I was just given an old cast iron air compressor. It has a general electric motor on it.
Tri-clad capacitor motor.
Model 5KC184AG201 A
1 1/2 HP
It has ten wires coming out of the motor. The wires are numbered. They are currently connected as follows...
1/black from cord, 2/3, 4/white from cord, 5/10, 6/7, 8/9, green from cord is grounded to motor housing.
I believe it is set up currently for 220 because it has a plug on the cord that has two horizontal prongs ( - - ) instead of two vertical( | | ).
Does anyone know about this motor ? Is it actualy wired currently for 220, or 115 ? If 220, how do I wire it for 115 ?
Thanks in advance.
