Id suggest you take this set up back because there are several questions need answering before I can tell you what goes where. also you'll have to go and be femilure with the terminals on the run cap and the compressor also.
In lue of the setup you have,  ASK for a relay capicator hard start ALL N 1. 2 wires and a wire diagram on the kit make it easy to install and its self contained  It tjes up a little less room usually too. 
Hope this helps PLEASE GRADE ME ACCORDINGLY and GOOD LUCK.

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. The new motor is an A.O Smith...


For one, thank you for posting all the info, it really helps! On your new motor, the white has became your purple, black is black, and your brown/brown and white wires go to each side of the new capacitor, there should only be 2 terminals. You can leave the "Fan" terminal blank on the old capacitor now. Just be sure to attach the new capacitor somewhere secure, they are smaller, but can be a pain. So just to recap:
Black is still black.
White is what purple used to be (Com)
Brown on 1 side of new capacitor
Brown/White on opposite side of new capacitor.

Hope this helps get you to cooler days!

I have an arcoaire condenser. dual cap.


Yes, Red to Com, Compressor to Herm, Brown to Fan. You should also have another wire from the condenser fan going to the Com terminal.

I have a Ruud Air Conditioner and need to install a new capacitor, but I forgot how the wires were on the old one. Can you help me in tellilng me which wire goes where.


There should be 3 terminals on the capacitor marked "C" "F" and "H".
A wire from the high voltage contactor goes to the "C".
Another wire from "C" goes to the compressor.
These wires are usually red.
The "F" terminal has a wire going to the fan,usually a brown wire.
The "H" has a wire going to the compressor,usually yellow.
There should be a wiring diagram on the control box cover identifying the terminals,colors and number of wires.

I am installing a Mars 1/3 hp fan motor. It has a black wire,red wire, blue wire, yellow wire and (2) brown wire that go to a capacitor. May Furnace has Black power wire, red wire (speed) and white common....


Hello, Typically your common wire will be white, high speed- black, medium speed- yellow, medium low-blue, red- low. The motor could still run for a short time if it was wired wrong but will either trip a breaker or go off on it;s overload when it's gets hot.

Need to wire cap


I am assuming this is a combo fan and compressor capacitor.
In american air conditioners the cap has 3 sections all clear marked. The fan has an F and only 2 terminals, the compressor has a HERM (for hermedically sealed compressor) and only 3 terminals. The cap also Has a C for common with 4 terminals. What you want to do is connect a start wire from the fan which is usually a small plain brown wire to the F terminals. You would want to connect a start wire from the compressor which is a heavy wire to the Herm terminals. Then the compressor and fan both have a common wire those go to the C along with one side of the Power cord. The fan common wire can be purple or white. If you decide NOT to use the white wire for common you be sure to tape it off. Then you can use the brown wire with the white stripe fro common. The other side of the power cord will receive the RUN wires from the fan and the compressor. Note: If the fan has multiple speeds you must ONLY connect one speed at a time. Speeds are normally Black for high, Blue for medium and Red for low. So if your intent was to maybe bypass a switch or board you would tape off the blue wire and the red wire seperately and use the black wire for a high speed fan.

How do I wire a new condensor fan motor to the new capacitor? The old capacitor is longer and it has 3 terminals. the new capacitor is much smaller and oval. It has 2 terminals. the fan motor has 3 wires,...


Before attempting any of these recommendations, First disconnect all the power sources and check your wiring diagrams on the motor and condensing unit.
On the old capacitor if you look on the top near each of the three terminals. Are they marked, fan - C - herm? If they are that is a dual capacitor and that needs to stay because that is also your compressor capacitor.
The Red wire from the conductor is Run and it's connected to C on the old capacitor.
Follow the Yellow wire and see if it goes to the S or start terminal on the compressor, if it does then that is the Start wire for your compressor and it connects to herm on the capacitor.
For the fan motor a lot of times the wiring connections are printed on the motor label.
Check the label, Purple should be run and connect to C on the old capacitor.
Black should be Common and it connects to the opposite side of the contactor as the Red wire. If the Red wire connects to T1 then the Black wire connects to T2.
The Brown wire shoud be the start wire on the fan motor and it connects to the Fan terminal on the old capacitor.
Now if you want to use the new fan capacitor. Take the Purple wire from the motor and look for any marks (red paint or a dash) on or beside the terminals on the new capacitor. If there is an identifying mark then connect the Purple wire to that terminal, if no marks you can connect it to either terminal. Then you need a jumper wire from C on the old capacitor to the purple side of the new capacitor. Then take the brown wire and connect it to opposite terminal of the new capacitor.

Wires


2 brown wires go to a split capacitor if you have a dual cap which has three terminals marked comp fan com if u have this type of capacitor then the brown wire goes to fan and the brown and white gets capped with a wire nut. whenever replacing a fan motor you should also replace the cap or at least check the capacitance to see if it is still good. you have to check it with a meter that test microfarad.you can get a permanent split capacitor and mount it in there then u use the brown on one side and the brown and white on the other side it only has 2 terminals.
