My Emerson model k55hxjcp-2593 electric fan motor has 5 wires connecting to the motor. The replacement motor only has 4 wires. I need to know how to connect the new motor seeing there is only 4 wires


the motor should have wireing diagram on side. i would expect 2 of the wires go to a run capacitor & the other 2 are your 110 or 220 depending on unit need.

Indoor fan barely turning


the three post capacitor has c for line voltage in, the f or fan is for the outdoor motor,and com or comp goes to start winding compressor.youll have to follow wires from indoor motor to find capacitor. to find wires to outdoor motor to capacitor you have line voltage and capacitor wires .look for schematic it would help or send colors of wires from both motors and compressor common,start .run.

Need to change a broken blower motor in RUUD central air unit. Old central air blower motor (GE electric) was connected with brown and orange wire to 15 MHD capacitor. Another orange wire from central air...


on the motor should be a diagram detailing the wires. brown white goes to either side of the capacitor and brown wire to other side of capacitor. hi speed goes to normally open contact on the indoor fan relay and the wire designated common on the motor goes to the other side of power from the relay contacts.

Central air conditoner outside unit


Well, the answer is yes. I have seen a bad capacitor cause a fan motor to run backwards. BUT..... After replacing the capacitor and WIRING it up the right way, everything should be fine. A lot of aftermarket condenser fan motors are reversible, so it can run counter-clockwise (CCW) or clock-wise (CW). However, most factory fan motors come one directional and on your specific unit, the air should always push out of the top. Running the unit with the fan going backwards will actually some-what do it's job, but damage other components like the compressor because it runs at higher operating pressures than what it is designed for.

Have someone else look at it! That's going to be the best advice I can give you. If they can prove that a capacitor caused the motor to permanently run backwards..... I want to know! Hope this helps and good luck with your unit.

You need to check the wiring to the limits and safety devices with are in a number of locations, make sure all connections are tight.The most common cause for the blower to run is the high limit device which is the one mounted above the burners on the flat metal panel with two wires.

Replacing a condenser fan motor from 3wire to 5wre can you tell me where the 5 go on a model 5505 m0898 16635


Hi, the numbers you have listed do not tell me anything of value. If this is a condenser fan motor outside your home, and you are installing a unit with 5 wires in place of one with 3, one of the wires from the old motor goes to the run capacitor on the F terminal. The new motor should have 2 brown wires, one with a white stripe on it. Take one of the brown wires doesn't matter which one, and tape the end up. You will not use it. Take the other brown wire and plug it on the run capacitor where you removed the other wire on the fan terminal. The 3 wires you have left, 2 are for your 220volt hot leads to run the motor.Look on your new motors data plate, and it will show you what 2 wires are L-1 and L-2. They will plug where you removed the other 2 wires from your 3 wire motor. The remaining wire you will tape off also. Very easy to do. Just follow what I said, and look for L-1 and L-2 on the new motor, and use those wires where you remove the 2 on the old motor. If its done right, and the voltage is right, you should be up and running.

Kenmore central air conditioning unit tripping breaker each time we turn it on.


The breaker tripping when you turn the unit on indicates a 'direct short' and 99 out of a 100 times the short will be either the outside fan motor or the compressor itself. Either way - you will need a qualified serviceperson to diagnose this problem correctly and make the needed repairs.
Best solution is to call AC person.
However, here's a good way you can get it down to either the fan motor or the compressor.
(1) With all power OFF - disconnect the wires to the fan motor
(2) turn on AC unit (a) if breaker trips it means the compressor is probably the shorted component. (b) if breaker DOES NOT trip and the compressor runs - it means the fan motor is shorted.
(3) If breaker tripped with the fan motor disconnected meaning the compressor is probably shorted you can then (with ALL POWER OFF) 'disconnect the wires going to the compressor' and re-connect the fan motor wires. Turn on power - and if fan motor runs (with compressor wires off) you know it's the compressor that is shorted.
After all this you will now know which of the two (compressor or fan motor) is shorted.
If it's the fan motor you can with 'limited mechanical experience' change the motor yourself, but if it's the compressor you will need to call a serviceperson because of the expertise needed to replace the compressor.

GE Central A/C Unit about 30 yrs old; condenser fan stops after a short time.


I gather that it is the outdoor fan motor that runs a bit then stops.

Fan motors that stop by themselves are overheating and going into self-protect. The fact that you replaced the motor and capacitor opens up a whole world of "which wire is in the wrong place". I could do this if I could see it, but I can't see it. You're probably going to wind up calling a service man to sort out the wiring.
