How is the indoor fan motor of a fujitsu airconditioner model AST9ASE-W wound. I need to know which coloured wire is neutral, which 2 wires connect to the capacitor & which wires are the 4 speeds?

Ok as a rule the neutral or L2 is white it will be attached to the Windings of the motor. The capacitor wires are generaly the same color and length but one will have a stripe and one solid.Now to determin your speeds you need to ohm out your remaining wires to your nuetral. The high speeds will have the lower ohms and the low speed will ohm out higher. Just a prosess of illimanation to determin witch is witch. I hope this is what you needed. I know it's not specific to your equipment, but it's a basic map of those type of motors that should get you where you need to be.

I got my craftmade ceiling fan about 10 years ago, the fan has now stopped working but the light works, I changed out the switch on the wall that was not the problem sometimes I will turn on the wall...

pretty sure its the 3 speed pull chain switch.$4.50 to $6.00 at home depot or lowes or hardware/elecrtical store.
how 2 replace switch.
1.turn off breaker to fan/fan lights,probably that whole room.
may need extension cord & floor lamp from closest room with electric, so u can see.
2.need 6ft step ladder to get up to fan.look see how to get to fan speed switch. speed switch unscrews from outside but body of switch is inside fan cover.
3. need to take fan off ceiling to replace switch.
4.switch has 4 wires, power feed into switch and 3 selector
wires that go to high speed winding,medium speed winding and low speed winding.
speed selector switch has 4 settings, off, low,medium,high.

about ac circuits , black wire is 120 volts, hot.
white wires are neutral return wire. an ac voltmeter will read 120volts ac with its red and black probes between black,hot and
white= neutal=ground which is green. If wired properly and polarity was observed, white and green ground wires both connect to the neutral ground buss bar in the circuit breaker panel box and are the same electrical point.

black wires,and the selector handle getting the hot juice into the fan and white returns the used juice to the circuit breaker panel box.
If polarity was observed, you can touch white and ground without getting a shock.
black will jolt or even fry you dead, so make sure the breaker to the fan is off, so that the circuit is de-energized before you touch it.

PLEASE NOTE--- make drawing on paper of what color wires from the fan motor go to what color wires on the selector switch.
If the switch has 4 black wires, you need to put different color electrical tape as a marker, on each wire. or ,to be cheap, you can use white paper,scissors to cut paper,and pencil and write 1,2,3,4 on the paper and tape to the 4 switch wires.

that is: wire # 1 from the switch goes to the black wire from the wall--ac hot
wire #2 from switch goes to yellow fan motor winding,
wire # 3 from switch goes to orange wire from fan motor

wires are specific and NOT interchangeable.

go to & type into search engine box
how to replace fan motor speed selector switch.

Without knowing the make & model of your ceiling fan, I can't answer exactly, but I'll do my best.

You probably have black, white & green wires. Green is always ground, which means it gets attached to the metal box or ground wire you are connecting to.
Since you're connecting (presumably) to an AC current, you should try to connect black to black and white to white. If you have some other colors, it shouldn't really matter.

HOWEVER! If you're connecting aluminum to copper wire, you should not use the regular wire nuts. Copper is much softer than aluminum. Instead of winding around each other, which holds the wires well, the copper will wind around the aluminum.
This means the copper could slip off the aluminum, exposing wires. (translation: BAD THING!!)

Copper + aluminum = No wire hangers... err.... No wire nuts.

Can i test run the fan motor by bypassing the capacitor

Maybe: If you can manually rotate the motor to get it started.
The capacitor is on start winding, and causes sudden release of amps that starts the motor.
There are two (or four) windings in each single phase motor.
Both receive power at same time.
One winding is the start winding, which can be considered 'low gear' on a transmission. The capacitor is on this winding and gives burst of enough power to begin rotation.
So when a motor just hums, and doesn't rotate, then the start winding and/or capacitor are suspect. Dry or worn bearings are suspect too.
The other winding is the run winding that brings motor to up to speed.
On fan motor, the run winding can have multiple connection points for selecting different speeds.

Need to know what wire goes to were..on a smith & jones modle 67841 compresser motor..p1 p2 t2 t3 t4 t5 what wire black white green

Hey guys, this motor is reversible. I have it wired to turn clockwise(according to diagram),
green to ground;
L1 (black) to P1;
L2 (white) to T2-T4-T8;
P2-T3-T5 together .
When I plug it in, the motor turns counter clockwise and the on/off switch does not work. How do I fix?

The question is why the main motor is not running. Either there is an open contact in the timer, or the motor has a blown thermal protector or tripped internal breaker.

Troubleshooting starts at the timer. Most washing machines have a wiring diagram on a sheet of paper either folded up and stored inside the control panel or pasted on the back panel of the machine. Find the wires going from the timer to the motor. The motor has two windings, RUN and START. The RUN winding has one connection to neutral (WHT or WHT/BLK, meaning white or white with a black stripe) and the other to the timer. The START winding has both connections going to the timer. The timer connects it power one way for agitate and the other way for spin. (The direction of current through the START winding determines whether the motor will turn clockwise or counterclockwise.)

If you are comfortable working in a live 120 VAC circuit with a voltmeter, use the wire colors in the diagram to identify the motor terminals on the timer, set the timer to the agitate position (i. e., right after the machine is done filling and you hear the click), then check for voltage on the RUN and the START winding terminals. For the START winding, measure between the terminals going to the START.

If you don't want to probe a live circuit, you can use an ohmmeter to test for continuity between the hot terminal of the power cord and the motor terminals on the timer. Repeat for the neutral terminal. A failure at this point indicates either a timer problem or (unlikely since the timer runs) a bad contact on the water level switch.

If you get voltage to the motor on both windings, or you have continuity through the timer for both windings, then, with the machine unplugged, test for continuity through each motor winding at the timer. An open indicates a problem with the motor. Note: most machines use a capacitor in series with the START winding. In that case, measure continuity between the capacitor terminal going to the motor and the timer terminal going directly to the motor.

Accidently got 220 volts for 3 seconds, then shut off. will not re-start, how should I proceed?

Look for reset button, hopefully reset would have tripped. If compressor will not power on, remove cover to pressure switch and examine contacts for burned. If burned, temp. connect 110v to motor side of switch, (black- black and white-white) if motor runs ok replace switch. If motor does not run check capacitor for proper valve, replace as needed. If cap tests ok and motor will not run check motor windings for melted white strings that bind wiring. If windings look burned most likely you will need to find used motor from repair center.

Wiring of 2hp motor

You need to take advice from the motor manufacturer or reconditioner to ensure you are wiring it correctly.

Typically a basic single phase motor will have a start winding and a run winding. That usually makes four wires for a reversible motor but that can be cut to three if the motor must run in one direction only so the three wires would be start, run and common.

The run is connected to the hot side of the supply and the start similarly connected to the hot side except the start capacitor will be in series. The common wire will require connecting to a neutral and of course the motor body will need a ground unless it is double insulated.

It should be possible to sort which is which using a sensitive ohmmeter.

The standard warranty on appliances is two years, contact Whirpool at (866) 698-2538 to check warranty status.

Regarding the motor, the motor is tested by energizing it directly, and reading volts from MCU (motor control unit) or timer control board.

Here diagrams and parts for your model.

Call Whirpool first.
