Hi...
I would like to invert the rotation of an electric motor.
The motor is 120VCA, single phase and don´t use start capacitor.
Thanks in advance

built in bias

These motors have a built in bias for rotating in one direction caused by the construction of the field. If the motor is not too high a HP rating, you can mechanically rotate it the other way before applying the power and sometimes it will run backwards. Your best bet is to use some form of gearing or rubber wheels to mechanically change the rotation of an output shaft.
