Reversing Rotation of a Westinghouse 1/2 HP CXJ Series Motor

10/12/2011 8:52 PM

How do you reverse the direction of a westinghouse 1/2 HP model CXJ Series Type FJ motor?

It has two line terminals and terminals 2-3-4-5

Which terminals do I reverse to change direction?

Thanks

Frank

No data available on-line for that old motor, so no way to tell. Some single phase motors cannot be reversed, most can. In those that can, you would have a lead numbered T8 and you would swap T5 and T8 to reverse the rotation. If T8 is not brought out to the connection box, this may be one of those that is not able to be reversed.
