I ordered and received this fasco blower--the A125 pictured here http://www.electricmotorwarehouse.com/fasco/fasco_blower.htm
, and it comes with only wire leads, no box or plug to plug it in. I got it to replace my old blower from my handfired stove, because my old blower was having trouble starting, and the rheostat that was in between the wall and the blower is pretty much broken (the plastic stem is broken, and it is only "full on" now). To make sure it wasn't just the rheostat, I borrowed a rheostat from the Gibraltar MCC i'm fixing up to see if it would work, and it gave the same slow/no startup routine.
So I'm wondering, what do I put between a wall plug and this blower? Do I need some kind of transformer or something to step it down from regular household current to the 1.1 amps that this blower is supposed to run at? The website says it is not recommended for speed control, otherwise I'd use a 1.1 am dimmer switch. I don't know what to use, and neither does my local coal stove dealer.
