Small 24v Ac motor with 3 wires - help!

Discussion in 'Electronic Basics' started by November Soul, Sep 1, 2004.

  1. I have a small AC motor which has 3 wires, the motor is rated at 8RPM 24V
    60Hz, and should use a 12mfd capacitor.

    Can I use 2 x 22mfd electrolytic capacitors end to end like
    this -------------|(--------------)|------------ to make a non-polarized
    capacitor (11mfd) that I can use with this motor.

    And how do I wire it, there is a red wire, a brown wire, and two white wires
    that are joined together.

    This is for a low speed, low torque application (turning a small plastic
    part on a pinball machine). The motor is about 1 1/2" in diameter and 2"
    deep (hopefully that might give you some idea of it's power).


    Thanks,

    Bob.
