It also contains a drawing showing the various parts of the blower.   I scanned it and have it in pdf format if anyone wants a copy. The file size is 148k.   Olliff Weldon DIYAPASON-L: a Discussion list for owners and builders of their own Residence Pipe Organs.

Swank" <prswank@surfbest.net> Date: Wed, 08 Oct 2003 17:40:57 -0400   Hi John,   I bought one of the small blowers from surplus center.   It says in the instructions that it needs a 50 microfarad, 370 volt = running capacitor.   When I got the motor, it has two blue wires, one with a small white tag on = it.   The instructions say that the two blue wires go to the running capacitor.   When I got the capacitor, there is no difference between the two terminals =   on the capacitor.   I thought that there was always a positive and a negative on capacitors, but I see that I must be wrong.   Does it make a difference which terminal on the running capacitor goes to which blue wire on the motor.   By the way, there are the regular black wire, white wire and green wire to =   the motor, which I assume get hooked up the regular way.   Undecided in Baltimore, Paul R.

It doesn't matter which blue wire goes to which terminal of the capacitor. Motor starting/running capacitors are quite different from electrolytic caps, which do (as you said) have polarity markings on them.. Hook it up and have a ball!

White, black, and green are the usual neutral, hot and ground.   I like my blower though it is rather noisy but can be muffeled.   Great price for a fine blower.   John > Hi John, > > I bought one of the small blowers from surplus center. > > It says in the instructions that it needs a 50 microfarad, 370 volt = running > capacitor. > > When I got the motor, it has two blue wires, one with a small white tag = on it. > > The instructions say that the two blue wires go to the running = capacitor. > > When I got the capacitor, there is no difference between the two = terminals > on the capacitor. > > I thought that there was always a positive and a negative on capacitors, =   > but I see that I must be wrong. > > Does it make a difference which terminal on the running capacitor goes = to > which blue wire on the motor. > > By the way, there are the regular black wire, white wire and green wire = to > the motor, which I assume get hooked up the regular way. > > Undecided in Baltimore, > Paul R.
