I have a treadmill with a blown controller board and I'd like to bypass the controller completely and just wire the motor directly to the AC power source (via the DC converter.) Is that possible?
I've worked with DC motors before that just have 2 leads (red and black.) Applying DC current directly to these leads results in the motor turning. However, this particular motor (rated @130VDC, 18 amps, 2.5 HP) has 2 blue leads in addition to the standard positive and negative leads. I'm not sure how those should be wired. Any advice or suggestions (besides buying a new treadmill) would be most appreciated!
