how to hook up this motor


If I were you I will not use the hammer to hit the reset switch a firm push useally do the trick otherwise you can bust the disc.

This motour IIRC you do you have cenfuge starting switch so you will have to take 4 bolts off on the motour end and you have to try to see if you can push in the flying flange you may have to do that couple time to get it unstick and take a quick look at the switch concats as well.

And put it back together and it should goes once you turn the power back on.

But if you heard soft humming sound then the start switch is stuck otherwise you may have a bad start capaitor.

Merci,
Marc

If the starting switch is stuck it'll behave as if it's stalled (hum loudly and get really hot) so I'm calling that one unlikely.

That diagram is garbage, I can't see how anyone is sure what it shows, but there should be some wires from the coils themselves attached to some of the terminals...

One or more capacitors being missing will cause this problem.

So will making up a nonexistant problem just to challenge people.



We can go back and forth for the next month, there are still only three possible explanations for "power applied, motor does nothing, no noises or other signs of life":

1- OP has not wired motor according to diagram
2- Diagram is not correct for this motor
3- Motor is busted. (one or more open windings)

Since OP insists #1 and #2 are not the issue, there really is no question to ask or answer. The motor is broken and needs to be replaced.

emolatur.,

As I am aware this motour is CSCR set up and the way the OP did show the drawing I ingore it due it is not correct for CSCR conferation due the start and running windings are seperated and they are not interconnected at all.

but by the fluke if the run capaitor is shot the it will genrally prevent the motor to run.

As far for the OP did use the test meter to read the voltage but hard to say on the photo if he did land on *1 and *6 lugs that is the only way I will read the connection.

Merci.
