    take apart the contactor if you can and check out the contacts. If they are pitted you may be able to dress them with a file to get by for a while, but you will probably need a new contactor.

    Thats exactly what I ended up doing, with a 60a fused disconnect on the supply side and a 30a breaker on the machine side. The tap burner runs fine in this configuration.

    Referring back to the original post, this transformer is going to be used solely for this single 460v load only, no need for any other output. in its original application there WAS a lead running...

    Before connecting that 5/6 jumper to ground, for the heck of it I put a voltmeter between that conductor and the ground coming from my supply and got 9.6v. Is this a problem as they will all be...

    Thanks, that makes sense to me. Just out of curiosity what amperage draw might I expect on my supply side when there is no secondary load on the transformer?

  21. Dahlander motor rotary cam switch- off between speeds or not?

    I can get switches configured 1-0-2 or 0-1-2 to control my 2 speed single winding (dahlander?) motor, I see both types. Does the power need to be off to change between speeds or no? I was ready to...
