Well, I haven't had a chance to check the rotation yet but I am mildly optimistic that this could be the problem. I don't know the etiquette for posting links on this forum but here goes...http://www.nyb.com/rotation-discharge.asp
. This is from a company called New York Blower. They make industrial fans for stuff like dust collectors, process dryers, etc.. The diagrams seem to confirm what the rotation direction should be for a blower and if mine is running clockwise from the view shown in my pics, it is running backwards.
My major concern is that the direction specification for my motor says "Selective CCW". I'm not sure what this means. Is the motor reversible or not? Here is the specificaiton sheet for my motor I found on the manufacturer's website. http://www.marathonelectric.com/MMPS...em=048S17D2086
There is a link to a PDF drawing and wiring diagram on this page which indicates which leads to switch to reverse the motor but the connection diagram doesn't explicity name my motor so I want to verify that it is reversible before attempting to rewire.
