    Default Baldor Motor / Furnas R44 Wiring Help

    I read a good post where OldMachinist was very helpful in providing a wiring diagram for a motor being wired to a Furnas R44 drum switch.

    My motor seems to have the same wire-colors, and in the same configuration. I provided the diagram on my motor.

    I just wanted to confirm that OldMachinist's diagram will be compatible with my motor as well?

    The first picture is from the original post where OldMachininst helped out.
    Second picture is MY motor's diagram.
    Then, comes my switch and inside diagrams.

    Brad,

    Pinniongear provided several diagrams in the thread "High school students need help wiring.." dated Nov 2,2011.

    I did not compare them to your setup but I was able to wire up my GE and Square D switch using diagram No 8.

    It will work. There are Nema standards for motor wiring numbers/colors and your motor complies. Here's the standard.

    Brad,

    I sketched out the wiring diagram for you. Not any cryptic electrician's diagram, but a sketch of the actual wires and how to attach them. Electricity for the non-electrical hobbyist, if you will. I can not post a picture, but I can scan it as a PDF file and email it directly to you. You can post it if you think it could help others muddle through wire schematics. Send me a PM with your email and I'll get it on its way.

    PS- Didn't I draw this up for you at a SBL users meet up near Reading? I thought it was you.
