    This info did not help at all. The coloes of the wires and the locations of the lugs are not applicapible. I sent more info but it seems to have been in the wroimgh form and now I am out of luck. I have no way to help you understand and thus site is terrible to work with.

    I found this and maybe this will help.

    I sent you an e-mail yesterday that the information did not help at all. I still have not recieved any support to solve this problem.

    I do not see how this does relate to what I have. here are some more input about the motor I have.

You wiring should match the "high voltage" side of the top left diagram on the second page of this pdf.

If the rotation is wrong just switch wires 5 and 8....

For that motor to operate correctly you need to have at least #10 wire going to it on a double pole 30 amp breaker....

    Sorry, I did get a email from Fixya support this morning, but have been working at my day job, self employed as a HVAC and mechanical contractor....

    Sorry for the delay...

    Here is how to wire that motor....

    Move the brown wire to the #7 post...

    Then move the white wire to where the brown wire was....

    Then hook up your two 230v leads to L1 and L2 and you will be in business!!! Of course hook the ground to the ground screw...

    This was not an easy one....:-)

Have an old (1977) Sears 2 hp, 20 gallon air compressor. It is wired for 230 volts. Is it possible to rewire it for 115 volts ?

you'd have to change the voltage regulator, which is usually inside the motor - on newer motors, if they have a separate Power Supply, you can sometimes change it on a slide switch... keep in mind, that 230 is MUCH more effective for a device made for drawing a lot of power - that motor might draw 8-10 amps at 220, which will be 2x that if you go to 110... so, when all is said and done, it might work out cheaper to just spend like $200 and buy a new 110 unit that is similar... but again, depends what you want to use it for...

Need to know how to put the wires in the right order on a AO Smith 5.0 56 spa pump red white and black

Red and Black should each be connected to the individual power legs, for 230 V operation. The white wire should be connected to ground.

My type 30 slows down when the tank pressure reaches close to 100 psi.. motor is new as this caused old one to burn up,, what can it be?

1. Are you sure the motor is wired for the correct voltage? If you have 230V 3PH,Make sure that you do have 3 hot legs. you should have L1-1+7, L2-2+8, L3-3+9 and 4+5+6 connected together. If it is wired for 480V it will not have enough torque. Check rotation. There should be an arrow on pully (large one on compressor)

Wire this motor for reverse rotation

First, take the plate where the wires connect to the motor off, and the solution is normally found in the dust cap for the wiring. If not there, go to the AO Smith website with your motor model number and there should be instructions on which of the numbered leads to group together in order to reverse the rotation. Don't worry- it's easy. Don't forget to unplug everything before changing these wires around.

I have a 2hp compressor motor that keeps tripping the breaker after about 5 minutes of use. i have changed the caps but it keeps popping the starter cap. is the motor just bad?

Our 2 HP Speedaire horizontal tank compressor is rated 115 / 230 volts at 24 / 12 amps, respectively. This means at 115 volts, a 30 amp circuit breaker is the bare minimum. That also means that the wiring should be #10 copper wires for short runs, but the next size up; #8 copper wires would be better connected to a 40 amp circuit breaker. Running at 230 drops the amperage requirement by half, to 12. A #14 copper wire is minimum for short runs with a double pole 15 amp circuit breaker, but #12 copper wires connected to a double pole 20 amp circuit breaker would be better choice.

If the compressor is cord connected (or even directly wired) with the minimum sized wires, it will likely a voltage drop problem unless very close to the panel. This problem is more pronounced as the distance between the circuit breaker and motor increases, or when smaller wires are in the circuit. All the voltage at the circuit breaker does not reach the motor, as it is lost as heat; so the compressor only sees 90 to 105 volts instead of the 115 volts it expects.

If the cords, connections, etc are getting hot, it is a tell tale sign of under-sized wires and /or poor connections. Once you solve these problems, the compressor should run "as advertised " because motors usually don't "go bad" but fail all at once. Unless you have a bearing problem - or there is a problem with the load itself (compressor).

I hope this helped.
