I just got these new motors for my boat lift as the lift i bought did not come with any. (used lift) i did get the control remote box though and have tried to figure out how to wire these motors to go up and down correctly but cant figure it out. I know i am doing something simply wrong but just cant figure it out.

The motor will work for going up and down when i connect connections below but it vibrates and i know im giving it to much power.

switch blue to motor leg 1
switch orange to motor leg2
switch black to motor red but motor red not on motor block
switch red to motor black but motor black not on motor block

its a marathon (formely GE) motor 1hp wired for 240

if i put black motor wire back on motor block and only connect switch black to motor red off motor block then it will work fine but only spins 1 way and does nothing when trying to spin opposite direction.

I know i need a return im guessing or neutral tied to something maybe to make this work as the switch box reverses the red and black lines on each side when you hit up and down but maybe im wrong.

the up down switch is spring loaded so it stays in center. when you hit up the left solenoid engages when you hit down the right.

ill add one other picture to the post of actual box as well.

Mikeyce,
I noticed on your profile that you're an auto tech, not an electrician.
This bulletin board is meant for "Electricians, Inspectors and Related Professionals", as it states at the top of this page.

I'd suggest you find one of the many DIY forums for your question.........Sorry about that.
