I'm trying to wire up a motor for my Myford ML7. The motor itself is a Crompton Parkinson 1/3hp with resilient mount. I realise it is a bit too small for the job but it's what I have available at the moment untill I can get another. The motor has four terminals and earth.
The top three are labeled A, Z and AZ. The bottom terminal isn't labeled. There is an obvious earth on the casing below the terminals. The cover plate says to connect the mains terminals to A and AZ so
I connected live from the mains to A and neutral to AZ. This allows the motor to run but only when I spin it up by hand.
Reading the ML7 owners manual, I found out that there is starting wiring and running wiring in the motor. Can anyone tell me how to connect the motor so that it starts and runs? I don't have a reversing switch so it only needs to run in one direction. Do I need to bridge across some terminals in order for the motor to start?
I have a couple of pictures of the motor but I don't know how to post them on this site. Can anyone help me with this also?
