Is that how to wire it what’s line mean power in
I just wire
it how I was told in machine mart
They are morons then because if you move the bars to change direction you'll have a dead short across the mains :mushroomcloud:
Where's the 'Shakes head in disbelief" emoji?
Does this look right
Thanks for all the help I've got it running its not as quiet as my old one but it doesn't hum or make noise that you can hear to much over the change gears
Also note, CC counter clockwise CW clock wise rotation
That thing is an electric chair the way its wired
That's the reason I bought it it was going to be too much hassle for me to reverse the old one
Only if you sit on it
I can't believe I listened to someone from machine mart on how to wire a motor up
its not 3 phase at all its 240 v
I hardly think anyone would tell you to connect the earth to a winding
Honestly I asked in the shop so he took the cover off and said brown to brown blue to blue and yellow to yellow
Just to be sure, you have wired the earth to the casing of the motor?
Do you have RCD protection on the supply to that? It should have tripped out before!
Please go tell the manager at MM whoever told you that is Dangerous
Thats what i was wondering? i am guessing no rcd anywhere, so the earth was just working as a second neutral connection.
no rcd I've only used it for 15 minutes but it burnt a 13a plug and blowen the fuse this is since wireing it properly
What size and type of fuse/rcd protects the circuit it was plugged into? A 13a fuse will allow much more than 13a to flow for long enough to cause damage, i would of expected the upstream devise to fail 1st if the motor had a short.
I'd take it back!
