Topic tags/keywords: motor wiring help 110 220

Hi all,

I picked up a Delta BS yesterday that was wired to 220. I’ve already changed the plug but am now at a complete loss when trying to rewire the motor itself.

I’ve attached some pictures and am really hoping someone can help.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Thank you,

it isn’t variable speed
there isn’t provision for a foot switch.

there is a second cover on the end of the motor with the motor lead connections under it.
for the connections you have listed. MOST likely the black and white are one contact set and the pink and yellow are the other set. check these with an ohm meter to make sure. connect the black wire to one lead and check for continuity to the white. |Flip the switch and check the same wires. if you have continuity the above is correct. check all wires and establish sets. If you determine the above is correct.

cord black to switch black
switch white to motor black
motor white to cord white
cap the pink and yellow together or apart makes no difference.

Then you need to find the other cover on the end of the motor to modify the motor leads for low voltage use.
