Hello, I thought I wrote down how to reconnect the electrical source to the motor and speed switch but I just blew the electrical panel off. Can anyone draw or send a schematic of how to reconnect the source to the motor and speed switch?  I am lost when it comes to electrical.  I have a picture if it will help? Appreciate any help----Thank You






Fred

I'll see if I can help you. Green and Yellow are the head wires. You will need to hook one wire of the incoming power cord to either green or yellow. The other wire will hook to the red wire from the switch. The resistor or low speed to bypassed when high speed is used. That should help.

You want 1 wire from the resistor, 1 wire from the switch, and 1 wire from the motor (headwire) tied together with a wire nut. Then, the other motor wire goes to one of the power cord wires. The 2nd power cord wire goes to the switch, and lastly the 2nd resistor wire goes to the remaining switch wire. You need to figure out which is the "common" lead on the switch though 1st...using a multimeter determine which lead will give continuity to the other 2 when you turn the switch. The common wire in your case I think is the reddish one...the other 2 are the 2 switched legs.
