L1 L2 are the common or line,cord color doesn't mater, green is ground. also should be the ones with screws. try powering the motor for just a few second 2-3 at the most, if it snaps right to life you got it, if it starts slow or not at all, immediately shut it off and check the wiring again. pictures help us fixya guy help u better. there is thousands of different motors

SOURCE: re sent wire diagram gat all messed up

have we spoke before in previous post?
the red can go to any 12v live peramanent such as wire to clock or other item that has power with ignition off and the same with the yellow if your putting these to the same permanent live say from clock you can join these to together red/yellow to red on clock
the black can go to any metal or neg wire.
This should then have your device working the only problem im looking at for you now is the pink wire as this stops you using the device whilst driving as it goes to handbrake but i need to find out if its live or negative.
You could just wire the red/yellow to live and black to earth then see if it switches on and works if not then let me know and ill see about the pink wire ok
Makes sure you use inline fuses on the live wires so as not to short the device out.
Make sure you know what is permanent live to put the yellow/red wire to.
It doesnt need to be ignition it only says this so you cant use it with ignition off but you can wire it into any live feed from clock or switches so its up to you what to wire it to its just the pink wire im concerned about.

PINK: does it tell you to put it to live or earth on handbrake switch?

let me know ok

SOURCE: I am replacing the a/c

Motor Wiring
Old Motor
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
New Motor
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.

SOURCE: I am trying to connect my new pool motor.

If you put the tester on the white wire and ground and you read 120V, AND you put the tester on the black and ground and you also read 120V- you have 240 V. I don't know what tester you're using, but you should be reading 240V with the tester connected to the black and white wires. Also, to confirm if this circuit is 240V, look to see if the circuit breaker is a double breaker (two breaker switches connected to each other, so when you turn the breaker off, the two switches turn off together)
Does the motor operate on 240V? there should be directions/diagram on the motor housing where the wires hook up. Look on the cover inside, or in the user manual to see if you can hook the pump up to 240V.
Just as a side note - If this circuit is ,in fact, 240V, the white wire insulation should really be covered over with either black or red electrical tape, to identify it as a hot wire.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

SOURCE: GE digital timer. Instructions say to: 1)

Find the Hot wire:
Your switch has 2 wires. One of these wires is Hot, and one goes to load. Disconnect wires from switch. Turn on power. Do not stand on wet surface. Test each wire to bare copper wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire. The other wire goes to load.

Connect wires:
Hot wire goes to Black timer wire
Wire to load goes to Red timer wire
White wire connects to white wires that are twisted together
Bare copper wire connects to Green wire from timer

How to connect white wire to white wires that are twisted together.
a) Strip white timer wire so you have 1-1/2 " of bare wire. Stranded wire will wrap around other wires easily.
b) Remove wire nut. DO NOT UNTWIST wires.
c) Hold all whites together so bare copper lines up. Wrap stranded copper around the twisted wire.
d) Replace wire nut, or use larger wire nut. Twist real tight. Do not use tape. You can solder the connection.
e) When done, pull on white time wire to make sure it is held tight. Push whites back into box.

Black wire, white wire, and tan wire coming from ceiling. New fan has blue, black, white wire and green wire on the bracket how does it hook up

1. Have on hand either wire connectors or electrical tape

2. Look at the wires coming from your ceiling fan. The black wire from the ceiling fan is the hot wire that runs the motor and turns the fan blades. The white wire is neutral and completes the fan circuit. The blue wire is the hot wire for the ceiling fan light fixture. The ceiling fan motor does not have a ground wire.

3. Find the short green wire or the green ground screw on your ceiling fan hanging bracket. Attach the bare copper wire from your electrical box to the short green wire by twisting and orange wire connector to the two wires. If you only have a green ground screw, wrap the bare copper wire around this screw and tighten the screw against the bracket to secure the wire.

4. Match the end of the white insulated wire from the ceiling fan to the end of the white wire from your electrical box. Twist a wire connector onto the two wires to complete the neutral circuit.

5. Connect the black insulated wire from the ceiling fan to the black insulated wire from the electrical box. If you do not have a separate toggle switch on the wall to operate the ceiling fan and light separately, grab the blue wire and place it with the black wire from the fan motor and the black insulated wire from the electrical box. Twist a wire connector to all three wires. If you have the additional toggle switch, connect the two black wires together with an orange wire connector, and then match the blue wire and the red wire together. Twist another orange wire connector on the red and blue wires

I need a schematic diagram for the wiring for a my

I don't believe any such diagrams exist for the public.

But , based on the following assumptions:
1. There are three wires coming out of the motor: Black, White and Green.
2. There is a single pole (spst) or double pole (dpst) switch that attaches to the saw chassis.

