Hi Guys, got a problem, please help.
I acquired an old compressor that has "done it's time" however, someone has cocked up the motor wiring. It's a Cima type 90/2, 2 pole, 220V single phase induction motor. I've checked the coils (ohmmeter) and they are fine, no grounding, etc. Here's what I have.
There are 4 wires coming out of the stator, 2-Red and 2-White (all disconnected). The starting Capacitor is disconnected but appears to be fine (charges and holds voltage), the connector block (6 connectors, marked U, V, W, U2, V2, W2) has cracked into 2-pieces and is disconnected. The incoming supply is also disconnected.
Does anyone have a clue as to how to put this back together?
PS I have replaced the bearings on the Rotor and checked the alignment of Rotor/Stator, all is fine. This compressor would probably still work if someone hadn't started poking around with the wiring, all it needed was bearings, old ones were seized.
