bulding a generator? Answered

I have a 5sme22nj028a general electric motor and wanted to buld a generator.  It is 10 pin (not including earth). I have used a voltmeter to see what generate but there are many combonations and they all seem to generate. Also it is brushless. Please help.


Websearch says "That appliance motor is an oversize stepper
motor and the [drive] module likely had an array of high power fets driven by a
custom micro[controller]." Which would make sense given the unusually large number of connections.

Personally, I'd switch to another motor.
