I have a squirrel cage with a gentech x13 motor. Can you bypass the control module? I'm wanting to use it as a shop fan

Welcome to the forums.

Probably not the best choice of motors for a basic shop blower. You need to supply the proper power to the terminals on the side of the motor. You also need to apply 24vAC from common to one of the speed/torque terminals. The video below illustrates the wiring necessary to get it to run.
