Electric Power & Utilities/Milwaukee 1hp Hoist - 9560 Series

Question
The hoist stopped working after the 'carpenters' hooked it back up after they had moved it. I found that they had reversed the 120vac power supply. Should repair be only a matter of changing the supply back? I have run an extension cord to it but it still doesn't operate. Are there fuses inside?

Answer
Mike,

Carpenters generally speaking make lousy electricians. I have no idea what else they may have done when they disconnected it and unfortunately neither do you. I see this hoist may have a "dual voltage" rating which means it can be hooked up for 120 volts or 208-240. If this is the case its quite possible the connections were not properly made back up for 120 volt operation. Your hoist has a manual that is available on line where you may be able to see what the wiring connections are supposed to look like. Check it out. Failing that contact Milwaukee and they should be able to tell you.
