  • Dryer moter for other uses

    hello I need to hook up this dryer motor to a normal outlet for the blower im doing this tittle project ,however im not great with electronic wiring. I have all the other electronic parts that came with it but haven't seen any of this before so I need a little help hooking this up ,correctly and safe. I made a diagram on paint program of how this motor is wired every wire is colored and shows from start to end. If this is not enought info I will be glad to put this in writing.

    Thanks

    I would have to look up the wiring diagram on the dryer and see what is the power and how it was hooked up, (i think that would be the easier way)

    also if any thing went to capacators and so on,

      Dryers run on 240V and 120V. the motor runs on 120 and spins the drum, that's all. So it's a 120V motor. You dont need any electronic components to run it. Just feed the motor with 120v and add a switch loop to turn it off and on. Unless your project goes beyond just running the motor? The heating elements of course needs a 240v circuit.
