Wiring diagram help

Which wires on the motor do I need to swap to reverse the motor polarity?

Diagram

Find someplace else beside photobucket for your image. I'm not turning off my adblocker for them.

Looks like some sort of stepper motor. Not a simple wire swap to reverse. Is there any info on the motor itself? Maker? model#.

That is a dual source three phase motor. It should have reversing built in to the circuitry.
Technically swapping any two input wires will change the direction.

For example.....
U1, V1, W1 ...... reverse U1 and V1.
U2, V2, W2 ..... reverse U2 and V2.

It would be nice to know what that unit is.

To reverse a three phase motor simply swap any two of the hot power leads.

I agree Joed. One problem is there are two sets of motor windings.
Do you swap one pair of each set of windings ?
Or is one set for forward and one for reverse ?

I have no idea what that device is. I just know that to reverse a three phase motor all you do is swap two of the hots.

Looks like it is (or was?) a super duper food processor

For what it's worth, the marketing docs refer to it as an induction motor.

No idea what that means electrically though.

That is one heck of a food processor with a 3HP motor.

Blixer 5 - 3 HP, three phase, two speed, 1725/3450 RPM

I have to ask why would you want to reverse the direction of the motor.

Regardless of the reason reversing two supply power leads should reverse it unless it has some sort of VFD motor controller.
