Additional Safety for Metal Bandsaws
BLADE CONDITION. Do not operate with dull,
cracked or badly worn blade that can break during
operation or decrease the performance of the
bandsaw. Inspect blades for cracks and missing
teeth before each use.
BLADE REPLACEMENT. Wear gloves to protect
hands and safety glasses to protect eyes when
replacing the blade. Make sure teeth face workpiece, in direction of blade travel.
WORKPIECE HANDLING. Always support workpiece with table, vise, or some type of support
fixture. Flag long pieces to avoid a tripping hazard.
Never hold workpiece with hands during horizontal
cutting operations. Keep hands a safe distance
away from moving blade during vertical cutting
operations.
FIRE HAZARD. Use EXTREME CAUTION if cutting magnesium. Using the wrong cutting fluid will
lead to chip fire and possible explosion.
HOT SURFACES. Be aware that touching hot
workpieces or chips can cause burns.
CUTTING FLUID SAFETY. Cutting fluids are poisonous. Always follow manufacturer’s cutting-fluid
safety instructions. Pay particular attention to
contact, contamination, inhalation, storage and
disposal warnings. Spilled cutting fluid invites slipping hazards.
ENTANGLEMENT HAZARDS. Always keep the
blade guard in place when bandsaw is in operation. Loose clothing, jewelry, long hair and work
gloves could be pulled into the blade or moving
parts, resulting in lacerations or amputation.
UNSTABLE WORKPIECES. Workpieces that
cannot be supported or stabilized without a vise or
jig should not be cut in vertical position, because
they can unexpectedly move while cutting and
draw the operator's hands into the blade causing
serious personal injury. Examples are chains,
cables, round or oblong-shaped workpieces, and
those with internal or built-in moving or rotations
parts, etc.
PROPERLY MAINTAIN MACHINE. Keep machine
in proper working condition to help ensure that it
functions safely and all guards and other components work as intended. Perform routine inspections and all necessary maintenance. Never operate machine with damaged or worn parts that can
break or result in unexpected movement during
operation.
DISCONNECT POWER FIRST. To reduce risk of
electrocution or injury from unexpected startup,
make sure bandsaw is turned OFF, disconnected
from power, and all moving parts have come to a
complete stop before changing blade or starting
any inspection, adjustment, or maintenance procedure.
LEAVING WORK AREA. Never leave machine
running unattended. Allow bandsaw to come to a
complete stop before you leave it unattended.
AVOID SUDDEN STARTUP. In the event of a local
power outage during operation, immediately press
Emergency Stop button to avoid a sudden startup
once power is restored.
No list of safety guidelines can be complete. Every shop environment is different. Like all
machines there is danger associated with the Model G0561. Accidents are frequently caused by
lack of familiarity or failure to pay attention. Use this machine with respect and caution to lessen
the possibility of operator injury. If normal safety precautions are overlooked or ignored, serious
personal injury may occur.

Model G0561 (Mfd. Since 01/08)
SECTION 2: POWER SUPPLY
Availability
Circuit Information
Before installing the machine, consider the availability and proximity of the required power supply
circuit. If an existing circuit does not meet the
requirements for this machine, a new circuit must
be installed. To minimize the risk of electrocution,
fire, or equipment damage, installation work and
electrical wiring must be done by an electrician or
qualified service personnel in accordance with all
applicable codes and standards.
A power supply circuit includes all electrical
equipment between the breaker box or fuse panel
in the building and the machine. The power supply circuit used for this machine must be sized to
safely handle the full-load current drawn from the
machine for an extended period of time. (If this
machine is connected to a circuit protected by
fuses, use a time delay fuse marked D.)
Electrocution, fire, shock,
or equipment damage
may occur if machine is
not properly grounded
and connected to power
supply.
Full-Load Current Rating
The full-load current rating is the amperage a
machine draws at 100% of the rated output power.
On machines with multiple motors, this is the
amperage drawn by the largest motor or sum of all
motors and electrical devices that might operate
at one time during normal operations.
Full-Load Current Rating at 110V....... 12 Amps
Full-Load Current Rating at 220V........ 6 Amps
The full-load current is not the maximum amount
of amps that the machine will draw. If the machine
is overloaded, it will draw additional amps beyond
the full-load rating.
If the machine is overloaded for a sufficient length
of time, damage, overheating, or fire may result—
especially if connected to an undersized circuit.
To reduce the risk of these hazards, avoid overloading the machine during operation and make
sure it is connected to a power supply circuit that
meets the specified circuit requirements.
Model G0561 (Mfd. Since 01/08)
For your own safety and protection of
property, consult an electrician if you are
unsure about wiring practices or electrical
codes in your area.
Note: Circuit requirements in this manual apply to
a dedicated circuit—where only one machine will
be running on the circuit at a time. If machine will
be connected to a shared circuit where multiple
machines may be running at the same time, consult an electrician or qualified service personnel to
ensure circuit is properly sized for safe operation.
Circuit Requirements for 110V
This machine is prewired to operate on a power
supply circuit that has a verified ground and meets
the following requirements:
Nominal Voltage..................... 110V, 115V, 120V

