Can anyone tell me how to wire this motor (from an AC)? Answered
I wired an AC in my room to the central heating unit, but the electronics inside were destroyed(only the motor worked). I've wired the motor to a dimmer switch (and of course the cap it had) but there are still 3 (or so) wires left. The way I've wired it i can control the rpm to a certain point but then it starts making a weird humming noise. From what i can('t) tell this thing is frequency controlled for lower rpm (or at least that's what a friend told me)
I've also wired a temperature relay in series to the dimmer switch so it stops when it starts blowing cold air.
So, i was wondering what am I supposed to do with those extra wires, it doesn't say anywhere what they are/do I don't know if you can see it clearly in the pic. the motor runs on 220V (well I don't know what the voltage is after the dimmer.) It says 220V on the motor but when I run it on that voltage for about 20-30 minutes it gets REALLY hot. (and the voltage in my room is really low, about 200-210 V sometimes it goes up to 220V)
So, the question is have i wired it correctly or should i make some sort of controller for it.
Thanks in advance!
(Also this thing heats up the room in no time, when the input temperature is about 30-40C)
