Motor speeds on the blower are always remember black is high, blue in med. and red is low sometimes blowers are 4 speeds but the main colors are the black blue and red. Now where to change locate the wires coming from blower to a box or control board. control board has setting for heating and cooling speeds for the blower. You might see blue on heating which would be medium speed so take the red off park terminal and change places with the blue. Now if you have a fan control switch it looks like a dail in the middle of the furnace with numbers on the face with pointers set at the numbers. follow the wires from there to the electrical box and open box. find color of blower and switch be sure to cap off the wire you change. Wire nut would be good.

Iam replacng my home a/c blower motor. My unit hasa red a black and a white wire. My new motor has a black wire a blue wire a red wire and a yellow wire. I need to know which color wire goes to which


On the original motor, red was low speed, black was high speed and white was common. The new motor should either have a diagram on the side of it or within the box for verification, but the black SHOULD also be high speed and the red wire SHOULD be low speed , the blue wire SHOULD be medium and the yellow SHOULD be common. However, you MUST verify those connections on the wiring diagram provided with the new motor before you connect or you will probably let out the MAJIC SMOKE !!! The speed you decide not to utilize can just be taped off and zip tied to the bundle.

You made no comment about two brown wires, and if either motor has two browns, they go to the run capacitor.

Furnace repair


what makes you think there a problem with the blower, Most newer blowers have multi-speeds so be careful to only have two wires hooked up at a time , always have the ground hooked up, usually the white wire and then try black for high speed, make sure fan is secure it may shift. to check low speed connect only the red wire to power and the white wire to gound . depending on motor, other colors would be medium and medium high is so equipped. if motor gets hot after a while check for a capacitor, they have a tendency to get weak, replace with exact same capacitor. let me know why you suspect the blower.

I have an Emerson (4 Speed) direct drive blower for my gas furnace. What is the process (wire color codes) to change speeds on the blower. (I have a red, black and yellow wires taped off in the wire...


There should be a wiring diagram on the motor itself. The colors of the wires vary depending on voltage and model. Generally you have a med/low and med/high setting, I'm not sure what you are getting to with the low/high setting unless you are trying to set up staging. Check the motor for a diagram, if that is not present post back with all of the wire colors coming from the motor and the voltage.

Vetilation doesn't work in positions 1,2,3, works only in position 4.. help please!


You have got a defective blower motor resistor. Your blower resistor is located just to the left of your blower motor (which is located under the passenger side of your dash. You may find you have a carpeted covered piece of cardboard that is located on the underside of the dash (below the glove box ) if so you'll have to to remove it by removing the retaining clips, Now look up behind the glove box and you"ll see the blower motor and just to the left of it there is rectangular unit with a connector with six wires within the connector , the colors of the wires will be as follows (black and orange)(black and yellow)(two wire's that are black and white)(black and blue)and (black). the blower motor resistor is totally bypassed when you turn your fan speed to high ! The blower speed is controlled by the ground side of the blower. When you request any of the other three speeds the ground circuit is routed through the blower resistor which is made up of three resistors.( resistors reduce the current flow) and each resistor reduces a predetermined about of current.So when you request medium high blower speed the ground circuit runs through one resistor, if you request medium low the ground circuit runs through two resistors , and through three resistors to obtain low blower speed, Normally what happens is the blower resistor blows out the circuit between the fan switch and the blower motor resistor which results in the lost of all lower speeds,no different then the wire to the blower motor just being disconnected.Replace the blower motor resistor and you will in great shape .Thanks for using fixya

2006 B4 Subaru Legacy A?C blower motor runs at high speed all the time when switched on


blower motors are regulated by group of resistors that cause the voltage to reduce at different amounts resulting in high to low speeds on the fan. When this fails the motors goes to high speed all the time. These are not expensive or hard to replace. Usually a plug connector and a couple of screws and around $25 will do it. These are located under the dash in the main body of the heater as they rely on air blowing over them to reduce the heat created by the resistance. the side opposite the connector will look like sifferent sizes of wire wound much like a spring to create resistance and slow the blower motor down. Once you have this out you can go to a parts store and ask for a replacement one. good luck

The AC button light blinks on and off. AC won't


When the light is blinking that means there is a code in the system you will have to take it to a shop and have the codes read. Sometimes "Jiffy Lube" or "Rapid Oil Change" can read the code for but they won't fix it. If the blower motor only runs on high, the blower motor resistor is bad. When you put the fan switch on high it puts full voltage to the fan motor (blower motor) when the fan switch is in any other position, the voltage is reduced by the resistor causing the motor to run at slower speeds. The two problems are probably a result of the resistor.

1993 f 150, the blower motor for the heat does not have high, only low and med


These motors use three separate sets of blower motor windings which Low, Medium, and High. The chances are that the selector switch is ok and the High winding or set on the blower motor is not good.

I do not know the color coding of the motor to be able to put 12 volts on one of the windings of the motor to try and force the high to make sure it is actually getting to the motor.

The only way to be certain is to get to the Speed Selector switch and try and find out if 12 volts is being selected to the high side of the switch that goes to the motor. You will have to take the dash apart, which is easier prob. better than replacing the motor which is in the firewall. You might be able to replace it from the engine compartment at a autowrecker, but the high may be a problem Chevy had.
So if you figure out the color of the wire that is the 12 V high, then with the car on and in the high position, apply 12 directly at the motor by exposing part of the wire with a razor blade or a poke through with a sharp tool just to see if it comes on.
Temp solution - Assume the motor is good and the switch may be bad, Remove the medium speed wire and swap it with the High wire and see if it runs on high. Then you will have Low and High ONLY.

There is allot there good luck!

Coleman outdoor furnace/AC blower speed too fast


You are right slow for heat and fast for A/C. Here are the blower speeds black is high blue is med. and red is low if you have orange it would be med low. Look on the control board and see what color wire is connected to heat and let me know if you have something other then control board. You can take the wire that is on park and swap them around. ken

No high speed on blower motor


if motor works on heat, but not on cool ,then the low speed is energized by the heat strip or control board .if the motor doesn't run in high on cool, then the fan relay or black high speed tap from the board is not being energized. usually its the fan relay ,which is only a factor in cool in high speed fan mode. try turning fan to on at stat. that energizes fan relay and blower should run in high. gently tap the side of the fan relay and see if fan comes on all of a sudden. if it does the relay is bad. change it wire for wire label all wires and use exact replacement relay unless you know how to read wiring diagram then you can use a 90-340 generic fits all replacement. trace motor power wires back to relay or control board to find where they are fed from.
