The centrifugal switch removes the "cap and start winding" from power once the motor gets up to 80% rpm, only used for starting otherwise they burn up.

assuming you have the centrifugal switch wired as need be, you need to add an on/off switch.

I'm not sure what would happen if you switch the hi/lo switch while the motor is running,
so only select hi or low when the power is off AND motor at a "FULL" full stop!

The factory of the future will have only two employees, a man and a dog. The man will be there to feed the dog. The dog will be there to keep the man from touching the equipment. ~Warren G. Bennis
