    No, something is not connected right. It should be able to burn like the sun. Recheck connections one-by-one... and make sure you don't have a broken lead or terminal from the back of the terminal...

    Hi B.!

    Yeah, the fan motor connections are frequently landed on the BACK side of the terminal strip.

    MY experience has been that it's best to just very-carefully-snip off those wires, rather...

    The reason why, is pretty fascinating.

    A control transformer has a primary winding, magnetics, and secondary winding combination which is intrinsically capable of transmitting ONLY_SO_MUCH_POWER. ...

    I've never had any circumstances with my conversion needing a gearbox... spindle driven 3:1 ratio with a Gates Polychain... doesn't really matter what speed it's running at, there's no want for more...

    Set the VFD to RAMP UP, and do it as QUICKLY as you can, without putting too much a hurt on your mains.
    Set the VFD to NO RAMP on shutdown... just drop out... do NOT attempt to control the stop...

    I will grant this post with credit for making some clearly true statements, but:

    It has been a long time since I converted my 10EE to VFD, but when I was running the M/G with backgear like yours, my gearbox had bad seals (aka 'automatic belt oiler')...

    This is exactly what I went through with the 25hp Kohler Command on my Bobcat ZTR... it ate clutch switches and regulator/rectifier modules.

    I installed a 1N4007 across the clutch, and solved...

    On a much, much larger scale, the 10hp blower on my grain bin's dryer is a 3ph motor. It was built, however, from the git-go, to be powered by a single-phase overhead farm feeder. The magic box on...

    It's not unusual for a guy to set up his single-phase shop with a three-phase panel, where the two 'mains' feed straight in, and the RPC feeds the third. I've helped friends do this, and 'my'...

    Jerry, I think you're doing great with this build. Design wise, you're certainly not undersizing your materials. If there's any 'weakness', it'd only be weld penetration, and I think you're laying...

    It probably is NOT a case of mixer adjustment, as propane mixers respond to vacuum regardless of state of engine tune. They generally only have one adjustment (power) which only has effect at full...
