Water Maker AC power and wiring Dessalator

I have a Dessalator DUO water maker which operates on 12 V or 240 V

The 12 V side runs fine and produces 100L per hour.

The 240 v 50 Hz motor stopped the other day and only runs in reverse.

The capacitor (30um 450V) had a bulge in it so replaced it, except the motor still only runs in reverse. Without the capacitor and the pully belt removed it runs in the correct direction, but under load will not run without the capacitor. When I attach the new capacitor with the belt on it still runs in reverse. Have reversed capcitor wires - makes no difference.


Anyone had any issues with this, or have photo of wiring to the AC feed/capacitor. I have emailed factory. An installation manual would be handy. Can not find one on the net.

Currently in north Florida.

OK problem fixed. Diagram is on inside top cover of the terminal box on the motor. Thanks to Great Waters Inc for email assistance.
