Hello, I'm looking for some assistance, I want to wire my Air Compressor for 220 but Sears/Craftsman doesn't support this older unit. At least they cant provide me the wiring diagram that was available when it was purchased several years ago. Currently its wired for 110, I have pictures if needed and will describe which wires are attached to which terminal. I would really appreciate it if someone more familiar with 220 can tell me which wires need to be swapped around! Thanks, Mike

Terminals are labeled A. B. & C. PIC 1

A has BLK wire (T5) from the motor w/BLK wire from BLK capacitor
B has Brown (J11) from motor with brown from white capacitor
C has 2 red wires (T8) attached to TERM with a red wire from the white capacitor

Connectors on the motor PIC 2

BLK from motor wired to TERM 1
Orange to TERM 2
Blue to bottom TERM doesn't appear to be labeled.

Doug, thank you for looking in to my post but I'm all set now. After looking it to further I've discovered that this is not the original 110/220 motor. It's a replacement wired for 110 only. Mike

Does this thing have a model number on either the compressor or the motor itself?
