I am trying to circulate air in my house that is heated with a free
standing oil furnace. I came across a squirrel cage direct drive
blower at a surplus store for $3 so I thought I would give it a try.
The problem is that I have no clue how to wire the motor. So far I
have found out that it is a "permanent split capacitor" motor.
Does anybody know how I could look up the wiring "pinout" for the
motor? It is further complicated by the fact that there are 7 wires
coming out of the motor of various colors so it must be a multi speed
There is a label on the motor that even states the Cap. value of the
running capacitor but no info. about what color wire does what.
Two wire "bundles" comming out of the motor.
One has two purple and one black wire.
The other has one each of red, yellow, orange, and brown.
Since this is a 220V motor with a running Capacitor it needs at least
Hot #1, hot #2, neutral, 2 wires for the capacitor. That leaves two
extra so I am assuming a 3 speed motor.
Tag on the motor reads:
Emerson Motor 1/3 hp 220V 60Hz
model number K55HXFLC-9812
part number 199C0301
Finally, this motor is out of a Lennox system.
