230v fan


I have a black wire, a brown wire a blue wire and a yellow wire with a green stripe coming from the fan. Can I hook this fan up to a 110v line ? If I can , could you tell me which color goes to the blk, the white and the ground. I did try several different ways, the motor did turn, but only at a slow rpm. You have stated that there is a red wire coming from the 230v fan, I do not have a red wire

On the side of the motor or housing there should be
a motor lead connection diagram that shows if you can
run that motor on 120 v or not.

The green and yellow stripe is ground. If the motor says 240 volts then it will not operate on 120 volts. If it says 120/240 volts then it can operate on 120 or 240 volts and there should be a drawing on the motor. If there is not drawing then post the make make and model number and maybe we can help.

Wayne.,

To really help you on this fan motour we do defentaly need model number due there are few differnt way to connect it.

However if this motour is straight 240 volts ( it will say on the infomation plate or sticker on the motour ) then you have a true 240 volts possiblty two speed motour maybe three ( I doubt it ) due you have brown conductor most likely used with capaitour.

But before I can comment more as other mention s.v.p. get the model number that will really assit us alot.

Merci,
Marc

if the motor info tag doesn't show VOLTS:115/230,and you don't see a neutral connection on that schematic it's not 115V
