    Model: S58NXMSR-6957
    1/4 HP, 230 VOLTS
    50/60 HZ, 2.2 AMPS
    1425/1725 RPM
    1 PHASE

    If an AC induction motor as it sounds, Not a good motor to attempt to turn into a generator.
    The modern Washing machine variety fitted with the Fisher-Paykel outrunner motors are a much better choice.
    Or any motor with a P.M. field.
    What are you trying to produce?
    Besides, that motor is only 1/4hp, so even if you could generate, it would not produce much power.
