Here is a photo if it helps


G'day guys,

I just pulled the cover off my motor which has the same model number.

i have attached a photo of the connections.

The grey wires running off to the right go to the overload switch.

The two purple wires from the starting capacitor are connected to the z1 and 5 terminals

Yeah, I am in Warwick in sunny QLD.

It was just luck I found your post.
My motor is misbehaving and so I am pulling it apart. It is on an old compressor which my grandfather has had for a long time. The motor has started to arc from some of the contacts in the back to the housing when the compressor turns off and this is tripping the earth leakage. I am not really sure what is wrong so I think I will go and have a look in some textbooks, improve my motor theory and then try and work out the issue.

I am glad however, that as a side issue, I was able to solve your problem.

Have a good one, Will

your points at the rear may be worn or just need fileing also when you
check the winding araldite them before you put the motor back together
let the araldite dry for a couple of days this will give you a nother 20yrs
lets now how you go also check the bearings if they are worn this puts
strain on your points when shutting down
bye the way iam bob from bega nsw
