for this you must have the power on to the inverter.. as you enter the parameters they come up in sequence as you enter the info...on par 700 put in 2 also at 1000 put in 2 set p1080 at 0.0...p 1082 at 50 P3900 at1 This should get you up and going

Dryer voltage problem

The dryer should work ok on 208 volts. The drying time may be a bit longer than usual since at 208 volts, you will only have 5408 watts of heat. Your bigger problem is your three phase panel. You can hook up one "hot wire" from the dryer to any of the three 3phase wires, and the other "hot wire" from the dryer to either of the two remaining 3phase connections and you will have a good connection to your dryer. However, the third wire from the dryer is a "ground wire" which has no connection in the three phase panel, or at least you didn't say it has one. If you can pull a ground wire from the grounding lug of the service panel feeding your 3phase box, and connect it to the third wire on the dryer, you would have a safe connection.

At 208v, the dryer will pull 26 amps. Be careful and make the right connections.
