I just Installed a new swamp cooler motor, 2 spd, on previous owners 1 spd wiring.

When i flip the switch there is a loud buzzing noise and the shaft doesn't spin. I Adjusted belt and no change.

Any help would be much appreciated.

  • More info is needed about motors and how you wired the "new" one. – Alaska Man Apr 17 '20 at 21:28
  • Dial 115v 1/2hp, green to ground red to low and white to common black is not connected because the previous owner did not run a wire to black – CrazyAdder Apr 17 '20 at 22:29
