    A 240 volt electric motor fitted to a machine of American origin, has four connecting wires including the Earth connection, the others are, a red marked L2, a Black marked L1 and a white marked N, could one assume that this is a two phase motor ?

    Why are you posting this here when you have a long thread about this same motor in electrics UK?

    TO REPEAT. It is NOT a two phase motor, it is a single phase 240v motor.

    To use here connect red and black L1 and L2 to the mains. DO NOT CONNECT THE NEUTRAL (WHITE). Connect the earth of course.
