Hello guys. I've been working at a bakery, taking apart Petersen 8'x8'x8' oven, transporting it, and then rebuilding it at another location. I am having problems with this dayton agriculturual fan motor which uses a pully to rotate the beds inside the oven. The motor is rated to work at 115 or 230 and can go forward and in reverse.
This is all the information I have: the switch I am wiring it to looks almost exactly like this one, http://www.electricmotorwarehouse.co...yton/2X441.jpg, there were 5 wires coming out of the electrical box on the motor. All the wiress coming directly out of the motor and into the box were yellow, except for P1 which was black. Then they were extended using all pink wires so I am going to assume that colors don't mean anything here. So, 4 pink wires and 1 black wire are coming to the switch. The wires coming to the switch are: P1, T8, T5, T3, and T2+T4. T2 and T4 were wired together inside the box on the motor and that's how it was originally. This motor is wired for 115 voltage, so in referring to the diagram I capped off T3 and pushed it aside. I tried many different combinations to wire them to the switch but I only get a humming noise. The switch needs to work the motor forward and backward.
Here is all the information from the motor:
HP 1/3 PH1
FR56 Enclosed Teao Max AMB 40c
Volts 115/230 H2 60 DUTY Cont
Amps 5.0/2.5 SF 1.25 SFA 5.6/2.8
Low Volts Diagram:
P1- ungrounded line
P2, T8, T3- Tape
T2, T5, T4- Line
I appreciate any help on this. I need to return tomorrow morning to try and take care of this.

First I'll say, it sounds like your low voltage diagram you posted is for high voltage. Normally for low voltage 1,3,8 go together to L1 and 2,4,5 go to L2.
I guess this motor could be different, you never know.
