    Re: National BE Motor

    Dual-voltage... and it's a National??? Never saw one of them. I've seen GE/Westinghouse units that were dual, but not a Nat'l. All the ones I've seen were one voltage, 110v or 220v, but couldn't be changed from one to another.

    Need some more info... if the spec/ratings plate is still intact, please post all the data contained on the plate.

      Is it a Quality/Leeson(blue) ?
      So it goes.

        The Franklin replacements for the Nationals are also dual voltage, but are equipped with a SSSS. So I’m assuming this is not the motor he is talking about.

        Need some more info. Your problem might be the cycle rating (ie 50hz/60hz) of the motor compared to the SS you are trying. What type of SS are you trying?

          Just remember, all you are doing is replacing the points and powering the switch.

          This oughta do it.

              The only time that National B.E. motors become dual voltage is when they been rewound and you request them to pull the extra wire in the stater

              someone before you must have done that

                Quality/Leeson National Combi motor rebuild to Be motor(220/110V), when I was out of Be motors.
                Like Chad said : it's only three windings, some wires and a switch....(and an added capacitor in this case)
                So it goes.
