    i have a G.E. 115v, 1/4 hp reversible motor model number 5KH39QN5512T and a type 91 dpdt relay. My question is.... How do i wire this motor and relay to reverse the motor?:confused: And what type of switch would i use?:confused: I have a dpdt center off switch or a spdt switch. Any diagrams and explanations would be helpful and appreciated. Thanks in advance

    The connections to the start winding are reversed to start the motor in the opposite direction -

    Your DPDT switch, if rated for the voltage and current, will be enough to swap the start terminals. The SP switch can be the on/off switch.