Grounding Requirements
This machine MUST be grounded. In the event
of certain malfunctions or breakdowns, grounding
reduces the risk of electric shock by providing a
path of least resistance for electric current.
For 110V operation: This machine is equipped
with a power cord that has an equipment-grounding wire and a grounding plug (see following figure). The plug must only be inserted into a matching receptacle (outlet) that is properly installed
and grounded in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.

Figure 3. Typical 6-15 plug and receptacle.
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding
wire can result in a risk of electric shock. The
wire with green insulation (with or without yellow
stripes) is the equipment-grounding wire. If repair
or replacement of the power cord or plug is necessary, do not connect the equipment-grounding
wire to a live (current carrying) terminal.
Check with a qualified electrician or service personnel if you do not understand these grounding
requirements, or if you are in doubt about whether
the tool is properly grounded. If you ever notice
that a cord or plug is damaged or worn, disconnect it from power, and immediately replace it with
a new one.
Extension Cords
We do not recommend using an extension cord
with this machine. If you must use an extension
cord, only use it if absolutely necessary and only
on a temporary basis.
SHOCK HAZARD!
Two-prong outlets do not meet the grounding
requirements for this machine. Do not modify
or use an adapter on the plug provided—if
it will not fit the outlet, have a qualified
electrician install the proper outlet with a
verified ground.
For 220V operation: The plug specified under
“Circuit Requirements for 220V” on the previous
page has a grounding prong that must be attached
to the equipment-grounding wire on the included
power cord. The plug must only be inserted into
a matching receptacle (see following figure) that
is properly installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
-10-
Extension cords cause voltage drop, which can
damage electrical components and shorten motor
life. Voltage drop increases as the extension cord
size gets longer and the gauge size gets smaller
(higher gauge numbers indicate smaller sizes).
Any extension cord used with this machine must
be in good condition and contain a ground wire
and matching plug/receptacle. Additionally, it must
meet the following size requirements:
Minimum Gauge Size............................14 AWG
Maximum Length (Shorter is Better).......50 ft.

Cleanup
The unpainted surfaces of your machine are
coated with a heavy-duty rust preventative that
prevents corrosion during shipment and storage.
This rust preventative works extremely well, but it
will take a little time to clean.
Be patient and do a thorough job cleaning your
machine. The time you spend doing this now will
give you a better appreciation for the proper care
of your machine's unpainted surfaces.
There are many ways to remove this rust preventative, but the following steps work well in a wide
variety of situations. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions with any cleaning product you
use and make sure you work in a well-ventilated
area to minimize exposure to toxic fumes.
Before cleaning, gather the following:
•
Disposable rags
•
Cleaner/degreaser (WD•40 works well)
•
Safety glasses & disposable gloves
•
Plastic paint scraper (optional)
Gasoline and petroleum
products have low flash
points and can explode
or cause fire if used to
clean machinery. Avo i d
u sing t h e s e p r o d u c t s
to c l e a n m a c hin e r y.
Many cleaning solvents
are toxic if inhaled. Only
work in a well-ventilated
area.
NOTICE
Avoid chlorine-based solvents, such as
acetone or brake parts cleaner, that may
damage painted surfaces.
T23692—Orange Power Degreaser
A great product for removing the waxy shipping
grease from your machine during clean up.
Basic steps for removing rust preventative:
1.
Put on safety glasses.
2.
Coat the rust preventative with a liberal
amount of cleaner/degreaser, then let it soak
for 5–10 minutes.
3.
Wipe off the surfaces. If your cleaner/degreaser is effective, the rust preventative will wipe
off easily. If you have a plastic paint scraper,
scrape off as much as you can first, then wipe
off the rest with the rag.

