Does anyone know anything about reversible induction motors? Answered
I have a squirrel cage motor from a tumble drier and don't want to wire it up wrong! I studied the timer switch and it looks as though there is a main power wire which is on most of the time, and this would periodically disconnect and another wire would briefly be connected instead. I assume this reverses the direction. I haven't switched the motor on yet, but if it turns out that it starts in a random direction, is there a way to guarantee it will always go one way?
