Question about Heating & Cooling
WHAT??? Did the new motor come with a wiring diagram? Typically you will either be using a "3 wire" connection or a "4 wire" connection. 3 wire is for using the existing capacitor (provided it's the right size), 4 wire is for using a separate capacitor. You should have 5 total wires on new motor HIGH/LOW/COMMON/CAP & CAP. Then possibly some separate wires for ground and rotation. The ground goes right where you mount the motor, rotation...make sure its blown up and out of the machine. 3 wires would be...1 SPEED 1 COMMON 1 CAP. 4 wire would be 1 SPEED 1 COMMON 2 CAPACITOR WIRES. Good Luck!!

You almost have it Look closer at the run capacitor. It has Herm, this is for the compressor, Com or C and F or Fan.
1 of your power wires is the fan speed so connect them accordingly usually black is hi, blue med, & red is low. You are "feeding" voltage to the selector switch on 1 side and coming out to the fan motor speeds.
Next you have a "Common" wire on your fan motor (this means its Common to all the other connections inside the fan motor to me. It is usually white. Connect this to the other line of power usually the Com on the capacitor unless it connects to a strip on the selector switch. But 1 of these 2 places will be the other side of your Power when plugged in. Lastly the brown it is usually the fan capicator only wire and it will connect to the fan "F" terminal on the capicator this terminal will not have any other wires connected to it.
This should make you a happy camper. Please rate me accordingly and good luck.

SOURCE: I am replacing the a/c
Brown wire is Start
Yellow wire is run or Power
Black wire is High Speed or Common
The other two taps are speed taps, but you have a single speed application
And high speed is what you need ,that’s why there’s not any wires
on Red and Blue if high speed was to much then you would move the
Black wire to one of the other taps RED low speed or Blue Medinm speed
White goes to the Yellow wire from the capacitor
Black goes to the Black wire you took off of high speed on old motor
Of course both Brown wires go to the capacitor and Green to ground
If a capacitor doesn’t discharge it doesn’t mean it’s bad
but the capacitors don’t last as long as they used.
Any time you put in a new motor always replace the capacitor
It will save you a lot of time and grief later on.
