So, I dutifully tried to make the change, but now it does not run. I’m hoping someone can tell me my mistake.
Here’s what I did: The motor had 2 schematics on it, for “low voltage” and one for “high voltage.” The high voltage schematic showed this: wires #2/3/5 together; wire #1 alone (which I found to be connected to the cord’s brown wire also); wire #4 to “line” (I found #4 to be connected to the cord’s black wire); wires #J/8 together. This is, in fact, how it was wired when I opened it up.
The second schematic showed this: wires #1/3/5 together (which I left also connected to the cord’s brown wire); wire #4 to “line” (which I left connected to the cord’s black wire); wires #2/J/8 together. I reconnected things following this schematic (in other words, I moved #2 from 2/3/5 to J/8 and connected 1/brown to 3/5; I left 4/black alone).
[As a sidenote, the motor also indicated that “to reverse rotation interchange #5 and #8”—since #s 5 and 8 had been switched in the existing wiring I found, and therefore rotation had already been reversed, I also treated #5 as #8…including all of the descriptions above, where I’ve already substituted 5 for 8]
Then, I switched the male plug. The 220V plug had green, black, and brown wires going to it; green connected to “G”, black connected to “Y”, and brown connected to “X”. I put on a new 110V plug and connected the green to the green screw, the black to the brass screw, and the brown to the silver screw.
It does not turn on now. Please help! I really appreciate it. I don’t have much money and really need to get this working…
