Wired white to L1 and black to L2 and ground to the green screw. The connections in the drum switch were labeled with letters vice numbers so at first it was confusing until I made a diagram and put the numbers beside them. Home Electrical Codes Electrical Code Directory covering electrical codes for wiring an electrical circuit for an air compressor. Green earth ground is bonded throughout at the enclosures and the motor. The only ones i can find that is a close match is the 3 phase switches like this one ebay No. Tools Required: Basic Electricians Pouch Hand Tools and a Voltage Tester. I hope this helps you, Dave Was looking for a wiring diagram to re-hook up my compressor in my shop at home.
Thanks for any input, stp1stp Logged This is what you need, remember the circuit is two hots and both need to be switched off, a normal switch will not do that and will probably burn up at 30 amps. Hi, I recently purchased a cottage type bungalow and currently there is no central heating in the house only electric storage heaters. Thinking carefully about when you want something off, and when it should turn on, will help you as you visualize the wiring and apply the schematic to real world control. I'm new to this so please excuse any stupid questions. The your 2 lines go to the motor with one on the common terminal and one to the middle of the switch. The wiring I have is red,blk,green.
All actuators sold on this site will fit this switch. With a , you get the same hysteresis control using one switch and two wires instead of two switched and four or six wires. Any help will be greatly appreciated1 Martin Perhaps you have left and will never come back. Thanks again for all of your help. Old motor and wiring 8.
When I move the pre-wired block internal from the position for 230vac to 115vac and turn on the pump it shorts the and throws my breaker. You can also refer to the wiring guide on the side of the motor for wiring guidance. Note: In this example the wire coming from the bottom of the picture is going to the pump. More about Electric Wiring Wiring a Light Switch — Diagram 1 Electric Circuit Listing The size of the home electrical service panel is designed by calculating the square footage of the home and factoring in the code requirements for the electrical circuits that are required. Lastly your pool pump motor must be bonded in accordance with local electrical code requirements. The first switch L is set at the minimum liquid level desired in the tank. I have added pictures and they are as follows: 1.
Hello, I my experience is over 40years old and it did not include wiring a drum switch inline with a motor. Estimated Time: Depends on personal level experience, ability to work with tools and the available access to the air compressor circuit and electrical connection box. However, there are a number of situations where it would be more convenient to be able to switch a particular light on or off from more than one position. I also removed my old heat pump that sat adjacent to the motor. But you might also attach the wire to a steel pipe pounded in the ground as a precaution, since you can't be sure if the underground wire is attached to the grid. This is the same thing my old pump was doing, which is why I replaced it. So the number of wires doesn't tell you anything.
If more than one cable goes to any terminal, stick a tape tag on each core before you disconnect it and label it to show which terminal it was connected to. To avoid any trouble with electricity you best decision would be to make a rewiring. If the air compressor requires a 30 amp circuit, then you could conceivably install a male plug on the end of the air compressor cord and use the dryer plug. Separate contacts should be used for the motor and holding circuit. Not two additional wires, just two wires. It is wired in the back of the pump with yellow and white wires that are coming from L2 high and L4 low What I need to know is how to get power to that L4 port. So, if I have 220 coming into the timer, but only two wires coming out of the timer, what do I need to do? Because there is no longer a heat pump on that pad, what do you suggest I ground the motor to? When properly installed, your home electrical wiring is protected by a circuit protection device.
Let's say you conect the red wire to 3, and the black to 4. Pool Pump manufacturers commonly list these as 230V or 115V. The pump is part number 7-184949-22. Old motor and wiring 6. The wiring diagram to the right shows how the contacts and lamps are wired internally. From the wiring diagram, it looks as though I just power terminal 1 and then the black wire at the switch. It worked fine for a few days.
Then add a wire to the flexible conduit from the pump to the new switch and a short section of rigid conduit if needed between the new box and the timer. Rugged float switches don't grow on trees. For 115V the three wires are generally black hot , white neutral and green ground. Thanks InyoPools Product Specialist Dennis R. Right side of drum switch 4.
The motor was just rebuilt as it had stopped before this time and now I am trying to get it running again. InyoPools Product Specialist Dennis R. However, understanding the basics of float switch control wiring will help you work confidently no matter how powerful or complex the system. Important: If a new air compressor comes from the factory with a cord that includes a white wire then the motor is most likely wired for 120volts, however this should be verified. Do I need to secure the wires to a steel rod pounded into the earth? This switch body is meant to be paired with a rocker switch actuator. So what can we do to protect the pump motor? Thanks in advance for the help.
A dedicated circuit will be required for most larger air compressors. Also, you too may have been sent a bad motor but that seem unlikely. The Compressor takes 26 amps and multiple more on start. Intermediate switches have two pairs of terminals which are used to connect in the blue and yellow cable cores. If you want to simply be able to turn the pump on or off then you should understand that you will be over-riding other devices or critical equipment and this could cause a problem. The new pump is the same model as the old pump.
