Dennis, that model may be a 3 Phase motor, and if so, you'll need to get a pro electrician's help with that.

Any other views?

Cheers,

my 10 hp speedaire compressor blows fuses

by hal
(long island ny)

i work in a 22000 sqft building and we have one 10 hp speedaire compressor madle number 1wd74 that runs hot and blows our 30 amp time relay fuses we have changed the fuse and had a electrican look at it he says the amp is a little high what can couse the fuses to blow almost every day thanks

Hi Hal. What will always cause a fuse to blow is if the circuit is pulling too many amps.

Sounds to me like this is happening in your case.

Make sure the power to the compressor is clean (not using the same circuit that has other major electrical implements drawing power too). If it is, and assuming that it's the compressor that is creating the problem, have a load test on the capacitor(s) and motor to see if any or all of these are failing.

Cheers,

Bill

Any information on a Model 2Z262B Speedaire?

by Buster Norris
(El Dorado, Ar.)



Looking for any information on a Model 2Z262B Speedaire. I know it is OLD, but I can't find any reference to this model anywhere. Any help would be greatly appreciated. A friend brought it to me and it needs a little TLC. Just need to know if parts are around before digging into it too deep, lol.
Thanks and Have a great day.

Good luck, Buster. If Grainger can't help, then maybe a kind visitor can.

Cheers,

"FINALLY" got to talk to an engineer at Dayton, and he looked in his 'old paper files' and found some information on the compressor, it was built in 1971 and was made by Champion, got my gaskets and putting it back together!!! Tks.

Speedaire 2Z262B
by: Buster

Speedaire doesn't have a clue!!!! I found a pump in an old, 1987, Grainger book I had that looks exactly like it and matches the mechanical specs. It is made by Champion and I did find a parts breakdown, waiting on whether the parts are available.

Speedaire 5F225 - how to determine a Micro-Farad.

by Bill Dickerson
(Memphis)

I need a stater capacitor for this unit and I have no old one to reference.

This is a 1 hp 3450 rpm 115/230 volt 17.8/8.0 FLA

I can find some online but I have idea how to determine a Micro-Farad.

I have a wild guess that it should be about 30 MF's

Can you advise?

Bill says....

Nope. But I expect someone can. How about it folks. Can you help out Bill?

Cheers,

Bill

Capacitors
by: Buster

It depends on if you have one cap or two on the motor. If you have only one cap, it should be a black plastic case in the range of 300 to 500 mfd @ 250 to 330 volts for starting. If you have two caps on it, one is for starting and one for running, the start is usually a plastic case, in the range of 300 to 500 and the run will be a metal case and from 20 to 40 mfd @ 250 to 330 volts. Hope this gives you an idea of what you need.
