I have a single phase 115/230 volt leroy-somers motor without wiring diagram. It has european style wiring block. I need to know if it is configured for 115 or 230v at this time.
Jraef, the motor tag states 208-230/440v 3 phase. No diagram anywhere on the motor It has 9 wires. So i Ohmed the windings to determine I had DELTA. Based on this, I rewired for 230v. Ran perfectly fine for approx 2 mins. Staryed smoking, smeeled like dust, not electrical. I allowed it to run until I blew a fuse and it single phased.

Single-phase 220-volt AC motors are really two-phase 240-volt motors, especially when compared to three-phase 208-volt motors and single-phase 120-volt motors. This is because the motor's single phase actually operates on the difference between the two 120-volt phases that comprise the residential 240-volt input.
