SOURCE: have a draper compressor. not used much keeps

Compressors blow fuses/breakers for only a few reasons. The most common cause by using an extension cord. It is most often recommended to use more air line instead of a extension cord or at least one that is sufficient to handle the current draw of the compressor.

The next problem is too many items being used on the same circuit that you are using the compressor on. Ideally a compressor should be isolated from all other electrical devices own it's own dedicated circuit.

The last issue is an incorrect rating on the fuse/breaker or one that is worn out.

I hope one of these items takes care of your problem if not please let me know.

Diagram for hooking compressor to compacitor on Maytag 6000 btu air conditioner


If you have a dual capacitor, which has 3 posts, C - goes to Run on the compressor. Herm goes to start on the compressor. If you have a single capacitor Run from the compressor goes to the terminal on the capacitor that has a wire coming from one side of the contactor. The start wire goes to the other terminal on the capacitor without another wire attached to it.

How do I reconnect the capacitor?


Not easy to explain. The capacitor is split, it has two values, or like two capacitors connected internally with a center tap between them. Two capacitance values, maybe 5uf and 20uf, the lower value for the fan motor and the higher for the compressor, with terminals C-common, F-fan, M-compressor.
Capacitor terminal C is the center tap and that takes 3 connections, line (power) - fan line common to capacitor, and Compressor line common to capacitor. Notice the fan and compressor have a power line not common to capacitor, just power line.
Capacitor terminal F has one wire connecting to Fan terminal C, fan may have three or four terminal writes, two for power with one power being common to capacitor connection and the other power alone, two power connection wire leads. Fan motor third line is capacitor, connects to the capacitor alone. Four wire configuration fan motor is not likely your needs. Omit or ask again for further explanation.
Compressor is similar to fan, only with a capacitance value higher than for tha fan motor. Two power leads, one straight power, the other power lead connects to the capacitor power. The third compressor lead connects alone to the capacitor.
The with is to draw a diagram and level the colors of each lead and terminal lavels too. The motors nameplate may indicate wire color code, the a-c nameplate wiring diagram may be present in the control wron wiring compartment, the goal is to find clues or to trace each wire and verify what they connect or do, take notes on your drawing.
Basically the motor has three terminals, L1 - L2 - C, or C- S-R (Common, Start,Run)

Draper 180 at wiring diagram


Unfortunately that is not readily available unlike most US made welders. If you do not have the major parts list or basic manual, those can be downloaded here:
http://www.drapertools-online.com/b2c/b2citmdsp.pgm?pp_skmno=72228

The instruction manual includes the cable polarity connections for use with or without gas It also runds through the display information. If you just get 2 flashing bars- check the control board for a pico fuse which will resemble an epoxy capacitor and fpr failed electolytic capacitors.

If you are servicing it for a fault condition, check to make sure contactors are not welded together. If you have a wire feed issue, the SCR's or Triacs are the likely fault on the 24 volt control board, and if it is a display issue, check the electrolytic capacitors in the low voltage power supply for the board.

If no power to the gun, check the large contactor, the fuses in the primary and connections in the gun itself.

I have a 6 yr old lennox merit 10acc system and the compressor doesn't seem to be running as there is no cold air and line out of compressor is not cold/sweating like my 2nd (good) unit.


you cant check capacitor with power on it nor using volt setting.need micro ferred setting on meter and check with power off and wires removed. leads go as follow for fan one lead on "C" and one on fan. For compressor one lead on Common and one on HERM. Also be sure voltage on capacitor is correct 360V or 440V. 440V will work for either. Also double check micro ferred requierment on motor and compressor. If its been replaced before may have been replaced with incorrect size. It happens.

Looking far data sheet or equivalent circuit/connection diagram for a 97F9834 capacitor


You can find a datasheet located here. Page 14 contains your capacitor's information. As for a connection diagram, it's fairly simple. The dual capacitor (three prong) has a connection for fan, compressor, and common. Common (typically white) goes in the middle, compressor goes to herm, fan goes to fan. You should see the labels etched into the metal either on the side, top, or bottom. As for the colors of the fan and compressor, the brown wire should be for the fan, and the compressor's wire should be yellow. Of course, your system should contain a wiring diagram, which is usually attached to the door. Consult this diagram before assuming any wire colors I tell you are correct. Also, you should have some form of cutoff switch. Ensure this switch is OFF before doing ANY electrical work on your system. 220v in AC units WILL KILL YOU, especially coming off the capacitor. Best of luck!

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.

Have a Porter Cable 175 PSI, 25 gallon upright compressor. When you flip the switch, the motor buzzes, but does not start the compressor. The cylinders are free when hand turning. After a couple of...


On these larger compressors, the motor that turns the compressor,

will have one or two capacitors, the capacitor in conjunction with the

motor gives the compressor that extra push or torque that is required

to get it going. if the capacitor goes out, the compressor will not work,

the motor may work but will not have the strength to turn over the compressor..

depending on the size motor, it may be mounted on top, on the side or

even in a juntion box attached to the compressor, if you have to replace one

i recommend powering down or unplugging compressor and handle the

capacitor carefully, use insulated tools or gloves, a capacitor is like a battery

it will hold a charge, but like a battery it can be discharged, the only difference

with a battery and a capacitor, on a capacitor you can have thousands of volts.

it can be replaced just handle it safely, good luck!

OK, locate the terminals on the capacitor marked "HERM"(Compressor lead), "FAN", and "COM".(common)

HERM and COM remian as they are.

The wire going to "FAN" (usually brown) will be placed on either terminal of the new capacitor. (This is the ((usually brown)) wire comming off of the fan motor.) An additional wire needs to be run from the other terminal of the new capacitor to the "COM" on the old capacior.

What you are doing is bypassing the fan side of the old capacitor but still using the compressor side of the old Cap.

The fan should have a wiring diagram on it to help identify the wires if there is no brown wire. The other two wires will be identified on the wiring diagram as well, but one typically goes to the contactor and the other to the board.
