Discuss How to get power? in the American Professional Electrical Advice Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

Hello Everyone
I am trying really hard as a homeowner to learn as I go and just want to do the right things.

I removed this from an older treadmill and I am trying to get it to get power. I want to use it for a halloween prop

I unhooked the motor speed controller from it and just want to figure out what from this photo I need to wire correctly for power.
Thank You very much.

OoOoo not sure if that's the sort of thing somebody would need in their hands to work out.

Have you tried a 12v battery to test? If you get it wrong then you probably won't kill yourself maybe? LOL

Biggie my recommendation is to try getting power from another, that’s an old motor it’s just fan cooled and not fully closed. Them textile motors are all like that get a TEFC motor