Site Considerations
Weight Load
Physical Environment
Refer to the Machine Data Sheet for the weight
of your machine. Make sure that the surface upon
which the machine is placed will bear the weight
of the machine, additional equipment that may be
installed on the machine, and the heaviest workpiece that will be used. Additionally, consider the
weight of the operator and any dynamic loading
that may occur when operating the machine.
The physical environment where the machine is
operated is important for safe operation and longevity of machine components. For best results,
operate this machine in a dry environment that is
free from excessive moisture, hazardous chemicals, airborne abrasives, or extreme conditions.
Extreme conditions for this type of machinery are
generally those where the ambient temperature
range exceeds 41°–104°F; the relative humidity
range exceeds 20%–95% (non-condensing); or
the environment is subject to vibration, shocks,
or bumps.
Space Allocation
Consider the largest size of workpiece that will
be processed through this machine and provide
enough space around the machine for adequate
operator material handling or the installation of
auxiliary equipment. With permanent installations,
leave enough space around the machine to open
or remove doors/covers as required by the maintenance and service described in this manual.
See below for required space allocation.
Children or untrained people
may be seriously injured by
this machine. Only install in an
access restricted location.
Electrical Installation
Place this machine near an existing power source.
Make sure all power cords are protected from
traffic, material handling, moisture, chemicals, or
other hazards. Make sure to leave enough space
around machine to disconnect power supply or
apply a lockout/tagout device, if required.
Lighting
Lighting around the machine must be adequate
enough that operations can be performed safely.
Shadows, glare, or strobe effects that may distract
or impede the operator must be eliminated.

Blade Selection
Blade Size
The Model G0561 uses 93" x 3 ⁄4" bandsaw blades.
Grizzly is proud to offer a variety of selections
that can be found in the current catalog and in
SECTION 5: ACCESSORIES on Page 36.
Tooth Pitch
Usually measured as TPI (teeth per inch), tooth
pitch determines the size/number of the teeth.
More teeth per inch (fine pitch) will cut slower,
but smoother; while fewer teeth per inch (coarse
pitch) will cut rougher, but faster.
As a general rule, choose blades that will have at
least three teeth in the material at all times. Use
fine pitched blades on harder metals and coarse
pitched blades on softer metals. When selecting
blades, refer to Figures 34–35 on Pages 27–28
for recommended blade tooth (TPI) and speed
(FPM) based on the workpiece material.
Tooth Style
When selecting blades, another option to consider is the shape, gullet size, teeth set and teeth
angle—otherwise known as “Tooth Style." Many
blade manufacturers offer variations of the four
basic styles shown in Figure 31.
Standard: This style is considered to be the
standard because the tooth size and shape are
the same as the tooth gullet. The teeth on these
blades usually are very numerous, have no angle,
and produce cuts by scraping the material; these
characteristics result in very smooth cuts, but do
not cut fast and generate more heat than other
types while cutting.
Skip: This style is similar to a raker blade that is
missing every other tooth. Because of the design,
skip toothed blades have a much larger gullet
than raker blades, and therefore, cut faster and
generate less heat. However, these blades also
leave a rougher cut than raker blades.
Hook: The teeth on this style have a positive
angle (downward) which makes them dig into the
material, and the gullets are usually rounded for
easier waste removal. These blades are excellent
for the tough demands of resawing and ripping
thick material.
Variable Pitch: These blades typically feature
combinations of tooth styles that provide qualities
of both.
Tooth Set
Three of the most common tooth sets are alternate, wavy, and raker (see Figure 32).

Model G0561 (Mfd. Since 01/08)
Choosing Blade TPI
To select correct blade TPI:
Selecting the right blade for the job depends on
a variety of factors, such as type, hardness, and
shape of the material being cut, machine capability, and operator technique.
The chart in Figure 34 is a basic starting point
for choosing blade type based on teeth per inch
(TPI) for variable tooth pitch blades and for standard raker type bi-metal blades/HSS blades. As
a general rule, there should be at least 3 teeth in
contact with the workpiece at all times. However,
for exact specifications of bandsaw blades, contact the blade manufacturer.
1.
Measure material thickness. This measurement is the length of cut taken from where the
tooth enters the workpiece, sweeps through,
and exits the workpiece.
2.
Refer to "Material Width" row of blade selection chart in Figure 34 and read across to
find workpiece thickness you need to cut.
3.
In the center row, find the TPI that corresponds to the workpiece thickness.
When cutting structural shapes such as angle iron
or I-beams, workpieces should be positioned to
maintain the same material width throughout the
cut, as illustrated in Figure 33.

