This is a cross-post of mine, from winepress.us.
Admittedly this is more of a wine equipement question, than cheese, but I know there are some really smart people here that have solved similar issues. Sorry ahead of time if the cross post offends anyone. I can assure that is not my intention. (I'm stuck, and grapes are soon arriving....)
I need a bit of help getting my new grape destemmer wired up. As I look to wire my new WE286
, it is quickly outstripping my electrical knowledge. I'm not completely helpless from a wiring standpoint, I can wire up switches and outlets, run new circuits, and even wire a 220v dryer, but this motor is rapidly stumping me.
This destemmer did not ship with a plug end on the power cord, Instead it has 3 exposed wires, (Brown, Blue, and Yellow/green)
The motor itself is an Italian 220V, Single Phase, 12 Amp motor.
I know there are others out there that have wired this unit, or motors like it successfully.
But I am looking for a bit of direction on this. Is that something anyone here can help with?
Basically, what I'm looking for, are things such as the following:
"You need to get a NEMA 6-20 Male plug on the power cord"
"You need a dedicated 220V-20A circuit"
"You need wire up compatible NEMA 6-20 outlet, using romex 12-3"
"You need the use the hot wires (both red and black) and the ground"
"The neutral is not needed"
or should i just hire an electrician?
none of this is immediately clear from the manuals or online websites.
