Can a garage door motor be connected directly to AC? Answered
I have a garage door motor than I would like to use to make a ball mill but I'm unsure if it will even work. Will it run if I connect the red and blue wires to an AC current or do motors ONLY work DC? The white wire is ground right?
Also, if the motor originally used a "motor starting capacitor" will it still work without one since it doesn't need to lift a heavy load anymore?
