Do you have a multimeter with an ohm setting?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
No but if you tell me what I have to do I will get one
Electrician: Sam I, Electrician replied 4 months ago

Since the numbering of the new leads doesn't match up with the diagram, like the motor shop should have done, we will need to test each wire between every other wire and note the readings. Do this with and without the capacitor wires connected.

Can you please tell me the exact settings and readings for each wire and their caraspondlng color
Thank you so very much
Electrician: Sam I, Electrician replied 4 months ago
You would put the meter on the ohm setting such as 300 to 500. Then you test between each wire and keep track of the readings and let me know what they are. Then I can try to figure out which wire is what
