I have a 1 ½ hp, 4 pole single phase, 1720 rpm, 115/230 volt motor. I am attempting to wire the motor for 115 volt. I set the continuity tester on 2,000 ohms. When the leads were placed together the reading was 0.
The attached pic is the plate on the motor.
Readings between the following wires.
This may reflect the correct wiring on that motor’s plate, but what about the capacitor?
What do I do with the capacitor? The motor has three placed to connect wires:
1 3 2-4
Ok? If the motor needs to be reversed:
1-3 4 2
Any help would be appreciated.
