I'm totally a newbie to this but I'd like to get my problem fixed.
I have a chilling system made back in the '90 and the motor kind of died (rotating slowly but never going to full speed). Someone in my department has a similar system made by same manuf. that died for different reasons, so I thought I could swap motors.
The problem is (1) I'm not sure about the wiring and (2) the rating is different.
These are three wire motors (hence based on what I quickly read means there are two coils, a starter one and a running one, the starter one giving more torque). On both motors, two wires run together, and another one is independent. Colors do not match, and even if they matched, I would still like to properly wire based on knowing what the wires do.
Another issue is that the rating is different. The motor that died is rated for 16 microF, and I'm trying to replace it with a 8 microF one. I'm not sure if this means some capacitor may need to be changed accordingly.
Any suggestions would help. Thanks.
