how to wire a baldor L3514 to a 6 pole drum switch single phase 115 volt. switch when in fwd poisition poles 123 and 456 connected. in rev 124 and 356 connected. motor has 9 leads and leads 5 and 8 are used for reversing.
sorry took so long to get back to you here is the switch but looks like you figured it out. there is a power disconnect between power and the switch
Where does the common wire get connected? pole 5 on drum switch?
What is your meaning of "common wire"?If you mean the neutral side of the 120 volts, NO, it will blow the circuit if connected anywhere on the switch.
I had used my 220 volt original diagram for my beginning point and left a label which I now have removed with the new diagram below. It may have been misleading.
Look at the power from the 2 pole switch in the diagram.You have 120 volt power .The neutral wire connects directly to the motor at T1 and T3, so you will have 2 wires under the wire nut--neutral, T1 and T3.The rest is there in the diagram on their connections to the drum switch.Hot wire from breaker-#1T4 and T2- #2T5-#3T8-#4No wire-#5T9-#6
