If you are installing a 3 prong plug you would only have 3 wires, none are color coded. The middle is your ground/neutral wire and the outer 2 are both hot so, as long as you put the middle wire onto the middle stud, the other 2 hot wires can go on either hot stud left or right they are both the same. If you are running a new circuit from the breaker box then you will need a 2- pole 240 volt breaker and what every amperage is listed for MAX breaker size on the compressor. Should be able to run # 10ga wire that is good for 30amps. The 2 hot wires would connect to the breaker and the middle wire would hook to ground in the breaker box.... You can use black or red wires for the hots and I would use green wire for the ground. Or you can run 10/3 romex wire to the outlet from the breaker box if you don't use conduit.......If you use romex the white wire will be ground/neutral and the other two the power wires it doesn't matter which goes where .....

As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

Read the nameplate on the compressor and on the air handler's blower motor. That's the only way to know what the load will be.

The Electric motor does not have enough torque to start compressor. It is hooked up to 230V with 40 amp single phase. checked voltage with meter so I know it has enough voltage.


Does it trip the breaker or does the motor just hum and not turn the compressor? The motor may need a start capacitor. Do not keep tryin to start you can burn out the start winding on the motor.
TURN OFF POWER AND LOCK OUT.... try and take the belts off (if it has belts)of the motor and compressor and make sure both turn freely. IF THEY TURN FREELY THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE MOTOR. You said voltage, wire size and breakers are the right size.
Hope this helps you with your problem...Jim...please leave a comment

WIREING IN NEW IEC CONTACTOR AND THERMAL OVERLOAD


I CAN PROBABLY DRAW YOU A DIAGRAM BUT SEE IF YOU CAN UNDERSTAND THIS FIRST. ASSUMING YOUR STARTER COIL REQUIRES THE SAME VOLTAGE OF YOUR COMPRESSOR. 230V MOTOR = 230V COIL ON STARTER. YOU HAVE 2 OR 3 HOT WIRES ATTACHING TO THE TOP OF THE STARTER ( 1 PHASE OR 3 PHASE). TAKE A JUMPER WIRE INSERTED UNDER THE SAME LUG AS 1 HOT LEG AND GO STAIGHT TO 1 SIDE OF THE COIL. THEN TAKE ANOTHER JUMPER WIRE FROM ANOTHER HOT LUG - PASS THRU THE TRIP PACK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE STARTER ( IN AND OUT) THEN GO TO PRESSURE SWITCH. TAKE THE OTHER PRESSURE SWITCH WIRE TO THE LOW OIL SWITCH. TAKE THE OTHER LOW OIL WIRE TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STARTER COIL. THEREFORE YOU WILL HAVE ONE SIDE OF THE COIL HOT ALL THE TIME AND WAITING FOR THE OTHER SIDE TO GET HOT. AS LONG THE OTHER LONGER CIRCUIT IS A COMPLETE CIRCUIT IT WILL WORK - IN A SERIES THE TRIP PACK SAYS OK, THEN THE PRESSURE SWITCH SAYS OK, THEN THE LOW OIL SWITCH SAYS OK AND THEN VOLTAGE GOES TO COIL AND PULLS THE STARTER IN. IF THIS IS TOO CONFUSING SEND ME AN EMAIL AND HOPEFULLY A PIC OF YOUR NEW STARTER TO JBRIDGERS@CA-EQUIP.COM AND I'LL TRY TO HELP YOU FURTHER. HOPE THIS HELPS.

How to connect 230V,60Hz 2400 BTU Airconditioner in 115V 60 Hz environment. Mainy how do you get a 230V supply requirement.


Impossible to do because the compressor is wired to use 230V. The motor on the compressor won't even run. You will need to have an electrician come in and check your breaker box to see if you can add a 2 pole breaker that will be needed to run the a/c. To add 230 volt, you will need to upgrade the wiring as well as the breaker. I wouldn't recommend you doing this at all! You risk killing yourself and or burning your house down. Hire a proffesional for this job.

However, I believe that this motor will be more efficient at 230v depending on load conditions. At 115v this motor will draw more amps and tend to run hot, but situation rules. Enjoy

Wireing this type AC with the wrong voltage, will damage more than the circuit boards. I think the installer wil need to be responsible for the damage he created. The factory will also try to get out of the replacement because of the installers lack of know how.
