View Full Version : Help Wiring Lift Motor to Switch

03-20-2010, 08:31 PM
I am putting in a new lift and was given a used Magnetek 3/4 hp motor and switch to use to raise boat up and down. I have searched for a wiring diagram and can't seem to find one. The motor has 6 wires coming from it. White, Black, Red, Blue, Orange & Yellow.

The switch has 5 wires. White, Black, Red, Orange, and Green. I tried matching colors and the motor would only run in one direction. What is the correct way to wire it up?

There may be someone familar with this motor that may help. Can you provide the information on the motor label plate?

Here are some pics of the motor and switch. I know the switch is wired correct because it came off a working lift. So the question is related to wiring it to motor
