How Do You Reverse a Single Phase Motor?

Answer

Reversing a single phase motor requires that one reverse the polarity of the 'start' winding as it relates to the 'ruin' winding. Start by turning off the circuit breaker. Using a flat blade screw driver take off the plate covering the electrical connections and locate terminals marked T5, T6 and T8 and reverse the wires attached to them. Replace the terminal covers and replace the fuses. It is also advisable if you consult a motor engineer to help you out.
