OK, I bought a lathe that was wired 440, after getting prices I decided to change the thing to 220v 3ph and use a phase converter I already have. I got the motor and wired it as required on the motor tag. I then ordered the contactor coil that was 44ov to replace it with 220v. I installed everything and the lathe ran for a few seconds before it stopped. I opened the box where the starter/contactor was to find a smell i really dont like... it smelled like that majic blue smoke like when I killed that poor little servo so long ago, well maybe not that bad. The starter is an AB size 0. was there something else that i should have changed in the starter? or should the entire starter be replaced? it is rated for 3hp motor at 220v, my motor is 3hp and 22ov. Any help would be appreciated.
