Does this look like your motor diagram?
Yes, the motor diagram you included is exactly the same as on the motor I am using here.
Yes, the photo diagram you sent is exactly the same as the one on the motor I'm using.
Ok, and you want 120 volts connection?
through a drum revers switch?
Yes, 120v & drum reverse switch it is.
Ok give me a bit to work this up and I will give you a diagram.
Great! Sorry about that delay... got pulled away from the computer for a bit.
I need the Bremas model no. switch you have please?
If you have the diagram you wrote too...use the paper clip icon to load.
I gave directions above too. This would really help me. I'm having trouble with the wire colors and matching it all up with what you have.
Bremas switch no. CY0178262000
Here you go:
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX it a shot in the morning and let you know ASAP how we did. Never would have come up with that configuration by myself, that's for sure!
I think I need to make an adjustment , P1 needs to have the line connected to it,
I'll get back to you in a bit.
So with this motor, we need to take the hot lines in, the black and white, and bring them to the motor, not the switch. The hot black goes right to P1 & the white goes to P2 & orange. Then follow my diagram for the other wires
Just checked in again before trying the connections you sent last night, glad I caught your revision frst. I'm headed out to try it now with your revised instructions. As I understand it we're bypassing the switch with the hot lines and taking them straight into the motor.
Yes, P1 needs to get hot, then the other leads out to the rev/fwd switch. We may still need to change a jumper or tow on the switch. I see they're are several jumpers on it.
All we need to do is switch the red and black positions with the two groups of wires.white, yellow & P2 , orange.
I'm very busy today and I will check back when possible. Remember, red and black switch positions to reverse. That's it. Hot to motor P1 lead
Well I found out why we're having so much difficulty trying to make the existing drum switch work with this motor - the switch is incompatible with the motor. Have to buy a new switch from Grainger, I'll see if I can send the wiring diagram over to you so you'll be able to help the next guy without the headache.
