Electrical Question: How should I wire a switch for a Dayton Blower Fan and make sure it is grounded?
I purchased a Dayton model #1tdn1a Blower Fan. it is a 115v ac fan, but it only has 2 wires coming out of it. I need to wire it to a cord of some sort with a switch, but not sure what I need to do it. I am also worried about the lack of a ground wire coming out of it. any help on where to start would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for your electrical wiring question Steve.

How to Wire a Blower Motor Switch
- Steve, from the information you have provided, the blower motor is mounted to a metal enclosure. There is a metal box where the lead wires are located for the wire connections to the 115volt circuit wiring. Inside the wiring box there is also a green grounding screw where the ground wire of the 115volt circuit should be attached.
- The switch for a blower motor such as this is typically application specific, therefore a switch is located in a convenient accessible location allowing the blower motor to be used as needed. A 115volt single pole switch rated specifically for this motor is typically installed for this purpose.
