Default Re: Polisher Restoration

Dalmationgirl, at one time it was code to only switch 2 legs of 3 phase to start and stop a motor. I have seen this done to run a small compressor with a manual motor and a pressure switch. The code was changed in the 60's to require 3 OL heaters and break all phases. You have to watch older items as this can and will get you in a bad situation if not paying attention.
