Lightning Hit Ventahood Motor And Starter

Recommended Posts

I am trying to go behind someone else and hook get my ventahood to work when we turn it on in the kitchen.  The disconnect, motor starter in on the roof.  I replaced the contactor  and motor today as they were hit by lightening but I do not seem to have control voltage to our fan.  I can see the contactor kick in when we turn on the switch in the kitchen but the fan does not turn.  It is a 480vac 3 phase motor

 

I can take L1 L2 L3 and tie them together with the yellow wires form this old starter in the picture and the fan works but I can not seem to get the fan to work when we turn on the switch on the kitchen.  It looks to me that the last electrician used the old starter as a pass through or something.  How can I or what do I need to do to get this to operate properly?

 

Thanks

This is a UK forum, although some members may try to help, your wiring & codes are different to ours and its best you look for local or at least a US forum

Well that Cutler & Hammer contactor looks well and truly burnt up. I would start with replacing that.
