Wiring an AC induction motor

Hi there, I just recently purchased a new motor that I was planning on using for a project. However, there was no instruction manual and trying to find information on the manufacturer's website has yielded nothing.

In short, I need to know how to properly wire up this motor so I don't burn it out.

Details :
A/C induction motor - split capacitor
Emerson model : K55HXHJT-4626
H/P : 1/10
Voltage : 120
Hz : 60
Amp : 1.4
Phase : 1
RPM : 1135/970

I have three contact wires, red, yellow, and blue.

Red to blue - 16 Ohms
Red to yellow - 15 Ohms
Blue to yellow - 30 Ohms

Ultimately, I intend to have this wired into a small switch box. Thanks for your help.

Wiring an AC induction motor

No markings on the wire? The red and blue are for the two speeds, and the yellow is the common. That's a generalization. The blue would be the ower speed, and the red the higher. You cap off the one you aren't going to use, unless you are using a switch to operate it at either speed. I suggest you contact where you bought it from to verify my suggestions....or take it to a motor shop and ask them.

Do you want it your way or the right way?
