Electric dryer motor rotation typical model NE5513 WE
« on: March 18, 2022, 09:53:41 AM »

This speed queen electric dryer was given to me for possible use or repair. It had several problems that made it uneconomical to repair. Quite often I get dryers that have a motor that is seized up  and not able to be un seized. I  sometimes keep a working motor to use  if and where possible on another dryer. The problem is many of the motors are the same frame size and mount but different rotation. CW versus CCW as viewed from the fan end. Is there a way to reverse the direction of rotation externally or is it impossible due to the internal windings of the motor ?
