Air Compressor electric motor " SPL" ?

Post by rustytoolss on Thu Apr 07, 2016 3:52 pm

My 60 gal air compressor's motor burnt up last week. But I'm not sure of what motor to replace it with. The Tag's info is
Frame X56
HP "SPL"
RPM 3450
HZ 60
PH 1 sf
Volts 230
Amps 15.0
Time CONT
Thermally Protected KM
Peak KW 3.73
Compressor Duty Motor
Harbor freight sell a 3hp air compressor electric motor. Not sure if it will work. I'm not sure if I have a 3hp or 5hp or 200hp?? what is HP "SPL" ??
I bought the compressor in 1990, lasted 26 years. I don't know anything about electric motors, except when there's smoke coming from them. It's going to cost you money.

Yours is a 3HP, 220/230 volts. 3450 RPM. Check to make sure which direction your old motor runs.
A replacement will likely have a little tag showing how to reverse it if necessary.
