Perhaps you've just installed a drop-in replacement motor, or maybe you're installing a new power train. You turn the electric motor on and ... its's rotating in the wrong direction! What the heck is going on? Is there something you can do to reverse my electric motor?
The answer is yes -- most of the time there is. The first step to figuring out how to fix your rotation problems is to establish whether it is a AC or DC motor. From there, the solution depends on exactly what type of motor you are working with.
