  • Assistance wiring a Dayton Drum Switch

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm trying to wire up a 1 hp Dayton motor for 110volts with a dayton drum switch. Unfortunately, I'm a little inept with wiring. Can someone please help me figure out what leads need to get wired into the drum switch.

    I've attached some photos of the motor wiring diagram and drum switch.

    Thanks

    Rodger

      Yes. 8 and 5 should be the start winding. P2 & T3, T2 & T4 are the main winding.

      The Dayton motor folks mess you up a bit by putting the protector (P1, P2) where they do, wired-in.

      I think I would reverse the start and main windings on their diagram, putting start where main is, and main where start is. Then connect P2 to the switch at terminal 2, connecting that power line to P1 instead so it goes through the protector before the switch. That should keep the protector in-circuit as you want it.

      I have been flipping back and forth between pics by memory, instead of drawing it, so if anyone sees a problem with what I wrote.... holler.
