    Hello and thank you for accepting me in this Forum.
    Could sombody help me with my Wolf Dakota compressor?
    Whilst in transit during a house move the black plastic box containing the Capacitors / soft start, assembly, and terminal junctions has been broken of the compressor and I have two diconected wires.One Blue wire from the power inlet, I assume a Neutral lead, and One black wire that comes from the White Cylinder on left hand side , which I assume is a Capacitor.
    Could sombody draw me a quick sketch of where these wires should be connected on the terminal block or even possibly put a photo of their own conections up?
    would be much obliged.
    Thanks in advance.
    Dave.

    Welcome to the forum, Dave :waving:

    Working tomorrow but if nobody else gets back to you in the meantime I can take a pic on Friday night / Saturday.

    Hope the rest of the house move was relatively uneventful :D

    that drawing should cover the connection from the blue wire in the supply lead and the wiring of the capacitors

    Thanks for previous help.Optima21.
    Going out to my compressor now I see that although very similar, the connector on my machine is wired quite differently to yours.
    As I only have two wires to reconnect I would rather just put them back where they came from, instead of swapping all the wires around.
    Thanks for your help though.Gonna try and bump post up again see if I can get someone to send us a pic of same unit.

    It is the same as Optima's.
    I noticed in his Threads from a few years ago that his is colured Blue, and that mine is Yellow.Which leads me to belive different manufactures made small changes to ancillary stuff like wiring and switches.
    Mine is quite different.
    I think I'm going to try and change all the conections round to match you and Optima's configuration. I'm not any sort of electrician but can read a diagram, just can't find one. It's a learning curve.
    once again' thanks for all your help. Much appreciated.

    just checked my instruction manual, it doesn't come with a wiring diagram (which might have been a help to you)

    I had a similar problem with the couriers smashing the leccy box off my tyre changer motor. I hate pointing people at huge tube vids but I found this one spot on.

    Done.Ioozed carefully at all the terminal posts until I found two slightly loose ones. I attached the Blue neutral wire to the top left terminal as advised by Optima, then by simple deduction the wire from the White Capacitor to the next post down which was loose.
    It works.
    Thanks for every body's help.