Choosing Blade
Cutting Speeds
The "Cutting Speed Rate Recommendation Chart"
in Figure 35 offers guidelines for various metals,
given in feet per minute (speed FPM) and meters
per minute in parenthesis. Choose the speed
closest to the number shown in the chart.
Selecting the right blade speed for cutting depends
on the type of material being cut. Selecting the
correct blade speed prolongs the life of your blade
and provides the best possible cutting results.
Follow the directions in the Changing Blade
Speed section on Page 29 to set the machine to
the closest available speed.

Cutting Fluid System
FIRE HAZARD! DO NOT cut
magnesium when using oilwater solutions as a cutting fluid! Always use a
cutting fluid intended for
magnesium. The water in
the solution will cause a
magnesium-chip fire.
ELECTROCUTION
HAZARD! Never plug or
unplug machine with wet
hands or while standing on
wet floor.
This bandsaw has a built-in cutting fluid system
that extends the life of your bandsaw blades by
lowering the cutting temperature and washing
away chips.
4.
See Cutting Fluid on Page 31 for more information.
Adjust valve on coolant hose to control flow
of coolant (see Figure 39). Make sure that
pressure is not so high that coolant spills on
floor and creates a slipping hazard.
Control

To use cutting fluid system:
1.
Thoroughly clean and remove any foreign
material that may have fallen inside reservoir
during shipping.

Cutting Fluid
Feed Rate
While simple in concept and function, many
issues must be taken into account to find and use
the correct cutting fluid. Always follow all product
warnings and contact the fluid manufacturer for
unanswered questions.
The speed at which the saw blade will cut through
a workpiece is controlled by blade type, feed rate,
and feed pressure.
Use selections below to choose appropriate
cutting fluid:
Note: If a lubricant is used on the cut, the feed
rate can be increased by approximately 15%.
To set feed rate:
•
For cutting low alloy, low carbon, and general-purpose category metals with a bi-metal
blade­—use water soluble cutting fluid.
1.
Raise bow to maximum height to remove
spring tension. Close ON/OFF valve to lock
bow in place.
•
For cutting stainless steels, high carbon, and
high alloy metals, brass, copper and mild
steels—use "Neat Cutting Oil" (commonly
undiluted mineral oils) that have extreme
pressure additives (EP additives).
2.
Using a 9⁄16" wrench, adjust feed pressure
tension spring by rotating adjustment nut
(see Figure 40). Tighten enough to remove
play but not enough to apply tension to
spring.
•
For cutting cast iron, cutting fluid is not recommended.
•
For cutting magnesium, use only cutting fluid
that is designed for cutting magnesium.
Note: This spring adjustment is an initial setting. Depending on cutting circumstances,
you will have to fine-tune the feed pressure
with this adjustment. Increasing the spring
tension will reduce the feed pressure.
Remember: Too much flow at the cutting fluid
nozzle will make a mess and can make the work
area unsafe; and not enough fluid at the cut will
heat the blade, causing the blade teeth to load up
and break.
BIOLOGICAL AND POISON
HAZARD!
Use
proper
personal
protection
equipment when handling
cutting fluid and dispose
by following federal, state,
and fluid manufacturer
requirements to properly
dispose of cutting fluid.

