Hi Everyone,

A friend from work gave me a dryer motor to try to get running. It is an emerson split phase motor. It has a yellow, blue and black wire. I'm assuming the yellow wire is through the start winding and the blue wire through the thermal overload and the run winding. Black wire to neutral. Yellow is to 5 on the switch, blue to 4 and black to 6. He wants to use this motor in his shop for a dust collection system. Can anyone help me with getting this to work without the rest of the dryer circuit. Thank you!

Steve

Assuming this came out of a Whirlpool made dryer and that yellow could be an off white, 4 and 5 are common and start and 6 is run.  Make you a cord and plug it onto 4 and 5, plug this cord into your 115 volt outlet,  holding the motor so it will not roll out of the room and the motor switch will switch it to run.  If this is a regular domestic motor it is 115 volts.  If this is not a Whrilpool dryer motor, sure would help us if you tell it what it came out of.

Thank you for your reply. He has the motor and vent pipe mounted to a base so the motor is not going anywhere. I took your advice and have nothing going on except a huming sound. Again, thanks for your help!

Do you know what this came out of???  The information may be incorrect that I gave you if it is not out of a Whirlool made dryer...Is it 115 volts???

And if you don't know what it came out of and you say it is still mounted in its motor cradle, send a picture and someone here will probably be able to recognize what brand it came out of and be able to help you.

Wow,

Thank you all for the responses. I won't be able to talk to my friend at work until monday, so I don't have an answer as to what manufacturer made the dryer. I have enclosed a picture and hope that helps. Thanks again!

Success,

I took the switch off and found the correct placement for the wires by color on the back of the switch. It works like a charm. Thank you again to everyone!
