Welcome. My name is ***** ***** would be glad to assist.

Can you provide a picture of the motor wiring compartment with the cover removed for review?

Motor nameplate also if possible?

Dayton items are difficult to acquire info online due to non published material

Let me know and we can continue,

Thanks
