The motor may be run at = 110 or 220. There are four wires coming from the motor. They are clamped down = in a row. The two out side wires are longer than the two inside wires. It = will run with 110 on either the outside wires or the inside wires. If either is =   hooked to 220 the motor runs about twice as fast for maybe a minute then trips a 30amp breaker. The motor is Westinghouse. Should the extra two = wires be jumped together for proper 220 operation?   --part1_119.7ccf96d.2927ddc6_boundary Content-Type: text/html; charset=3D"US-ASCII" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit   <HTML><FONT FACE=3Darial,helvetica><FONT COLOR=3D"#800040" SIZE=3D2 = FAMILY=3D"SANSSERIF" FACE=3D"Arial Rounded MT Bold" LANG=3D"0">The blower = is rotating in the correct direction.

If not, if you'll give me the motor specs, (voltage, frame #, motor #, etc.) I'll look up the = correct wiring for you.   At 10:35 AM 11/17/01 EST, Mollerpo@aol.com wrote: > There are four wires coming from the motor.
