Question about Heating & Cooling
Does this motor have a capasitor? Does the motor change out easily? Should I cut the wires and splice them or open the motor to disconnect the wires? Five wires: Black, brown, white, red, yellow

Your compressor is trying to restart after it shuts off which is causing a power draw down changing the sound of the fan speed change. Check voltage power supply and insure that the power supply cord is heavy enough to carry the necessary load.

The black and white wires get 220 from the contactor. The brown and brown/white go to the capacitor. I do hope you bought a matching capacitor to go with the new motor. They don't cost much and make the hook-up way easier.

Hi; How old is the unit. Sometimes the condensing coils get clogged and need to be cleaned. Or the compressor is not in operation due to an electrical problem or the compressor is out due to a safety feature called a thermal overload. This protects the compressor from failure to a high heat or pressure situation. Alot of consumers run to the need freon theory before checking a few other things. Take Your time and be carefull .I You do not feel confident in Your trobbleshooting skills call a qualified tech...alpharome416...P.S. If You are going to take on this complex task please remove power before doing anything like removing covers or electrical panels!!!

There should be a wiring diagram on the side of the new motor.
The brown and the brown w/ white go to the new capacitor you should have bought with the motor.
The black and white go to your L1 & L2 power source. The remaining wires must be capped off.

Hi, this is a different wiring diagram then what you have . The 2 brown/wht wires are for the run cap only. Black and white are t-1 and t-2. They sold you a motor that takes its own run capacitor to run it with just both brown wires. Take the diagram from the new motor back along with your original. They will give you the right run cap to go with this motor. Yes, the red wire is power to fire your existing cap and old motor. You will need another cap to run this motor. Don't put the 2 brn/white striped wires on the old cap! They have to be alone on there own run cap. Go back to the parts house and they will show you very fast the wiring diagram and give you the cap. This is a very easy fix when they give you what you need. Keep me posted and ask them to give you what you need to run the motor. A 5 uf run cap perhaps?
Keep me posted.
