I love this trade as it is extremely challenging. It allows me to utilize my training and knowledge experience to the fullest everyday.
There is never a day where I dont learn something new. It offers many challenges which makes it interesting.
I strongly urge young high school students who are interested in trades to seriously consider the electric motor/winding trade instead of construction electrician. It is far more challenging.

THE STATIONARY SWITCH IS A NORMALLY OPEN DEVICE WHICH IS CLOSED BY THE CENTRIFUGAL SWICTH. FOR SURE THE MAGNETIC FIELD DOES NOT OPEN THE SWITCH. IT IS STRICTLY A MECHANICAL DEVICE. You may have to
to reverse a single ph motor you have to reverse the 2 start winding leads coming from inside the motor. Looks like A1 and A2 are a combination of Run-start and the other run-start. You have to open
The rotor should have a centrifugal mechanism or rotory switch. As the motor starts up and reaches approx 75% of runningswitch, the centrifugal weights swing outwards and lift up the fibre disk that presses
I cannot say what size or tension springs to buy. usually the brake should engage 40 -50% of running speed once motor has shut down. SO its a trial and error method to gauge the spring tension. You
sounds like the motor is a dual voltage which can be externally connected for 115 or 230V. I dont have any wiring diags for this motor. There maybe one on the nameplate or inside the J box. Depending
