Guess how many Amps this 220 VAC HVAC motor draws at 110 VAC?
After running a GE 5KCP392G M730BS fan/motor (salvaged from a
condenser) for a week at 110 VAC, and after all the naysayers said it
could not be done, I finally meaured the current.
There was no large insurge of current as seen on an analog 0-30 Amp
The spec on the motor reads 208-230 VAC 1.9 Amp
It has a run cap of 5 mfd/370 V
BTW The motor case was hot but I could still hold my hand on the metal
The motor starts easily and runs smoothly and quietly at 110 VAC
What is the Amp draw at 110 VAC?
