Hard to answer this one, Ellis, as I have no idea where the wires were to begin with.

And, how did the wires get disconnected.

By the way, the 5 HP is probably powered by 220 volts, and you want to be real careful with that voltage.

So, where are the wires coming from that you want to reconnect?

Post a comment here, and maybe an electrical type can give you some help.

Cheers,

Bill

I HAVE TO CHANGE FROM 230 TO 460 VOLTS

by ROBERT
(MALVERN PA)

THERE ARE WIRES ON MY COMPESSER THAT ARE MARKED INSULATE AND THEY ARE WIRED INTO THE LINE WIRE 1,2 AND 3

I HAVE TO CHANGE FROM 230 WHICH IS FACTORY WIRED TO 460 USING THE DIAGRAMS

I KNOW THE NUMBERS TO USE

DO I HAVE TO SWITCHED THE INSULATE WIRE TO OR DO THEY STAY IN THE SAME SEQUENCE

ALSO THE MODEL NUMBER FOR MY COMPRESSOR IS 4ME98A{AGM07}

Robert, sorry guy, I don't have the qualifications to advise on something like this. Heck, some days I don't have the qualifications to tie my work boots!

In any case, I have posted this on the "electrical troubleshooting" page, and I sure hope that someone with the know how can comment to help you out.

Cheers,

Bill

using GFCI outlet

by gary

When I plug in my sears 1hp, 2gallon compressor into the GFCI in the garage it will sometimes not turn the motor over to start running. It just Chugs, I unplug it and turn it off, once I do that it starts. Should I not be using the GFCI, thats all I have in the garage

Gary, as far as I know, a ground fault interrupter will trip off the power in milliseconds if the power flow downstream of the GFI plug goes to ground.

So, I doubt the problem is the interrupter, I think the problem might have to do with low power flowing from the switch. Anything else using the same circuit as this plug in the garage.

It could also be something else... so, try this. Unplug the compressor, and drain all the air from the tank. Close the drain and plug the compressor back in. Does it start OK? Post a comment here with a response, if you would.

Cheers,

Bill
