Pressure switch on Campbell Hausfeld air compressor
My dad just gave me his old CH 6.5 HP (VT627000AJ) air compressor. For some reason he disconnected the motor from the pressure switch and dose not remember how to reconnect it. The motor is a Doerr Merson Electric motor LR22132 model T368X8NJ1016 MFG # B69B.
There is no wire diagram. On the connecting plate there are only number that read 1,3 and 4 next to some copper poles, There is also poles 2 & 5 that have a jumper that is label L2. The 8 inch cable that connects the pressure switch to the motor has 3 cables, green (ground), white & black.
So with that said I have 3 possible wiring configurations.
1 & 3, 1 & 4 or 3 & 4. I’m thinking 1 & 4 but I would like to be sure.