Blade Breakage
Close feed ON/OFF valve shown in Figure 41,
to lock bow and blade a few inches above
workpiece.
Many conditions may cause a bandsaw blade to
break. Blade breakage is unavoidable, in some
cases, since it is the natural result of the peculiar
stresses that bandsaw blades must endure. Blade
breakage is also due to avoidable circumstances.
Avoidable blade breakage is most often the result
of poor care or judgement on the part of the
operator when mounting or adjusting the blade or
support guides.
Feed Rate Dial
The most common causes of blade breakage
are:
Feed ON/OFF Valve
•
Faulty alignment or adjustment of the blade
guides.
•
Feeding workpiece too fast.
•
Dull or damaged teeth.
•
Over-tensioned blade.
•
Blade guide assembly set too far away from
workpiece. Adjust the blade guide assembly
approximately 1⁄4" away from workpiece.
•
Using a blade with a lumpy or improperly finished braze or weld.
•
Continuously running bandsaw when not in
use.
•
Leaving blade tensioned when not in use.
•
Using wrong pitch (TPI) for the workpiece.
The general rule of thumb is to have at least
three teeth in contact with the workpiece at all
times during cutting.
Figure 41. Location of feed ON/OFF valve.
5.
6.
7.
With correct saw blade and blade speed
selected, turn saw and lubricant pump ON.
Open the ON/OFF valve, then slowly rotate
the feed rate dial clockwise to a slow feed
rate until saw begins to cut workpiece (see
Figure 41).
Observe the chips that exit the cut, and
increase or decrease the feed rate according
to chip characteristics.
—If the chips are tightly curled, warm shavings, brown to black in color, there is too
much downward pressure.
—If the chips are blue looking chips, the
blade speed is too high.
—If the chips are thin and powder-like, there
is insufficient feed pressure. This will dull
your blade rapidly.
—The best cut and feed rate will give you
evenly shaped spiraled curls with very little
color change, if any at all.

Model G0561 (Mfd. Since 01/08)
Blade Care &
Break-In
Blade Care
A bandsaw blade is a delicate piece of steel that
is subjected to tremendous strain. You can obtain
longer use from a bandsaw blade if you give it fair
treatment and always use the appropriate feed
rate for your operation.
Be sure to select blades with the proper width,
set, type, and pitch for each application. The
wrong choice of blades will often produce unnecessary heat and will shorten the life of your blade.
A clean blade will perform much better than a dirty
blade. Dirty or gummed up blades pass through
the cutting material with much more resistance
than clean blades. This extra resistance also
causes unnecessary heat.
Model G0561 (Mfd. Since 01/08)
Blade Break-In
The sharp teeth tips and edges of a new blade are
extremely sharp, and cutting at full feed rate may
cause fracturing of the beveled edges of the teeth
and premature blade wear.
To properly break in a new blade:
1.
Choose correct speed for blade and material
of operation.
Note: We strongly recommend using mild
steel if cutting metal during break-in phase.
2.
Reduce feed pressure by 1⁄2 for first 50–100
square inches of material cut.
3.
To avoid twisting blade when cutting, adjust
feed pressure when total width of blade is in
material.
4.
Use Chip Inspection Chart on Page 35 to
check blade efficiency for metal cutting.
-33-
Operation Tips
•
Wait until blade has completely stopped
before removing workpiece from vise, and
avoid touching cut end—it could be very hot!
The following tips will help you safely and effectively operate your bandsaw, and help you get the
maximum life out of your saw blades.
•
Support long workpieces so they won't fall
when cut, and flag ends of workpieces to alert
passers-by of potential danger.
Tips for horizontal cutting:
•
Position blade guides approximately 1⁄4" from
workpieces to minimize side-to-side blade
movement.
•
Use coolant when possible to increase blade
life.
•
Use work stop to quickly and accurately cut
multiple pieces of stock to same length.
•
Clamp material firmly in vise jaws to ensure a
straight cut through the material.
•
Let blade reach full speed before engaging
workpiece (see Figure 42). Never start a cut
with blade in contact with workpiece.
Tips for vertical cutting:
•
Workpieces that cannot be properly supported or stabilized without a vise should not be
cut in vertical position. Examples are chains,
cables, round or oblong-shaped workpieces,
workpieces with internal or built-in moving or
rotating parts, etc.
•
Make sure that vertical table assembly is
securely fastened to bandsaw frame so it will
adequately support workpiece.
•
Always keep your fingers away from blade
and always hold workpiece securely with
appropriate clamping device.
•
Adjust blade guides as close as possible
to workpiece to minimize side-to-side blade
movement.

