Use the paper clip symbol on the tool bar to upload directly here or upload to a free share site and then post the private links they provide here so they can be accessed.
Let me know and we can continue
Ok, thanks. The pictures are uploaded so something worked
The Label states this with the wires on 230 volts:
1.White and Black to White cord lead
2.Green and Blue to Red
3. Brown insulated and unused
Exact same wires as shown in the 115 volt just different connections, same total and colors
1. White, red and black to white cord lead
2. Green and Blue to Brown
All wire colors shown same as 230 volts
What is it I am missing here from your question?
it is the same exact wire colors and total when running on 115 volts.
It was wired for 115 volts, so tell me how the wires are connected?
Different than the motor label?
That sounds correct based on the 115 volt.
But they do not state Line #1 and Line #2 anywhere.
They use the term White for one connection to be sure those are connected to the neutral.
Probably to insure that the capacitor gets voltage on the others on Line #1
Line #2 is white normally with motors on 115 volts
Line #1 is the hot on 115 volts
With 230 volts, both are hot
Think of it this way.
You are just moving the red to the green and blue
and removing the brown from the connection all together.
Everything else stays the same
Ok, very good.
Yea, the plug needs to be matched and rated for 230 volts for sure.
If you have any additional questions, just let me know and I’ll be glad to answer them for you.Otherwise, if you have all the information necessary-please don’t forget to perform the rating, so that I may receive credit for assisting on the situation.It is appreciated