I can make the following conclusions:
You need a suitable 10-3 rubber coated power cord 8 or 10 feet long with a plug with ground that also has three wires the same color as the leads coming from the motor.
You will probably need to cut off a suitable section of the power cord to go from the switch mounting location to the motor. I'm not familiar with the saw but lets say 2' to 3' long. This wire should not be stretched at any point or loose enough that it would get caught on objects easily. Where the wire goes through holes in the saw base, those holes must have grommets or strain reliefs to protect the wire from abrasion and wear on the insulation.
The black wire ends from the motor and from the cord to the plug are to be routed through the switch so that operating the switch interrupts/connects current through the black wire.
If the switch is a double-pole switch, then the white leads are also attached to the second set of connectors on the switch. If the switch is single-pole, then the ends of the white wires are twisted together and connected with a suitable sized wire nut. The connection with the wire nut is then tightly wrapped with electrical tape. If the chassis where the switch is mounted is plastic or non-conductive, then the ends of the green wires are twisted together and connected with a wire nut, in the same way as the white wires, then wrapped tightly with electrical tape. If the switch is mounted to a conductive surface, then a 6" green pigtail wire is to be included in the wire nut binding the two green wires and the other end of the pigtail is to be fastened to the same conductive surface the switch is mounted on. All connections are to be contained in a suitable box and not exposed with a lid fastened in place.
The wires on the other end of the 2' to 3' lead is to be fastened similarly to the leads in the motor and the motor electrical cover plate must cover all connections.

The above instructions apply only if the assumptions listed at the beginning are correct. In any case, all wiring should be approved by a licensed electrician.

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.

If you're lucky, there's a circuit breaker built into the table saw motor and a little red button somewhere on the motor to reset it.

When you re-wire it. know that the cord should have a black wire (hot), a white wire (neutral), and a green wire (ground).
When you wire the power cord to the switch, the black wire should be the one that goes directly to the switch contacts and gets disconnected when you turn off the switch. The white wire goes through the rest of the system up to the motor. The green wire grounds out the metal parts that you might touch.

If you have to replace the motor, get a 3450 rpm to 3600 rpm motor. Harbor Freight has one for about $140 before any discount.
I recommend at least 1.5 HP

Need help wiring a 5HP 1Phase motor on Powermatic 66

As you only have 4 wires from the motor it should be straight forward as two would be from the start winding (Black and red) and the other the run winding (White with yellow stripe and Blue). You should be able to check this with a tester as there should only be continuity between the wires as mentioned above.

Reference the thermal switch, I am not 100% sure on the color codes but have attached a diagram which should help but will advise as best as I can on the connection. The diagram is for a high/low voltage but you can disregard the winding on 3 and 4 but should help on the understanding.

Join the blue and black wire from the motor together and connect to the black wire from the supply. You should be able to run the motor (Excluding the thermal switch) by connecting the White with yellow stripe and the red wire together along with the white from the supply. To include this switch I would presume that you would connect the red wire from the motor to the brown wire from the thermal switch, the yellow wire from thermal switch to the White with yellow stripe from the motor and finally the white wire from the thermal switch to the white from the supply.

Rockwell 34 345

Assuming the power cord is 15 amp, 120 VAC, let's start with the green wire. It is a ground for human protection. It should be connected to the metal parts of the saw. Next, the white wire is a "neutral" and should be connected to one side of the motor windings. While a "neutral" is tied to ground at the power panel, it does carry electrical current.

The black "hot" wire should connect to a common or normally open terminal of the power switch. The remaining normally open terminal should connect to the common terminal of the "reset button". The reset is actually a thermal overload protection device. The three terminals should be common, normally open, and normally closed. Connect the normally closed terminal to the remaining motor winding.

P.S. The reset device may have been bypassed because it failed. Replacements can be hard to find.

New switch GE model 15265 ... to light up 2 lightbulbs outside. Old switch all cables are black. Those who light up the tester are the hot=Red/black?? Those which do not light up are white?? Green I know...

Manual for GE 15265
15A timer works fine on two bulbs, up to 1440 total watts.

If old switch has 2 screws plus green ground screw, then timer is right.
If old switch has 3 screws plus green ground screw, 15265 doesn't replace 3-way switch.

Timer-green wire connects to bare ground wire

Old switch has 2 screws with wires on each.
One wire is Hot-from breaker and this connects to timer-black wire.
One wire Goes-to-lights and this connects to timer-red wire.
If you get these two wires reversed, timer will not work, so reverse them.
It will not blow circuit if the timer-red and timer-black wires are reversed.

Timer-White wire is the confusing wire for everybody:
Timer-white wire runs clock motor located inside timer.
In back of electric box are neutral white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut.
Connect timer-white to these neutral wires.
If box does not have neutral white wires, connect timer-white to bare ground wire.

1 HP. motor wiring, need help!

Simple to do. Go to the local hardware or home improvement store and get a 6 to 8 foot heavy-duty extension cord. Cut the outlet end (not the Plug end) off, you won't use it. Strip back the outer casing of the cord to expose the three wires, black, white and green.
The Green wire is connected to frame of the motor or saw to ground it for safety reasons.
The White wire is connected to the silver color screw connection.
The Black wire is connected to one terminal of the switch, another wire is connected from the second switch terminal to the brass color screw on the motor.
Plug in the extension cord, and flip "ON" the switch and cut some wood and think of your Grandpa....good guy!
