    I am building a powder coat oven, so I bought a brand new Convection oven motor, and I cannot figure out how to wire it.

    The only label is 120v 60Hz 2.5uf 50w 0.47A CL H-T-P

    It has three wires a red, grey, and blue wire

    Blue to grey is 50 ohms
    Blue to red is 100 ohms
    Grey to red 35 ohms

    I am kind of out of my element here, but I am motivated to get this to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

    No just the one capacitor.

    Ensure it is a AC motor run rated capacitor, as there is a often a difference between run and start versions.
