Replacing parts should be the same specification of unit to replace and and connecting to new to old one should only what you disconnect to the old should be connect to the new one just follow the previous,anyway if you lost the connection well it not easy job and or if you buy other brand you will lostalso in connecting circuit .In this case of no manuals qualified tech. should done this,but if you have knowledge basically electricity and you want to fix this, several factor shoul be taken.first you should have multi tester or clamp ammeter.there are factors motor does not run .There is thermistor on winding inserted in the connection of the motor this protect to burn out your motor.,if yuor motor heat or immerge a high current this will cut your power supply to the winding.that even you replace parts this wii not run,you have to replace thirmistor it looked a small resistor,check the ambien temp,volt sepc .Also check the winding if it is burn out, Also check the bushing and shafting if this are worn out. replaced.If you worn out shaft and bushing this run but suddenyl stop and it will ham until develop heat and burn the thermistor.In connecting the wire take the common line connect to one supply line.And take runningline capacitor connect to the selector "switch " one supply line connect to the terminal swicth.

1992 chevy C1500: Heat works on low speed, no medium, and high only works intermittantly.


On any other vehicle it sounds like the blower fan switch.
The fan switch provides power or ground to the resistor and there would be a high speed blower relay to bypass the resistor.
But in your case the fan switch is part of the controller.
I don't have a diagram for a 92 but the 94 model shows relays for low medium and high speeds. Each relay gets power from a fuseable link. The high relay gets power thru the low relay if the low relay is not engaged.
If you have the model with 3 relays you may need to check them.

Fan works on high and low ok but in medium it runs at low speed.


Sounds like the speed control switch has been replaced recently, or one of the capacitors in the black brick in the switch housing has failed. Most modern fans use a double capacitor for medium and low. High is wired straight across the run capactor (which is usually 2 wire by itself, or all three capacitors may be in one big black brick)

The symptoms you describe suggest that the speed capacitor has failed. Typically they are 5+5MFD, or two in one case On Medium both 5MFD capacitors are activated, but on low only one is activated. The capacitors serve as a "choke" that limits the amount of current getting to the motor (not voltage, but amperage)

Find out the manufacturer of the fan and if it is Hunter, their number is 1-901-745-9222. Tell them the model# of your fan and they shall get you hooked up with a new cap.

High speed does not work but low speed does. Is there an easy fix, or will this require a motor replacement to get both speeds working again? The cooler is a Mastercool model MC64C


If your motor only works on low speed and not on high speed first check to see if you have the proper voltage to high speed. Check with a voltmeter or multimeter, check from common on the motor to high speed on the motor at the switch. If you have the proper voltage then you have an open winding on high speed and the motor needs replaced. If you don’t have the proper voltage or any volts, then the switch is bad and needs replaced. This also will be the same if, medium speed won’t work and low speed does.

Hunter fan with remote control was 3 speed, now only 2 speed


It sounds like fan motor is okay. There are two motor windings -- one low speed, one medium speed. Low winding gives you low speed, medium winding gives you medium speed, both windings give you high speed -- so I would say if you get high speed, both windings are good.

The remote (the hand held transmitter) controls the speed by raising and lowering the frequency of the current which is 60 cycle coming to the fan ceiling box. If the fan speed -selector switch (usually a pull switch) is set to high, when the remote (transmitter) signals the receiver to change speeds, the frequency of the current is changed by the receiver (the receiver is usually in the fan housing).

Sounds like you'll need to replace the remote system -- these come in sets, both transmitter and receiver, and cost about $30. If you're not experienced with wiring fans, you should get an electrician to do the job.

Wipers do not work in intermittent position. They do work in low and high speeds but do not automatically return to the park position. They stop wherever you turn the switch off.


i belive that your wiper switch has gone out on the intermittent side. this is a very common problem.
I hope this helps you
Thanks

Replacing the wiper control unit on a 1999 honda accord


yes it will get worse-yes they can stop working all together-you must replace the arm on which the switch is attached connected to steering column- get a used one from junk yard and a book at library

Only works at high speed


the barector resistance would have worn out or would have broken in the rheostat so change that resistance then you would see ur fan working in low medium and high speeds
