Having problems with your Air Conditioners ?

The out door fan motor is bad. it has three wires the new one has four, a black one a white one and two brown how do i wire up the cap.


Answers :

The two brown wires go to a capacitor which you should buy new when you buy the motor. they usually cost less than $5.00 and since your motor wires are not the same the capacitor in your a/c may not be the right one for the new motor and it also may be bad.
\015\012for the white and black wires they go to the load side of your contactor. it's important that you check the voltage rating on your motor and the a/c to make sure it's the right voltage for your a/c.
\015\012usually there's a wiring diagram on your a/c showing the line or power wires coming in to the a/c, they usually go to the contactors line side the opposite side is the load side to wire the motor to.

I just purchased an fse1028sf to replace my faulty fan motor. I purchased it from a a/c supply store. My existing fan only had three wires. They were brown, black and purple. Black to: capacitor "c". Purple to: T2 and brown to: "fan" on the cap. The new motor has: brown, brown/white, black and white. The paperwork that came with the motor says to put brown & brown/white to the cap, black & white . The cap has a red wire on "fan". I'm confused

I am replacing my old a/c fan motor with a new one. The old motor is an A.O Smith B13400-251 and has black, brown, and a purple wire and was connected to a dual capacitor.

I have a Carrier 8000 weathermaker. Recently the blower motor began to run progressively slower and finally just bogged down. I replaced the motor, but the replacement motor has three speeds (red, blue and black wires) whereas the old motor had four (red, blue, black and yellow). Initially I hooked the new motor wires up to the circuit board the same way the old ones were, leaving an open spot where the old yellow wire was. New motor works, but at lower speeds, pushing less cool air. We liv

5 ton carrier. we changed the condenser motor and marked where the wires connected. Old motor had yellow and brown to capacitor. New motor has an extra brown wire with white stripe... I connected it the same way as the old one without using the extra wire.... didn't work. Advise how to connect the new 5 wire motor... red and black wires I'm confident are connected correctly.


The best way to wire that motor is to connect a separate capacitor to it. The brown and brown w/white stripe go to the capacitor. The black and red wires go to the contactor. ... Air Conditioners

I have two (2) singel switches next to each other that turn on the lights in the garage and the other the lights outside. I bought two (2) 1595-SWTTRWCC4's and I would like to know how to install them. Each one has two black wires coming out of the Pass & Seymour. Out of the wall I see one red and one black wire going to one existing switch, and two additional black wires going to the other switch. Ground is no problem. How do I wire the both ? Thanks Guido

The light fixture needed to be repaired. It never worked when I bought the house. New light bulbs didn't worked. I replaced the two ceramic light switches that had corroded wiring and reconnected blue to black and white to white. I have a dual wall switch that controls the fan and light. Now the light only works when the fan is on. The light on my other identical fan works without the fan on. Is the wiring problem in the fan or switch. The switches are different.
