    I have an older craftsmanship 3 hp saw. The motor was disconnected firing a recent move and I want to reconnect wires. The Phillips start capacitor has four posts with 1 red and 1 black wire from the motor already connected. The starter switch has black , white and green wires. Should I connect the black to black and the red to white in the capacitor posts? I also assume the green can be grounded to the motor shell via a screw. Help please

    Take a look at your owner's manual. It should have the schematic.

    It is 113.298844. It's a table saw.

    I have an earlier version table saw. Here is a photo of the wiring diagram on the side of the motor. I hope it helps.

    Thanks. I have the same diagram which does not address the white wire from the start switch. I am assuming I connect the black lead from the start switch to the black post on the capacitor and then connect the white lead from the start switch to the red post on the capacitor. Make sense? Or reverse the white and black start switch leads? Don't want to blow out the capacitor.