Blade Tension & Tracking.
Model G0561 (Mfd. Since 01/08)
Blade Tension &
Tracking
Proper blade tension is essential to long blade
life, straight cuts, and efficient cutting. The Model
G0561 features a blade tension indicator to assist
you with blade tensioning.
Two major signs that you do not have proper
blade tension are: 1) the blade stalls in the cut and
slips on the wheels, and 2) the blade frequently
breaks from being too tight.
Loosen blade tension at end of each day to
prolong blade life.
To tension blade on bandsaw:
1.
Turn blade tension handle clockwise to tension blade.
2.
Tension blade until blade tension guide indicator is in green zone (see Figure 57).
3.
The blade tracking has been properly set at
the factory. The tracking will rarely need to be
adjusted if the bandsaw is used properly.
To adjust blade tracking on bandsaw:
1.
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER!
2.
Position bandsaw in vertical position.
3.
Open wheel access cover.
4.
Loosen, but do not remove lower hex bolt in
blade wheel tilting mechanism.
5.
Relax blade tension.
6.
Adjust set screw with a 4mm hex wrench
(shown in Figure 57), then tighten hex bolt
loosened in Step 4.
—Tightening set screw will move blade closer to shoulder of wheel.

rarely occur. Uneven blade wear and crooked
cuts may be the result of improper adjustment.
Each bearing assembly has an eccentric bushing
(see Figure 59) that allows the distance between
the blade and bearings to be adjusted. The bearings are secured in place by a hex nut and a lock
washer.
Hex Nut
To adjust blade guide bearings:
1.
DISCONNECT MACHINE FROM POWER!
2.
Position vise to 90°, then lock in place.
3.
Put a machinist's square against face of vise
and move it over to blade. The square should
evenly touch both the face of vise and blade.
If it does, skip ahead to Step 6.
—If the square does not evenly touch blade,
but it does evenly touch vise, continue with
next step.
4.
Loosen hex nuts that secure eccentric bushings attached to guide bearings.
5.
Adjust bearings as necessary to force blade
90° to vise, then tighten hex nuts attached to
bearings that are forcing the blade to 90°.
6.
Check to see if any bearings are not touching blade evenly. If so, loosen hex nuts and
adjust eccentric bushing so contact surface
of bearing touches blade evenly.
Eccentric Bushing
Backing Bearing
Figure 59. Guide bearing components.
Before adjusting the blade guide bearings, make
sure that you have squared the blade to the table
as discussed in the previous section.
Note: Since the bearings twist the blade into
position, it is acceptable if there is 0.001"0.002" gap between the blade and the front
or back of the bearing. Just make sure not
to squeeze the blade too tightly with the
bearings. After the guide bearings are set,
you should be able to rotate guide bearings
(although they will be stiff) with your fingers.
The backing bearing is not adjustable and
should make light contact with blade.

SECTION 8: WIRING
These pages are current at the time of printing. However, in the spirit of improvement, we may make changes to the electrical systems of future machines. Compare the manufacture date of your machine to the one
stated in this manual, and study this section carefully.
If there are differences between your machine and what is shown in this section, call Technical Support at
(570) 546-9663 for assistance BEFORE making any changes to the wiring on your machine. An updated
wiring diagram may be available. Note: Please gather the serial number and manufacture date of your
machine before calling. This information can be found on the main machine label.
Wiring Safety Instructions
SHOCK HAZARD. Working on wiring that is connected to a power source is extremely dangerous.
Touching electrified parts will result in personal
injury including but not limited to severe burns,
electrocution, or death. Disconnect the power
from the machine before servicing electrical components!
MODIFICATIONS. Modifying the wiring beyond
what is shown in the diagram may lead to unpredictable results, including serious injury or fire.
This includes the installation of unapproved aftermarket parts.
WIRE CONNECTIONS. All connections must
be tight to prevent wires from loosening during
machine operation. Double-check all wires disconnected or connected during any wiring task to
ensure tight connections.
CIRCUIT REQUIREMENTS. You MUST follow
the requirements at the beginning of this manual
when connecting your machine to a power source.
WIRE/COMPONENT DAMAGE. Damaged wires
or components increase the risk of serious personal injury, fire, or machine damage. If you notice
that any wires or components are damaged while
performing a wiring task, replace those wires or
components.
MOTOR WIRING. The motor wiring shown in
these diagrams is current at the time of printing
but may not match your machine. If you find this
to be the case, use the wiring diagram inside the
motor junction box.
CAPACITORS/INVERTERS. Some capacitors
and power inverters store an electrical charge for
up to 10 minutes after being disconnected from
the power source. To reduce the risk of being
shocked, wait at least this long before working on
capacitors.
EXPERIENCING DIFFICULTIES. If you are experiencing difficulties understanding the information
included in this section, contact our Technical
Support at (570) 546-9663.
