    The fan is off a over range microwave. See picture below.

    The yellow label on the motor caused me some confusion.

    1. I am trying to wire the fan to run high speed and plug into a standard 120V/60Hz AC Outlet with a simple on/off switch. The fan will not be going back into a microwave so I will be cutting off the plug connector. Can I wire it directly to a 120V AC plug, or do I need some special power supply between the 120V outlet and the fan? If you look at the label on the motor, it has "input: 210/125/100". What does this mean? Input in my mind is 120V AC, so I am a bit confused.

    2. I have added a pic of a capacitor that I have on hand. The mF do not match. Will my capacitor work fine, or do I need to get another capacitor?

    3. What is the rectangle with the letters T/P on the diagram?

    5. How I was thinking it should be wired, before the yellow data label confused me:

    Neutral to white wire.
    Hot through a toggle switch to the blue wire for high speed operation.
    Orange and Red to the capacitor.
    Violet and Yellow not used.

    Thank you,

    -Mike

    Looks correct, T/P temperature sensor, Thermally Protected.?.
    Cap should not be super critical.

    Your idea seems correct, since the wires are marked H,M, and L

    Thanks for your response Max.

    I will just eliminate the temperature sensor, unless, of course, it is an internal item on the motor.

    Does anyone know what that 210/125/100 on the yellow label refers to?

    The thermal sensor is usually embedded in the winding's.
    I am assuming that the impedance is such that it will tolerate a wide voltage range.

    Looks like watts from here.

    Probably more accurate a reason.
