  • Westinghouse Motor Switch Wiring

    Hey guys,

    I have a motor switch that some of the wires were crossed on. Does anyone have any advice on how to wire the switch.

    I just need to know which wires from the motor plug go to which section on the terminal board.

    I also need to know which wires go from the stator to which posts on the terminal board.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I can’t help you as I don’t have Westies. Is there any reason that you can’t open up a known good one and take it from there?

          Oh wait, you want to connect the combo plug to the terminal board. Sorry.

          Nil - White - 2
          X - Black - 4
          Center - Yellow - 3
          Y - Brown - Brown lead from stator
          Z - Red - L1

          You may notice that all terminals except #2 (white) will already have wires of the same color going to them.
          You will sometimes also find a little diagram inside the plug housing.
          The yellow wire's connector to terminal 3 is very close to the end bell - make sure it's bent in a little so it doesn't touch.

              These are nice drawings Chad. I really like your new one of the Westinghouse BE motor (Carl emailed it to me).

              Come to think of it, Pat hasn't specified whether he's got wiring trouble with a combo or a BE motor........

                Rrev, lol good point... I assumed the combo, as it is a bit trickier when it comes to the motor that and only 1 out of the 12 centers I worked in actualy had BE motor plugs. The rest just had femail spaid terms on the power wire that pluged directly into the board.

                  Thanks, Ray. Sometimes it's really difficult putting on the solid-state switch for the first time. I want to make it as plain as possible.
                  Will be doing GE & Matsu****as and all the combos in similar fashion.

                  In Pat's case, I surmise it's a combo because of this:

                    They are combo motors. I know look at other maotors. There is such a small space I have a hard time with this.

                    It has been solved. I took another motor off and put them both on the bench and looked and found my mistake.

                    My eyes are not as sharp as they used to be.

                    These posts really help!!!

                      I would strongly recommend using potential relays for the westinghouse combo motors. There is less wiring inside the stator and the motors run cooler. You can order grainger # 6X550 or call stahls. It might be best to order your first few froms stahls so you can get a wiring diagram and then finish with grainger. In the long run you will be saving money and will be less of a hassle. You wont have to deal with cent mechs not working or burned switches inside the stator. Just my 2 cents.
