I'm pretty new at this. I was able to salvage the motor of a washing machine. How will I know if I can reverse the rotation of it? And how will I be able to reverse it if it does?
Also how will I know if this is an induction motor? Single Phase or 3 Phase?
It doesn't say anything like that on the name plate.
Here are the details on the name plate.
Welling YXB170-4B RMOTS0007PLZZ
1.4A CL E
FOSHAN WELLING WASHER MOTOR MANUFACTURING CO LTD.
It has some sort of diagram on the right.
11 uF/450V then BLUE(CCW), BLACK, RED(CW)
I opened a box where the wires go to and this is how it looks like inside.
Unfortunately when I opened it, there was a spring that jumped out and messed somethings inside. I tried to put things back together as best as I could but not really sure if I did everything right. At the moment, I would not dare plug it to an electric socket as I don't want it to blow up in my face or something :D.
Is there anyway to run this off using a battery? Hopefully this would be safer.
Appreciate it if someone to guide me thru it.
After messing up the box with all the gears, I'm a bit afraid of plugging it to the power since I'm unsure what will happen. Anyways, I would like to ask for some assistance. Here are a couple more images which I'm hoping to help me explain what I need to do.
In the image above, I labeled the objects based on my understanding.
A - Motor
B - This was the box that had the knob for turning the washing machine on.
C - Capacitor. Label says "SH CAPACITOR. SH.M 400 VAC 50/60Hz 11uF (-5/+10%) NUINTEK/KOREA".
The image above is a close up on the box (B in Figure 1.0). I labeled somethings that I have concerns with.
A - A metal that connects to a white wire that connects to the power (not sure if positive of negative)
B - A metal that connects to a blue wire that connects to the motor.
C - A metal that connects to a red wire that connects to the capacitor and motor. A black wire then connects the capacitor to the power.
The metals (Figure 2.0) B and C are currently not connected to metal A. I haven't tried it yet but my guess is if I plug this to power, nothing will happen since these metals (B,C) are not connected to metal (A). If I want to turn the motor on, should I have metal (B,C) connected to metal (A)? If so, can I connected them permanently?
If I wanted to reverse the rotation, should I connect the blue wire to the capacitor instead of the red one?
