Hi guys, I've recently had a failed motor on a kingspan biodisc septic tank. The new motors wire colouring differs from the original. Could someone please confirm that the below is correct for me please?

The first image is how the old motor was wired and the second is how 'I' think it should be wired to turn in a clockwise direction?

No, its wrong.
And the capacitor is in the wrong place too.

Which is correct? Metre or Meter? Click the link to find out more.

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?

The schematic clearly shows that for a clockwise direction you should have Live (brown) on U1, Neutral (blue) on U2 and the capacitor wired between U2 and Z2.

It couldn't be clearer........ which leads me to say that you should get someone who knows what they're doing to wire it up.

Actually kellys_eye, can I just double check as I'm also being told the following.... (Live to U2 rather than U1)

"The capacitor goes between U2 and Z2
NEUTRAL goes to U1
LIVE goes to U2 for one direction or to Z2 for the other direction. Guess and go this one, no idea which way their 'clockwise' actually refers to (the translation implies to me that you need to look at the motor from the pulley end to determine the direction of rotation)."

A bit unnecessary rude there KE. I know it's electrics and dangerous but the whole idea of this site is to assist others and avoid paying tradesmen.

The guy didn't just wire it up and hope for the best. He came on here to check.

When someone isn't sure about wiring something it is always wise to advise they seek professional assistance. I don't have 'all' the details so err on the safe side.

It's not so much liability as concern for the user.
