Hi could some help with the correct way to wire this motor? i got it from my old tumble dryer, I have had it turning , by connecting any of the 3 wires!!! one wire connected, to the live (brown wire from plug) + one wire connected ,to the blue (neutral wire from plug ) power supply is coming from a cable with a plug fitted, i also had connected it via the capacitor, (2 wire from motor on capacitor) one wire connected to the brown from plug and blue from plug went to capacitor this also worked fine, just need to check this?

Do you still have the dryer, almost all have a wiring schematic posted somewhere on the inside.

Have your say...
