  • Motor Test Plug Question

    I need to make a motor test plug for a 8270 combination motor. I have the plug. What color wires from the plug do I hook up to the black white and green on the power cord I have?

    Thanks.

    Unless you are just making a jumper to extend your table or sweep to bench motors, you will need more than wires. I made a box with the caps and contactors in it. This way you can test both directions as well as breaking. Just energising the motor wont really tell you much.

      Power cord? You will need a male receptacle #000-027-655(approx.$68.61) and a female plug #000-027-66(approx.$66.49)& (5 wires) just to jump off of one your current machines. I haven't seen Stahl's Tuffy Motor Tester #785-000-070-TMT (70's) (approx.$129.95)

        To add to Jim's comment about the test box, there is a schematic in the 82-70 electrical manual for making a combination motor test box.

              I have a test box with a potential relay and a toggle for a mechanical switch use.

              I will sell it for $100.

                I have wired a motor plug to an extension cord before. It works fine on a motor with the standard mechanical switches inside the motor. I just can not remember how I wired it up before.

                  <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">Impossible to do for a combo motor without adding capacitors/resistors to mimic the circuit. Also, If you have potential relays installed (in the wireways) this too would need to be put in circuit. Therefore, you would need a box to house these components, unless you are on a suicide mission.

                  You can however make a BE plug that just plugs into the wall because all the components are installed on the motor. I have one made up as an emergency assy that comes in handy incase of bad wiring, burnt contacts, bad relay or switch.

                  I have a simple diagram for a combo tester, if anybody wants to PM me with their email address or wants to host it for posting.
