SOURCE: I need to build a single phase to three phase

You will need a rotary converter for this, or a single phase motor. A three phase motor absolutely cannot be made to run on single phase otherwise.

Yes, this compressor will work with single phase motor. Stephen.

SOURCE: 3 Phase 7.5 HP air compressor overheat, runs on and off, we found it has no capacitor, what is the correct capacitor needed.

There could be several reasons why your unit is "overheating". Is the motor tripping the circuit breaker ? Is it the motor or the compressor that is overheating? I need more description of the problem. 3 phase motors do not have capacitors. Is the compressor turning the correct direction? Is the supply voltage correct? Is the power cable the correct size? Do you have the correct type and quantity of oil in the compressor?

Why does condenser have a dual capacitor and a single capacitor in the same unit?


Hard to say exactly, but most heavy duty electric motors have a start capacitor as well as a run capacitor. There may also be an overload protector you are confusing with a condensor.

Replace compacitor on Carrier 5 ton 3 phase AC


Your 3 phase unit should not have a capacitor. I'm guessing it's single phase. If it's a single capacitor than the compressor should not be going to it also. To test the motor, common to start plus common to run should equal the ohms you get between start and run. For instance, 1.2 ohms+ 2.2 ohms= 3.4 ohms. Follow the wiring diagram on the inside of the door, send model number!!

I,m not exactley sure how to connect the wiring to the capacitor,on a three phase unit,or one that is wired for three phase (a/c).


If it is a three phase motor then it will not require a capacitor. Residential A/C compressors and fan motors have 3 wires coming out of then but they are not three phase, they are still single phase. If you are working with a residential system then you should have one wire that is common, one wire that is the start winding, and one wire that is the run winding. To connect it, L1 from the contactor would connect to one side of the capacitor. Connect the run wire to the same side of the capacitor. Connect the start wire to the opposite side of the capacitor. The common wire will connect to L2 on the contactor.

I would like to connect a pressure switch to the motor starter


hi! there, single phase compressor motor need a starting capacitor base on the rated capacity in horse power,you can check this on the tag of the compressor motor how many horsepower was indicated,it should be for single phase motor starting capacitor has a capacity of micro farads.for a 1 horsepower = 15 to 18 micro farads stating capacitor if you have more than 1 horsepower you can basically proportion the value of capacitor you need or ask the dealer how much capacitor you need on your motor the connection of pressure switch with a four terminal should be connected both on common line L1 and running capacitor line L2 .if you open the cover of pressure switch there are 4 terminals,2 terminals are connected when normally close or no pressure they connected on series connection on the common line one terminal connected to common line of the compressor and the other terminal on L1 to the pushbutton switch to L1 supply line.the 2 other terminals also connected in series withe line capacitors L2 to yhr power supply line.hope this will help you a lot.just rate my fix thanks a lot.

I'm trying to figure out how to wire a 5hp motor


Go to the website for the motor manufacturer- it will show how these capacitors are to be wired. You'll need the motor model number.

How do reverse polarity on rudd ac compressor


Is this a 3 phase compressor? If it is it will have markings L1 - L2 - L3 and it will not have a run capacitor, then just reverse any two compressor wires. If it's single phase then you can't without Burning up the start windings, it will be marked C - S - R and have a run capacitor, these markings are on the Compressor.

Voltage 1phase or 3 phase 240 volts BTUs M# 585epo36o75


Looking at the model number, it appears to be a 3 ton. (36,000 btu) Most all residential units are single phase and most all commercial are 3 phase. One way to tell, look to see if the compressor has a capacitor. 3 phase never use capacitors on the compressors as they are not needed. Some residential units have a "Dual" capacitor. That is, it has 3 terminals, 1 common, 1 for condenser fan motor, and 1 for the compressor. Also, this info should be printed on the unit's lable.
Good Luck and hope this helps.
