Re: How many Amps
Startup current will always be higher, though I couldn't tell you what a normal number might be. Once the motor spins up it should run at a lower amperage. If the amperage is too low, be on the lookout for bad connections. Bad connections add resistance, reduce the current and dissipate your current as heat that only serves to melt connections and burn things.
