I have a speedaire 4B233E that is missing it’s power cord - it is wired from the pressure switch to the motor , but I don’t see terminals marked for black+, or white wires for power in?

It really doesn't matter with 120V. One is always hot and 1 is always a common.

Usually the motor has a black and a white wire and I match colors, but if you have 2 blacks or any other color, it doesn't matter.

Just know that green is always grounded to the metal part of the switch. They usually have screws on it for ground.

That appears to be incorrect even for the motor, but I can't really tell from the pic.

Usually the "low" level is for the line cord, and the "upper" level for the motor.

Take a look here, and see if it helps:


Good luck.
