Some loop frame coils do not have the positive and negative terminals identified with easy-to-understand symbols (such as + for positive and - for negative). Instead, the coil terminals are labeled with numbers. The terminal labeled with the number one (1) is the negative terminal. The terminal labeled with the number fifteen (15) is the positive terminal.

If it is not possible to read these numbers, you may want to count the male spade connector leads at each terminal. Usually, the positive terminal has two leads while the negative terminal has one lead.
