Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.
Can you post the photo of the configuration?
and the diagram may be on the motor nameplate?
Are the leads numbered? I have looked for a schematic and many of the foreign motors are difficult to obtain.
Appears we lost you on line, please post when you are able to return and lets try to get you operating. Thanks

Ok, got the pictures, let me check them out
did you received the drawing
Yes, that is yours correct? That is not on the motor?
that is mine as the motor is currently wired
trying to search my data base for a 6 lead dual cap motor right now
this is a single phase , correct?
ok, I know the wiring shows it wired that way, just being sure as so far only the 3 phase motors have the U,V,W leads. Still searching
with a standard US motor, you swap the red and black leads or T5 and T8. Much different here
the motor is new and runs very well on 220, the manufacture of the pump it is running said to change the shorting bars to horizonal if vertical and vice versa
it came with a pump?
Maybe the one shorting bar V1 to U2, moving it to V1 to U1?
and they had a pump backwards?
ok, I do know the motor is IEC (international wiring) so looking further now
found the motors nameplate
as the motor is currently wired, my drawing doesn't seem to match either of their diagrams
correct, that is what is confusing
They show the caps between V1 and Z1 and Z1 and V2
who installed the jumpers? or were they factory?
thats why I came to just answer
doesnt match the nameplate
I agree, plus where is the input connect on the first diagram
I only see one leg
it would be on the U1 as the second diagram
The key to reversing is swapping the field connections, that is why the crossover bars being moved
in US motors the line connections do not change, just swapping 2 field wires
same here, motors operate the same just different way of wiring
looking at the nameplate, I do not understand why the cross over bars were not in the same locations? Confusing when it comes from the factory different
Why is the u1 and u2 coil leads smaller than the others?
probably the better question, is why are the other leads so big? only 15 amps
the smaller leads match what most motors have
what the pump dealer told you matches the nameplate
just why it doesnt match the way it came in is odd
so what do you propose? Rewire per motor diagram 1 and see what happens or diagram 2
found something, just a min
or switch input from w1 to u1 on my drawing
ok look at this
where do i connect 2 cap
makes me believe to move those jumpers to the U1 to V1 and U2 W2 positions
Like the nameplate states
you have not moved the cap wires have you?
ok, dont move any internal wires, they connect already through the connections in place no matter which way the jumpers go
Thats the only recommendation I can come up with at this point. I always follow the nameplates on any motor
even though this one had the jumper bars in the wrong places compared to the nameplate
would you move the cap to match the diagram also or just the jumper bars
there 2 caps correct?
sorry yes there are two
and they are not connected like the nameplate?
can you follow all 4 wires off the caps?
yes, but the caps are sealed. Can't see + or minus. They are colored one brown wire other is blue. both caps are the same
if it is wire like the nameplate, there is nothing to move,
if they are 2 wire caps, the orientation doesnt matter on wires
I assume that name plate lead Z is our W the capsare currently attached between W2 and U1 and W2 and U2 not W1
or z1 as shown on diagrams
ok, neither matches the nameplate, this is becoming a problem since absolutely nothing matches
yes I totally agree
I personally cannot believe they shipped it out so confusing and incorrect. I would talk to the ones that sold it to you personally
I prefer not to give any recommendation with all the wiring not per the nameplate. I do not wish to have it void any warranties etc.
I always go by nameplate on any US motor, but this one is very confusing and I can see the delimma
ok, I will try again to contact the manufacture in china, thanks for trying
Wish it made better sense, I hate to be stumped
I will investigate further on my end as well
I'll let you know what happens. I may just wire it per diagram and try it, how do i connect back to you to let you know results
Just bookmark this page and come back anytime
Our conversation stays, it is not just a live thing
Finally rx drawing from manufacture
