I need the wiring diagram to replace the condensing fan.some one has already removed it is my problem

Changes are the wiring color to a new fan motor are not going to be the same as the old fan motor. On the new motor there should be black, white, brown & brown with a white stripe. The black and white (or the two that are not brown) go to the contactor points L1 & L2 OR one goes on the left and one on right of the leaving points of the line voltage connections. It does not matter what black or white on which side (black goes on left normally). The two browns (1 with white and 1 plain brown) go to the NEW capacitor. Again doesn't made which side as long as they are on their own terminal not on the same side. Colors may be different depending on motor but the colors are usually blk,what and 2 brn

How to remove the blower motor in a 1989 volvo

If it is a 240 model remove the under panels by turning the clips until they come out on both sides. Then using a small screwdriver remove the clips on the fan covers on both sides. Then remove the fans which will look like a flat concave disk. Remove the clips by pushing them in and sliding them so the big hole is over the shaft. Usually the fans shaft is rusty and sometimes you have to destroy the fans to get them off the shaft. With patience you may be able to get the fans apart by holding the fan on one side an using a rocking motion on the other side. Make sure you mark the side on the fan when you take it off. Do not use too much pressure or you may destroy the housing the fan is attached to. You can buy new fans at the dealers Once the fans are removed on the left side remove the three screws holding the motor to the mount then remove the fan. Depending on what has been done before I usually cut the wires at the fan and then solder the new motors wires to the old harness. Then put everything back together make sure you put the fans on the right side that is why one is grey and one is white or they will suck air instead of blowing it.

I have a 3 speed fan with a red, blue, black an white wires, how are the supposed to be wired with power. the wires go to a little black box that appears to just be wires with no circuit board

The BOX is a GE splicer - with 6 wires - 2 grey power wires, then the red, blue, black, and white from the fan motor. I have the same problem and cannot find another GE SPLICER 3 SPEED SWITCH for the fan. All switches that I have tried have 4 a WIRING DIAGRAM would be GREAT!

Can anyone offer any help? I have tried every electrical store in the area!

Thr issue you are having you need to look on the motor and see if there is a diagram but you have to use the grey and white for a capacitor because i have an older fan that has no capacitor. and use the red for high

red = constant live 12v
brown = negative ground
violet = ignition live 12v
white = electric antenna (rear screen)
the speakers will be twisted pairs, i can not remember which is left and right but the grey stipe and brown strip are negative the others are positive.

If in doubt get a pro to install for you as you could cause damage if you connect wrongly.

Wire an AC fan motor

Look at the schematic on the new motor , but i think if the 2 purple wires go each one to each side of the capacitor, the black to line and you need to connect the other line which Im 99% sure is the whte wire which is the only one left.Remember you need 220v between the fan motor lines for it to work.
