Converting to 220v help

I have a powermatic PM1300 dust collector and just follows the wiring diagram to convert it to 220v. I plugged it in and heard a brief click and not working.

Do I need to do anything else? Did I need to change the capacitor or anything?

Thanks a lot

According to the manual you would need to rewire the input terminal board in the motor and also toggle the switch on the control board. Please post a photo of each and we can probably sort this out

Thank you. I missed that step, was focusing on the rewiring.

I just switched it over to 230 but it’s still dead. Here are some pics.

Thanks for your help.

Looking closely at the second photo, it appears the fuse is blown (you are going to hope that is all). There is a step-down transformer on that board and I suspect the switch is used to connect the line voltage to different primary inputs, so when you did not move the switch you applied 240 to the 120 volt input and the transformer would have supplied 24 volts instead of 12 volts to the rest of the circuit, hopefully the fuse protected from that. I might be able to fix the board if you can send it to me in Raleigh. Certainly Powermatic sells new boards

Thank you so much for taking the to help. I’ll try that but if it doesn’t work I’ll ship the circuit box to you for repair. Thanks again

I don't see a fuse in pic 2. I'm missing something. Is it an in-line fuse in another pic? Just curious for my satisfaction.

Good eye spotting it Phil.
