Most direct-drive electric compressors can run on a standard 110-volt circuit. When you get into the electric wheelbarrow compressors, you may have a choice for a dual-voltage option, which allows you to switch between 110-volt and 220-volt, depending on power supply that is available for the job. However, for jobs that require substantially more air, usually a 220-volt motor will be your only choice if a gas-powered compressor is not allowed as an option. When looking for a stationary shop compressor, you need to know what power supply you have at your disposal (208v, 230v, or 460v), and whether it is a single-phase or three-phase power. These units are usually hard-wired into the power supply and require a magnetic starter for thermal overload protection

Pajero 3.5 24V 1994 DOHC ignition coil cheaps burining


check that you are fitting the correct voltage coils into the vehicle . There are 2 voltages . One is a start 12 v run 12volts and the other is start12v run 7.5 volts . It uses a resistor either in the coil or the wire from the ignition. The voltages are stamped into the coil housing. If you have a start 12v run 7.5 and it is burning then check that there is 7.5 volts on the run circuit and not 12 volts. Second point do not leave the ignition turned on to run accessories when the engine is not running as the coil will still get voltage continuously instead of a pulse and will overheat and burn out. Use the accessories side of the switch position.

How are the wires installed for the AC


Hello, you need to run 18 gauge thermostat wire from the Y and C terminals on the control board to each low voltage terminal on the outdoor contactor side terminals. Best way is th run it along the suction line and support it with wire ties. The high voltage wires will run from the disconnect box on the outside to the high voltage terminals on the contactor coil. The high voltage wires will be run in liquid tight conduit.

Adjust voltage on motor control board


Dear Sir:
You can adjut the voltage motor in m.m.board.
The only way is 1) Put some regulator voltage in the line for to maintain the voltage in the line Good 2)Try to get some circuit special for your treadmill without interference 3) You can add the voltage from the transformer inside from your machine.
However You can RUN the software calibration for diagnose, troubleshooting, and fix it.

sincerely. God bless you

Amana front load washer hums only


A centrifugal switch to allow the motor to start up on the start winding and once started it opens to take it out of the start winding. The motor has to have voltage applied to the start winding and the run winding at the same time in order for the motor to start. The capacitor is part of the start circuit. When the motor goes to start, the voltage must be applied to the start winding in order for the motor to start or it will just hum. The moment the motor reaches a certain RPM the centrifugal switch opens up to remove the start voltage to the motor and it will remain running on the run winding. The motor will not start up on run voltage alone. It needs both, the start voltage and run voltage.

I think the problem is that the motor is not getting the start voltage supplied to the motor or the start winding has opened up in the motor.

Motor start but does not run


Are you saying that the motor runs until you stop cranking it? or just that it truns over while the starter is engaged but doesn't fire at all?
If it's running while cranking but stalls immediately after you release the key and allow it to go into the "Run" position, then the ballast resistor of the ignition system is most likely bad. The idea is that on older cars with electronic ignition, the starter motor caused such a big voltage drop on the cars electrical system that the ignition coil wasn't provided a high enough voltage for proper spark to occur, so they wired them such that the ignition coil could handle the low voltage which was present during the cranking of the starter, but when you stopped cranking and the engine was running normally, suddenly without the voltage drop of the starter, the voltage would be to high and would damage the ignition circuit. Thus a 'ballast resistor' was added to the ignition circuit and it is only in line when the car is in the "run" position. This allows the ignition system the proper voltage to operate whether cranking or running, but sometimes the ballast resistors go bad, causing the engine to run while cranking but causing an open circuit in the ignition system when placed in the "run" position.
Good Luck.

Can i run fire rated 18 gage wire in the same wiremold with other lowvoltage wire ie burg wire


Yes, provided the 18 gauge wire is being used in a low voltage application. You do not want to run any type of high voltage wire in any raceway with low voltage. Hope this helps.
