230v flesher motor problems!!! Need Help!!

Discussion in 'Tanning' started by RWTAXIDERMY, Feb 23, 2012.

  1. I recently purchased a Foredom SR Flex Shaft Kit 1/6hp 230v motor for my Flesh-All Foredom hand peice. I ran new wiring and receptacle just for this equipment. The motor however will not operate in 230v, I can plug it into a 115v and everything works but the motor speed is slow. Anyone know what might cause it not to operate when connected to 230V ?
     
  2. The other phase or coil could be burned out. Try this, unhook the motor wires and test the resistance in ohm's. Then test the other side (other wire). If there is quite a diffrence or no resistance in one. The motor is bad.
     

  3. Why do you buy a motor like that on 230v ???? ,

    how many wires have the motor , 2 + ground or 3 + ground ..
