Hi all. I just bought a new G.E. single phase 1/2hp, 115V, 1725rpm motor
for my furnace blower.
Installed and wired it up ok but I need to reverse rotation. The label says
to swap two wires at the jumper terminals (red and black) and when I do
this, the motor does turn in the opposite direction but only for a few
seconds before it shuts down, after which it picks up again and continues
Am I missing something here or do I just have a bad motor?
Thanks in advance for any help, the hardware stores are all closed and it's
