I have an air compressor that has a 110 plug with separate extra wires for optional 220 connection.
It has 5 wires showing for the 220 option: black, white, brown, orange, and a purple wire.
-The purple wire is a larger gauge then the rest.- -The brown and orange are capped together.-
I have a 3 pronged 220 plug w/ 10-3 wire. How do i connect the air compressor wiring(5 wires) to the 3 prong 220 dryer plug?
