Hello Robert, my name is***** me try and set you up with a wiring diagram for you to install this switch. Would you be able to upload a photo of the motor diagram? Also what is your supply voltage? And can you see how the switch works? Are the 6 terminals in the middle common to the top 3 terminals with the switch is pushed forward, and the bottom 3 when it is pushed reverse? Any numbering on the screws on the switch?
Yeah single phase fwd rev motors are a bit tricky for sure. Is there no T8 wire from the motor. Usually single phase motors you just have to interchange 5 & 8 to change rotation. Probably what that cross is the jumpers is
Do you know the model number of the motor
Is this how the switch is?
OK cool, so we're on the same page with the switch.
I just cant see the diagram on the motor
Does show on the motor anything about cw or ccw rotation?
OK. Have you had the motor running before? without the switch
how many hp? what is it for?
Is the L1 and L2 at the motor? or just T1-6
OK, so 120v comes into the motor box and then gets taken to the switch from there
Well, this is how I would wire it up normally. The only thing i can guess is T6 is T8 ? 1+3 and 1+4 are for sure windings, so i could only assume 5+6 get swapped.
Shouldn't blow a breaker, it might not turn tho, or run only one direction
