I have another post on here about how I purchased a Jointer on Friday, assembled it and turned it on and the motor runs backwards (blades spin counterclockwise). I was a little disgruntled at the time (6 hours of putting the thing together and then about to joint a board and this happens can do that to you), so the conversation got a little off track. I wanted to create this topic to address the wiring of the motor specifically to see if I can still save this jointer.
This is a HF 6” jointer and they need the whole thing returned (meaning hours of setup on a new one) and will not just swap motors.
I opened the motor plate where the wires come in from the outlet (this is a 110v motor). The pictures below show the wiring. The black and white go on the bottom left and bottom right. I attempted to switch them as it appears that is what the diagram (in the picture) shows when it say “To reverse inter change k1&k2.” There is no change in the motion of the motor when these wires are swapped.
Would swapping the wires in the upper right and upper left have any affect?
Thanks for the help.
