Wiring compressor capacitors

by Barry Barrett
(Magnolia TX , USA)

I have a Sears Craftsman Motor. Model #113.12440, CAT 1244, 5 HP, 1725 RPM ,230 Volts, A24.0 , MFG Model-F-9777-07-163.


It has 6 wires coming out of the motor. 2 for centrifugal switch, and 4 to the stator.

It has a reset switch and 4 capacitors. the wires coming out of the motor have no labels, tags or identification. so I don't know were to start.

It has a "Kellogg-American compressor pump. Model-331TVA. If I could find a diagram it would be great. I will need a picture. I would appreciate any help. Thank You very much.

A tough one, Barry.

If you can figure out who made the motor, either from a tag or from Sears parts, they may be able to help.

Otherwise, assuming you don't want to blow it up, and you have a good motor shop you can take it to, that's probably your best shot.
